It was a beautiful night last night in the park for a wedding rehearsal!
I left work a little early today to get home and change before heading to the park where Katie & Jesse’s wedding will be taking place tomorrow evening. I had never really been down to the garden where the ceremony will take place. It was gorgeous!
It’s completely covered by the tall trees making it feel very cool and cozy even though we’re in the middle of a large, public park. My favorite part is the little waterfall that we’ll be standing on top of tomorrow.
There were lots of people around taking pictures before a high school prom of some sort. But they quickly cleared out for our rehearsal.
The groom’s grandpa will be officiating the ceremony tomorrow.
He’s the cutest old guy! Katie had a nice little agenda made out for him so he could keep everything in line. With a little extra help from Katie of course. 🙂
We practiced walking into position and back out down this cute little path. It’s the perfect little setting for a wedding!
And this is a my view from the top of the waterfall area.
Only tomorrow it’ll be filled with lots more family members and guests out there!
And no wedding would be complete without 2 tiny flower girls. 🙂 They are nieces of the groom and are cute as a button! One of them also provided my favorite pic of the evening..
Oh little girls that lift their dresses. They always make me laugh!
We all mozied around and ran threw the ceremony twice before heading off to dinner.
Katie found a great little venue/catering company to host our evening meal at The Event Center here in Springfield. We arrived a little early, but the food was ready quickly. I was ready to eat!
I had snacked on some almond butter (surprise, surprise) before I headed to the park early, so I tried to fill up on veggies as much as possible. I filled my plate with the mixed spinach salad and green beans before finishing it off with the amazing pulled pork and BBQ sauce. Yum! The meat was my favorite part even though it felt good to get some veggies in my tummy.
Nick was the most excited about the potatoes and the dinner rolls.
I never even keep potatoes in the house, so he was loving these buttery spuds! I chose to forgo the carbs as I tend to bloat up super easy, and I have a pretty dress to squeeze into later today!
Well I’m off to go get my hair done before meeting the gals at the park to finish getting ready. I’ll see you after the wedding!
