Weekend Wrap-Up: The Kearns Wedding!
So this happened this weekend! One of my best friends (and my old roommate!) got married last night to the love of her life. As Kaylee's roommate, I feel like I had a special peek into the anxiety-ridden adventure known as wedding planning, so it was such a wonderful experience to watch her wedding dream become a reality on the big day.
The morning-of involved wearing matching floral robes given to us by the bride, drinking endless mimosas and feeding each other fruit for the sake of photographs. We cried a lot and laughed even more. I made a conscious effort to look around and take in every moment, because I knew it would all be over in a flash...and it was. The evening was spent under twinkly lights in what felt like real "fall" weather. There wasn't a drop of rain, and there also wasn't a dry eye in the house (err, in the garden) while Kaylee and Ryan read each other their vows. It was indeed a night to remember.
It hasn't even been 24 hours yet and I'm already depressed because it's all over. Besides her older sister Brittany, I hardly knew who these girls were a year ago. Fast forward to post-all things wedding related, and I can officially stop calling them "Kaylee's friends" and start calling them my own. I mean really, how cool is that?
Alas, it is back to reality. I plan on doing a lot of nothing tonight in preparation for another crazy week ahead. Who told me it was a good idea to go back to school again? WHO?!
