Wedding Bliss

Our first stop (after a night in Virginia) on our trip home was to Kent Island Maryland for Nicole and Philip's wedding. I had been anxiously awaiting this weekend since Christmas becuase all of our high school girls would be together again and I miss that so much!
We arrived Thursday early evening to BBQ with some of the bridal party. It was a perfect night on the Chesapeake to stare at the breath taking scenary and stay up and talk with good friends outside late into the night.

Friday Zann played golf while the girls got pampered at the spa and had a yummy lunch.
Friday night was also picture perfect weather. The rehearsal went smoothly and we celebrated the night before the wedding with a crab feast at the beach club. We saw great pictures of Nicole and Philip growing up and toasted to them coming together!

We watched a photo shoot of the bride and groom

And laughed until we about cried
After seeing the quality of the light in this picture is when we decided we needed a new camera but unfortunately didn't get it until the end of our trip.

And then the wedding day!
We woke up at the crack of dawn to begin the beauty process. It was so much fun to be at Nicole's house all day and see the process of the wedding being put together. And what a beautiful finished product it was! And everything was perfect from the ceremony,

To the bridesmaid dresses and of course the bridesmaids
the picture would not flip....grrr
to the flowers,

to the tent.

We danced the night away to the awesome band and loved every minute of the whole weekend.
And best of all got to see how happy one of my best friends is!!!
They did not stop smiling the whole night :)

Here are some other pictures of the festivities...
