..it was wedding weekend!
I absolutely ADORE going to weddings. I love getting to dress up in something nice, go see 2 people profess their love for one another (and possibly shed a few tears, oops!) and then have a bad ass party afterwards. :)
Our BFFs, Chriz (Chris & Liz) got married this past weekend. It was a gorgeous ceremony, a beautiful reception and the food, music and company were amazing as always with this group.
A little tidbit about myself, if you will, I ALWAYS get emotional at weddings. Even for people I barely know. But these guys? I know. Chris is like a brother to me, and Liz and I have grown close the past couple of years. Going to a wedding when your close to the couple getting married makes it much more emotional. I felt a tug at my heartstrings all night long.
When I saw her coming down the aisle in her dress with her father, it took my breath away.
Then, when I looked at Chris, he had just turned his head to see her coming down the aisle. And the smile that spread across his face and seeing him mouth "I love you" to his bride made me very teary eyed.
Then when they read their own vows they'd written, it was all over for me then. I was a blubbering mess. I love it though. I wouldn't have it any other way. I love how emotional I get at witnessing my friends in love.
Once it was made official that they were now husband and wife, we were off to the reception for a long night of FUN with awesome friends. Me and Fish hanging out waiting to get fed! haha. Love this girl
Once the bridal parties made their grand entrance into the reception we were all ready to eat. Well, I knew that we had to get a picture with Chriz before they get sucked into doing other wedding duties that I have no idea about.
This picture turned out SO well I thought. I'm going to get it framed for our place and for theirs. I love it! BFFs :) Love them!
After dinner, the cake was cut (which was delicious by the way!) so I snapped a few pictures of that for them.
Up next was the toasts. I was excited to hear what Nate had to say. He could've gone with embarrassing drunken stories or sweet and sappy. He did such an amazing job. It was so sweet.
Then I got a wonderful picture of the sweet brothers. I love this one, and I'm going to frame it nicely as a gift for both of them.
So Chriz, thank you SOO much for letting us join you on your special day. It was beautiful and such a fun time. We're blessed to know you both and can't wait to hear all about your honeymoon when you come back! Love you!
