This past weekend we went to our friends Laurel and Kyle's wedding in Poughkeepsie, New York. The ceremony and reception were held at the Duchess County Country Club. (I didn't bring my really good camera with me and I had a lot of trouble getting good pictures during the ceremony and reception, so my pictures are a bit lacking in quantity and quality this time around, sorry!) This was the very first Scottish wedding we've been to, so all the men wore kilts and they entered to bagpipe music, which was awesome. Of course, the flower girls were so adorable:
Laurel looked gorgeous, I loved her dress and I loved her necklace which also hung down her neck and rested along the middle of her back, it was really pretty. Her purple calla lilly bouquet was also very striking.
The ceremony was really sweet. Laurel cried through her vows, which in turn made me cry. I teared up more than I did at my own ceremony!! Each guest received a tiny bell to ring at the end of the ceremony and as the bridal party walked out.
After the ceremony, we enjoyed cocktail hour. I was able to get this picture while I snagged Chris away from the pulled pork sandwich bar, where he promptly camped out for the entire hour...they were really good.
Then we headed into the reception where they shared their first dance. This is my favorite picture from the night (check out her necklace!) and how much does Kyle love her here?!

The cake was beautiful! I loved the color and the white decoration.
Our favors were little bags filled with a delicious chocolate chip cookie and little chocolates, which were amazing!
