that being said, a girl's gotta pick her bridesmaids. and after nailing down quite a few of the major details, i got around to visiting rifle paper co., scooped up some cards, sat down with patrick and settled on our wedding party.
christine fitzpatrick - matron of honor
and becky hoerr
...ladies: i love you, i love our memories, our stories, and the special bond i feel with each of you. whether it was gently encouraging me to go on a second date with him ("i don't know loo, it kind of sounds like you like him!") or feeling comfortable enough to scream "NUGGET!" when you were first introduced; patrick and i are so grateful for the love and support you have given us over the last few years. and i want each of you to know that as i walk down the aisle to marry him, my journey to him wouldn't have been the same without each of you. so from the bottom of my extremely full heart, thank you.
and just for good measure, patricio has asked his brothers, my brothers, and our dear friend john (and becky's other half!) to stand beside him.
we are so excited!
and in true aml fashion, the bridesmaid dress was already picked!
