My Best Friend’s Wedding

Where do I even begin?
This wedding was unlike any wedding I have ever been a part of for so many reasons.
So special and close to my heart. It was also my first time as both photographer and bridesmaid (I couldn’t have done it without my other half John and the amazing Sarah) 🙂
I met Aubrey in 2006 on the first day of an art class our freshman year of college. I was immediately drawn to her – her style, beauty, casual coolness, confidence, talent, and sense of humor made me realize someone had been missing from my life all of these years. Our best friendship happened so easily and quickly and I have a hard time remembering what my life was like before I knew her (probably the most boring and lonely, if I’m being honest). Her friendship is such a gift to me. She is half of my heart and I can’t even imagine going a day without talking to her. We have shared over eleven years of sleepovers where we stay up way too late talking, laughing until we cry, crying until we laugh, secrets, support, embarrassing stories, embarrassing boyfriends, big life events, and every little thing in between (maybe even a sister-like fight or two) 😉
I love her so much it honestly hurts. I am so unbelievably proud of her and the incredible person she is. I am honored to be her best friend. I truly do not feel worthy.
When I first met Rob, I was hesitant that he was really as amazing as Aubrey had told me he was (no offense Aubs, ily)…. But right away I knew she was right. Rob was the one. He was sweet and funny and smart and most importantly, he loved and cherished my best friend and treated her with respect and genuine kindness. He is so loving and encouraging to her. He is also so talented and hilarious and just such a light to be around. I can’t imagine any two people being more perfect together. You two compliment each other beautifully and it’s hard for me not to think you were made especially for the other. You are the most amazing couple and I can’t wait to see all the adventures life takes you on (hopefully one of them will be a house in the same neighborhood as me one day).
Aubrey and Rob’s wedding was an absolute dream day. They got married in the beautiful mountains of Vermont.
Aubrey wore a floral dress with her own custom watercolor design.
She painted the programs, the plate chargers, the tags, the banner, and everything else you see that’s so carefully and beautifully designed. She hollowed out an antique book and filled it with beautiful handmade paper for their guest book. We thrifted candle sticks lace tablecloths and her talented brother made the signs and beautiful wooden candle holders on the table. Every detail was perfect in every way.
Aubrey and Rob exchanged their vows in the middle of the forest where I don’t think a dry eye existed.
We ate an amazing dinner in a beautiful greenhouse with the most stunning views you’ve ever seen and danced the night away under a sky full of stars.
I’m pretty sure everyone cried as loved ones shared their own stories of how amazing these two souls are and just how wonderful and beautiful it is that they found each other.
Rob’s incredible Icelandic family sang songs to the newlyweds and even brought along song sheets so everyone could join in. The entire night was filled with so much love, laughter, and dancing that my face and feet still hurt 😉
Robrey, you guys are my favorite. Your day was beyond amazing and I can’t imagine anything more perfect for two people who couldn’t be more perfect for each other. I love you both more than words can say. I wish you both all the happiness in the whole world <3
