Weekend Wedding

Hope you all had a nice weekend :). We had another busy wedding filled weekend. Below is a summary with lots of pictures.

Friday: Up early and out the door by 6 am. Drove to Virginia for the wedding rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. The dinner was Hawaiian themed and was held in a park. It was very laid back and a lot of fun.

Josh and I (I wore the multi dress to the rehearsal dinner):
There was a LOT of drinking that took place on Friday night. I didn't join in, but did help form the beer-sphere seen below:


Saturday: Up early again and snuck in 6 miles on the gym treadmill before the wedding. The groomsman and groom messing around pre-wedding:


Josh and I (there were like three cameras clicking away here so we're both looking at different ones haha):
The ceremony was beautiful! Here is a picture of the gorgeous bride (in a dress her mom MADE) and the handsome groom:


One of the best parts of the wedding was that Josh's parents were also invited! Here is a picture at the cocktail hour of Josh's parents (left), Josh, and two of Josh's friends, Ryan and Michelle:


And me and some of the dudes:


The reception was a blast filled with good food and dancing. Below is a picture of Josh, me, and Josh's parents:


and Josh and his friend Andrew:


They provided the BEST vegetarian dish I have ever had at a wedding. Veggies and a phyllo purse filled with Israeli couscous and more veggies all served with a black bean sauce(YUM!):


We crashed HARD last night and were up early early again this morning.
Sunday: Since I knew I wouldn't have enough time either this am or this pm to fit in my entire workout, I decided to divide it up. I hit up the hotel gym for three miles running on the treadmill before we left for SC. Upon returning home, I went food shopping, did another three mile run outside, and did TONS of laundry. We also picked up Franky and I gave him a bath.
Our friend Jeremy came over for dinner. He and Josh had burgers and grilled fries:


I had grilled peaches and veggies with marinutta sauce:



I also had some fruit and cereal on the side (what a random dinner ;)). Now, I am watching football and considering going to sleep. What was the best part of your weekend?
