Melissa & Josh || Abernethy Center Wedding - pallasphotos


The sweetest girl that I know got married!!!

I refrained from giving a toast at Melissa and Josh's wedding (knowing that the toasting line was already crazy long) and now I have an opportunity to give a toast in a different way. I want to start by saying thank you so much to my second shooters who took the lead role on this wedding so that I could stand in the bridal party. #EpicBridalPartyFun But most importantly I want to say thank you to Melissa and Josh.

To Melissa, in the years when we first knew each other I would say hi to you in passing as you and my sister went to hang out. I used to think of you not as my friend, but as "my sister's friend." If anyone had said that I would have been in your wedding party I honestly would not have believed them. But as time went on we got to know each other; first through our jogs and then through road trips, camping, and adventuring together. I came to realize that I was a true idiot for not getting to know you better sooner. You are the type of friend that no matter what you will always be there with kindness and an open heart. I want to thank you for all of the friendship and all of the fun times!!! I am so happy that we took the time to become friends and that I got to stand by your side on this special day. I am so excited that going forward I know that the fun will continue in a different stage of our life.

To Josh thank you for seeing my dear friend in the same light that I do (and then some)! You not only acknowledge her beauty and unbelievably caring personality, but you also for treat her with the same grace. Awesomeness! Thank you for being a totally fun, positive, hard working and all around rad individual!! I am so happy that she found her other half in you and I cannot wait for your future together.

Cheers!
