My bridesmaids, moms and I headed to the salon for hair and make-up around 9am and were there for most of the morning, laughing, talking with other curious patrons about the wedding, showing off to the cutest little girl, "yep, she's the bride!" and of course, sipping on lots and lots of Starbucks! I don't have any pictures from that time but don't feel like I'm really missing anything by not having them. Around noon we headed to the venue, with a quick stop at the hotel on the way to check in, and enjoyed lunch/snacks that my mom brought for us. The guys all went out to a nice lunch, stopped by the salon after we left for a quick touch up of a bachelor party mishap on J's face (I was not pleased!) and arrived at the venue shortly after we did.
The rest of the morning seemed to fly by. The girls were busy touching up make-up, putting on dresses and tights and running around the venue before the boys arrived. The boys kept up on their football scores, had a few beers and relaxed before everything was underway. Then it was time to finally get the last touches of attire completed and head to take pictures!
