Wedding Weekend

My sister Kristen married her boyfriend Jim this weekend in Chicago. It was sooooooo much fun and an absolutely gorgeous wedding. You can see in the pics below how pretty the church and reception site were. The pictures almost don't do them justice- they were seriously tdf. It looked so old school Chicago with all of the beautiful chandeliers, wood work, christmas decorations, and huge fireplaces. I want to go back and just hang out in the room and spend more time talking to everybody that flew in for the weekend. It is amazing how quickly one day can go by.

These pics were sent this morning from Jim's cousin Brian who is a great photographer. I will post some more of my pics later, but i wanted to start with the good ones :)

Here is the giant bridal party- 10 bridesmaids and 2 flower girls

Yah! You didn't tell me we made the blog :) So fun... I have been reading this for at least an hour. And I'm watching Biggest Loser. Jim is at class... he doesn't approve of me watching "crap" TV, so I also watched Gossip Girl and Grey's Anatomy while he was out. Hehehe. Madeleine was a fun roomie :) Anyway, I totally know how you feel with your winter ick-ness. Maybe I should start a blog to help express my feelings, too. Pat is probably glad you don't just tell him anymore....
