the wedding planning adventure: part 4

It’s so incredible to watch friends and family rally around in times of need. Makes me feel incredibly blessed and ridiculously undeserving. I don’t know if it’s a “Southern” wedding thing or what, but I’ve noticed that at a lot of weddings I photograph (most of which are in the South) it never fails that there’s a bunch of family and friends helping with each wedding. I love this! As I’m photographing the details of the wedding day prior to the ceremony I often see friends and family running around doing anything and everything to make sure the wedding goes off without a hitch. I often overhear these same lovely people talk about how they remember when the bride or groom were younger and how they can’t believe they’re old enough to get married now. I won’t lie. It melts my heart.

Only one day until my sister marries her Navy boy and moves to Washington, D.C. Can’t hardly believe the day is already here. All the friends and family coming into town! Gonna be a fun time! As I was sending emails to people like crazy a couple days ago making sure everyone knew the time line and when to be where, I started feeling ridiculously blessed by all the people involved in making this wedding a success. One of my favorite friends who also happens to be a crazy, awesome photographer is coming in town to help me photograph Laura’s wedding so that I can still be a Matron of Honor and stand next to my seester during the ceremony. This means the world to me. It really leaves me speechless when I think of the generosity of those who are giving of their time and talents to make this wedding happen. I’m truly grateful beyond words.

Did I mention THE WEDDING is TOMORROW???!!!
