MY SISSY GOT MAAAARRRRRIED! okay, okay, so it was like 2 months ago… aaaand i’m just now blogging it. BUT! good news, internet, it also happens to be Laura’s birthday today so it seemed right to blog it today as a surprise (okay, again, it’s almost midnight but technically it’s still her bday).

now, on to the details of the big day. being the matron-of-honor i obviously didn’t take the getting ready pictures/wedding party/family/ceremony/etc. and that’s where my fab friend, Lori, stepped in. her friendship means so very much to me. i really can’t put into words the crazyhugegiant blessing she is to me and was even more so on this particular day. i am ever so grateful to her for so beautifully documenting the parts of Laura + Nick’s wedding that i couldn’t, due to being in the wedding. anyway, these pictures (outside of the ceremony pictures) are my version of the day. and what a beautiful day it was.

side note/worth mentioning:  Demon Waffle played all the music for the ceremony and it was super rad. some seriously awesome guys.

below are a few portraits of dear friends+family that i snagged throughout the evening. these people are killer. blessed to know them.
