This wedding was especially important because Matt was a best man. Actually, he was one of three best men. Mark, the groom, is just too likeable and loyal to choose just one. Like Jeff and Cayla, we've known Mark for nearly a decade, and Shane has been an important staple in our lives for about four years now, so obviously this wedding was going to be amazing just based on that.
|Saturday morning, the first photo of the day: Matt and Mark greeted each other with a warm hug.|
|Shane and the maid-of-honor, twin sister Danielle, getting their toes done!|
|The three best men awaiting instructions at the rehearsal.|
|Afterward, we grabbed dinner and drinks in Daytona.|
|More socializing...we rarely see these guys, so we had to squeeze as much time in as possible!|
|Heels, traveling, and dehydration caused some intense calf pain in the first half of the run, so I stretched a little while taking in this gorgeous view.|
|Mark's parents' backyard...what a great place to end a run!|
|I did my hair and makeup, then took a sneaky picture of the dress.|
|Serious perfection right here!|
|The limo was a 30-person stretch Hummer. Way more appropriate for clubbing than church!|
|Truly meant to be :)|
|The speeches were equal parts poignant and funny.|
|Can't get enough of these guys!|
|It was Cayla's turn to just enjoy the festivities!|
|I seriously think tuxes should be appropriate for daily wear!|
|The beautiful bride!|
|Cayla and I agree: being a guest is definitely more fun and less stressful than being the bride!|
I'm tempted to strong-arm some people into getting married soon just so we can go enjoy yet another wedding. Despite the driving and the residual exhaustion I'm feeling today, it was still a fantastic and perfect weekend.
Did your friends all start getting married at the same time?
How do you deal with running while traveling?
Do you like to run before a big day? Even though getting up early after a late night out is tough, I know a morning run will give me energy for later in the day. Plus, I love celebrating events with a good run!
