The festivities started on Friday morning with the Bridesmaid's luncheon at Tin Angel. Though this restaurant is a Nashville Hot-Spot, I had never been. It was so nice. We had a private room with plenty of room to mingle.
Friday afternoon was the rehearsal at Scarritt-Bennett. Since the rehearsal itself took no time at all, we had some time to kill before the dinner started. Two of the other bridesmaids, Erin and Erin, joined Wesley and me for a little pre-dinner treat - a cupcake at GiGi's. Yummy!
Let me tell you, Ashley and Scott know how to throw a great party! The food was fabulous! The room looked amazing! The music was great and Wesley and I danced all night long! We had such a great time!
The best part of the evening though was seeing the HUGE smiles on Ashley and Scott's faces. They were so happy to be married and I know they were able to enjoy the night. It was a special, wonderful evening, and I was so honored I was a part of it!
Didn't Ashley look amazing!!

Since Ashley and I have known each other since the 1st grade, she is like an extended member of my family. Everyone loves Ashley and they were so glad to be able to celebrate at the wedding with her and Scott.
Since it is rare that we are all together and dressed up, I made a big deal about getting this picture before the reception started. We all clean up pretty good, huh?
