i was in nashville last wednesday/thursday for work, arriving back in the CLE with just enough time to head to pittsburgh bright and early friday morning for teen's wedding weekend.
my life is pretty busy these days, but my life is also pretty damn awesome so you're not going to hear many complaints from me.
now, back to teen and daryl's wedding!!!!
there's no one like teen (her friends call her the boss for a reason), and when i met teen on our freshman year move in day at UD little did i know what an important part of my life she would still be 12 (!) years later.
it appears as if she's stuck with me for life...
and now daryl is too - MWAHAHAHA.
weddings are emotional for me as it is, but when it's one of your best friends let's just say i couldn't control the tears falling from my eyes multiple times throughout the day.
when i saw her with her hair done.
when i saw her with her dress on for the first time.
when i saw her getting nervous.
when i saw her getting excited.
when i saw her walking down the aisle with her father.
when i saw her give her vows.
when i saw her dance with her father.
when i ....
you get the point - i was just so happy for her!
let's see some pictures shall we?
post rehearsal dinner drink on atria's patio - amie, bri, teen, daryl, mike, me, and diva
teen, the beautiful bride in the limo bus "going to the chapel", which her maids sang to her multiple times throughout the day.
this picture makes me laugh a lot, teen is the epitome of a bride in this picture. lara is feeding her while amie and diva are bustling her trane.
teen surprised daryl (a major motorcycle racing enthusiast) with an ice sculpture/luge at the reception. vroom vroom.
please note two things in this picture: that you can now see our legs and the piece of black fabric in teen's hand. that piece of fabric would be the bottom of my bridesmaid dress because our dress was DETACHABLE! yes, detachable. because of this we obviously had to take our bottoms off at some point in the evening. sexy.
as mentioned before teen was my college roommate, and so was everyone else in this pic (except for daryl) at some point. d-ray, me, teen, seifs and beth all lived at 520 lowes for our junior and senior year and it was some of the best times of our lives. even diva lived at 520 for a summer.
essentially we've all grown up together, became adults together... well, maybe became adult-ish together.
makes me all warm and fuzzy inside - good times this weekend, good times.
congrats again teen and daryl, love you both!
