Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps (My Sister's Wedding!)

My sister got married on Saturday and it was such a crazy, busy but extremely fun weekend.  This post is wedding heavy but there is just too much to not share.  You can find more photos on my Instagram.  

The bridesmaids, my mom and I, spent Friday morning preparing these 
tasty red velvet cupcakes-in-a-jar favours for the wedding.  
We ran out of cupcakes so my sister was baking more that morning!

Sweet champagne flutes the bride designed for her bridesmaids.  
We took these to our hair appointment the morning of the wedding to have mimosas.

Caroline, at Noir Salon, did my hair and killed it.  
I was so pleased with how it turned out, even better than my inspiration photo!

 The finished product.  Ah-mazing (I even slept on it and wore it to brunch the next day).

From the salon, we went back to my sister's place to get dressed.  
I did my own make up (the bride requested a smokey purple eye), 
the bride got dressed and we headed to the ceremony.
Outfit deets:  Alfred Sung dress, Paris Hilton heels (similar), Silk flower bouquets from Morgann Hill Designs.


During photos, the Best Man and I came up with a plan to switch shoes to enter the reception.  
The photographer caught the moment (haha!).

We hit up a skate park after the formal photos and the newlyweds 
switched their shoes for some more fun shots.

We rode around in style, thanks to the bride & groom's excellent taste (and budget!).

 First dance.

 The favours turned out so well (missing: the thin black ribbon & black spoon tied to the jar) and were a huge hit.

 Three words:  midnight. poutine. buffet.

Congratulations Lisa & Adam!
