When selecting my bridesmaids for my wedding, I wanted to honor and celebrate the young women in my life who were important to me, who had walked through life with me, and who had helped shaped me into the woman that I am. They were more than close friends in pretty dresses. They were my sisters. God has lead these six women all over the country to chase dreams, build lives, and start families, and even though we are separated by time and distance, I still hold them close to my heart. So you can imagine how excited I was when Patti called to tell me that she and Sheldon were getting married in an intimate, family-only lakeside ceremony, and she wanted me to be there to capture it.
Patti and her family were my second family when I was in high school. In fact, I think spent as much time at their house as I did at my own! I spent the night there so often that I even had my own futon to sleep on. They loved me like one of their own, and I am forever changed and forever grateful for having been welcomed as part of their family. I love you all so much, and I'm so happy for you!
