my best friends wedding

miss. jenny rebekah pate got married this past friday to her sweetheart kyle.

oh. my. goodness.

it was an incredible day.

jenny and i met when we were reebok-wearing, jump-rope sporting, novel-writing second graders. i had just moved to provo from tempe, arizona and jenny and i instantly became bff's. {after a little bit of hatred from other girls...} and basically from the second we met, we were inseparable throughout all of elementary school. that continued on into middle school, and high school. and looking back, i realize how rare it is that two girls stay friends for such a looooong amount of time. {seeing how during the growing up years there are so many fights that girls can get into...} we went our separate ways after graduating from THS but a few summers later we found ourselves in a huge adventure together down in lake powell. we were roomies and it was probably one of the craziest, funnest, {i know thats not really a word...} most laid back times either of us have ever had. we met some very interesting people from all over the globe and got amazing at our wakeboarding skills. hah! but it was definitely a summer that neither of us will ever forget. i didn't mean for this to turn into a history book but to say it simply:
she is my "kindred spirit" and i love her so much.

anyways! her wedding was absolutely wonderful and i am so glad that i was able to make the trek back up to provo for her wedding. the ceremony was beautiful, the bride + groom looked completely stunning, the food was great, and i had some much needed catch up time with my other bff, b.da.bomb!

i didn't get many pictures taken with my camera, because when brittany is around, she is the queen at snapping them! but here are a few from the temple...and a few more i stole from britt :)

{me, the beautiful bride and b.da.bomb + jenny and her seven siblings!}

{the temple was gorgeous!! + jenny was ADORABLE during the luncheon!}

{enjoying the festivities...and all of the delicious food + the bride and groom leaving in their surprise LIMO!!}

jenny + kyle: we are so excited for you guys! congrats on the big day...and invite us over whenever you feel the need! xoxo.
