Here comes the bride….

This past weekend, I was lucky enough to be able to stand in the wedding of one of my best friends. Words cannot even begin to describe how happy I am for these two people–Ashley has been my best friend since we were kids, playing Spice Girls in my backyard. And Shawn, her now husband, was introduced to our group in hilarious fashion over a game of Craninum many, many years ago. I love both of them to death, and I’m so happy for them and their happily ever after.

Now, because pictures are way better than words… here are just a few shots from the night before (and our girlie sleepover) and the big day.

The bride-to-be totally cool, calm, and collection the night before. Testing out her “honey-do” whistle.

Hanging out the night before. Lots of candy and conversation all around.

Doing Ashley’s nails… I wish I had remembered to take pictures of her nails.

Again, total concentration.  Trying to walk slowly, and not mess up the flower pedals on the aisle.

As you can see it was a beautiful day with beautiful people, and I could not be happier for Shawn and Ashley. They are by far the sweetest couple I’ve ever know, and they’ve been through so much in the time they’ve been together. I love both of them so much, and I couldn’t be happier to have been part of their special day together. <3
