Wedding Weekend Happenings

August 12, 2009 at 6:35 PM (Friends, Wedding)

Two of our best friends, Heather and Adolfo, were married this past Saturday. I was one of her bridesmaids along with Blair and Donna. Ben and I made our journey to NC late Thursday night. We arrived at Blair and Jamie’s house around 11 PM and went to bed soon thereafter.

Blair and I were up super early the next morning (5:30 AM). We left the guys to have a “guy date” and we met Donna and Heather at the historical house where we spent the night with Heather celebrating her last night as a single woman. The house is owned by Heather’s mom’s company and sits in Old Salem in Winston-Salem, NC.  It was awesome and I am so grateful for the opportunity to stay there!  On the outside, the house appears small, but on the inside it has 3 levels and a ton of great qualities.  Some of the awesome features include 3 full bathrooms, a huge kitchen, 2 fireplaces, and 2 huge dining tables.

We then made a pit stop at Krispy Kreme before heading to the church.  What’s a wedding without Krispy Kreme?  😉  We spent the entire day decorating the church in preparation for the wedding reception.  The rehearsal dinner and the rehearsal itself was that evening.  I think we all got teary eyed at the rehearsal when we saw Heather coming down the aisle.  We spent the late evening goofing off at the house and watching an emergency dance DVD that was great entertainment.  I’m not sure how much we learned though.

We were all up bright and early on the morning of the wedding.  We spent a few hours at the hair salon getting our hair did.  Fun times! Before heading to the church, Blair and I hung back and left a little surprise for Heather and Adolfo.  We formed a heart on the bed using red rose petals and left a bouquet of flowers.  I think it turned out nice!

The wedding itself was absolutely beautiful.  I’ve never been to a Catholic ceremony or mass before Saturday.  The ceremony was delicate, tender, and very special.  Heather was beautiful and Adolfo was handsome.  None of us tripped or did anything else embarrassing, which is always quite the accomplishment.  The reception turned out to be awesome.  The atmosphere was romantic and classy.  We all shook our groove thang and boogied to the music.  It was truly a blast and we were so honored to be a part of it all.

On a negative note, Ben and I wear rear ended while in a traffic jam on the interstate.  The damage was minor and we were ok, but it still sucks!
