Hiiiiiiii everyone! I’m back from a whirlwind past couple of weeks which culminated in one of my closest friends getting married!! I’ve been to what seems like a billion weddings in the past 5 years or so, but this one was truly special (and not just because I was standing in it :P). Honestly, I don’t know if I can express my happiness in words, but let’s just say it was AMAZING, lovely, wonderful, glorious, heartwarming, awesomely fun…what else can I say? It was the BEST
The month began with the bachelorette party, followed by the bridal shower the next week, and then this past weekend, the wedding itself – which was held at White Point Beach Lodge, a really beautiful ocean-side resort here in Nova Scotia. We stayed for two nights and it was most excellent – a fantastic gathering of friends and family with a lot of laughs and a lot of love. As you all probably know about me, I like to party – and of course there was no exception this time around! There were some seriously late nights, even the night before the wedding (we’re talking past 4am – but the bride was up ’till almost 3am so I didn’t feel so bad!), but I powered through and actually felt pretty great the entire time. I did the makeup for the entire bridal party plus the mother of the bride without a problem, and everyone looked fab! Here’s a full shot of the bridal party:
So good, right? The bride wanted neutral dresses but we had leeway to chose whatever we wanted – I think it came out awesome! Three of the four dresses were bought from ASOS.com, for less than $50 – you can’t beat that!!
I couldn’t find an appropriate shot of the bride to show but the one below gives you an idea – she looked absolutely stunning, trust me. I really like this shot for some reason, probably because it implies at our close friendship
It was a really fabulous weekend I must say, though I have next to no pictures of my own to prove it – I was too busy having fun! Needless to say, I loved every minute, and while the past month has been incredibly busy and at times stressful, it has been one of the best experiences of my life. Yay for love!!
I promise now that things have wrapped up, I’ll be back to posting more regularly! I am headed to Ottawa this Thursday evening as the Ottawa Half Marathon is on Sunday (ran my last long run yesterday – 20k – and it went AWESOME so I’m feeling very good about the race!), so I’m going to try to get a good post or two up before I go. I have a handful of things I want to talk about, that I’ve been wanting to talk about for ages! So expect to hear all about them very soon!
Hope everyone is just peachy
