My beautiful and dear friend Colleen got married this past weekend. Her fiance, Cameron, is great and I think every single person in all these pictures has been looking forward to this wedding for months (maybe years!) because we all knew it would be so much fun and it definitely lived up to expectations. Please excuse the fact that I stole all my pictures from Instagram since I didn’t manage to take any myself.
Friday, those of us who were in town went to go get our nails done in time for the rehearsal dinner. The dinner was at the Columbia Club and I loved my whole meal except for the cake — weird right? Colleen looked beautiful and was glowing with excitement. I’m a big crier and I was already crying at the rehearsal.
Saturday we started early with hair and makeup at Colleen’s house. My sister did the same thing as Colleen which was having all the bridesmaids get ready at her house. It’s so much fun to spend the morning together and watch as everyone’s outfits came together. Eventually we were picked up and headed to the church. This is where Colleen put on her dress and I cried (again) seeing her all dressed in white. She looked SO SO beautiful! I didn’t get a picture of her in her dress but you can see the lovely beading (and her perfect smile) in the picture above.
After the ceremony we took a few pictures around Indianapolis and then headed to the reception at the Scottish Rite Cathedral. I’d never been in this place before and it is truly an amazing venue. Colleen and Cameron had everyone stay upstairs where the cocktail hour was and look down upon the wedding introductions and the first dance.
The rest of the night was spent dancing amongst friends. My feet hurt so much on Sunday but it was worth it. While I’m sad that the wedding is over I’m so happy to have been a part of Colleen and Cameron’s special day. I don’t think one person has a doubt in their mind that they are perfect for each other and will make each other so happy.
