Haley and Dan Tie the Knot!

So, it has taken me way too long to finally sit down and blog again after all of the wedding festivities over the weekend! That's right, these two lovebirds (my sister Haley and now brother-in-law Dan) tied the knot Saturday, July 19, 2014:

After all of the planning and preparation, everything went perfectly, and everything was gorgeous, from the dresses to the flowers, to the decor.

The weather was also perfect. It was sunny but there was a light breeze. The wedding weekend was a busy one - we stayed in Moline at the hotel Friday and Saturday night. Friday we decorated the reception hall, later that night was the rehearsal at the church, then the rehearsal dinner at Cafe Fresh in Moline. Saturday was of course the wedding, and Sunday we cleaned up and watched Haley and Dan open their gifts.

The ceremony was short and sweet and just as rehearsed. I was pretty nervous to walk down that aisle but made it through without a hitch!

The reception was at the University Club and it was a great time. Everyone had a blast, and we all danced the night away. I really think the dance floor was full the entire time!

The toasts were all awesome. Jess and Krista (Haley's maids of honor and her best friends) both gave really sweet, teary-eyed speeches, and Dan's brother Corbin gave a both sweet and hilarious, thoughtful speech that included an actual speedo. It was pretty hands-down the best Best Man speech ever.

I felt extremely lucky to be a part of my sister's special day, and cannot wait for Trent and I's wedding next year. I definitely have a lot to live up to. Of course we're going the more untraditional route, a smaller, outdoor wedding. (fingers crossed for good weather). 

We're getting more and more into the planning process, and things are starting to roll. I hope it turns out just as perfect as Haley and Dan's did.
