Good thing we packed our sea legs, because it was one choppy, sloppy, wet wedding weekend!
Here’s the Cliff Notes version…
Way too late the night before, I decided that it was time to pack. Here’s me on the bathroom floor trying to gather toiletries.
We woke up at 6 AM which was about six hours from the time this photo was taken. I thought I’d be a zombie all morning, but for some odd reason, when I have to get up for work it’s really hard to get out of bed. When I have to wake up to catch a Ferry to Block Island for an awesome time, I spring out of bed chipper as can be. Weird how that works huh?
We hit traffic on the way to the ferry, and had to run (literally) with our bags to catch it. Thankfully we made it or we would have been late to the wedding.
We checked in to our hotel (that I forgot to take a photo of, but here’s one from their website…).
I didn’t spend much time scouring the island and snapping shots because it was raining the entire time we were there! I felt so bad for the bride. She had always wanted a beach wedding, and here we are in the pouring rain. Like the blog title says, we definitely had to find the silver lining on these clouds.
I packed the green dress and the peach dress in case I changed my mind. I asked the bride & her sisters when we were all hanging out at their beach house and sipping mimosas (my fave!). The thought the green was too dressy. So, I took the bride’s advice and went with the peach.
Mr FSL & I ran in the pouring rain, with my heels in my hand (I wore flip-flops to run in 😛 ). Good thing I wore my hair in a ponytail, or it would have looked like this:
and not in a good way.
Here’s me with wet hair stuck to my forehead.
The wedding had to happen inside. If you’ve ever been to Block Island, it was at Ballards. Here are a few pics of the inside…
After the food, the drinks took over for most people.
Here’s my photo reel of the night’s events a la The Hangover Movie (they go from good to crazy as the night went on:
The maid of honor was my partner in crime all night…
Me & my bff April (the bride’s sister) realizing that we just cut the friggin cake. Uh, not okay, lol! Luckily, the bride thinks we are hilarious. Phew!
The next morning was not pretty. Still rainy.
We went into a few vintage shops.
Saw some nice stuff…
I fell in love with this rug, but the mark up on the island is crazy, so I went home with a hangover and some Laffy Taffys from the candy shop.
What did you guys do this weekend?
What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done at a wedding?! Please make me feel better…
