Okay everyone! Here it is! The very first recap from our wedding. Well, kinda. This first recap is about two days before the wedding. But, it was an amazing day and I felt that it needed to be shared.

So the Thursday before the wedding, Lou and I headed to the Denver Airport to pick up our other bestie, Veronica. This was the only person that we had to pick up from the airport so this was kind of a big deal to me. To some of you it may not seem like a big deal, but since she flew all the way from Alaska to be a part of my wedding, it was a huge deal for me.


So we made our way to the airport. Upon pulling up to the arrivals part of the airport, we found this beautiful face waiting for us;

We could tell that she was exhausted from her flight, especially since she was almost three months prego at this time. So we scooped her up and were off to get a few things done before we left Denver. Our first stop was to pick up our wedding bands from the jeweler. So we stopped off at the mall to pick these up and decided to have lunch and do some shopping while we were there.

We had such a great time hanging out and catching up. It really felt like we were never apart. That is what I love about our friendship. No matter how long we have been apart, we can always pick up right where we left off.

After picking up the rings and doing some shopping, we headed to Aran's parents house to drop off a few last minute things that needed to be taken to the reception venue the next day. From there we tried to do some more shopping to try and find Lacey a pair of shoes to match her dress. Long story short on this one, we ended up finding them at Wal-Mart of all places, haha!

After this we finally headed back down to where Lou and I live. Which is like an hour drive from Denver. I still hadn't found a garter at this point so we decided to try and go to one of the adult stores to see if they had any. Well, they didn't and we ended up spending like an hour in this store. Weird, yes, but it was mostly us walking around and making fun of everything that we saw. It was hilarious. I ended up finding a pretty generic garter at Hobby Lobby. At this point, I didn't care anymore what it looked like. No one was going to see it.

After these two little trips we headed back to pick up my soon to be hubby and Lou's already hubby so that we could go out to dinner. Our choice for food that night, was Buffalo Wild Wings. I found this really hilarious because a lot of people really watch what they eat before their wedding and I didn't care. I probably gained three lbs in those days before the wedding. Thank goodness for a corset, haha!


After dinner, the soon to be hubby and I headed back to our apartment and Lou and Veronica headed back to Lou's place. It had been a long day, but we were so excited to all be back in each other's company that we didn't care how long of a day that it had been.

Thinking back on this day makes me realize how lucky I am and how blessed I am to have the friends in my life that I do. The fact that I had a friend fly here all the way from Alaska just to be in my wedding is amazing. She didn't have to, but she wanted too! I am so thankful for her and all of my other friends who had to make a trip just to come to our wedding. It really shows you how much they care about you.

Thanks for stopping in today everyone. I will be back on Wednesday with another recap. Have a great day everyone!
