As I mentioned in my previous post, this past weekend Luke and I were in Toledo, OH for my best friend Julia’s wedding. Julia and I met in high school, lived together in college and have kept in touch post-college. She’s been there with me through thick and thin, and knows me better than any other friend.
Julia’s wedding was absolutely beautiful. It was a perfect day- 75 without a cloud in the sky. All us bridesmaids met at Julia’s house around 11am and after some bagels (gotta load up on those carbs!) and mimosas, we helped Julia slip into her beautiful trumpet-style dress.
I had arranged ahead of time with the bridesmaids to get her small presents to complete the “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” saying, which I think she really liked. I was in charge of the “something blue” and got her a hanky embroidered in blue with her initial and the date.
After some pictures, we all headed over in a limo to Corpus Christie church in Toledo, which is a modern building with a lot of tall windows to let in all that sunlight. Her mom had arranged for a four person string quartet to play Pachelbel’s Canon as the bridesmaids walked down the aisle (I’ll never get sick of hearing that georgous song!).
Then Julia appeared with her dad and the trumpets began…
Julia’s wedding is to be continued as I was a real dum dum and forgot to get my camera battery out of its charger. Grrr.
Since I don’t have any pictures of my own to share, I’m going to wait until some good ones pop up on Facebook. You will want to see the pictures, trust me! Words alone wouldn’t do justice the beauty of her recpetion.
PS- congratulations Julia and Jake! Your wedding was amazing and you make a wonderful couple.
