The Hours Before a Wedding

While many men golf, play paintball, smoke cigars and drink scotch before a wedding, the bonding ritual of women is infinitely more precious and special (IMHO). On Saturday before my friend's wedding, I got to hang out in the hotel room with the girls...we giggled, drank champagne, and watched the bride and her maids get beautified. It was so fun to be there and I just had to share these adorable pics!

Not so ready to give up her cousin, yet!

Lots of laughs with this group!

Her dress was AMAZING...a Carolina Herrera!

Big sister had no problem with her sweet cousin getting married. She got to be a flower girl, afterall!

One last smooch for Jen Jen before she became a wife.

Go visit Sweet Shot Tuesday to see some other beautiful shots from this week!!! I'm also sharing this with Angry Julie Monday's Wordless Wednesday...even though I included words. ; )

I've not spent a ton of time in "the boys' room" before weddings, but you're right... those get ready moments in "the girls' room" really are special.

Fun shots!

The quality in these is amazing - I'd love to know what equipment you use.

It was fun looking at these 'before' photos but it wasn't nice of you not to show us the bride in her dress!
