Marvelous Weekend for a Wedding

This weekend was beautiful. We had a snowstorm on Friday, followed by warmer than usual temperature. This marvelous weather was even fantastic because two of our good friends were married on Saturday.  I want to share some of the pictures I snapped because it was definitely the highlight of our weekend (ie: I hung out with my mom Friday night catching up on shows, and Sunday was spent lounging around and dinner at the in laws.. this is more exciting!). Chris and Bri are so in love, and these pictures captured it completely. I am so happy for both of them, and with them a lifetime of happiness!


Two of our other friends who just got engaged!


Beaming Bride


Exchanging rings


Don’t they just scream in love?

My family.


My groom. Winking smile


The entrance video they had before the bride and groom came in was a song sung at Pitt, so they were really into it!



Yep, throw it in his face Winking smile



With the bride and groom


A fast beat, polka type of dancing song came on, which had all the older generation up on the dance floor dancing. Aaron tried to get me up there to do it (he had no idea what it was!) but I wouldn’t go, so Brittany did. They were exhausted after it! Haha Such a fast and upbeat song!IMG_5756

What a way to end the night! We are so happy for you, Chris and Bri, and just wish you all the fun times to come.

Last wedding you went to?

Are you being hit with the cold spell or the snow storm (or are you lucky and in a warm area!)?

      My cousin lives in Texas and she’s never ready for the cold, either! I laugh when shes wearing boots and scarves and its 60 out.. now it’s really time to bust them out! lol

  5. It is warm in my area, but I’m dying for some cold!! Love that last picture of Aaron and Brittany, they definitely look like they are having fun! I would have done that same as you and not gone up haha I’m not a big dancer anyways.

      I love to dance, but add in 4 hours on my toe, it just wasn’t moving that fast! lol Lucky you are in the warmth!

  6. Pretty wedding! Last wedding I went to was in October and it was at a winery. It’s supposed to hit a low of 12 degrees tomorrow here in Southeastern VA, which I’m not at all prepared for! I’m used to winters that stay above 40 on avg. so I’m not cut out for cold weather!

      A winery wedding! How beautiful it must have been. I can’t believe how cold it is getting in all the places that are usually warm! haha 12 is pretty low- I think ours is going to -5 tomorrow with wind chills -40!!

  7. Aw this looks like fun! I can’t wait for my friends to start getting married so I can go to weddings. A family friend just got engaged but we haven’t decided if we’re going to the wedding yet. I haven’t been to one since I was like 8!

    • Fit N Cookies says:

      No way! Honestly this would be one of the first if we didn’t have such a large family! It’s always a blast having family weddings.

  8. What a beautiful wedding! The bride looks radiant. I went to a wedding back in early December. There’s just something about winter weddings that I find so beautiful!

      Haha I can imagine it’s pretty painful! I’m used to freezing temps in the winter, but nothing like we are getting.. -10! without the windchill! It dropped 49 degrees between midnight and 5 pm today lol

  13. I love the picture of the bride smashing cake in the groom’s face, and her shoes are super cute, too! Weddings are seriously the best.

  14. What a beautiful wedding! It’s always so fun to see couples that are really in love. What a beautiful dress she had!

  15. Love love love your dress! Perfect for a winter wedding!

  16. The bride looks SO happy! I just love weddings. BTW, your dress is super cute and looks great on you. Where did you get it? This may sound weird, but can you send a little snow to Oregon? We need it to avoid a dry and high risk fire season!

    • Fit N Cookies says:

      Thanks so much, Kristen! My dress is from Target a few years ago. I wish I could send some snow up there. What about the freezing temps? Would those help ward off the fire season? Ha.. my cousin lives in Portland and I went out there in March. I loved it!

  17. What a fun wedding. All you ladies & men look great! I love your dress – where’s it from?
