Brian & Jessica's wedding week

Time is moving right along...at record speed might I add, and I still haven't posted about the week of Brian and Jessica's wedding. I had imagined I would do a separate post for each the bridesmaid luncheon, rehearsal dinner and wedding. But now that it's already almost been an entire month; I think it might be best to put them all together. Otherwise, it might not get done at all, and that would just be sad.

The weekend started off with a beautiful bridesmaid luncheon at Cafe 615. I'll let the pictures do the talking.



Funny that I have another post with a picture of dessert and not my actual entree. I chose pizza for lunch and it was very tasty.

Amazing chocolate gateaux! I was very happy with my choice of dessert; I always tend to choose chocolate. But, everyone that ordered the creme brulee, said it was the best they had ever tasted.

An add a pearl necklace as a bridesmaid gift. So pretty and so thoughtful. Jess also gave us each a monogrammed bag with goodies to use on the day of the wedding. Forgot to get a picture of that, but it is super cute too.

Sisters and best friends.

Later that night we had rehearsal and the rehearsal dinner at Felix's Fish Camp.

Soon to be Mr. and Mrs.

Favors and seating arrangement



Grooms cake

Gold letters on the petit fours!



I love this scripture verse my mom chose for the theme. So fitting for a husband and wife and for my brother, since he's in the metal business.




Malted milk balls for the favor...my brothers favorite!

Poor mr. crab, from Kim's big bateau platter. I think this was a popular choice for dinner. I ordered the fresh catch almondine and chose grouper. It was so good! I don't think I will ever order anything different from the menu.

Gracie joined us for dinner while Ella Claire stayed home with a babysitter.

I could kick myself for not taking more pictures any pictures at the wedding!! It was beautiful! There were pretty things everywhere. In my defense, I was a bridesmaid, Jeremy was best man, EC was a flower girl and Gracie was 2, almost 3 weeks old! We were a little busy.

Here are a few I took before the wedding.




Jess was a beautiful bride! She was literally glowing.

And that's it! I wish I had pictures from the ceremony and reception. But after the wedding, I was too busy feeding a hungry infant and chasing a crazy 2 year old. So sad all the Cooper/Dean wedding fun is over! However, the Dean/Manley wedding fun is just beginning!
