As I have mentioned a few times I had the honor of acting as bridesmaid in the nuptials of two very good friends of mine on Friday. For as long as I have known them they have been best friends and madly in love and the wedding really only solidified what I already knew: These two are going to live hapiily ever after!
Thursday night was the rehersal dinner at a restaurant downtown. Its Summerlicious in Toronto so we were given a reduced menu but luckily the selection was still great. I didn't take photos of the food (blogger fail!) but I had a delicious gazpacho with goat cheese and basil, followed by a curried vegetable ragout and chickpea fritter. Yummy!
Oh, and there might have been a few of these:
After the dinner we retreated to the maid of honor's house for the all-girl sleepover, which to my surprise actually was a "sleep"over. Everyone was so exhausted from all the running around to get ready for the big day that we practically went straight to bed.
Friday was another semi-early morning for us. With so much to do and only so many hours (there was more than 8 but the time flew!!) we had to get an early start.
Off we went to the spa for a very relaxing (and in my case, much needed mani-pedi). For those of you who run I think you might be able to relate with the need for some serious foot-love every once and a while right?
After the spa we were off again, this time back to get ready for a 5pm photo shoot before the ceremony (this many ladies and you need extra time so there's no battle for bathroom time)
