Back to Back Weddings

If you would have asked me 5 years ago if I would have thought that June through November of 2014 would be filled with the weddings of my best friends, my sister, and myself, I would have laughed.  Even in college, I never thought that Janie, Mary Beth, and I would be getting married the same year!  I always thought it would be a given that Rachel and I would get married years apart since we're 4 years apart in age.  Who knew?!

Recently, I was the matron of honor in Janie's wedding and Rachel's wedding--two Saturday's in a row!!!!!  Ahh!

Janie's Wedding

Janie chose the perfect date to get married--October 25th (and also my 27th birthday).  Her wedding was beautiful!  It took place at a gorgeous house in Birmingham with an outdoor ceremony (perfect weather) and an outdoor/indoor reception.  It's evident how much she and Chris love each other, and I loved watching Chris watch Janie walk down the aisle.  He was beaming with joy!
I had to steal this photo from Janie's Facebook!  Look at how cute!!

The food was great and the band was so much fun!  Dustin and I loved dancing all night!  It was a great end to a fun birthday!


Fun tidbit:  When Dustin and I arrived home late Saturday night, my mom had decorated our entire apartment for my birthday!  This is something she's done every year of my life, and in college, Janie would decorate!  I loved coming home to balloons, streamers, and "Happy Birthday" signs everywhere!

Rachel's Wedding

Rachel got married the following Saturday after Janie.  Can we say exhausted?  I loved every minute of it, but I'm also happy to put all wedding events behind me!  Now on to babies......in a few years ;) 

Rachel was married at First United Methodist Church in Hartselle, and it was the same church that Dustin and I were married three months earlier.  It definitely doesn't feel like it's been that long!  That day, lots of people kept telling me that it felt like they were just there for our wedding a few days before.

The weather for Rachel's wedding was COLD!!!  The sun was shining but the wind was blowing, so I'm pretty sure it stayed around 40 degrees that day!  Pictures outside were brutal!  Rachel was an absolutely gorgeous bride and so calm!  It was so special to stand next to her after she had done the exact same for me just a few months earlier.


They are happy to finally be Mr. and Mrs. Nick Howard!
