Wedding Weekend Recap!

Happy Monday, buddies!

I'm coming off of a long, but extremely fun weekend complete with a wonderful wedding, awesome weather, and tons of fun with friends!
MG and I went to the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner for our couple friends who were getting married--we had some mingling time and then enjoyed a phenomenal dinner at Sequoia in Georgetown with hilarious and heart-warming stories about the couple.



The next day was the wedding fun. MG's friend was staying with us, so the three of us woke up and spent the morning on the couch preparing for that afternoon/evening's festivities. 

In the afternoon, we made our way into DC for the wedding--the church was beautiful, the bride was gorgeous and the ceremony was lovely.

The main church was so beautiful, I made MG stop to take a picture with me :)

After the wedding we drove back to our other friends' place which was right next to where the reception was and had a few drinks. Sadly, it started to downpour despite a forecast for clear skies. Luckily we caught a break in the clouds and were able to make our way to the reception relatively dry (thanks to MG driving and dropping us off and then walking over himself--good guy!)

The sun was starting to set, and the sky after the storm was incredibly beautiful. We even saw two huge rainbows--that's gotta be really good luck for a wedding day!

We took advantage of the crazy view and took some pictures:
The view from inside

And from the terrance--(My new favorite picture of us)

And, right after we took this picture, the clouds opened up again. Sad face.

Luckily the drinks were flowing inside and the dancing started right after the couple and the wedding party arrived.

The fact that I have no pictures of the rest of the night is a testament to how much fun we had.

The reception moved from Top of the Town to a nearby hotel where we did not last very long. Soon a group of us were calling a cab to head back to MG and my place to hang out. Someone ordered pizza, cheezy bread and cinnastix before we even got a cab, and as we were pulling into our complex, we caught the Dominos guy as he was leaving, luckily. Six of us proceeded to "mow down" on some food like we had never eaten before and might never eat again.

This was what MG and I woke up to the next morning:

Needless to say, the entire night was a success. The next day we stopped by an "after party" in the afternoon to see and congratulate the couple again. They are a great couple and I wish them nothing but happiness for the future! :)

Hope you had a great weekend filled with fun, and a good start to the week!
