Wedding Weekend

My brother in law got married almost two weeks ago and it just so happened that it was on a weekend when the girls had Friday and that Monday off which worked out perfectly because we had three whole nights full of wedding fun!  It started out Thursday night with a rehearsal.  We arrived a little early so it was fun selfies in the car with the girls while we waited.



Daddy was in the wedding so we watched him patiently  



I loved the backdrop where they were saying their vows it was a perfect spot for a picture.

After the rehearsal we all went to dinner for some delicious Italian food.



Cousins hanging out



Friday was the day of the wedding and since the venue was far away we decided to stay in a hotel for the night.  Daddy had to get ready early for pictures so the girls and I stayed back in the hotel and hung out for awhile before we had to get ready.


I enjoyed reading through a magazine while they watched tv


Kayla and I played some games and then we got dressed up and ready for the night.


The boys were having too much fun taking pics of themselves and texting them to us.


My girls looking so beautiful and grown up!


We had fun saying hi to so many family members before the wedding even began.  It was fun seeing everyone all dressed up!




The girls were excited for the ceremony, it had been a long time since they had been to a wedding.


Little cousin Tessa as the flower girl.


This goofy guy belongs to me!




I love this picture of Tessa and her daddy, he's trying to persuade her with m&m's to go sit down and she is not having it.



The ceremony was simple and sweet, just the way I like it!


Some quick family pics before the fun begins!








They had a fun photo booth at the reception



Brooklyn LOVES a good photo booth.  I had to remind her that other people would want to use it too so not to hang out there all night.  She came home with a lot of pictures!



We had a great time at the wedding but were so so so tired.  We grabbed the bride and groom for a few quick pics before we headed off to bed.


The next morning we headed down for breakfast.  Brooklyn was very happy about the breakfast buffet 


She enjoyed feeding her sister some of her meal as well.  These girls are always so happy to stay in a hotel.


After we checked out of the hotel we drove all the way back home and took long naps because we had to head back out to my mother in laws for the day after party with family.  I was so happy we all got a good nap in because it was gonna be another late night.


My other brother in law is in a band so we got to hear them play at the after party.




The girls got to play with their cousins that were not at the wedding the night before and they all had a blast hanging out together.





which meant we got to have a good time too!




It was a very busy three days but we had a whole lot of fun!  We had all day Sunday to relax and the girls also had that Monday off too so we got a lot of rest in after all that fun.
