Another wedding in the books! It was now my friend Kate’s turn. Her and I have been friends since kindergarten and have tons of memories from Girl Scouts and Super Nintendo of course. I actually stumbled across this photo of us from one of my birthday parties back in the day. I thought it would be perfect to frame for Kate. In this picture we probably were secretly planning to get married in the same year ;) I love Kate’s combed back hair.

It was over Memorial Day so it turned into a celebration weekend for the bridal party. It was so nice to have our group of friends together three nights in a row. Kate’s aunt Rita is actually a hair stylist so she and two of her assistants offered to do our hair. Rita opened her home to us and it was so much more personable than going to a salon. I also was persuaded to have my makeup done as well. I was pretty apprehensive because I didn’t want to look like a freak but I loved the products she used. I am considering doing it for my wedding now.

The bride was stunning. Isn’t her dress and hair perfect? The venue was actually at Geneva National where dailycupofkate and I met and worked as servers for a few summers! It was nice to get waited on instead of having to serve rich golfers. The reception was a blast. A few guests were even reportedly kicked out for having a little too much fun! Open bar will do that to you.
