I might be a little bit biased, but we had the best bridal party ever. I mean, my bridesmaids are the most beautiful people I have ever seen and the groomsmen are all so handsome. In addition to taking some killer pictures, each and every member of our bridal party made our day so much more special by standing with Jeremy and me while we said our vows.
These are our closest friends and our family members and I couldn't have imagined our wedding day without any of them. It was perfect. I wouldn't have had it any other way.
Since I have no sisters of my own, I asked my brother to be my maid-of-honor. Even though the men in our bridal party outnumbered the ladies, I'm so glad I was able to give my brother this honor. He did so much to help me get ready for my big day and having him right there next to me meant so much to me. A particularly funny moment was when we had to explain exactly how he had to fix my train for me and that he had to hold my flowers through the ceremony. He was trooper and the best maid-of-honor anyone could ever hope for.
My whole life I have been close with my cousin, Kim (on left in first picture). We've been there for each other during each major milestone in our lives. Even though she's a few years older than me, I have always felt close to her and I have always looked up to her. This year, she was able to stand with me for my wedding, and in October, I'll be the matron of honor in hers.
I remember when I met Catherine (second from left in first picture)when I started high school. We clicked right away. Somehow, we figured out that our parents had all gone to Villanova and that they had graduated in the same year! Clearly, we were meant to be best of friends, and to go to Villanova together ourselves to make our own memories there.
While at Villanova, Catherine and I met Mary (on right in first picture). I honestly cannot imagine life without these two. Even though we are scattered across the country now, I know these girls are there for me no matter what. I'm so happy that they were there for me on my wedding day especially. Between sewing my dress, fixing my hair and makeup, secretly decorating the bridal sweet, and just overall having a good time, my entire bridal party overall wins the award for best in the world. Seriously.
