Gina + Wesley // St Louis Engagement (Part 1)



In honor of my best friend getting married in LESS THAN TWO WEEKS, I thought I'd share more from their engagement session <3

 

You see, I met Gina when I was 4 years old. She was that little neighbor girl whose backyard touched my backyard from around the corner; and she is one of the most meaningful friends because we have lived life with each other. She saw me through every stage and trial of life, just as I did with her.

I can't even begin to count the late night talks that starting with tears and ended with laughter.

The cinnamon rolls (2 and a half each to be exact), the chocolate milk and the occasional donut for breakfast. 

The lemonade stands on the constitution trail and setting the sprinkler under the trampoline thinking we were the smartest kids on earth.

All of the games we made up, talks about what we wanted to be when we grew up.

How we promised to never wear makeup or the color pink and to be tomboys for the rest of our lives... which obviously didn't happen ;)

 

And then one day we grew up. We didn't get to see each other nearly as often, but when we did get together everything always picked up right where we left off. I think that that is one of the most beautiful parts of being friends with someone for nearly 20 years. They know that life happens; they understand not being able to talk daily. And even when you guys disagree or have an argument-- you know they will still be by your side because you've been through way too much together. Relationships are hard and can be messy. But when you put the time and energy into restoring it, I promise you that it is so worth it. <3

 

...and now I'm tearing up!

 

Gina and Wes, I am so flipping excited for you two. You guys truly were made for each other and I can't wait to stand up there and witness as you guys commit forever to one another.

It is going to be the most beautiful of days!

 

 

And because I just can't say it enough--I love you both SO MUCH!
