# Weddings

Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Juarez

There are a few special days in everyone's life that you will remember forever, and this past Saturday, I was lucky enough to experience one of those days. I was so blessed to witness my best friend marry the love of her life, and it was one of the most overwhelming and beautiful things I've ever seen. 

We started the weekend off at the hotel, where all of the girls congregated to get ready for the festivities. We all carpooled over to the church and once we arrived, things began to get really real. We were introduced to the lucky guys that would be escorting us, and even though they had a tough exterior, we could tell they were just as excited as we were for the big day. 
The Beautiful Bridesmaids at the Ceremony Rehearsal 
After our ceremony run through, the bride and groom were kind enough to treat their wedding party, and their family to dinner before their big day. It was a great kick off, we were able to get to know their family and the groomsmen, and a couple of the bridesmaids flew in from out of town, so it was great to catch up and spend time with them. Before we knew it, it was time to go our separate ways, the guys went to their hotel, and the girls went to ours, and the next time Meagan and Bernie saw each other, they would become husband and wife! 
My good friend Jessica who lives in North Carolina, it was so great to catch up!
Gimme your "Meagan's getting married face!"

Let's be real, none of us got ANY sleep on Friday night. All of our adrenaline was pumping and we were just so excited. We were up laughing and blasting Ariana Grande on the radio, it was crazy to think that this was Meagan's last night as a single woman! We woke up and the madness started. Hair and makeup showed up bright and early, and it was mayhem in that hotel suite! 8 girls waiting to get pampered, 4 hair and makeup team members, and one 1 anxious bride. As it always done, it all worked out, all the girls were taken care of, and 2 of our fellow bridesmaids were awesome and got us all In N Out so we could stuff our faces before the craziness started. Before we knew it, it was time to head to the church. 

We got there a half hour early, but it seemed as if only 3 minutes had passed before it was time to get started. Watching Meagan step into her wedding dress, and putting her veil on, is a moment that I will never forget. Everyone kept telling her how beautiful she was, and she just became so overcome with emotion that she almost started crying. So we stopped giving her compliments and started telling her that she looked hideous-that got a laugh out of her. 

I'll be completely honest with you, I thought I had been pretty strong throughout the whole process, but once we lined up and we're waiting to make our walk down the aisle, I completely lost it and started balling (curse you Cannon in D!). It was like a waterfall effect, once I started, another girl lost it, and then another one bit the dust. But we were able to pull it together, and made it down the aisle without shedding any tears and without wiping out (if you could only see those heels!). 

Watching Meagan walk down the aisle to the love of her life, and watching the way Bernie looked at her with tears in his eyes, will be a memory that I will never forget. Meagan has been in my life for almost 20 years, and Bernie for 8, it was an indescribable feeling watching true love become one right before my eyes. They share a love that I have never seen before. He loves her in an unconditional way that I have never seen, and it is clear to see that they are absolutely and 100% meant to be together. After the beautiful bilingual ceremony, it was time to party!! 

The reception was full of fun, laughs, and amazing food! It was the perfect way to end such an amazing beginning. There is no doubt in my mind that Meagan and Bernardo will have a long, happy life together, complete with unconditional love, adoration, bickering, and beautiful memories. I am a better person because I have Meagan and Bernie in my life, and I am so honored to have been part of their special day. So cheers to the NEW Mr. and Mrs. Bernardo Juarez!!
