Hanging up the Bouquet!!!

I had the privilege of being Matron of Honor in one of my closest and dearest friend's wedding this past weekend. Lauren Altman (Now Poole!) and I have been close friends since high school and have even known each other since the elementary days! She has always been such a wonderful encouragement and support. She is always someone I can turn to and laugh with; she's always there for a good chick flick night and she makes a great partner in crime when conquering the sales at the nearest mall or outlet center!! I have many memories of the crazy things we have done together and will always cherish the memory of being a part of her beautiful wedding day!
As this was the 13th wedding in which I have been a bridesmaid, (yes, that's right-- with four brothers and a LOT of single friends, I had become a career bridesmaid!) I have decided to hang up my bouquet and retire as a bridesmaid. And most of my friends are all married off! Hahah! Glad it could end with my sweet friend Lauren!!!!

The Bride and her MOH!

Getting Glammed up!

I was able to spend a few minutes with my dear friend and former college roommate, Viviane. She was also a SEBTS gal and has since moved back to Florida to marry and become a great school teacher! She has recently learned that she will be a mommy later this year! I cannot wait to share in the joy of such a joyous occasion as when my sweet friend becomes a mom!
Love you E!

The reception was brief but I was also able to spend a bit of time with my Heidi!
It was such an unexpected treat to be able to see her for a few minutes at the wedding reception and made me miss her even more! We are meeting for a "girl's weekend" in a month or so, and I can hardly wait to have her all to myself for three days of sun and fun.. and shopping. ;)

My handsome husband wearing my favorite suit! Isn't he is so good lookin'? I love being married to him! He makes my life one beautiful memory after another. Even the mundane is meaningful when you are married to your best friend!

A funny shot of the Bride packing for the honeymoon!

The Bride and her MOH had to make a Starbucks run!!!
One Iced Caramel Macchiato and One Iced Skinny Vanilla Latte, please!


Did I mention that I love this guy? Did I mention how agreeable he was all weekend and how unselfishly he let me spend almost two days with the Bride to be? What a catch!
