The Prince Wedding

Last Saturday Tyler's sister Kim got married on a boat in Newport Beach. It was one of the most unique weddings I've been to and it was beautiful and a ton of fun! Only complaint was that it was way too short!! We could have partied for twice as long on that boat!!

 I was part of the Pit Crew which meant I wasn't in the wedding but I helped a ton with all the behind the scenes stuff. Let me say, this is totally my element, guys! I get really overstressed as a bridesmaid because I want to be everything and more to the bride while maintaining my own life and budget {hello, weddings are expensive to be in!}. So being part of Kim's Pit Crew meant I could be super helpful without any real expectations from anyone! I had so much fun being helpful! I made the bride and groom both "Wedding Day Survival Kits" (the groom's mostly had candy and snacks!) & I rocked a fanny pack most of the day full of q-tips, rubber bands, bobby pins, medicine, nail files, clear nail polish, safety pins, basically everything that would fit!

I was really stupid for not bringing my DSLR camera to the wedding, but I just knew that I would be too busy to carry it around and babysit it all day. I stole some pictures from Facebook, so if they're yours and you want some sort of credit, just let me know!

Great side shot of Tyler & his sisters taking pictures, this warms my heart!!

I'm actually in this one, just to the right of the bride! lol!

Because it was a hosted soft bar {beer, wine, champagne}, this is what the after party looked like: 

You don't want to see the videos from the after party! Or... maybe you do? Either way, it was a GREAT wedding and I haven't laughed and had so much fun in such a long time {that is to say the company was beyond words, not that I haven't had a good time lately}! Incredible wedding and I'm so glad I could be a part of it! Congratulations Kim & Ryan!!
