wedding goodness.

About time I share some actual wedding photos of my best friends wedding. I know I haven't been to many weddings, but this was one fantastic union. My best friend Vicki has always been a really amazing planner and very into details. That's how we actually bonded (being OCD about our Anatomy class notes in HS). Anyways, I hadn't been around much for all the planning and I honestly had no idea what to expect. I knew my bridesmaid dress was a gorgeous green and that she wanted to wear her hair up... and that was really it... maybe I wasn't the best bridesmaid...haha.
However, I couldn't have been more excited to be a part of her special day. I can't imagine being more happy for someone. As I stood up there listening to their vows I knew they had figured it out. They fit. I watched as her bottom lip quivered as her father handed her over to the groom and I teared up, happy tears. My best friend had found her soul mate.
As for the reception, it freaking rocked! Our photographer was literally the coolest person I've ever met.  I didn't even notice her most of the time, she was so low key. LOVED THAT. And her HAIR!!! I die, Leslee's hair was hands down the BEST! And I awkwardly told her that multiple times throughout the day... I lack social skills. I should also inform you that my best friend's mother is English and so the wedding was hybrid in a way. Women were encouraged to wear hats/fascinators and boy did they.
I've always said I've never wanted a wedding, but between Leslee Mitchell and possibly hiring the bride as my wedding planner, I could probably be talked into it. And thanks Vicki for choosing me to stand up there with you, I couldn't have been more honored. I'm so excited to see you and Michael grow... and of course many years from now have our little redheaded babies grow up together ;)
