another Colville wedding...catching up!

A girlfriend of mine that I went to pre-school on through high school with in Colville got married a few weeks ago. It was something that I knew I needed to go home for and I am so glad that I was able to. I saw many friends that I grew up with and met their significant others, wives/husbands and even a few kiddos. It is so fun to see how everyone is growing up! Ryan couldn't go with me so I was bummed that he didn't get to meet some of my old friends, not to mention I was minus a dance partner :( but luckily he has met most of them by now!

BrieAnne and Josh have a sweet story. They have known each other since they were little kids because Josh and her brother, Brent, are best friends. She always ran around with those older boys growing up, but we would never have imagined they would end up together...after all Josh was one of the gross boys that was always playing tricks on us girls, and to them BrieAnne fit right in as one of the guys :) Then, I think it was our sophomore year of college, things changed and they started to realize that they had grown up and actually enjoyed spending time together...Josh wasn't quite so annoying to her anymore and Josh noticed that BrieAnne had turned into quite the lady :) To say the least, it wasn't hard for them to fall in love because they already knew everything about each other. My favorite part of the whole story is that when they told their families that they were dating after all this time, BrieAnne's dad said..."Now don't go rushing into anything, you've only known each other for about 14 years." And they were married a few short years later....

During the ceremony they poured soil and water into their "Unity Tree" that they are going to plant at their new home...I loved this - such a cute idea.
Me & Mal...my oldest friend from home - I think her wedding will be next! Singing karaoke with the all the girls...I think we sang almost every female country song we could think of. Just when we would take a break, they would get every girl back up there! It was fun!Me and Kelly Brown. Another friend I went through 12 years of school with! Ry and I went to Kelly and Leia's wedding last summer in Seattle. They were married a few weeks after Ry and I in August. Me & the Bride. It was a 40's themed wedding and they totally pulled off a fun garden party. The wedding was in a secluded meadow by a creek and a really cool old log cabin. They played old music and all of the dresses and decorations fit the theme. She used rainbow colors...the bridesmaids each wore a different color - red, purple, yellow and orange. The also had skittles on each of the tables...it fit perfectly and I think I ate our whole bowl...or to be honest, maybe just the red ones - a bad habit of mine :) We always have so much fun spending time with these two. Leia and I are both Mrs.Brown! We always take a "Mrs. Brown" picture together every time we hang out. Good times had by all.

quote I love...believe...

"Alice laughed. 'There's no use trying,' she said. 'One can't believe impossible things.' 'I daresay you haven't had much practice,' said the Queen. 'When I was your age, I always did it half an hour a day. Why, sometimes, I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.'"
- Lewis Carroll, Alice In Wonderland
