Last weekend I was a bridesmaid in a wedding for the very first time! And, it was for one of my best friends, Jasmine's, wedding in Columbus, GA. Jasmine and I have known each other since we were three months old and went to daycare together for years. Our moms said that in daycare we were inseparable and insisted on doing everything the same. And to this day, we (not purposely) order the same food items at restaurants and wear similar outfits when we meet up to hangout. The bond is still strong! It was an honor to stand up there with her on her special day and to have such a pleasant first experience as a bridesmaid. She is the sweetest person and she made last weekend such a spectacular experience for everyone!
A few nights before the wedding, the wedding party had a meet and greet dinner and all of the bridesmaids wore black when we hadn't even planned it!
Jasmine wore black too, but at least she had her special sash to look different :)
Jasmine loves French manicures, so we all got our nails done this way. I hadn't gotten a French manicure in years, but I think I like it!
The day of the wedding, the bridesmaids got their makeup done and then we took some selfies while waiting to take the official photos. I love our bridesmaid dresses, see details here!
I got to see a few of Jasmine and her new husband, Kwame's, pre-ceremony photos including the one above. There was a wall in between them so they couldn't see each other. But this is where they exchanged gifts and held hands before officially getting married. It was too sweet and I thought this photo really captured the moment!
Jasmine looked absolutely beautiful and she did not stop smiling on her wedding day.
Kwame's cake was super creative and shaped like a bible with a scripture written on it.
They also had a candy bar set up with purple candy to match her wedding colors, so fun!
This cake and the display were beautiful, and the cake tasted amazing. Have I mentioned I am obsessed with wedding cake?!
Here's a picstitch I made of me and Jasmine with a photo of us in elementary school and one of us on her wedding day. She is so special to me and I will never forget her wedding weekend!
Have a great weekend! I can't believe I'm starting my second semester of grad school on Monday!
