A SUMMER WEDDING

I have missed you!! Blogging is quickly becoming my favorite hobby, and having barely posted over the past two weeks was very painful. I have to say though, I was a very busy girl.

My friend Veronica got married this weekend!! I was in the wedding party along with a few of my other friends to witness her special day. We had such a fun week full of wedding activities! I have never been in a wedding before, unless you count the time I was the two year old flower girl. Needless to say this was a way to kick it off right.

First, we had to finish up all the supplies for the bachelorette party. This included the favors, prizes and sashes for bridesmaids and the bride to be to wear.

The bachelorette party was so much fun! We ate at a very nice restaurant in downtown Erie called Bertrand's Bistro (where no one wanted to venture into the French cuisine, so we all ordered chicken), and then started on a scavenger hunt. Teams had to find different people and objects, or complete tasks at bars for points. Of course my team, the silver diamond ring team dominated, and we won some Starbucks gift cards!!



The next morning, Veronica's family friend Michelle treated the bridal party to a spa day. Most of us got pedicures, but we decided that if you are at a spa, you need to do it the right way and wear a robe. I got a gold color on my toes. I love it so much! It is fun and sparkly but still a little bit toned down at the same time. I need a bottle.

Saturday was the big day! We got to the salon early, and had lots of fun there. It was a very emotional moment when Veronica finally put her veil on!



The ceremony was a Catholic one, in the large Cathedral in Erie. It was a beautiful venue, and a beautiful day to get married. We then partied the night away celebrating the new couple.

 
I was so glad to be a part of my friend's special day, and I know this is a memory we will all cherish forever. Congrats Jim and Veronica!!


(Now we have our own little "bride" at our house! She throws her bouquet and everything!)
