Wedding Weekend!

We were so fortunate to celebrate Kelly & Nick’s marriage this past weekend! It was definitely another successful Whittaker wedding…

The celebrations kicked off with a bridesmaids luncheon on Friday at Myers Park Country Club. The setting was beautiful, and the food was delicious… Each person in the wedding party even had their own personalized cake for dessert!

On Friday afternoon, we had the rehearsal at the church, followed by a rehearsal dinner at The Ivey. For some reason, rehearsal dinners are always my favorite part of wedding weekends… This one was a great chance to meet some of Nick’s family! If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Nick’s sister Mandy’s blog, Kuzak's Closet, a daily read for me and now featuring her amazing pictures (so much better than the ones in this post) of the wedding!

We were also able to catch up with Jeff’s family, in from New Orleans, which is always so much fun (and we wish happened more often!) To finish off the night, there was an amazing slide show and lots of great toasts.

Saturday was the Big Day! Of course, Kelly looked absolutely beautiful! Not to mention how the bride & groom both just radiated with happiness… I feel so blessed that they included me in such a special day.

The reception was on the beautiful campus of Queens University… I can’t wait to see (and share) all the pictures from the photographer. I know there will be so many great shots of the gorgeous bride!

Needless to say, everyone had a great time at the reception! I’m convinced that you can’t have a Whittaker wedding that isn’t fun. The band kept the party going, and there was a lot of dancing…

And a lot of celebrating…

So much love & congratulations to the newly wedded Mr. & Mrs. Chappel!
