Wedding Bells

 My senior year of college, I lived with five other girls. 3 of us were cheerleaders, 3 of us were on the dance team, 3 of us had the same name, and we ALL loved weddings. Our apartment overlooked the chapel on campus and every Saturday when we heard those bells ring, we would all sprint to the windows and peer through the glass trying to take in every detail in sight. We analyzed the bride's dress, flowers, bridesmaid dresses, hair, color scheme... we were obsessed.



(We were even a wedding party for Halloween that year... it took a little convincing for the boys to agree to dress up as groomsmen, but we were adorable.)


Tomorrow, the girl with whom I shared a bedroom, a name, and a cheerleading team is walking down the aisle in that very chapel on campus that we admired so many years ago. Sending big congratulations hugs to the Mr. & Mrs. to be!

PS: the dress, the flowers, the colors, and the bridesmaid dresses will be just lovely.

How precious! I lived in a house with 6 other ladies in college, so I def. know what you mean by "analyzing wedding talk". Hope you have a great weekend at the wedding.

I love weddings too, other than the fact that every wedding I go to, I think, "Why didn't I do that?" to everything I see! Ha ha...
