My best friend is getting married! AHHH! 3 years ago I met Kendra through a mutual friend. We ended up sitting next to each other in choir, and we became friends. This was the semester I was considering changing my major to music. Kendra was there for me and answered my (many) questions on how to be a music major! After the major change, the next semester we wound up in nearly all the same classes, and our friend group was formed! At Christmas of that year, Kendra had 2 roommates move out and was praying she'd be able to find people to move in. At the same time, I was praying I'd find a place to live in Clarksville because I was commuting and it was really taking its toll on me mentally and physically! Kendra texted me on Christmas break and said "I know it's a long shot, but if you happen to want to move in, we really need another roommate." I texted back "YES" and basically the rest is history! That was 2 years ago, and we've been through it all.
One of the highlights of our friendship was being in on Kendra's proposal! Kendra and Billy were already together when we became friends, so I didn't get to hear about their first dates or stay up late giggling and deciphering the meaning behind text messages, but I really love Kendra and Billy together. They've grown so much together, both just as people and in their faith.
A week after the proposal, Kendra asked me to be her maid of honor! After 4 years of weddings, I am so ready to be the maid of honor! Originally Kendra thought the few photos we took at her proposal were enough, but I told her she had to have an engagement session. She later said she was glad I made her take more photos! These pictures are some of my favorites ever. It's always super special when you're photographing someone you love so much, but they also had perfect outfits and we had great weather and the peak of the fall leaves. I am so excited for their wedding, and I am excited about how we're doing the photography! My 2nd shooter, Carly, is going to be shooting as 1st shooter all day except for any moments I'm not in, like bride and groom portraits! I am a self-proclaimed control freak, so knowing I'll be able to photograph some details and some portraits helps me rest easy. ;) So finally, go look at their pictures! Leave a comment and tell Kendra and Billy how gorgeous they are!
Favorite. Maybe ever.
The chin grab always makes me giddy!
Kendra's ring is perfect. Exactly what she wanted. Perfectly sparkly on her hand. In love.
