Friday we had the bridal party luncheon at Sprouter's Inn on the water front in Beaufort. Then me and the other bridesmaids went shopping to decide what necklaces to wear for the wedding. Turns out we had everything we needed in our own jewelry bags :)
We checked in to our hotel... it was gorgeous! We stayed at the Inlet Inn on the waterfront and the views were amazing.
We had rehearsal at 5 and then rehearsal dinner followed at Beaufort Grocery Co.
Dinner was delicious and the speeches in honor of Kristen and Ryan were that night. I was so glad to only give my maid of honor speech in front of about 30 people instead of 130 :) I still got a little teary eyed talking about my bestie.
After dinner there was a cocktail party in the garden behind Beaufort Grocery... it was an awesome night. Jonathan played while everyone enjoyed drinks and socialized. Gorgeous night!
Kristen was the least bridezilla bride I have ever met!! Saturday she didn't care what we did, we just needed to meet up at 4:00 to get ready! Amazing. So Trey and I headed back to his parents' house where my parents and some friends were. We all spent a few hours on the beach during the day. It was a super relaxing weekend.
I headed back to the hotel to get myself cleaned up before heading to get ready with all of the girls.
We had a private trolley to take us from the hotel down to the Boat House at Front Street Village. It was so cute and exciting. We hoped right off the trolley to walk down the isle. The weather was still amazing, warm but a slight breeze and the ceremony was perfect.
The photographer took some pictures that I can't wait to see and then we headed upstairs to join the party. There were food stations and a dance floor outside.

At the end of the wedding we were supposed to send them off with sparklers but they went missing, so the wedding planner thought quickly and took the bridesmaids' bouquets and used the petals... it was really pretty actually!
Then they hopped on the trolley with us to take us all back in to downtown Beaufort. The newlyweds even headed to the Dockhouse with us to celebrate with a few more drinks!
The weekend couldn't have gone any better!
