Anybody who knows Genevieve knows that she's such a beautiful women both inside and out and it would seem that almost anything she touches turns into "gold". Her wedding was simply another spectacular day of creativity and eye candy almost everywhere you looked.
I'd love to share a few pictures from the weekend but I'll just have to say I really stole a lot of pictures from my husband and some people who posted pictures on Facebook. So thanks everyone for well....letting me steal a few shots.
Friday evening was spent at the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner and then finally all the bridesmaids gathered in the bride's grandparent's basements till the wee hours of the night putting together flower bouquets and arrangements for the reception tables. The basement smelt amazing and even though we were all exhausted it was enjoyable just being surrounded by so many beautiful flowers.

The rest of the day was spent just cleaning up, putting together last minute things and tearing up as we watched the bride get ready.

Gen's photographer, Shari Vallely, was a friend of her's who knew pretty much exactly what she was wanting for pictures so with those two very talented minds I'm sure the pictures are going to be pretty awesome. Check out Shari's website and blog by clicking HERE.
Alright moving on. They had a beautiful Jewish ceremony, which was filled with so much beautiful symbolism and words. Thankfully the wind has calmed down since the pervious day and for the most part everything went off perfectly.
Following the ceremony there was some tasty lemonade and cakepops to enjoy along with mingling and catching up with a few people I hadn't seen for awhile.
The wedding party then proceeded to the reception site (Genevieve's grandparent's backyard) where it was a mad dash to try and get things set up before the guest arrives. There was some moments of miss communications and having to redo a few things but in the end it was set up and beyond breathtaking.

|Well worth it!|
The evening was spent eating, talking, laughing, beautiful speaches and toasts.
Along with dancing on the dance floor (I just watched mind you. I'm really a terrible dancer).
And then dancing off the dance floor with a chair dance. So fun! But I felt scared for Gen! Eek!
(Sorry for the super long blog but this wedding so deserved it)
I love you Genevieve!
