Stacia & Andrea’s Wedding: Part 1

After spending a lovely day with Susan enjoying New Hampshire, it was time for the main event of the trip: Stacia and Andrea’s wedding! Stacia and Dre made the long trek to southeastern Utah to celebrate Forrest and I so I was honored to not only be in Maine for their wedding but to be there as a bridesmaid.

When I arrived at the hotel, no one was there and I had a few minutes to myself. When everyone returned, I was welcomed exactly as I would expect from Stacia’s family: they immediately demanded that I get myself a drink…and were delighted to find that I had already helped myself. The evening was spent catching up, enjoying burgers and hot dogs, and wound up with the hot tub. The GoPro came but was not ideal for low light conditions. Stacia and I did attempt a selfie which is adorable no matter how blurry:

The next morning it was wedding go-time: loading up cars, carting stuff to the gondola, and getting everything neat and pretty for the wedding. I was a couple thousand miles away for picking out bridesmaid dresses, pre-wedding crafts, bachelorettes, and so on so I tried my best to make up for it during set-up! Seriously, I just didn’t stop moving PLUS captured photos on the GoPro all day:

Stacia and Dre put so much thought into making the North Peak Lodge at Sunday River look amazing. I was so happy to be part of the great crew of their family and friends there Friday putting it all in place!

After the Lodge was all in order for the big day, it was time for the bridal party to get their act together during rehearsal:

And then we all got treated to a delicious dinner before another evening of hot tubbing and good ol’ fashioned fun.

I had hoped to make the wedding and assorted events one post but I got carried away with photos! More tomorrow!!
