On July 25 of this year, I got married to my super rad best friend, Matt! It was such a fun time, on top of the ridge that overlooks our property, surrounded by friends and family on all sides. The weather was perfect, the views were amazing, and we couldn’t have asked for more support from our tribe.
My bridesmaids made sure to keep me calm and make me smell the flowers, since they knew the day would go by too quickly; a champagne brunch also helped! The ceremony was over in a flash, and highlighted with a duet sung by my dad and his wife. It almost triggered the waterworks, but I held strong.
After a few quick toasts, we all fought in line for our friend, The Pitmaster’s amazing prime rib and smoked turkey; another dear friend provided the home brewed, award winning cider. Then, it was time to cut the cake!
Then, what we all really came for — lawn games! We had corn hole, giant jenga, washers, and more. We’re not big dancers, at least not in public, but we always love a good game out in the lawn. Our talented musician friends provided a backdrop of lively bluegrass music, and it was a great time.
All in all, it was easily the best day of my life. I know…people often say that and it sounds so cheesy. But seriously. For real. From start to finish, I got to see all of the most amazing people in my life, from all over the country, who have all contributed to who I am today. It was the best time. Oh, and one more thing. Best. Shoes. Ever!
