FROM THE BRIDE: In the middle of August, we got a partly cloudy, 75 degree day. It was a miracle, and the rest of the day was just as perfect. All day, Brandon and I avoided each other so that our first look was when I was at the end of the aisle. When he turned around his were the only eyes I could see and his smile created my favorite memory by far. I approached him while our musicians sang “Be Thou My Vision,” a song so close to our hearts. It was magical – there is no other word to describe that moment. Our friends and family gathered at the fully-bloomed Fort Kearney State Recreation Area for our ceremony and came to celebrate with dinner and dancing at the Minden Opera House. We were amazed with how many people came to show their love and support!

My wonderful friends planned an amazing bachelorette weekend in Chicago a couple weeks ago! Our weekend was full of shopping, dining, boating and many laughs. It was perfect timing to take a couple days off from planning the wedding and enjoy what this event was really all about – fun, friends and family! There is nothing better than having all your best friends together, so here are a few pictures from our weekend!
