One of my very best friends got married last weekend in Nashville, TN and I DO believe it was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Low-80s, no humidity, barnyard cocktail hour, twinkle lights and hanging mason jars, a band I'm willing to fly in for my own wedding (whenever that may be...), and a beautiful couple in love.
Kristin has been one of my best friends since we were in eighth grade and were cast in "Annie" together at a local community theater. So naturally I was overjoyed when she asked me to be her bridesmaid!! I love her, I absolutely adore her new hubby, and I couldn't think of anything I'd rather be doing on that date, which seemed sooooo far away at the time, than stand with my best friend on the most memorable day of her life.
|I mean, gorgeous.|
I wish I could re-capture every single moment of this gorgeous event for all of you, but unfortunately that is just not possible. So here are a crap-ton of photos from my weekend (some stolen, with permission, from my friends) with my bests and my love in one of the coolest cities EVER. Seriously, Nashville....you rock my country music-lovin' world.
