{4.11.2015 - The Best Day Ever - Rehearsal Dinner }

I have a hard time believing that our wedding was almost 2 months ago!  It seems like just yesterday we were surrounded by our family and friends celebrating our love and commitment to each other!   The entire weekend was a dream come true, and one that I will remember forever!  So in order to preserve some of those wonderful memories I have decided to put together a few short posts documenting the entire celebration!  Hope you enjoy! 

So, let's start from the top with the rehearsal dinner which was really the kick off party for wedding weekend!  The day of the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner began with snow, and not just any snow... huge fluffy flakes!  Yes, snow in April!  Only in Minnesota can you have snow, rain and sunshine all in one week and really all in one day!  But the snow quickly stopped and the day turned into a beautiful sunny 60 degree day!

I got to enjoy a relaxing morning with my bridal party (my mom and mother in law too) getting pampered for the big day!  Mani's and Pedi's for all!  It was a great morning, I loved being able to chat with my girls and just relax before the big day!  I was giddy, excited and ready to go!

The excitement and energy carried me throughout the entire day!

I remember getting ready for the rehearsal and the dinner and feeling as if I were dreaming!  I had a hard time believing that after a year of planning our wedding day was actually here!  It wasn't until I walked into the church for the rehearsal that reality really set in!  I remember walking into the church to the sound of our pianist and vocalist practicing for the big day.  The site of our entire bridal party and family gathered combined with the the beautiful stain glass of the church and the music brought tears to my eyes!  Our wedding was really happening and I could feel the love and excitement in the church.  It was a wonderful feeling!

Nothing Earth shattering happened at the rehearsal!  We practiced, it went smoothly and then it was off to celebrate with a fabulous dinner!

We held our rehearsal dinner at a local restaurant in Uptown, Stella's Fish Cafe!  It was the perfect location for our our rehearsal dinner!  Rustic features (barn wood siding), fun lighting and fabulous food made for a great evening!

I remember sitting back and at one point during the rehearsal dinner just to take in the whole experience.  Family and friends were all excited, all smiling and all happy to be there to celebrate and support Derek and I on the eve of our next big chapter!  It was fabulous evening and a great way to kick off the weekend! Stay tuned for more wedding posts... coming soon!
