Slight Drum Roll, Please

Good News: My camera has finally arrived!

Not So Good News: I only took a few pictures of Rehearsal.......

Better News: Katharine posted pictures of the important part of the weekend...the wedding!

The Rehearsal Dinner was at Boston's famous Durgin Park Restaurant. Katharine gave the bridesmaids beautiful pearl earrings and bracelets which she helped design.  Kyle gave the groomsmen authentic 2010 dime cufflinks commemorating fellow Harvard alum Franklin D. Roosevelt as well as the year of their wedding.

Kyle even made it out that night to celebrate with friends before taking his long awaited trip down the aisle!

Saturday morning Jessica and I went shopping and enjoyed the beautiful weather.  I never realized what an awesome city Boston is! We then met in the Bridal Suite to get Katharine ready for her big day! After getting Katharine into her dress, the bridesmaids were given our bouquets.  KTW gave each of us a different bouquet of white flowers according to our personalities.  This was my favorite aspect of the wedding and was such a thoughtful idea! Then, it was picture time!

She truly looked stunning. I know everyone says a woman looks most beautiful on her wedding day but, yall, SHE DID! In the 10+ years I have known Katharine, I have never seen her look as happy, relaxed, confident, and gorgeous as she did that Saturday.

Before we knew it, it was 5:30 and we headed to the beautiful church which was located in the center of Harvard's campus.  I tried to keep it together during the ceremony but Water Works Wilson could not be tamed.  Her father read Rudyard Kipling's moving poem, If, her Maid of Honor sang Ave Maria, and Katharine and Kyle shared their own vows.

Following the ceremony, we were escorted to The Harvard Club, and the venue was breathtaking.  The tables were decorated with sterling silver candelabras, and baby's breath centerpieces.  We dined on pasta, chicken, and filet and of course, Funfetti wedding cake!

Although it is sad to see a friend "grow up" and start a new chapter of life that no longer includes slumber parties, proms, and curfews, it is also comforting. If I had to pick a person to take on the best friend responsibilities I once held, I would confidently choose Kyle.  The wedding was beautiful and I was so blessed to have been able to take part. CONGRATS again you crazy kids!
