Wedding of the Year

This post is a bit delayed...and I have no excuses as to why, I've just been a bit lazy the past couple of weeks :)

The hubby's brother, Marc and fiance Britt finally got hitched two weeks ago! It was a really special wedding, of course, because it was Nick's brother, but we also got to officially welcome Brittany to the family.

They lucked out and had a gorgeous weekend weather-wise for their big day and everything was perfect. Marc looked great and Brittany was gorgeous. Nick was the best man, I was a bridesmaid and our little guy was ringbearer - he was oh-so-cute in his tuxedo and Chuck Taylor's! Here's a recap of the weekend...I'm bummed I didn't get any pics of little man in his decked out wagon with the "Here Comes the Bride" chalkboard on the back, but I know once the prof pictures are back we will have plenty.

Rehearsal Day
On Friday, the men got up early to golf & drink, while the ladies had our own plans in mind. I got up early and brought little man to day care for the day (I figured that would be better than him being drug in and out of places all day long) and got my nails done. Then I met some of the bridesmaids and the mamas at Mimi's Cafe for brunch, follwed by pedis and cocktails at Legacy Nails.

Before we knew it, I had to speed home to get ready for the rehearsal, get the hubby cleaned up and then we picked up little man from day care - changing him in the back of the Jeep at the church!

After Rehearsal we headed to Charlie's on the Lake for dinner with family and close friends. It was a great night and we managed to wear Cruz out from being passed around from person to person - and headed home at a relatively reasonable time...for us at least.

Wedding Day
Saturday brought on the big day. While the hubby sat at home writing his best man speech, little man and I headed to the salon to get our hair done with the gals.

The wedding was beautiful and the reception a blast - we couldn't keep Cruzer off the dance floor!  My parents took little man home for us so we could enjoy the night. After the reception we all headed to Caddyshack and then back to the hotel. The day and night were perfect - I don't think Marc & Britt could've planned it any better.

The Day After
Early the next morning, we awaited Cruz to be dropped off at the hotel by my family and then headed to a brunch with family and the wedding party put on by Grandma Carol.  After brunch was the present opening, relaxing and recapping the weekend.
