Another Wedding Weekend

This time we went home to AR for a wedding. I blogged about going home for my friend's bachelorette party in April and now it was time for the wedding. I made sure I went down early enough in the week so that I could spend some time with my family and friends and still be able to help Whitney out.

Whitney is one of those really creative and crafty people which is probably why we had so much fun as kids. For her wedding she decided to decorate with paper flowers. I am already a fan of paper flowers and have used them to decorate parties in the past, however I did not know that Whitney was making over 300 paper flowers!
 Whitney and I have known each other since kindergarten so it was really special that I got to be a part of her big day :)
I just thought the picture below was too hilarious not to share. I don't even know how many people were back there trying to figure out how to bustle the dress!
We all had beautiful bouquets with peonies (my fave!) and the paper flowers were used as decorations.You can see some of the paper flowers in the background of the picture below behind the happy couple. Keep in mind this is June in Arkansas so if the groom doesn't look too happy its because it was 97 degrees and everyone was trying not to melt :)
The ceremony was outside at two in the afternoon which was just a smidge hot but the reception was inside and wonderfully air conditioned :) My family was at the wedding too which made for the perfect opportunity for a family photo, everyone is even smiling!
Such a fun trip home and a few much appreciated days off work! Now if I can just make it through July John and I are going to Alaska in August!


  1. LOVE your dress!! (: Happy fourth of July!!

  2. So sweet! Thanks for posting this and for making those trips down for the wedding. I just can't imagine what it would have been like without you. Also, I owe you some serious surprises. ;)- Whitney
