One of my very best friends got married this weekend, and it was definitely a weekend to remember.
The weekend started out by meeting Jennie for mani pedis downtown... I was debating between bright blue toes and something a little more neutral, but decided to go blue. Lo and behond, Sam was also rocking blue nails for the weekend (as her "something blue" nonetheless!). That's one example of the kind of bride Sam was - something traditional with her own Sam spin on it.
We took the train out to the burbs, and another bridesmaid picked us up and took us to the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. (Sidenote: we thought there was going to be a restroom in the train station and there wasn't. Normally wouldn't be a big deal, but we needed to change in to our rehearsal dinner dresses. Let's just say there was some creative maneuvering going on in that train station).
After the rehearsal, the group headed over to the rehearsal dinner venue - only two blocks away. It was held at a brewery, which was cool. Bonus: it's actually the same place I met the groom for the first time, at Sam's birthday celebration two and a half years ago.
After the rehearsal dinner it was off to the maid-of-honors home nearby for a bridesmaid slumber party in anticipation of Sam's big day the next morning...
(Post about the wedding day coming soon!)
