This past weekend I was given the honor of standing up in one of my best friends' wedding. It turned out to be the most gorgeous fall day and to say that Brittney and Erik were both beaming is an understatement. Everybody was just so incredibly happy and you couldn't help but gush over how wonderful that is.
On friday all the girls met up in the morning to get their nails done and do lunch before the rehearsal dinner.
On Saturday morning we all met bright & early at the salon for mimosas, snacks, hair & makeup.
Me & the beautiful bride
We all finished getting ready at the wedding site, which was The Wilds golf course in Prior Lake, Minnesota.
Brittney's wedding colors were purple and light gray (or in "bride talk" they were aubergine and silver). I can't make fun, my wedding colors were not purple and green, they were orchid and clover.

the gorgeous late afternoon ceremony
One of our other close friends Becca did a reading that she actually wrote. It was the most beautiful reading that got everyone choked up. I asked her if I could have a copy of it to keep in my house.
The happy couple
These photos of Britt were taken just a few moments before she walked down the aisle. She was getting really nervous and teary so we played her favorite song (Poison, by Bell Biv Devoe) to pump her up. It was such a fun moment to have with her and the all the girls.
The rest of the night flew and it was so fun. We had a delicious dinner followed by dancing and time in the photo booth.
These were her favors- lotto tickets! We spent an afternoon making these and it turned out really cute.
Britt & Erik used the same photographer we had for our wedding so it was fun to see Jen again- here are a few of the gorgeous photos she took that day!
It was such a fun day. Seeing your friends so completely happy is such an awesome thing. The day was beautiful and everybody had a blast! I can't wait to see what else these two do together in life.
