In all my updating last post, I stupidly forgot to inform everyone about the wonderful wedding of Angela Sawyer and Brian Kopy. So here it goes...
I got up to the Scott Chapel Friday afternoon to help decorate with Lauren, Amy, and Crislyn. Angela did some really cute things. She hung black ribbon around the aisles with white flowers pinned on them. Very classy. She had a gazebo type thing (I don't know the proper word so I'm sorry) wrapped in white lights. It was beautiful. Friday night after rehearsal we all went to the hotel for the dinner catered by Carraba's. Yum yum yum. The dessert was one of the most amazing things I have ever tasted. I could have eaten the whole tray, but I resisted. Saturday morning my mom and I hosted a bridal brunch at our house. We had a very eclectic assortment of food. Bagels, quiche, fruit, cup cakes, chex mix, mini chicken biscuits from Chick-fil-A, and mini cheeseburgers from Cheeseburgers in Paradise for Angela's own "mini OU tailgate". We watched the OU game and just hung out and ate. We were all stuffed.
After stuffing ourselves we all went to get ready. Amy did my hair, bless her heart, but fortunately it didn't take as long as usual. She's amazing. Angela's hair looked fantastic. She had gorgeous big curls. She has perfect hair for stuff like that. It holds so well. We had a mini dance party while we were getting ready and waiting for pictures. It was some good ole fashioned girl time. Anyway, we had our "photo shoot" outside. The pictures turned out great. We were told to "vogue" which I was not very good at, but it was still fun. Angela and Brian saw each other before the wedding (which I recommend to everyone if you are OK with it...it gets out the jitters!) They took their pictures together. They looked so happy. It made me smile.
The ceremony was beautiful. They picked really pretty music. The flowers were gorgeous. Brian had a great big smile when she came down the aisle. YAY! I had to hold her massive bouquet which turned out to be a little bit of a workout! Angela's dress was gorgeous. It was full lace and had a semi long train. Beautiful! After the ceremony we headed over to the reception. Since most of the pictures were done before the wedding, they were over there pretty quickly and cut the cake. Yum! Brian had a big Nebraska cake, but Angela was sneaky and put in a small OU cake next to it. I love chocolate cake, so those were my favorite. She had a really cute candy buffet with little bags to take your candy home in. I ate all of mine there...shocking. There was shrimp, chicken, fruit, cheese...pretty much everything I like. When it was time to go we all showered them with bubbles. It was really pretty. It was so great to be a part of her wedding. I've never seen her so happy and that made me happy. It was a long time coming. :)
PS. Amy did not put in proper effort when it came to the bouquet toss. That was the only disappointment of the evening. Shame on her!
