This weekend was so much fun! Sadly, I didn't make it out on Thursday night for all the pre-marital fun, but between Friday and Saturday it was TONS of fun!
Friday was the rehearsal dinner, so the rehearsal was at the Hilton (where the wedding was) and that's when I formally met all of the other bridesmaids (super super nice, sweet girls). I will say that I did get told to walk slower on more than one occasion (including the night of the wedding lol) but it was fun and my escort, Matt, was super funny so that helped! After the rehersal we went to Rigatoni's in Mesa for dinner. YUMMY! It was sooo good I wanted to eat off other people's plates. lol.
Saturday was just amazing. Jess looked even more beautiful than I could imagine. Adam looked super handsome. It was so cute because Jess came down in the elevator from the 8th floor (it was soo cool, I wish I would have done it! lol) and when she walked down the aisle, I looked at Adam and sure enough, he was crying. So cute. The ceremony was just beautiful, and reminded me of the promises that I made to Bry. After the ceremony was a little cocktail/app time while we took pictures (I'm now a professional smiler lol). Then came the reception....
So, down stairs in the Hilton in Mesa there used to be like a night club and that is where the reception was... so so cool!! It was all dark and there were candles glowing, a beautiful ice sculpture (that had a heart in the middle and I wanted so bad to stick my head in it and take a pic, but I thought Jess would kill me right there), and VERY, VERY yummy food! :) It was a great night. The toasts were beautiful, Adam made me cry with his... and you could feel the love. Oh! And I DANCED kind of a lot (for me it was a lot)!! It was really fun! My feet still hurt (of course as soon as the pictures were done I took my shoes off!). All in all, it was just an amazing weekend!
I am so excited for Jess and Adam! I am so honored to have been a part of such a beautiful event that left me feeling renewed and thankful for my husband.
Oh, one more thing that was fun this weekend! (besides the awesome wedding) Bry and I found a house! After a ton of prayer we've decided to move to Mesa and we found a house! With a pool! I'm so excited! Though I am sad to leave my ward and my calling, I know that we aren't in the place we are needed any longer. So, in mid June come out and visit and take a dip in our new pool!! :) Oh, and it's just 1 mile from Jess and Adam- in the same sub-division. lol.
