We spent last weekend in West Virginia for Courtney & Tom’s amazing wedding. It was exactly what I think we all needed and will go down in the books as one of the best of all time.
And when I say we, I don’t mean just the husband and I. The best thing about my best friends is that three years after graduation, after the loss of one of our own, several address changes, one international move, the subsequent return, and now two weddings, we’re still very much a we. We still refer to each other as my roommates. Not my old roommates, not my college roommates, just my roommates.
And personally, I hope that never changes.
Everything about the wedding and reception was absolute perfection.
I mean, go ahead. Try to tell me that you have ever seen a more beautiful bride. Yeah, I didn’t think so.
The rest of us clean up pretty well, too.
But then we do things like this, and any credibility we’d earned, goes right out the window.
The husband and I even managed to take a somewhat respectable photo.
Brittany tried to one-up me with my own man, but Chad and his background creeping saved me.
Of course, we danced our asses off.
And sang a whole lot of Gaga.
Kimmy did things like that.
And Brittany made faces like this.
Essentially, we may have fancied ourselves up with make up, dresses, high heals, suits, and ties, but we were still exactly the same as we’ve always been. We were silly, happy, drunk, and completely, head over heals in love with each other.
These are the kind of friends that save you from yourself. The kind that last a lifetime and that are always at the core of your heart.
These are the people who remind me of how infinitely lucky I am.
Congratulations Tom & Courtney! Thank you for a beautiful day and a crazy night. Well done, friends.
