It was so much fun having everyone get ready together! Amanda did a great job detaching my mother’s veil from a lace cap and then reattaching it to my hair comb. Nicole did all of the bridesmaid hair (with some help from Emily), we sipped champagne and I gave an impromptu speech (thus the tears you’ll see when you scroll down). One set of photos I didn’t include, but maybe will later since this was certainly of of my favorite memories, are from when we passed around some sports photo buttons of Kyle as a kid and teenager – the photos are adorable and hilarious since they don’t resemble present-day Kyle at all (Kyle used to look like a Backstreet Boy).
Here are the best of the photos from the hotel room with the bridesmaids and Kroeger family:
And off we went to get some photos!
