Not quite a poem but...

The little surprise poem by Cill and Jarly on "my" last post was quite a hilarious surprise. But yes, it is true. Yesterday Jessica got married and was a beautiful bride. It was a crazy beautiful busy wonderful emotional day. The wedding was at the temple first thing in the morning and Jess arrived looking beautiful. After the ceremony was over, she came out in her dress and greeted the rest of her family. It was a typical misty chilly Seattle day but there was a definite energy in our small group of people.

Picture of just the immediate family.

I got to be a bridesmaid with her two sisters Nicole and Alyssa.

These girls are our neighbors at our apartment in Provo. They drove from various parts of
Washington (they're home for Christmas) to come to Jessica's wedding reception.
They are so fun and cute!

The winter themed reception was held at the church and so many people came! There was a hot chocolate bar and lots and lots of treats. Sparkly white trees and Christmas trees lined the walls and Christmas lights created a glowing ceiling. The centerpieces were large vases with candles and Christmas ornaments in them {I unfortunately didn't get pictures of all of this}. They did an amazing job!

Beautiful roommates {and poets ahem}: Carly and Jill
PS. Those shoes were 4 inch platform heels and I was crazy
enough to wear them all day.

Friends from high school who came to wish Jess congrats on her big special day :)
It was such a special day and I'm so glad I was able to be a part of it. Friends and family all helped so much to pull this wedding together and it was amazing to see how willing people were to lend a hand. A part of me wishes I could have just sat and talked with people, but I loved the craziness. I loved being in charge of decorating their car. I liked that people trusted me to take care of certain things. I thought it was hilarious that Kyle's (the husband) best friend caught the garter and I caught the bouquet. But one of my favorite parts of the night were the few minutes I was given with Jessica while she changed and got ready to leave.  I don't even really remember what we talked about but I'll cherish that. I'm so happy for them both and wish them the best :)
