There are so many great photos, I don't know which ones to share first . . . so I'm just going to share them all. Here is a flickr slideshow of our photographer friend's, Abu's, photos.
The three girls in purple are my bridesmaids: Ellen, best friend and previous college roommate, have known her since 1997. Kady, former coworker and office mate, very special friend since I moved here in 2003. And, Cindy, my future sister-in-law, she is my husband's brother's girlfriend (maybe they will wed next year!!). :)
The woman dressed in purple but not in a "bridesmaids dress" is also a very special friend of mine. Her name is Corrina. I've known her since 1999, when she became my long-lost big sister. She is also the one who introduced me to Lawrance . . . I probably owe her my firstborn child she's done so much for me.
Corrina got her sister-in-law to come do our hair and make-up. She did an awesome job and also loaned us all the hair stuff and the veil too. She also was the one who brought the bouquets, bouts, and corsages for us. All I did was provide photos of what I was wanting with the directions of "please use purple and no roses" . . . what she brought was better than any of the photos I sent.
