Sure could get used to this view from their neighborhood.
Their adorable newly painted house
We had a short 2.5 hour drive up to San Rafael (just north of San Francisco), checked into our hotel and said hi to everyone.
I did a lot of reading on this trip when Pete was driving. I switched between wedding planning library books and Glamour magazines.
Bottom line: I have no idea how people do weddings on a limited "budget." Wish me luck.
Comfy travel outfit!
Soon enough it was time for the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner.
The church they got married at was St. Vincent School for Boys. It was beautiful inside and out.
My dress for the rehearsal was a recent Tar-get find.
After the rehearsal, we headed to Rickey's for rehearsal dinner. We had a great buffet of grilled salmon, roasted chicken, asparagus, green salad, deeeelicious cornbread and fingerling potatoes.
Dad & mom
All the bridesmaids together now with Sabrina (in black). Some of us were Sabrina's relatives (or soon to be) or high school/college friends.
My youngest brother Max and the manfriend
After dinner, I requested a little photo shoot with the happy couple. Seriously adorable.
Next up is the wedding! I had so many great photos that I figured splitting up the rehearsal and wedding would be best.
The manfriend and I took Monday off work and it was much needed after the 9 hour drive home and an exhaustively fun weekend. Happy Tuesday!
Anyone have a good recipe you're planning to make for the 4th of July? I'm hoping to make a cold pasta salad for a BBQ we're attending.
