On June 7th, 2008, on of my oldest friends, Jodie Flaherty, married Mr. Brian Murray at St. Joseph's Church in Hopkins, Minnesota. She is my first close friend to get married, and it was extra special for me to be in the wedding, let alone be there in the first place despite the craziness that is my nursing program.
Jodie's wedding party included her 2 sisters, Jamie and Jill as matrons of honor, a friend from high school, Annie, a friend from pharmacy school, Emily (from whom I stole many of these photos), and myself. Brian's twin brother was his best man, and many college and childhood friends made up the rest of the party. Not pictured above are Jodie's 2 personal attendents, Kerry and Justine who did a fabulous job and made the whole experience a super fun time!
After the ceremony, as if Flaherty tradition, we took a trolley ride around Minneapolis while the bride and groom took some more pictures and the wedding party celebrated....mostly with beer and champagne and a few Smirnoff Ices (thankfully for yours truly...)
The beautiful bride...what a cute picture! That's a framer! She looked great all day long.
The party took place at the Sheraton in Minnetonka, Minnesota. And we all had a fabulous time!! (See below...)
Erin and Steve get lovey-dovey....

Future brother-in-law bonding. So sweet.

The night was a blast, and I wish Jodie and Brian all the happiness and healthiness in the world. Love you guys!
