My Best Friend’s Wedding: Prep, Rehearsal & Dinner

My best friend Nichole got married on September 7, and it was a whirlwind weekend.  We took over 500 pictures, so I decided to break up the recap into two five posts.

First up were preparations on Friday.  Nichole wanted to do her own flowers, so we started with putting together the bouquets and centerpieces.  Nichole’s bouquet held white roses and brooches, while our bridesmaid bouquets and the centerpieces held a combination of white roses, ranunculus, lisianthus, and baby’s breath.  She ordered the roses and baby’s breath from Costco, and the ranunculus and lisianthus from Fifty Flowers.

Then hung out with her new best friend, Beamer.  Yes, Nichole’s dog is named after Virginia Tech’s football coach (who is currently the winningest and longest tenured active coach in Division I FBS…good person to be named after, duh).

Once the flowers were done, we checked into our hotel room, then got ready for the rehearsal and dinner.
