in may 2010, jake took colby for a horseback ride in north scottsdale and popped the question with a sparkly ring. i was so honored that jake chose to include me and danny in such an important weekend in their lives. after she said yes, the four of us celebrated all weekend – it’s one i’ll never forget.
for the past fifteen months i’ve been by colbs’ side as she venue hunted, researched flowers, looked for the perfect wedding and bridesmaid dresses, DIY’d until our backs hurt, poured over wedding blogs, laughed at an invitation oops, kept Michaels and SAS Fabrics in business and we’ve talked every.single.day about how wonderful october 1, 2011 is going to be.
well, the time has finally come! we’re flying to san diego today for colby and jake’s wedding weekend. the weather forecast looks perfect and there’s no doubt it’s going to gorgeous and an absolute blast.
i love wedding weekends. i mostly can’t wait to spend all saturday with colbs and the girls getting ready for the big day. lisa working on the flowers, fun music in the background, ashton pouring lots of mimosas, donna doing our hair, tiffany cracking us up, and all the girls ooing and awwwing over the beautiful bride as she gets gussied up and slips into her wedding dress. i’m lucky enough to know what that feeling is like, so i can’t wait for colbs to experience it. the excitement and nerves all mixed into one. knowing that pretty much everyone you love is in one place for the first – and perhaps – the last time… and they’re all there for you.
family, friends and a whole lotta love.
