Not sure much could top this one.

I have been blessed with an abundance of ah-ma-zing friends.

From every phase of life.

I love them all.

But I am especially blessed to have a pseudo-sis. We've been besties since kindergarten.

And I was HONORED to be in her wedding a few weeks ago.

***If you decide to stop reading at any point, you MUST at least visit my bestie's photographer's blog featuring her wedding.

Unfortunately, I was incredibly sick with a sinus infection. And I was pretty darn bummed about it. But it truly didn't take away from the breathtaking event.

There is absolutely no way for me to put into words the fabulousness of this shin-dig. Wouldn't even know where to begin. But I will highlight a few things from the unforgettable weekend:

*Events took place from the moment my plane touched down: Boots N' BBQ on Broadway to welcome out of town guests, a swanky bridesmaid luncheon, manis and pedis with the girls, rehearsal dinner, wedding.

*Took place on a plantation in Nashville, TN. I'm sure pics of her wedding will be in Southern Bride magazine. Everything was absolutely picture perfect.

*Bestie and her (now) hubby wrote their own vows. They've done long distance their entire relationship, are moving to Uganda, and their marriage is completely and totally dedicated to the Lord. Beautiful!

*They had food station "favorites". He started a Mexican restaurant in Africa, so they had a Mexi station with mini margaritas. She LOVES pizza, so they had mini pizzas paired with beer flights. And since the wedding was in Nashville, they had gourmet southern food: bbq and mac n' cheese.

*Gabe was pretty obsessed with the Whisky-Tasting station.

*The bridal party entered the reception with a choreographed African dance routine. Then, the groomsmen surprised the bride and groom with their own choreographed routine. I'm not kidding when I say it was INCREDIBLE and one of the most hilarious/entertaining things you've ever seen in your life.

*One of the most gorgeous brides I've ever seen in my life. And probably the happiest too!

And because I didn't get ANY snapshots of the unbelievable details, you HAVE to check out her photog's blog. Or just check out any bridal magazine in the upcoming months. I'm sure it will be featured. ;)
