Marvelous Monday Wedding Weekend

by forloveofcarrots on July 7, 2014

I hope you all had a marvelous weekend! We certainly did!

On Thursday morning we took off for Maryland. After very little traffic (seriously, we got so lucky!) we arrived in Maryland around 3:30. We checked in to the hotel and I went off to the rehearsal. It was raining pretty bad Thursday afternoon and I felt awful for the wedding going on that evening.

The rain let up enough for us to rehears outside and head over to dinner. Dinner was at an Irish pub in the area, while the food went un-pictured I cleared my plate which had salmon, mashed potatoes and veggies.

After our bellies were full we all headed to the hotel to catch some sleep before the big day!

Friday morning all the bridesmaids met at the venue to get hair and makeup done. Rachel found some great hair dressers, that were quick and efficient when it came to doing our hair.

I opted to not get my makeup done, I have weird trust issues with people doing makeup and am always convinced I will look like a clown.

Rachel and Scott did first look pictures and they let the bridal party watch. It was so great to see Scott’s face when he saw how beautiful Rachel looked.

After pictures it was time to start the ceremony, the ceremony started around 6 and was very sweet, Rachel’s uncle married them and Scott and Rachel wrote their own vows which was very special!

After the ceremony we took a couple more pictures and then headed to cocktail hour for a bit before it was time for us to be introduced! We all walked into the song #selfie.

The rest of the night was spent eating, drinking and dancing!
