happy day.


My been-friends-forever friend Juli got married last week. She was calm and gorgeous and abundantly happy. I got to be a bridesmaid and wear a sparkly dress and red high heels. (I love her.) A lot of my favorite people were in the wedding party, and there was even cloudless blue sky and strawberries. Basically, an amazing day getting to see Juli and her Scott start a brand-spanking-new life together. Weddings are glorious, guys.

And in between bridesmaid-ing, I got to take a bunch of pictures with a camera that is not my own and which I love ferociously. THANK YOU PETER.




















(these group pictures taken by gorgeous sister-in-law)









I love my siblings. They are beautiful and they are nice. WIN.






































My parents + all their grandchildren. Seven so far! 












































The for-real photographer at work. The photos he took are seriously breathtaking. Gah.




















It was a happy, happy day and now the first of the my-age friends are married and I THINK THAT MEANS WE'RE GROWING UP which is terrifying and exciting and also just a little bit of can-we-go-back-to-being-nine-years-old-and-running-around-outside-all-day-jumping-out-of-apple-trees??

  1. I'm about to experience this, too. My first friend-my-age wedding. It's scary.

    Also, these photos are gorgeous! My favorite is the one of the intertwined hands while they were dancing. It is just so sweet and wonderful.

  10. These are perfect! I love your photography how you capture EVERYTHING all the real life emotions and fun of it. And I know exactly how you feel wanting to go back to apple tree jumping days. Life's terrifyingly exciting. Really love your photography though it inspires me to capture all the little things because those are what we are going to want to remember! Great work!

  20. These are gorgeous! I can enjoy/understand/sympathize with this whole post! I had *several* friends get married last year and weddings are indeed glorious, but it's also scary--we've apparently all grown up when we weren't looking. It's a happy but also very nostalgic time. :)

    I'm so glad I found you through Think Inside the Box! Hop on over to my blog any time--www.makesupmylife.blogspot.com.

  29. Epic. I am a fan of picture heavy posts and these are phenomenal! Also, I found it ironic that the first time I ever visited your blog, the first picture of the first post I read was of red shoes! Coincidence? I think not.
