I have to say:
five years ago
when we were living in Texas,
a trip to Hawaii
for a wedding
would have seemed pretty cool...
But now that we live in England
in the constant cold
and need for layering,
the idea of going to Hawaii
sat in anticipation for me
for months ahead
like a tropical, exotic muse.
With as much of a pedestal as I had it perched on,
the trip had big shoes to fill.
And I won't lie,
it was even better than I could have imagined.
Our friends Tyler & Amber are all-stars.
They're succesful in their jobs
and in friendships
because they are kind and hard-working.
The culmination of their attention to detail
and consideration for those around them
came full circle during their wedding week.
Fun activities were planned,
thoughtful moments were carved out,
and well... their great taste just shone through.
I get a little emotional thinking about
how dear Amber's friendship is to me.
She isn't just a friend I have fun with
a couple of times a year when we see each other.
She's my closest friend in London
and, being expats in a different country,
we share a lot of our lives together.
The moments over the past few years
that she's been a part of are written on my heart forever...
So it was truly an honor to stand by them both
as they committed to sharing their lives together.
Plus, it was so fun having Viola as the flower girl.

A blog post won't do justice to expressing
my love for this couple
or how wondeful they really are...
but the wedding photos?
Well, they'll help give you a glimpse
of what a wonderful day
their Maui wedding was.
have you ever seen a more gorgeous bride?
I honestly haven't.
Amber took my breath away.
Enjoy being a "guest" at
their gorgeous wedding
on the beaches of Wailea in Maui.
