Weekend Review 69: September Wedding

Over the weekend Fall showed up for a sneak preview and brought everyone outside to enjoy the crisp air.

Friday was a nice low key night with the Mr. We picked up American Sniper and takeout from a Chinese restaurant down the street from his house. I love nights like that, especially after a busy week at work.

Saturday morning I took a walk around two lakes by my house. I could have walked all day if I didn't have a wedding later in the day that I needed to get ready for. There were so many people out and about walking, biking, running, sailing. The beaches were empty, but the people were out like winter is tomorrow.

After my walk I had just enough time to get ready before I had to be at Mikes and pick up Kari and her boyfriend for the wedding.

My cousin got married on Saturday in her now husbands family home yard. It was so beautiful! From the moment you walked up the driveway and into a large white tent set with tables decorated with flowers from my cousins business Thistle & The Rose, to the back yard with a bar and dance floor and even further back, white chairs leading you to the ceremony.

It was 100% a family affair with her sisters as her bridesmaids, his brothers as his groomsmen, and the brides brother as the minister and our grandpa as the ring bearer since she was given our grandmothers wedding ring.

I love going to weddings where you know the couple so well, they've been together for years, and you know it's all just meant to be. You could tell from the smiles on their faces the whole night just how happy they were.

Dinner was a pig roast and oh so delicious. The caterers dressed the pig for the occasion.

After dinner they had a fruit and angel food cake buffet which is my favorite type of cake. Plus all the whipped cream you could think of. Heaven.

If you ever go to one of my family weddings, you are guaranteed to have a packed dance floor and this wedding was no different. We whipped and nae nae'd, we cupid shuffled, we danced with babies and all around had one heck of a good time.

These are the people I'm lucky enough to call family. Now who's getting married next? We need another wedding on the calendar!

Congratulations Cole and Megan!
