Wozney Wedding Weekend {April 2013}

Friday, April 5, 2013

This was Nicole & Al's wedding weekend. I took the day off and my Dad dropped me off at my Aunt & Uncle's house (parents of the bride) mid-day, so then Wayne & I wouldn't have two cars the next day at the wedding & reception. So I car-pooled with them to the rehearsal and dinner.

The ceremony was at Northwestern College in the Nazareth Chapel in St. Paul. Absolutely beautiful.

Dinner was at Grumpy's in Roseville. They did a build your own burger bar AND had an open bar! Woohoo!

We all got liquor for our gift! Go figure! All the ladies ended up spending the night at The Bride's parents house, but we pretty much all just went to bed. It was going to be an early morning and a long day.

7. On our way to the "first sighting." The photographer in me took over and became a little bossy at this point. I just wanted everything to go smoothly and wanted both Nic and Al to have a memorable first sighting with great pictures.

13. Me saying that I drank WAY too much is a huge understatement. It was damn good fun, but I definitely can't party like I used to.

14. So much fun! Arriving at the reception which was at the Park Plaza Hotel in Bloomington. Which coincidentally was where Wayne and I had our reception 6.5 years ago! Aw. What memories.

18. Hailey had so much fun dancing the night away. She was all over the place and probably on the dance floor more than anyone else. She loves weddings!
