Bachlorette Party

The sisters & Gloria planned an AWESOME bachlorette party. It was a "Farewell Tour" for Me. Jake designed the t-shirts that everyone wore. We hit many of my favorite (or meaningful) Minneapolis spots like my parent's house, where I was falsely arrested, Oakwood, Cafe Latte, the Metrodome, Dunn Brothers Coffee, FBC, etc. . . The embarrassing part was that I had to sing a song
(already selected) at EVERY stop!

Jocelyn & her Mom flew in from PA
Flaming Sisters

Thanks for a GREAT & memorable night. Love you all!

Rehearsal Dinner

We had a yummy rehearsal dinner in the church fellowship hall following the rehearsal. Bekah's friend, Sue, catered most of it. We had hot turkey sandwiches, pasta salad, carrots & lots of yummy pie. It was delicious & a fun night.

Mom Flaming pouring the lemonade. Thanks, Mom!


The rehearsal went SO well & the best part was that we started at 5pm and were heading down to the Rehearsal Dinner by 6:10pm. Way to go Uncle Jeff!

Friday morning my Mom hosted a Bridal Brunch. We ended up inviting the groomsmen, who were in town, & Dad's & Uncle's. It was a GREAT morning. I loved spending time with all our friends & family who were in town.

Stage set-up. We got it all done on Wednesday night in only an hour or so. Then we all went to Mom & Dad's for ice cream. :)

Wednesday Morning

Wednesday morning we went into church to get a few things ready. Notice the PILES of wedding stuff behind me. We sorted & got ready for decorating later that night.
