The day started early. There were bagels and donuts.
The bride’s only request before heading out the door was a chocolate glazed. And those are Melissa’s favorite too, so please save her one.
We hopped in the car a short while later, just the four of us… me and the three sisters. Stories were told about their time around the dinner table… their ‘seats’ and the memories that were created over another meal that is today, less about the food that was eaten, and more about the conversation and topics that went along with it. (One involved a box of nerds that ended up flying out of Karen’s mouth, “rapid fire”).
We arrived to the salon and they watched each other getting ready. The bride first, the other two looking on… offering their advice, jokes and most important of all, dance moves.
The rest of the girls arrived. Her chosen sisters. And one very soon-to-be sister-in-law. Mimosas were served and more stories were told. It was, in my opinion, the perfect wedding day morning. So laid back, fun and full… of love, happiness and everything your last few hours before becoming a Mrs. should be.
To the Reed sisters: aside from seeing Karen and Sean heading back down the aisle as husband and wife, my favorite part of the day was the time I spent with the three of you. Thank you for making me feel like one of the fam, and mostly for being so sweet and welcoming throughout the weekend. I hope our paths cross again soon! xo.
