A wedding weekend

This past weekend one of my dearest friends got married!
After spending a couple of days with my cousins in Kansas City I headed to Springfield.  
It was a wonderful weekend full of wedding festivities:
 Going to Kai for sushi was a MUST.
 Bridal shower time.
 Those cupcakes were delicious.  
 Amy & Dan, the perfect blend.

 Bff Ashley at the rehearsal dinner.
 Day of the wedding!  First stop: Hebrews (favorite coffee shop ever) for some coffee and breakfast!
 At the church, the "getting ready" rooms were great!  

 Hair and makeup

 Haha not sure why they put this in the bridal room.

 Gorgeous bride!
 Waiting for the bride!
 Here she comes, isn't she beautiful?!?!
 First kiss
 The happy couple!
 Reception time
She caught the bouquet! 
 Saw Miss Amelia at the wedding!

I then spent the next couple of days with Ashley in Branson.

On my way home.  Don't worry, I was stopped in traffic when I took the picture.

A little last minute Christmas shopping with the little brother.  
Isn't this the best!?!?

Family Christmas party.

 It was cozy and wonderful.

My trip was wonderful and I loved seeing friends.  They are my kindred friends and even though I may not see them that often, I treasure the time we have together.  I'm so happy for Amy and Dan, I know that they will have a beautiful journey together.  

I'm looking forward to this Christmas weekend to celebrate and reflect on Christ our Savior.
