After our yummy breakfast and our amazing massages, it was time to get ready for the wedding.

Gotta set the hair before we do this hairdo I tried…

Before I show you final pics… I’ll tell you, it looked AWESOME from the back, but I sort of hated the front.  Yep, should’ve scheduled an appointment… OH WELL.

And… before I show you wedding pics, I think you need to see my fabulous MOH gift Angela got me.  So freakin thoughtful!

For my NTTC business cards…

I feel so official!

Ok, without further ado… here are the pics from Angela and Jamie’s beautiful wedding.

All the guests…

Fun pic!

Ang and her girls…

Super squinty in the desert sun!

Love this one… the Papparazzi snapping pics of the new couple

After the wedding, there was a two hour break between the wedding and the reception… so, Jaede and I decided to hit the pool at the Cosmopolitan.  It was REALLY hot out there… and I’ve never seen so many people laying at the pool.  Crazy!

Chillin with Rum Punches at the Bamboo Pool

The reception ended up being a little more casual than expected, so Jaede and I found something on the casual side to wear, redressed and headed off to the Wynn!

The rum punch had kicked in a little…

My favorite bar at the Wynn…

One more photo with the gorgeous bride


Post dinner, it was time to gamble… but before we gambled, we decided to spin the prize wheel at the Cosmopolitan to win big!  I did win big, but unfortunately, I only won a meal at the Wicked Spoon (and we had no meals left!)  So… bought dinner for a cute couple waiting for a table.  So fun!

Next stop was the slots, followed by the roulette table, and then onto the purple chair that we thought we should have a picture in.

Posing in the purple chair at the Cosmopolitan…

A little more posing…

And… our photog decided to jump into the last picture

The reception was still well underway… so we met back up with the group again.

One last pic of the 3 Amigas.

With an early early flight on Monday morning, Jaede and I turned into pumpkins at about midnight.  What a great trip to Vegas…

As I close out today’s post… a message to the Newlyweds, since I’ll be missing their Nashville wedding bash this weekend.  If I were there, I would hope to have a chance to toast them.  And since we all know I’m a horrible toastmistress, I’ve written a note instead:

Angela  – 

I can’t even begin to tell you how honored I was to be a part of your special day, and what a treat it was to get to spend three days with you guys in Vegas.  Every bit of it was perfect… and I hope it felt that way to you.  I love that even in a big group we were all able to visit and that I had a chance to get to know some of the people in life that mean the most to you and Jamie.  

I’ve had the chance to “grow” up with you over the past 17 years… and I’m so proud of the woman that you’ve become.  You continue to inspire me on a daily basis to be a better person, to be stronger, and to chase after my dreams.  You’re really an example to us all, my dear… and you make it look so easy (despite having 12 jobs!)

I also love that you’ve found your match in Jamie and the joy I saw beaming from each of you all weekend long.  Wishing you a lifetime of laughter and happiness.  You’re well on your way, my dear.  Love you, show!

Jamie – 

Congratulations….  You’ve married my best friend and one of the most terrific ladies on the planet.  I hope you always keep that same look you had on the day of your wedding… that look of adoration (the same one she was reflecting back at you.)  It suits you both so well, and inspires the rest of us to find a love as precious as the one you two share.    

So, so happy for you… and happy to have you as part of my family as well.  Thank you in advance for letting us shop (hand-holding) in Chanel as we grow old (and get even more gorgeous.)  In return, I’ll make sure you have enough Buffalo Chicken Pizza to enjoy while we’re away spending all of your money.  

Love you both, and wish I could be at your big bash this weekend to celebrate.  Definitely there in spirit!  xoxo
