A Wedding in the Desert: Brooke + Casey

This past Friday night I jumped on an airplane and flew down to Arizona for a wedding!
My freshman roomie Brooke (I threw her a bachelorette party a couple months ago! Remember?) married her sweetheart Casey in the Gilbert Arizona Temple. 
They were adorable and it was the best day!
She looked beautiful, her dress was seriously stunning (these pictures don't do it justice! The details were amaze.), and even though it was 100+ degrees all day, the reception was in an orange patch where it was nice and cool. 
JP didn't join me on this trip (I guess future lawyers have to show up to their externships and stuff ;) 
but I got to meet and spend the weekend with some pretty awesome ladies and fellow bridesmaids which made up for his absence (a little bit)
Although I really started missing him when the dancing started towards the end of the reception! He's the most fun to have at weddings!

All in all it was a fabulous weekend; full of new friends, a happy bride, and really really warm weather haha. 

And now, a whole lot of pics:

^^^ me and the newly-married bride!

^^^ They had these awesome communal tables all along the orange trees!

 ^^^ The bridesmaid bouquet, modeled by Mckelle. 

^^^ my bridesmaid outfit!

^^^ I LOVED their invites! They were custom designed and so cute!

^^^ Nedge was writing the welcome sign, something I am never asked to do, probably because of my pretty atrocious handwriting haha. 

^^^ The newlyweds and allllll the nieces and nephews haha. 

^^^ Some of the cakes! Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of their actual wedding cake ha #bloggingfail

^^^ me and mckelle! she is a gem. over the weekend we came to the conclusion that we're pretty much the same person. 

^^^ such a rad group of ladies. I had the best time with them!

^^^ bff's for five years and counting.


  1. she was the prettiest bride!!

    so sad i didn't go down.

    looks like it was perfect!

  2. The food here is ridiculously good. Our guests couldn't stop talking about it! (Crab cakes, sliders, braised beef that melts in your mouth, what more can I say?)
