After our nails, we grabbed some lunch at Panera and then went our separate ways again until rehearsal. I had to run a quick errand which turned into a scavenger hunt for a yellow cardigan because Ashley forgot hers in Omaha. Luckily, Target still had the one that I was going to wear and I had brought a backup, so I bought that one for Ashley and it turned our to be a great choice! I don't have any pics from the rehearsal or rehearsal dinner, but it was a great time.
We ran through the rehearsal, worked out some kinks, and then as we were getting ready to leave, Ashley and Andy gave their gifts to the wedding party. The girls got these personalized bags and this super cute monogram necklace.
Then we headed out to the rehearsal dinner tailgate/picnic. It was so laid back and perfect, it was a wonderful atmosphere to just relax, have fun, and enjoy some great food! Ashley's mom made some beans that were just to-die-for and all the rest of it was great too. I wish I had some pictures, her mom made this beautiful bunting to hang around the shelter it was stoo cute! The only downfall was the hike to the bathroom...well the hike down wasn't bad, but coming back up was quite the workout out, lol.
Wedding day arrived and started right off the bat with some hair appointments!

|Ashley looked so stunning already!|
The men started their pictures at 2:00, and Laura and I had to run down there to bring them their boutonnieres (made from buttons!) and I snapped this picture of the sharp looking men.

We give this wedding two thumbs up! I had so much fun and it was so special to me to stand up there with those two. I've been friends with Andy since 8th grade, he's been one of my best friends since junior year of high school and when Ashley came into his life, I was so blessed to become one of her best friends too! They are two of the greatest people I know and I am so happy for them. So congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Flater!!
