This Wedding Wednesday is especially near and dear to my heart, as Bianca is one of my very best friends in the world. I was lucky enough to stand up next to her as she married Bobby, a day I won't soon forget. Not only was this the first wedding I've been in, it's also the first of a string of weddings that will happen in the next year for some of my favorite ladies. The wedding age is finally upon me, and I'm thrilled!
Bianca hosted the sweetest bridesmaid brunch for all of us bridesmaids. We drank mimosas and celebrated the final moments of her singledom. Mini doughnuts may have happened. I mean at that point, your bridesmaid body isn't going to change...right? Might as well indulge! We all stayed together the night before the wedding, and let me tell you, waking up with your best friend on her wedding day is one of the most amazing things in the world. The girl was glowing.
We all got ready together in the suite. Girls in robes, blow dryers whirring and the tipsy giggles of delicious mumm champagne filled the room. Bobby impressively sent over a stack of wedding day presents, all wrapped in custom weiner dog wrapping paper with her pup's name "milo" stamped all over it. Even better? Inside one of the well wrapped boxes was the gorgeous Rifle Paper Co. recipe box! Gah! I just love that thing.
The ceremony was absolutely beautiful. It was held in a small catholic church on the island. The room was filled with 300 members of Bianca & Bobby's relatives, friends, close family and more adorable kids than you could imagine! I wish I had more photos, but that would have been odd up there with a camera.
My mom and Chris were out there cheering on the new couple, which was an amazing feeling knowing they cared enough about my friend to make themselves available to be there.
The magical evening ended with all kinds of cake, a moo time gelato cart, and the grand finale - lanterns. It was absolutely perfect. My heart is still so full of love for Bianca & Bobby. Congratulations!
