Rockstar weekend for this Rockstarbride

This weekend was by far one of my most favourite and overwhelming weekends to date. On Saturday, Anne and Mike hosted an engagement party at their country home in Stirling. A mere 100+ friends and family stopped by. There was tons of laughs, food, RAIN and all the other elements that made for a perfect day.

Here are a couple of pictures. The clouds. Oh the haunting clouds.

The sign Mike made for us. Sadly, it spent most of the time in the garage to avoid being ruined (and in turn ruining the freshly painted garage).

My Martha Stewart-like flowers decorations.

The downpour. Really was awesome. Forced everyone into the garage to mingle. Really, as much as it would have been great to have a clear sky, I wouldn't have wanted it any other way.

Here's Jeremy amd Kalen after his 2nd escape into the rain.

To finish the night, the Dad and the Lads featuring Jim and Max boys played some Irish tunes to the crowd

The next day was my shower. This was hosted by Jillian (my bridesmaid) with help from my hometown friends Mandi and Megan. They went all out to throw me a rockstar shower. They even had a rider!! haha. Many of Jeremy's aunts and cousins rented a room in town so they can attend this. He has a tremendous family.

This cake was made by Mandi. She told me that once she left the e-bbq, she was up until 130am finishing it.

Of course, the traditional hat. At this time, the boy was calling. Stupid boys!! I have to say, this was the coolest hat I've ever seen made. Seriously. My friend Melissa has mad skills. Notice the birdcage veil?? Hellz ya!! I don't think she even knows I have one :)

The hat was so great both Grandma Foran and Jeremy wanted to try it on

Me and my friends

As I started this post, I mentioned this was by far one of my most favourite weekends. To see how many of our friends and family came out despite the crappy weather was shocking. We are way too lucky.
