This weekend has been a very fun and busy one. It started with Bryan's birthday party on Friday night. We kind of waited until the last minute to do all the preparations, so we were busy ALL day getting ready for it. But once all of our friends came over, the stress vanished. Maybe I didn't get everything done, but all I wanted was to have friends over to celebrate Bryan's birthday and to eat some really good food. All of these things were accomplished. Hooray!
Unfortunately, I was having so much fun talking and eating that I completely neglected to pick up my camera at all. So I have no pictures! If you were at the party, and have some to share, please let me know! I'd love to see them and share them!
Yesterday (Saturday), I was fortunate enough to attend ANOTHER celebration!! This time- a wedding! And I didn't forget to take pictures of that! Which is good, because I was the photographer.
Who got married? My friends Erica and Tom. Erica and I met a few years ago working at the Cupcakery together. Sarcasm and dry humor brought us together as friends. That and her Bill Cosby impression.
She and Tom have been together for quite some time and tied the knot yesterday in the most beautiful ceremony. It was held on top of a hill in Alton, Illinois at a gazebo that overlooks the Missippi River. It was a BEAUTIFUL fall day complete with a slight breeze and leaves falling everywhere.
The bride wore a thrifted vintage gown, emerald jewelry and roses in her hair. So glamorous and so like her!
Here is one of my favorite shots from the day. They are such a great couple, and totally meant for each other.
Erica and Tom, congratulations and thanks so much for having me there to celebrate this beautiful day in your life together! There are MANY more pictures to come, but I don't want to give too much away!
