jenna and brett...

What a wonderful post to break my silence with...I have been busy greeting 2009 and i haven't posted in forever...but this weekend was more than worthy of a few snaps! One of my beautiful best friends from college got married in San Antonio, Texas. We had the privelege all through college of meeting new people and looking like huge nerds when we said, "Hi I'm Jenna"..."and I'm also Jenna." I always wonder if people with the same name are kind of cut from the same cloth...like if all Jennas have a few little crazy hairs in their head that make them dance and laugh a little more than normal people and over-analyze just a bit...I haven't reached a conclusion yet but I do know that there are tons of ways that Jenna is a million times the woman I will ever be!

She is so faithful to the Lord and His plans in her life. She prays with such fervor and is a big picture kind of girl. The little things that don't always work out right never detour her from the goal. I love her heart so much--free spirited with compassion busting at the seams. This wedding had so much love at it...watching Jenna and her dad throughout the weekend could have made a stone tear up a little. Her family was so in it. They knew this day was about the Lord and the gifts he has given all of us and they were so calm and collected because of it. Brett and Jenna's relationship has been a testimony of committment, faithfulness, and deep roots. I love you guys a million...

I could write forever but here are some photos I snapped in between bridesmaid duties...

this was in Jenna's room...getting the dress on. Beautiful natural light from that window...and beautiful bride!

molly--the world's sweetest puppy girl. i am obsessed with molly and i'm not kidding. she had her little wedding day bow on her head!

this is one of jenna's beautiful sisters. we got to wear some unbelievable dresses that were hand-sewn and then these fun "stoles" to boot. I just learned that word--it means over the shoulder fur rectangle. then everyone used a different antique broach to seal the deal...

jenna and her sisters...are they not gorgeous? that blob in the right corner is erin! she photographed the whole wedding with her team of 5 photographers! they were wonderful! she will probably post amazing photos on her site soon...so go check it out: http://eephotography.squarespace.com/

this was no traditional father/daughter dance...the song was brown eyed girl and there was choreography!!
