Friday night we went to Maureen's rehearsal dinner. I loved it! It was a bbq in their back yard. So much food, family and fun!
Saturday was her big day! If you aren't familiar, Maureen is my Little from Theta Nu and was one of the only people I knew when I moved to Chicago. Needless to say, we became even better friends after college and I love her dearly! I was so excited to celebrate her wedding because she deserves the best - and got the best! Her husband Mac is awesome!!! They were beaming the whole time and their happiness was definitely contagious. She of course looked stunning, too!
That morning Daniela and I helped to decorate the picnic grove that hosted the ceremony and reception. I am not exaggerating when I say that we had SO much fun and the weather was perfect. Yay!
We also changed at Panera and did our makeup in the car. Quite an adventure!
Here's our red light selfie:
Andrew cleaned up real nice, too!
Here's more from the day:
Here's my favorite that Andrew took:
All of Maureen's special touches were evident: from her mother's wedding dress that she repurposed for herself, to the bridesmaid dresses she made, the taco and pie bars, the homemade bunting and other DIY decor, etc. It was such an amazing day!
Then there was an after party at Studio Be! I was too busy dancing to take a bunch of photos, but here's one!
Sunday was amazing. In my mind, Sundays are made for Mass, grocery shopping, lounging on the couch, catching up with family and/or friends on the phone, wedding planning and making a nice meal. Luckily we did allll of those things AND face-timed with Lizzie and Kate!
