Wedding Bells

This past weekend I had a crazy, busy, exhausting, fun filled wedding weekend. Friday night I got to spend some time with my brother and sister...and Dan. It was the perfect night to be outside for a rehearsal dinner.

And on Saturday......the reason everyone was here!!The bride and groom with their matchmaker.
The reception was held downtown at the City Museum. The museum itself is hands down one of the coolest places I have ever been to. You must put this on your list of places to go, you will not be disappointed. Between the aquarium, the 7 story slide, the ferris wheel on the rooftop, or the bus suspended over the roof there is something for everyone. The beer and wine bar doesn't hurt either!!

On the top floor of the museum is a room for parties and reception, which is where we dined and danced last Saturday night. Instead of 1 big wedding cake, the bride had smaller cakes on each table, this was perfect with the family style dinner. I thought the tables were just beautiful.
My dear friend Katie, and brother of the groom, whom I have known my entire life.
The best thing about weddings.....

everybody is so damn happy!!!
and of course at the end of the night, instead of taking the elevator....
we all took the slide!!
which is a little tricky in a dress, heels, and after some wine!!
