It's the most wonderful time of the yeeeeear...

Nope. Not Christmas.

Not autumn.

(Although I really love this time of year as well.)

But, I'm talking about wedding season!!! And by season, I really mean a continuous whirlwind of engagements, weddings, (and for some even babies). And I don't see an end in sight anytime soon.

From now until this time next year, we already have 7 weddings: I'm the Matron of Honor in one, Mr. Ruby is a groomsman in one, and both of us are in another wedding together (so cute). Friends from college. Friends from home. Friends from our Little Rhody Family. Engagement Parties. Bachelorette and Bachelor Parties. Bridal Showers. Rehearsal Dinners. Multiple flights.

Phew! I'm exhausted just thinking about it (not to mention the brutal beating on my wallet).

But...I couldn't LOVE wedding season more. I enjoy sharing in others' special days and watching them enter into wedded bliss!!! I love the planning process, ewwing and awwing over color combinations, helping the bride prep, watching the exchange of vows, catching the subtle glances that couples make when no one is "looking", getting caught up in the emotions, and of course grooving at the afterparty. ;)

So come on wedding season - BRING IT!!!! :)

Speaking of wedded bliss...I totally forgot to post pictures from my good friends' engagement party weekend! This is the wedding both Mr. Ruby and I are in. Can't WAIT!!!!

The lucky bride and groom to be:

Umm. Wouldn't be a party without BEER PONG! :)

The Groomsmen (leave it to my husband to goof the pic)
Intense conversation (about weddings or beer pong...)

Some good lookin' bridesmaids

Ha! Everyone kept secretly putting stickers in Mr. Ruby's back pockets without him knowing. ;)
