almost 10 years ago I met one of my best friends at queens university. it was a nutrition class and we had to work on a group project together. after that project study groups formed and a tremendous friendship started. we have been through some ups and downs together with each of us. she was a part of my wedding and I helped her though a rough relationship. we have talked about family issues and have been there through losses. we have each others back. after her failed relationship we would go to dinner and I would ask her about dating. she would say nope and I am never getting married. one day things changed. she came to dinner and talked about bob. the more and more we talked on the phone or went to dinner the more and more she talked about bob. she talked about meeting his family and him meeting hers and she was happy. I was honored to be apart of her wedding to bob 3-15-14.
first we had a bachelorette party at folly beach/Charleston. it was the first time I got to meet the other bridesmaids. it was a blast even if it did rain most of the weekend.
I was able to take a few days off the week of the wedding. on the Thursday before the wedding andy and I went to the farm and helped get some decorating done and hung out with bob and Claire. on Friday we went to the rehearsal and to dinner and I spent the night with Claire and helped her do her flowers. we were up until 330 in the morning but we laughed until we cried and snorted. the day of the wedding we got up and got out hair done and went back to her place and to the farm to finish up the flowers and then it was game time. she was the most beautiful bride and I couldn’t have been happier for her and bob and they both seemed so happy. the wedding ceremony was beautiful and the reception was wonderful. the food was delicious. it was the perfect march day to have a wedding.
for her wedding gift I made her and bob a quilt and used her wedding colors in it.
congrats to my bff Claire and her new husband bob on a beautiful wedding and a wonderful start to a brand new adventure. I love you both!
