It’s About Time!

After 7.5 years of dating (including all of college and most of high school) my two really good friends tied the knot!

The wedding was beautiful and filled with more love than I ever thought possible. I didn’t take pictures during the ceremony itself, but she looked insanely gorgeous. I love seeing my friends so happy!

As I arrived at the reception, I placed my gift to the couple at the already full table. It’s going to take forever to open all of these!

I also signed the guestbook/frame!

While we waited for the couple to arrive, I took a seat with some old friends.

Did I mention that my date to the wedding was my best friend from middle school, who was also my high school homecoming date? Eight years later, Tyler and I show up together.

The bridal party took forever to take pictures. Luckily, there was a candy bar for us to check out:

I munched on a few handfuls of m&m’s while chatting with other guests.

 

Once the couple was announced, it was time for their first dance as husband and wife. It’s amazing to see two people so in love that their joy literally fills a room. That’s Jaime and Matt for you.

Dinner was buffet style, and I was at one of the last tables to get food. They have HUGE families! I had a hodge-podge of everything.

When it was time to cut the cake, there was a big debate: To smash, or not to smash.

Matt is an engineer (like me!) and is very by the rules. He carefully tried to place the cake in her mouth but dropped it on her dress. Ooops.

Jaime is the silly one of the two and had planned all along to shove cake in his face.

The music started playing and everyone jumped up to the dance floor.

I hung back and took some pictures with my old high school gang. I miss these girls!

Next up it was time for the bouquet and garter toss!

Is this bad luck!?

We all headed outside to wish the couple farewell!

Bubbles were everywhere!

Congratulations, Jaime and Matt! May you be as happy forever as you were on your wedding day!

 

They are now on a plane to Hawaii! How awesome is that?!

After the wedding, I drove the two hours back to Orlando. During the drive, I thought to myself how blessed I am to have such awesome friends in my life!
