Although it’s a season I feel as stretched on for years (or maybe I just feel that way in my perpetual state of singleness…), I’m smack dab in the middle of that time of life where all my friends are getting married.  This weekend welcomed another pair of newlyweds into my life:  Elizabeth and Patrick!

How pretty are the bridesmaids dresses?  I loved the deep, rich purple, it was perfect for a fall wedding!

The beautiful bride and her proud father!

It was so heartwarming to watch Elizabeth and Patrick look at each other with so much love in their eyes.

They couldn’t have had a more beautiful day for a wedding!  It was warm, without a cloud in the sky!  Add that to the fall colors with the leaves changing and it was the epitome of a perfect fall day!

The ceremony itself was crazy short – it couldn’t have been more than 15 minutes between Patrick walking the mothers down to their seats to the new bride and groom walking back down the aisle!  Short and sweet makes for the perfect ceremony in my book!

The quick ceremony left the guests with time to kill until the reception starts.  Naturally, this means a self-portrait photo shoot!

I made the unfortunate decision to wear heels.  I couldn’t tell you the last time I wore heels!

So my feet were killing me by the end of the night time the dancing started (when I caved and switched to my classy Old Navy flip-flops.

I always worry just a bit at weddings about what the vegetarian friendly meal options will be; I definitely didn’t have a problem at this one, there was a lot I could choose from!  A pasta bar, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and salad!

I, of course, had to get the obligatory picture with the bride!

Andrea was one of the bridesmaids and since there wasn’t a head table, she and I sat together at the reception!  It’s always nice to spend time with my dear friend!

I had a wonderful time celebrating with the new bride and groom!  Congratulations, Elizabeth and Patrick on starting this new journey together!  I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness!
