Rehearsal Dinner

I am so excited because I finally get to share photos from our rehearsal dinner and our wedding (in the next couple of days). My dear friend Megan shot the whole thing for us, and I really wouldn't have it any other way, she is one of the best photographers I know! And just so you know, she does travel for events! 
My sister in law Dev helping make the pies.
I got up really early the morning of the rehearsal dinner to get the pie crust all ready since it required at least two hours in the fridge. Then all of my lovely bride ladies showed up a couple hours later and we spent the morning baking the pies. Lots and lots of pies: eleven pies in total (eight apple, one apple crisp, one mix berry, and one blue berry). We had a small mishap with one of the apple pies as the sauce started to overflow in the pie pan and cause quite a bit of smoke hehe. Thankfully it was a pretty nice day so we just opened some windows to let the smoke out. 
My amazing bride ladies who I couldn't have done any of this without! Seriously, these ladies were beyond phenomenal and I know I'll never be able to thank them enough! Alesha, Hannah, Lex, and Shaye may your names go down in the history books as the best friends this lady could ask for! 
Please excuse my hair, this is what happens where there is still no running water at the house and you have spent the last 36 hours frantically building picnic tables and decorating haha! 
My totally amazing brother! 
We did a waffle dinner for the rehearsal, I figured who doesn't love some tasty waffles! My aunt Jenny and my mom's dear friend Chris really helped make it happen by spending a couple of hours in the kitchen making sure everyone got their fill for food. And I must say the waffles came out amazingly! I probably could have eaten my weight in them, if that were a socially expectable thing to do haha! 
Then we shared the video Will made of what we had been doing with the house over the last three years. I love watching that video still, because when you are working on something so monumental you kind of forget just how much work went into doing the whole thing!  

The day seemed to go by with a blink of an eye, it was both stressful and amazingly fun. And I know everyone always says this, but we seriously have the best family and friends ever! Looking back at all of these photos really makes me wish we had everyone back on the mountain hanging out with us all over again. 

Hope everyone is having a nice Monday.
