Hello friends! I know it has been pretty quiet over here on my little slice of the internet lately but that is changing pretty soon! I will be catching up on nearly 9 months worth of blogs! HOLY COW right??
As I sit here in the Chicago Midway Airport waiting for my flight after a fast paced and emotion filled weekend, I am left thinking about my time here as I watched my life-long best friend marry the man that will be her new life-long best friend.
My emotions and thoughts are going in a hundred different directions as I remember the events that brought Marcy and I together, the joys and struggles we have faced together throughout our lives, and watching her embracing her new found life with Anton.

I had the pleasure of meeting Hannah a little over a year ago when she was a bridesmaid in a wedding I was shooting. She reached out to me a few months later and we began planning for her very own wedding! Some things that really stood out to me about Hannah and Josh's wedding day was that first and foremost- their friends are family. I work a lot of weddings and see a lot of 'friends' standing beside the bride and groom but often times they don't seem to be a close, tight knit group. That is the exact opposite of this crew! In fact, many of these folks were also bridesmaids in groomsmen in the wedding that I met Hannah at!
