When Friends Get Married

There's nothing better than sharing special life moments with your friends! Matt and I ventured up to Michigan last weekend to watch our great friends Ben & Megan get married. And we were given the high honor of being Host & Hostess - pretty awesome!!

As Host and Hostess we were entrusted with the HUGE responsibility of prepping the reception hall and making sure things went smoothly with the caterer, facility, florist and cake lady. We jazzed up the dance floor with gorgeous hanging paper lanterns, set the tables with the numbers, made sure the florist put the right centerpieces on the right table, set up the candles, name cards and wedding favors. It was all a piece of cake though with Megan's amazing attention to detail!

The details were just stunning! Peonies, roses, hydrangeas and orchid centerpieces, hanging lanterns, black, pink and green accents, twin boys and girls for the flower girls and ring bearers, gorgeous brides maids, handsome groomsmen, pink strawberry wedding cake with coconut frosting, monogrammed frosted sugar cookie guest favors - everything just gorgeous!

(The happy newly weds - Ben & Megan! Aren't they the cutest couple!)

I cannot say enough to explain how amazing it was to be a part of their special day - it really made us feel like an important part of it all. We are so blessed to have such thoughtful friends who would entrust with the all the little details of their special day. *happy sigh*

Here's a snapshot of us with our Michigan couple friends! So wish they didn't live so far away! :( We always have such a blast together! Love and miss you all!

I liked the part where Quentin and I 'man' danced to Pour Some Sugar on Me by Def Leppard. To bad u didn't get pictures for that moment.

Sounds like an awesome time and looks like an adorable wedding and couple! I just LOVE that first pic of Matt with your friends dancing behind him. You've got mad skills!

Awww! They are cute and everything looks so nicely done. If this was all from her very own vision it makes it that much more special. Love personal touches. You all look like you had a great time.
