The Last Sibling Gets Hitched

60 comments

……And she finally gets a post up!

I spoke to my brother in law today (who lives out west) and he said, ‘Geeze, Ange no post from you again this morning!!!!’. lol. My sister Kristi and family couldn’t make it to the wedding so they were anxiously awaiting a recap!

The wedding was a lot of fun. My brother Chris and his long time girlfriend Nicole got hitched yesterday! Chris is my half brother (same with my sister Kerrie) and he is the last one of my siblings and I (me, Kristi, Kerrie, Chris) to get married!

We arrived at the Hilton Hotel around 1pm. The hotel was quite nice and very reasonably priced for the size of the rooms. We got this mini suite (2 rooms) for $110 CAD which is pretty much unheard of in the Toronto area. We lived it up!

The bed was so comfy!!!!

See, I really did try to blog from the hotel room…I just never got around to it! lol.

Eric is always a bit stressed when he has to tie a tie. lol.

IMG 6038 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched

We also had a great view! The weather was picture perfect as you can see. A gorgeous late summer day.

IMG 6051 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched

I curled my hair and did my make-up. It was nice that we arrived early so we could get ready in the comfort of our own room (and also not wrinkle our clothes in the car).

Eric got this funny picture of me putting on mascara. That is one of those super magnified mirrors (love/hate those! lol).

IMG 6043 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched 

Come on ladies, you know you make weird faces when you put on mascara too! ;)

Me after primping and prepping:

This dress is 8 YEARS old! I had only worn it once (to my mom and stepdad’s wedding reception) and it still fit like a glove, so I thought why not save some moula and wear it!? I forgot how much I love this dress! It is so me- plunging neckline and nice detail on the back…you know how I love my deep V’s and interesting backs!

IMG 6054 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched 

Eric looked hot as usual. ;)

Around 3pm, it was time to pick up my Grammy + her partner and head down to the ceremony!

My Grammy just GLOWS doesn’t she???? She doesn’t look it, but she is in her mid-80’s!!!!!! Doesn’t she look amazing? I can only hope and dream I have skin as nice as hers when I am her age! Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen!

I love my Grammy so much. :)

IMG 6138 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched 

The wedding was big- 248 guests! It made our <110 wedding seem tiny!

IMG 6065 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched

My brother is a firefighter and he wore his firefighter suit + white gloves. He looked so handsome.

IMG 6071 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched

Beautiful flowers too!

IMG 6070 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched

The beautiful bride Nicole and her dad and stepdad walked her down the aisle.

IMG 6076 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched

They poured sand into a jar as a symbol of their love…

IMG 6081 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched

It was a very nice ceremony! I teared up of course (but had no tissue- eek!).

After the ceremony Eric and I went to the hotel room to grab a beer and then headed down for pictures.

IMG 6093 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched

I still can’t believe how good Bud Light Lime tastes! Officially obsessed…Any other fans out there?

IMG 6096 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched

The beautiful wedding party…

IMG 6126 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched

My bro and I…

IMG 6130 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched

Then it was cocktail time. We each had a Coors Light.

IMG 6108 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched 

And then it was time for dinner and dancing! Yawhoo!

IMG 6132 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched 

Their cake was crazy!!!!!!!!!

IMG 6133 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched IMG 6134 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched IMG 6135 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched

Dinner was a cream based soup (which I skipped), salad, and they served me a ‘vegan’ pasta (that had cheese on it, lol) so I just picked around the cheese. Eric had chicken + roasted potatoes + veggies.

IMG 6160 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched IMG 6159 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched

After dinner, we danced the night away! Everyone danced at this wedding- I just love a good party-hard crowd!

IMG 6168 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched

Kerrie, myself, and a bridesmaid cutting up a rug!

IMG 6172 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched

Let’s just say I was a VERY bad influence on my brother in law Steve!!!! LOL

IMG 6170bcopy thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched

I had everyone doing vodka shots…

IMG 6175 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched

I’m always up to no good, aren’t I? *devil grin*

IMG 6177 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched 

Eric and the firefighters!

IMG 6179 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched 

Someone get this girl to bed ASAP!

IMG 6181 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched

Eric and I danced from about 9pm until 1:30am. We both love dancing.

After the reception was over, we hosted an after party in our hotel room until about 4-4:30am!!! I kept telling everyone that I was getting up at 8am to run.

That SOOO didn’t happen! ;)

We woke up starving for breakfast this morning, and met everyone downstairs. I feasted on whole wheat toast, fruit, water, and two cups of green tea:

My plate:

IMG 6182 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched 

Vs. Eric’s plate: LOL (then he made me go up for him and get him MORE French toast!)

IMG 6183 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched 

I was so happy that the Hilton carried TAZO green tea!!!!!! Usually hotel teas are WEAK if you know what I mean.

IMG 6184 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched 

I had about 2 bottles of water and 2 cups of green tea. Then an apple on the drive home and more water. I think I am finally replenished!

IMG 6185 thumb   The Last Sibling Gets Hitched

Surprisingly after only 4 hours of sleep, I am not doing TOO badly. Eric is currently passed out on the floor and Sketchie is sleeping on him (would you expect anything less??).

Our house is a disaster so I am going to try to muster up the strength to unpack, clean, and make a super cleansing dandelion green monster in a bit.

Enjoy your Sunday! :)

Coming up MONDAY:

  • I will be telling you what new pets Eric and I brought home today. :)
  • A HUGE Barney Butter giveaway (6 jars!!!!)

This comment of yours :
Eric looked hot as usual.

Me again….No my dear, that would be you! Smokin hot in your black 8 yr old diddy…mega props for resurrecting that and saving cash-ola on a wedding attendance dress you may wear once or twice, ever.

Weddings are always a time of dancing, drinking, staying up way too late and having a ball. Looks like this one was no different, how wonderful for you, your bro and his new wife, and your family. And yeah, your grammy looks 65 not in her 80s. The glow is genetic I’m thinkin :)

You are such a babe! I love dancing at weddings and usually hassle the DJ all night to play oldies (that’s how I roll).

And I love the dress, you can’t go wrong with a good black dress.

Reply

Lizzie September 13, 2009

I am SO envious of your hair – what did you use to curl it? I have long half wavy/half straight hair and would love to figure out how to do that. You looked amazing! That dress is gorgeous!

I also thought it was nice that the dad AND the step-dad walked her down the aisle. I have been to several weddings where that would never, ever have happened. Looks like heaps of fun. I showed your breakfast plate vs Eric’s breakfast plate to my husband and he said that is exactly what ours would look like.

Glad you had a good time!

Angela (Oh She Glows) September 13, 2009

Thank you!

used a regular old curling iron (1″)! Takes forever!

Reply

Lizzie September 13, 2009

Boooo . . :) I was kind of hoping it would be something else, as that’s what I have at the moment and I just lack the patience to wait while it works! :) But maybe I’ll give it another whirl.

Angela (Oh She Glows) September 13, 2009

Ive heard the Babyliss curlers work well. I think you can get them @ beauty supply stores. They might be a good option?

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) September 13, 2009

And by curlers I meant the rollers- not the iron!
