Two weekends ago, I had the great pleasure of being both a bridesmaid and the photographer at my best friend’s wedding. I’ve known Aimee for 23 years, and I love her like a sister. Over the years, we have spent countless days together, playing board games, splashing in the pool, working on school projects...we went to summer camp together when we were kids, and were roommates our freshman year of college. It was such an honor to stand up beside her on the last Saturday of August and watch her exchange vows with one of the sweetest men I have ever met.
Aimee and Jon’s wedding was beautiful. The weather was perfect (especially lucky, considering that Hurricane Irene hit the state hard the following day), the setting was charming, and the bride was gorgeous. Aimee and Jon know a lot of talented people, and as a result the wedding was not only beautiful but also full of personality, and obviously created with a lot of love. Friends were involved in the creation of floral arrangements, the cake baking, dj-ing, tent decoration, application of make-up and hair styling, and photography. Aimee’s mother has a nice large back yard with a pond that created a lovely backdrop for the ceremony, and after the dancing died down and the music stopped, a bonfire was lit for the guests to relax around. The day was a joy to be a part of, and I am so happy for Aimee and Jon. I hope they enjoy many, many years of happiness together. Best wishes and love to both.
