Blue Floral

I love wedding season. LOVE. What's better than dressing up, drinking wine, eating cake, and dancing all night?! I have always been obsessed with weddings (more-so than most 20-something girls), but it has only recently occurred to me that what I love most about them (even more than the unlimited wine) is the fact that the most important reason we all attend them in the first place is to celebrate two people who are madly in love. 

Don't get me wrong, I love a designer gown and killer bouquet as much as the next gal, but what I look forward to most about my own (currently hypothetical) wedding is the promise to share the many years following the "big day." I don't just want a fiance or a groom, I want a partner. I want someone to appreciate me (flaws and mistakes along with strengths and accomplishments), and someone to make me laugh and smile every single day. I know, I know, marriage is not a fairytale. Relationships are hard work and they sometimes devastatingly end. But I want someone who is willing to stand by me through all of those highs and lows, someone who pushes me to be a better person, and someone who can share in the happiness that life can bring. That is what I wish for all of my beautiful bride and groom friends, and what I wish for the person who taught me about love in the first place. 

I am lucky enough to be attending all of these weddings with an amazing guy and maybe, one day, my friends will be wishing the same blessings to me. 

The sun sneaked behind a cloud right before we went outside to snap a few pics, but I had an absolute blast in this gorgeous skirt (even after getting caught in the rain). Congratulations to Nick and Nancy! And thanks, Jon Ryan, for being a good sport and humoring me by playing photographer.
