Wedding Time!

In early August, I attended one of my best friend's weddings. Well actually, I was in the wedding. It was a glorious, laid back day and I've never been more relaxed being a bridesmaid. Maybe that comes from experience? This is the fourth wedding I've been in. AND YES, I'm starting to hear the "always a bridesmaid, never a bride!" jokes. Original, people. 

This really is the age that people start to push marriage onto you. Is it possible to marry travel???? I mean, I'll totally commit to that. 

Ahem. Anyway, here are more wedding photos from a fab day. Enjoy...

Rachel, the bride, is on the left. Next to her is her sister Tessa. Deidra and I are on the right and we are Rachel's sisters too...sorority sisters! Sigma Kappa, what?!? 

I'm usually a 'deep in thought' kind of person. 

Rachel and Zach seeing each other for the first time. They met when they were college freshman and have stuck together ever since. Before the "Awwwws" commence, I think a nod of respect is more in order here. We often fantasize relationships to be this fairytale experience, but here is a couple that has learned to stick it out through all the hardships. Respect. 

Obligatory bride & baby photo (not hers, by the way). 

By the way, Rachel's dress was MAGNIFICENT! 50s-inspired and beautifully beaded! 

Rachel, you deserve all the good things! I was overjoyed to be a part of your big, beautiful day. Cheers!
