My gorgeous sister, Whitney, got married in Ohio last month! It was one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever been to, although maybe the coldest! I spent a week there with my family, getting ready and doing all the celebrating things. It was so nice to spend so much time together. Here is a breakdown of her Ohio winter wedding!
We started the week off with a sisters night out. It’s been forever since the 4 of us have just had time by ourselves and we throughly enjoyed dinner and drinks, followed by a pajama movie night!
There was plenty of cousin time, since I brought Lincoln with me. The big boys came in with The Hubs just for the wedding so they could be in school during the week.
The day before the wedding, we went to the cutest make your own bouquet place. It was so cool! They gave us all the flowers, along with instructions on how many of each item go in each bouquet. We did everything from cleaning to trimming, grouping and wrapping. After that girliness, we went for some more with manis and pedis.
The rehearsal was that night and that was also the time I realized the ceremony was outside! Luckily, it was short and we didn’t absolutely freeze to death.
The morning of the wedding was straight magic. We were all together with my mom and niece, getting hair and makeup done. Oh and eating Chick-fil-a!
I LOVED our bridesmaids dresses from Kleinfeld Bridal Party! They were simple, elegant and able to wear again in the future.
The boys were all in the wedding and I was thrilled when my sister told me they could wear sneakers instead of dress shoes! We got all of their Converse high tops at Rack Room Shoes and they looked adorable!
I wish we had this photo before we ordered our Christmas cards! What a miracle that everyone was looking and smiling!
At the reception, my sister had a whole table filled with coloring books, glow sticks and a special kid meal. It made it so nice for those of us with little ones. The candy and donut bar also made the kids very happy!
Since we got married 14 years ago, I totally lived vicariously through this wedding. Maybe it’s time for us to renew our vows so we can plan a wedding again!
