I think I’m finally, finally recovered from the wedding on the weekend. Travelling is too much work! Or at least driving is. What a ball of stress that is.
Anyway! I figured I’d share a few photos from my travels up “north”. And I put north in quotes because someone did mention to my that Prince George isn’t exactly Northern BC. Which is true. It’s actually smack-dab in the middle of the province. Proof:
Anyway, this isn’t a post about Canadian geography! It’s about the WEDDING! Sheesh.
I left for PG around 8:30 Thursday morning after feeding Kyle breakfast (he had just got off night shift!). The drive was actually really nice – minimal traffic, good weather, no moose-dodging. Sorry – no photos, because I was on a deadline to get to the rehearsal at the church by 2 p.m. Did I do it? Well, I could’ve if it wasn’t for stupid road construction. Not even fair. It made me late by about 10 minutes. Anyway, I got to the church and joined in on the rehearsal, which consisted of walking up and down the aisle a couple times and going through the readings.
After the rehearsal was the rehearsal dinner which was held at the groom’s aunt and uncle’s house. It was AMAZING! Steak, potatoes, garden-grown veggies, yummy appies – heaven, especially since all I had to eat was a strip of bacon, a few bites of hashbrowns and some dill pickle chips.
From there we went and got ready for the Bachelorette party, which ended up being a Jack & Jill-style party since only one bar was open in the entire city. Ah well! It was a lot of fun and we got the bride good and pickled.
Friday was kind of a free day, although we did head to a day-spa and had our nails done. I had my first manicure ever and I’m not so sure I liked it. Regardless, here’s a photo of my pretty nails:
I did like how the girl got my nails to be all the same shape. Normally they’re all oddly shaped and fugly. So yay for that!
Also on Friday I FINALLY met an online friend for the first time. Yay for creating IRL friends! It was great to meet her and it was like we’ve been friends for ages. I hope to see her again soon!
Saturday was the big day and we were up early to have our hair done. My hair was a little, umm, big? I didn’t want huge poufy hair, but that’s kind of what I got. And really, it was worse than in the photo but I got the stylist to bring it down a notch. The backcombing was ridiculous.
But – the bride thought it looked great and that’s all that mattered! (Oh, and those bridesmaids dresses we had to wear kind of looked okay while we all together!) (Also – Sorry for that link being password protected – leave a message for the password!)
The wedding went off without a hitch and the reception was amazing! Delicious food, dancing and touching speeches filled the night. And – the MOH and I snuck off to the newly wedded couple’s hotel room and decorated it a little bit. Bwahaha!
So, here’s a some photos for you guys. Enjoy, and Happy Wednesday!
