Snowy Wedding Recap... AE becomes AV :)

On October 29, 2011 Miss AE became Mrs. AV after marrying Mr. AV in a beautiful wedding! The wedding was gorgeous, but I would expect nothing less from AE.  Before I go into their wedding and how beautiful it was, I feel like I have to give you a little bit of a back story between Miss AE and I... because let me tell you, we were not always friends.

AE and I met at Bucknell when we both pledge Chi Omega in the Fall of 2004.  Yes we were pledge class sisters, but we were definitely not fast friends.  We made it through 3 years of Chi Omega without talking too much... and I'm not really sure why.  Well I guess I am sure why... we had a different group of friends so we didn't really run in the same crowd.  If you had asked me in college if I were going to be invited to AE's wedding I would have laughed at you and said "Yeah right."

This is one of the ONLY pics I have that has both AE and myself in it from our Chi Omega Days

AE & I at a date party spring of our Senior year... this is one of the few pics I can find of us... literally don't see any from Junior Year lol

Fast forward to a couple of years after Bucknell when AE moved to the Philly area.  I could never remember why we didn't get along in college so I decided to reach out to her since we were living close to each other.  During the past few  years AE has without a doubt become one of my best friends... so much so that I am positive that when I get married she will be a member of my wedding party.  AE and I have had a lot of good times together over the years, so needless to say I was thrilled (and terrified at the same time) when she asked me to do a reading in her wedding.

My entire weekend was filled with activities for the AE and AV wedding starting on Thurs night with a casual dinner a the AE/AV household... then Friday was a bridal party luncheon, followed by getting our nails done, followed by the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner.  Then Saturday was the big day!  They had predicted snow for Saturday, but personally I didn't really think that it would happen.  Imagine my surprise when I woke up to snow on the ground.  I was quite nervous about the wedding because the roads were horrible, I couldn't wear my shoes properly, and my dress was going to drag in the snow.  I was also nervous about how AE was going to handle it because well I don't think many October brides think about snow on their wedding day.  Despite the snow I don't think the day could have been any more perfect (or at least it couldn't have been from my perspective...)

As always with weddings... a picture is worth a thousand words so here are some pics from all of the wedding festivities.
