Here comes weekend catch up #2...a few weeks late!
My baby sister got married on October 3, back home in Iowa City. Her wedding was actually at a similar venue to ours. They shut down the venue where we married due to zoning laws, but the owner rebuilt similar structures and that's where Natty and Matt got married.
It was gorgeous! As matron of honor with my older sister, I obviously knew the theme and some of the details, but I didn't know everything. I was so proud of my little sister's planning! They went for a chic, rustic fall wedding, with their colors being deep purple and orange. Everything seriously came together flawlessly and was just gorgeous, from the flowers to the guest book. It was almost like stepping INSIDE Pinterest.

The three 'Zupek' girls
Given the time of year, everyone expected cooler weather, but no one one expected the 47 degree temps that day. Despite the wind and cold, the show went on, with an outdoor ceremony. Honestly, it wasn't that bad. They decided to warm guests with hot apple cider as they took their seats and they got heat lamps for the wedding party at the altar. Lifesavers. And since the reception was held mostly inside, the temps were only a minor issue.
With my preggo besties!

My handsome hubby & I. Let's hope baby gets Daddy's looks!
Since they got married on a Friday, on Saturday, my dad and stepmom hosted an "after party" where everyone opened presents, ate leftover food, drank leftover booze and watched college football. Children ran wild and adults drank away their hangovers. (Wamp wamp.) That night, we went to one last dinner with everyone before they took off on Sunday. It was great to be able to see my cousins, aunts and uncles who live all over the U.S. and we don't see often enough!
Sloan was a bit out of sorts after the weekend. Only Uncle Bry Bry could calm her down. These pics seriously melt me.
