If you had asked us nine years ago if we thought we’d all still be friends, let alone CLOSE friends who end up singing so many rounds of “the wheels on the bus” in the car to calm crying babies, I don’t know if we would have said “yes!”
But here we are, nine years later. And we owe it all to the dance team at UMF. It’s how we all ended up meeting, and it truly did change our lives forever! Now that we’ve been out of college for five years now (holy smokes!) our friendship has changed a little bit. We all live in different places, so we don’t see each other as much as we’d like. But man, when we do it’s like NO time has passed! We are always there for each other and even have a secret FB group so that we can all easily stay in touch!
These girls. I honestly don’t know what my life would be like without them. They’ve been through it all with me. They’ve supported me, encouraged me, cried with me, and been there just when I needed someone to listen. We’ve celebrated babies, engagements, weddings, buying homes, new jobs, and everything in between.
My gosh. It’s just such a special friendship and I am so damn grateful for it!
This past weekend we all traveled to Diamond Hill Vineyard to celebrate Katie for her tea party themed bridal shower! It was such a beautiful time! Everything was stunning and so well put together and just downright FUN!
Here are some of my favorite photos from the day! I was just there as a guest, but I can’t not bring my camera with me when my girls are involved! I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in the fall! It’s going to be so dreamy!
BRILLIANT idea! Having the guests address their own envelopes for thank-yous!
I love that all of the tea cups and accessories belonged to Katie’s family. It was so sweet and sentimental and was really really special for her to have these there!
Using an apron as a guest book instead, so sweet! I loved all the messages people wrote!
Our sweet Susanna is expecting her first baby in July! So crazy that in the span of a year and half, THREE of us will have given birth!
I love these girls with all of my heart!
Chelsea did an incredible job putting the shower together!
One of the games was to make a dress out of toilet paper for one person at your table. We chose Callie. I know it’s unfair, because she’s the cutest thing there, but it was so fun! Her first wedding dress!
Trey’s not so little anymore 🙁 But oh man, those beautiful brown eyes! Just like his mama!
Callie’s first wedding dress 😀
A day with these souls was just what I needed!
Katie has ALWAYS had awesome style!!
