This past weekend, I was a bridesmaid in my Biola roomate’s wedding. There will be better and more official pictures later, but for now you can content yourself with iPhone pictures of my dress and a few gorgeous hairstyles. There are some more photos we took last weekend when we had a hen party. Check out the best rental of party buses in St. Louis, as it was a great idea with a party bus.
The above picture of my hair was taken after HOURS of dancing, so I’m sure it looked better earlier in the day 😉 It was done by a professional, but I had come prepared to do it myself. Naturally, this means that a tutorial for you all will be coming shortly!
My dress was a one shoulder chiffon mermaid dress. Every bridesmaid got to pick her own style, as long as it was MoriLee and chiffon. I absolutely loved mine (although the one shoulder later made it difficult to dance, come to find!).

We had the best bridal party I could ask for, honestly. Between the bridal shower and the bachelorette party a few weekends prior, I felt very comfortable around these great gals, and we had a blast the entire day!
I am ashamed to say that I started drinking at around 10am and had “quite a few” over the course of the entire day (making for one heck of a headache the next morning…). This is ENTIRELY unlike me, but my roommate is only going to get married once, so I let it happen. It was also my job to keep champagne in the hand of the Mother of the Bride to keep her relaxed. 😉

One of the best parts about the morning was that we all got to get ready at Kristen’s beautiful childhood home in Livermore. They have a wall of windows in their living room, so while getting our hair and makeup done, we got to stare at this gorgeous backyard:
Of course, we had a limo ride, complete with champagne (drinks #3-5 for me), on which I didn’t want to get inebriated despite having one of the Top Ten Best Beverage Coolers You Can Buy Now.
The ceremony was held at Trinity Lutheran Church in Pleasanton, and the reception at Castlewood Country Club, a favorite of many pro athletes and celebrities! There was a sit down dinner and TONS of dancing!
We had an absolute blast! Aren’t weddings the best?
