a northern chicago wedding

Brett was the Best Man at the wedding of a college friend a few weekends ago.


I basically knew some of the male members of the bridal party at this event and one other person…


…who I elected as my date for most of the day of the wedding 🙂

In all seriousness though, the wedding was wonderful and it was such a great opportunity for me to get to know some of Brett’s close friends from his college days.  Brett, being the best man, was quite busy on Friday evening and most of Saturday so I was able to watch the beautiful event as a ‘fully supportive and ready to meet new people’ guest.  🙂





The way the couple added such wonderful, fall accents to the wedding was really outstanding.  Brett and I were so focused on our summer wedding that I never even considered darker browns and oranges to our decorating.  This fall themed event was really spectacularly put on 🙂



For the more wedding ceremony interested folks out there, each bridesmaid wore the same dress but in a different color.  Plus, the groomsmen each wore a boutonniere that matched their bridesmaid’s dress color.  So cute right?!  🙂  Brett gave such a great speech as the best man…people kept complimenting him about it later on in the evening and I think it took Brett a while to realize they were being serious and not teasing him 🙂  (Brett was a little nervous before hand)  🙂  Brett only did the ‘Data doing a comedy routine’ arms a little bit while giving the speech (any Star Trek fans out there know what I’m talking about?)  🙂

On each table was a small bag of caramel corn with a cute label stating the Bride and Groom’s names and the wedding date.  At the end of the night these bags were left everywhere….so I helped out in the cleaning a bit and made sure they didn’t go to waste  🙂


We ate a bag on the way home 🙂  Such a fun weekend with such fun people.  I am so glad that we were a part of it!  🙂  Congratulations to Steve and Laurie!
