Andy & Summer's Wedding Weekend Pt. 1

We celebrated the marriage of Wayde's brother Andy to his longtime girlfriend Summer this past weekend! And with most family weddings, we were booked with a weekend full of nuptial festivities. So much so that I am breaking this into TWO posts:)

After an extra long car ride from Des Moines to Minneapolis (1 hr + lost to road construction...grrrr, but that's a summer road trip for you), we joined the bride & groom-to-be for their respective bachelor & bachelorette parties.

The boys met up at a shooting range while the girls partied at Prohibition. The bar is located on the 27th floor of the Foshay Building in downtown Minneapolis. If you're into incredible views & overpriced drinks, this place is for you. We celebrated my other sister-in-law Nicole's bachelorette party there a couple years ago and both time were equally enjoyable.

The rehearsal dinner which was held Saturday at The Black Forest Inn, which is Summer's place of employment. The restaurant is known for their authentic German cuisine and an infamous Richard Avedon photograph that a patron once shot bullets into. 

Also, this mural in the back parking lot kind of reminds me of Narnia.

Ruby with her Great Grandma Leanna. This gal has more spunk than most people a quarter of her age. Earlier this year, we lost Great Grandpa Wayde (her husband of 50+ years) to cancer. They traveled the world together and in his memory, Leanna has booked a trip to ANTARCTICA in December to spread some of Grandpa's ashes. That way they will have visited all seven continents "together". Seriously, such an inspiration!!

I can't wait to share Part 2 of Andy & Summer's wedding weekend! The ceremony was inspired by Boardwalk Empire and was one of the most beautiful I've attended...Stay tuned!! xx
