The bride and I were magically, randomly, matched as roommates freshmen year of college, almost 10 years ago (can that be right?)and I was so excited to stand up next to her on her best day ever.
We left Seattle at 3:30 AM and arrived to town after a lonnng day of traveling and were greeted at the airport by my parents who were also invited to the wedding. After we quickly freshened up we hurried over to the rehearsal dinner and arrived at the same time as the bridal party. While I'd seen several of the girls at the bachelorette weekend back in October, I was so excited to be reunited with the few who couldn't come and whom I hadn't seen since my own wedding almost a year ago. We hugged excitedly and attempted to snap a good group shot (always a challenge) before sitting down to dinner, followed by a sweet slide-show and champagne toasts.
After an entire day spent in the bridal suite, we were all getting a little silly (and sleepy) so we cranked up some Taylor Swift to pump us up before the big walk down the aisle. And then finally it was time. The ceremony was perfect, we cheered when they kissed, and it was so special to see my sweet dear friend marry the love of her life!
And then we headed to the reception! T.J. had spent the day catching up on sleep and enjoying yummy bbq with my folks so I was happy to be reunited with my handsome date. The bride and groom danced to "All I Want for Christmas is You" which I think was just the perfect December wedding song. The band was fantastic and once the floor opened up we danced the night away and savoured the short time I left with my college friends.
All too soon it was time to send off the happy couple with a handful of "snow!" This was definitely the most creative send-off I've ever seen and I am just so over the moon in love with the newlyweds!
