“I want to see beauty. In the ugly, in the sink, in the suffering, in the daily, in all the days before I die, the moments before I sleep.“
+Cuppies has embraced Fall, which makes me so happy! I enjoyed this pumpkin (or Bibbity Bobbity Boo) cupcake while chatting with my dear friend, Steph last week. It was a lovely experience that made me dream of crunching leaves and crisp breezes.
+The guys have been working hard on building more tables and benches for Friendsgiving this year. Some of the tables will look a bit different this year, and I love it. Here’s a sneak peek :)
+Sometimes Oklahoma really has the best sunsets and sunrises of anywhere in the world. Maybe I’m not authorized to make that statement, but I think it’s true.
+We were in Manhattan, KS this weekend for Sean and Kristen’s wedding! It was so much fun to celebrate such dear friends. Here’s us toasting to Sean while we were waiting for the rehearsal dinner to start haha
+The reception venue was an old theater (so. cool.), and that’s also where the rehearsal dinner took place. I thought it was so cool that this marquee was posted all weekend long!
+Sharing a room with these weirdos was…interesting haha They didn’t actually sleep in the bed like that, they just insisted I take this photo…
+Danielle and I got to hang out most of the weekend, since the guys were all in the wedding (and therefore were pretty busy), so we spent most of our time exploring Manhattan’s adorable “Aggieville” My favorite spot was (of course) Radina’s Coffeehouse & Bakehouse. Not only were they a cozy shop with great coffee, they had killer pastries. This popover pie had bacon, potatoes, and cheese in it. I’m drooling just remembering how delicious it was! I’ll share more about all the places we went in Manhattan in another post!
++++Sean and Kristen got married in the gardens at Kansas State. It was a magical ceremony full of great music, tears, sweet promises, and flowers everywhere. I love that they asked everyone to keep their phones off during the ceremony (all of these photos are from before and after) so everyone would be fully present to experience their ceremony outside of a screen. So beautiful. Also, check out my handsome date :)
++If a reception isn’t an epic dance party, then what is it? Haha, I love this photobooth shot of the ladies of “The 5,” and of course who doesn’t love watching a couple’s first dance after the wedding?! Sean and Kristen, you guys are too cute, please stop.
+ Sorry for the blurry photo, but I had to capture this moment! The 5 started a tradition at our wedding where all of them take turns dancing with the bride to Chicken Fried by Zac Brown Band. I’m not sure where Sean Hood was for this, but the rest of the guys danced with Kristen, and it was great :)
+Eventually we had to come home from Manhattan :( but I was excited to get our Fall decorations out when we got home! I’m not finished putting them up yet, but maybe I’ll share when I have!
+I visited Junction Coffee again this week. Man, it’s just so cool. Especially on a foggy morning like that one–I just want to be in London all the time!
This weekend I have the Changed Retreat! I’m so excited!
I hope your weekend is amazing :)
