Last Sunday, my friend Meghan got married. It was an absolutely beautiful day, and it was both the beginning and end of so many things.
It was part of the end of us all being together – all the time. I’ve been best friends with Meghan, Lauren, and Liz for the last 3 years… and even when we don’t live together… we are either next door or just down the street. But now, Meghan lives in Michigan, and soon Lauren will live in Bloomington, and Liz will live in New York. So this was the first step toward that…and I’m not quite sure if I’m ready to let them all go yet. Just because I love them so much.
It was the beginning of Meghan and Sean’s life together. They’ve been together forever, and they’re perfect for each other. It was just so sweet to be able to share their special day with them…because they’ve been together ever since I have been friends with Meghan. They’re great, and I love them both.
It was the beginning of the time when all of our friends will start getting married. While we were waiting to walk down the aisle, I looked out into the crowd and saw so many of our friends and people that we know. This is when I realized that I’m not young anymore…and instead of going to weddings for family and people that we don’t really know, now we will be going to weddings for our friends. It’s just a strange and sort of surreal feeling….but it’s kind of exciting at the same time.
Being a bridesmaid in a wedding the weekend before finals is the perfect way to procrastinate studying…or doing anything productive at all….while having an absolutely great time. When we got back to campus after the wedding it was like we had been in entirely different world for a week… which we had. We got to hang out with great people, be dressed up, and celebrate an awesome day with an amazing couple! Here are a few more photos…
