And we're back! I needed an extra day yesterday to finish editing the photos I took and coming down from what was one of the best weddings of all time. It was one of those weddings where you were overcome with happiness and love watching two really good people marry each other. So much fun at the #duvows. Here are a few photos...
Early morning flight to Omaha on Friday. Little different scenery, no?
Got to Omaha with a few hours to spare before meeting the gals for a bridal luncheon. Al was pumped because our hotel was right across from The College World Series that was going on. So he watched baseball and I lunched (and took no photos - gasp!).
A few hours later, it was time for the rehearsal!
And the rehearsal dinner. See that faint rainbow? I think it was good luck. Aside from the torrential downpour and thunderstorm late that night, the rest of the weekend was beautiful and everything went off without a hitch.
Wedding day! The beautiful bride getting all dolled up. She looked STUNNING.
Meanwhile, this is what I looked out of the hair and makeup chair. Frightening! Thankfully, the woman later combed out the curls. It was touch and go there for awhile. ;)
But back to the bride. What a knock out. And she still looked like herself, which is always nice for a bride to look like herself. And that dress? Oh I loved her dress. It had a hand-made lace bolero that she wore for the ceremony. For the rehearsal, it came off and a jeweled Kate Middleton-esque belt was added. Beyond amazing.
And they're married! So happy!
Some of the details. They used their "logo" on everything from coozies to the welcome bags to the programs. Loved the consistency. And the flowers were beautiful! My bouquet even had some rosemary in it. Thumbs up.
At the reception venue - an old train station in Omaha. It is pretty impressive. Old school architecture, art deco painted ceilings, and beautiful windows. Look at all that beautiful light! Also, yay America! (C&M live in Singapore, btw.)
The sparkle continued on the table. Gold chargers and candelabras twinkled in the space. And even more windows in the dinner location for some more of that incredible light. Speaking of light, they got married on the summer solstice - the longest day of the year. So the light stayed immaculate long into the night.
And time to party! So Michael, the groom plays guitar (very well, I might add). You may recall some of our sing-a-longs from when they lived in New York. Michael and his brother sang a few songs and the band would NOT let them get off stage. Like nothing I've seen before at a wedding. So. Much. Fun.
And then, all of the sudden, it was over. But first, we took a selfie (and in my summer solstice headband that they gave out - loved that touch).
A flight home, a Taco Bell dinner (you knew I would right?), and some #duvows withdrawals later and things were back to normal.
What an incredible wedding. Two insanely fun, loving, caring, and talented people (from two amazing families, I'll add) coming together forever. Now if we could just get them back to New York, I'll be happy... :) So much love C&M. So much.
Hope everyone had a great weekend! How is June almost over?!
