Ashley Got Married!

Our beautiful bouquets!
Ashley and I have been friends since she was four and I was five, now she's 23 and I'm 24.  That's a long time.  When two girls are friends for that long, it's guaranteed that many, many conversations are had about boys and dating, and eventually men and marriage.  So it's really not an exaggeration to say that Ashley's wedding is something we've been dreaming and talking about for years now, and on Saturday it was finally here!  Minus a little bit of wind that made taking pictures a little challenging, it was a perfect day outside.  Sunny and not a cloud in the sky.  The ceremony was wonderful - sweet, funny, and God-honoring.  And then it was on to the reception.  Ashley and Tim are huge sports fans, so when the bridal party made their entrance they had one of those sport themes playing in the background and we were introduced as the starting line up.  We made kind of a tunnel with the girls on one side and the guys on another, so Ashley and Tim came running in giving high fives like they were on a sports team.  It was great!  Another highlight of the reception was the cake.  It looked like a wedding cake on the outside, but the inside was Funfetti!  I think Ashley has been saying since she was in middle school that she would have a Funfetti wedding cake, and she did!  I don't really know how else to wrap up a day like that except to say that everything was fun and beautiful and I am so glad that I got to be a part of it all!

That's not the greatest picture of me and Ashley.  Well, she looks great, and I look like a big, black, tired blob.  But, I wasn't freaking out about getting pictures because I knew the ones the photographers would get would be amazing!
