Next up: the day before the big day! I started the day off by getting manis with my bridesmaids, and then we had brunch with my mom and MIL. My bridesmaid Anna came over with her family ahead of time, and her parents gave us our wonderful wedding gift - they had our wedding invite framed in an absolutely gorgeous frame job.
No photos of manis (no free hands!) ... but here are my girls posing with the card I gave them at brunch.
Later, before the rehearsal...killing time in the library of the hotel. I loved that room and couldn't wait to get wedding photos taken in there...but then I totally forgot the next day. :)
Milling around before the rehearsal started...wish I knew what my dad was pointing at!
Talking over the ceremony with our officiant, John
Lisa enjoying the sweet, sweet smell of her ribbon bouquet
Thankfully, my dad didn't look quite this scary when he pushed back my veil the next day!
My parents...the first of many tears that occurred that weekend
Well, that was easy...rehearsal over!
Still not sure what's happening in this photo...but it is funny!
My girls and me, apparently in height order.

After the rehearsal dinner, my bridesmaids and I met up with my college friends who were in town for the wedding.
