Wisconsin for a wedding

So for the last few days, I (Leslie) have been out of town in Chicago, then Madison, WI and now back to Chicago to attend two of the three most important weddings for me this year – my former roommate Missy’s wedding in Madison and my brother’s wedding in Chicago (the third is my cousins wedding in Denver in Oct!). On Thursday I flew into Chicago with my other former roommate Nikita and we stayed the night at our friend Jenn’s house in Mundelein, IL. Friday morning I took off with Jenn, Nik and Mallory (another former roommate!) for Madison, about a 2.5 hour drive through beautiful countryside and, as Mallory was pleased to note, lots of cow pastures – (“it’s not Wisconsin without black and white cows!!”). The wedding on Saturday was one of the BEST weddings I’ve ever attended, complete with (obviously) a radiant bride, a groom who has such a way with words he had all the guests (including his groomsmen!) crying during his speech, incredible food (and an open bar…), cheese samplers, Wisconsin beer, a photobooth and a live band! I’m still reeling from that party. Another huge honor for me was singing during the ceremony – Missy graced my wedding with her heavenly vocal chords – her voice is one of the sweetest sounds known to this world! So when she asked me to sing in hers I couldn’t have been happier. Missy and her husband Jake were both vocal majors at Belmont so 1/2 the wedding guests were talented friends of theirs from undergrad – there was so much singing and music throughout the whole weekend it was awesome!

En estos ultimos dias he estado viajando, primero a Chicago despues a Madison y de vuelta a Chicago para asistir a dos de las tres bodas mas importantes para mi este ano – my ex companera de cuarto Missy, mi hermano Ian y la tercera sera en Octubre, mi prima Heather!). El Jueves viaje a Chicago con mi otra ex companera de cuarto y nos quedamos en casa de nuestra amiga Jenn. El viernes en la manana salimos con Jenn, Nikita y Mallory rumbo a Madison,  2 horas y media de manejo por el hermoso campo y, como Mallory dijo, un monton de praderas para las vacas (pq no es Wisconsin son vacas!). La boda el Sabado fue una de las mejoras bodas he he asistido, con una bellisima novia, un novio que maneja el lenguaje de manera increble, tanto asi que tenia a todos llorando durante su discurso, comida increible, bar abierto, quesos, cerveza de Wisconsin, fotografias y musica en vivo!! Todavia me estoy recuperando. Otro gran honor para mi fue cantar en la ceremonia – Missy nos deleito con su voz en mi boda – su voz es uno de los sonidos mas bonitos del mundo! Asi que cuando me pidio que cantara en su ceremonia no podia estar mas feliz. Missy y su esposo Jake estudiaron canto en Belmont asi que la mitad de los invitados era talentosos amigos de la universidad – hubo tanta musica y canto durante el fin de semana que fue genial!

I didn’t take my camera with me (shocking, I know) for all of the adventures but I did get a few photos on my Nikon and iphone sporadically throughout the weekend.

No traje mi camara esta vez (que raro!) pero si saque algunas fotos con mi telefono durante el fin de semana.
