Wedding #2

The second wedding was held in Toledo, Ohio.....which means I had to drive 2.5 hours at night after reception #1 to get to the wedding #2 bridesmaids slumber party!! And after such a big day it was very difficult to drive with my eyes open. Stopping at a rest stop and buying a large coffee and a large mountain dew and chugging them both may or may not have happened that night. :) 

It was so fun to spend that whole next day with family, since my brother was the one getting married. Rachel (my new sister-in-law) didn't want Austin (my brother) to see her in her wedding dress until she walked down the isle (how awesome, right?) So us girls spend the morning getting all dolled up, then drove over to the church for the ceremony....and since I wasn't able to make it to the rehearsal the night before....I was clueless about where to go, how to walk, where to turn, sit, stand, and who I was even going to walk out of the church with! So please just imagine how flabbergasted my brain was at this point! 
Anyway, the ceremony was wonderful! A majority of the people there were laughing a majority of the time!! Gotta love a humorous minister! Anyway, it all went well, as in nobody tripped. 

  To the left we have my NEW SISTER-IN-LAW!!!!! Which, incase you couldn't tell, I am very excited to have a sister-in-law!!! She is so sweet and just so  much fun!!! I can't wait to have her around for lots of Holidays in the future!! :) And to the left is my brother, Austin, who yes in fact looks very handsome!! I just love the grey suit!

And at last, the moment you have waited for.......The Wedding Party!!! DON'T YOU JUST LOOOOOVVVVVEEEEEE ALLLLLLLLLLL THE DIFFERENT COLORS?!?!?!?!
I know I do!! I think the idea is just so fun, and the bouquets matched all of us very well, and the silver accents to our dress (the ribbon and shoes) matched Rachel's silver dress perfectly!!! And pictures were taken at the Toledo Botanical Gardens!!
Can you find me? I'm the one that looks like an apple!  

I drove to the bridesmaids slumber party the night before with a huge knot in my stomach. I DIDN'T know ANY of these girls!!! So I was really nervous to spend the night with them and then spend the whole next day with them! But they were seriously the sweetest people in the world!!! They made me feel so welcomed!! From the moment I walked through the door I knew we were going to be friends because when I walked through the kitchen, I heard "Is that Bethany?! BETHANY!!!! COME CUDDLE ON THE BED WITH ALL 7 OF US!!!! WE GOT JUNKFOOD!!!!" These girls are awesome and soooo much fun!!! Even though they are all a lot older than me, we all got along soooo well and had a blast!!! And seriously, how adorable is this picture? 

Well I hope this gave you an idea of all the fun I had in one weekend!! And I hope you enjoyed the few pictures I posted!! Hope you all have an awesome weekend! 

Peace. Love. Hope.
