Nice day for a white wedding...

This past weekend was the wedding of Fawn, one of my friends from high school. She got married at the Park Street Church across from the Boston Common, which I believe is the first place that "My Country 'Tis of Thee" was sung for the first time. Sadly, we didn't sing any patriotic songs, but the ceremony was still beautiful. The reception was at the Commandant's House in Charlestown, and everything was awesome. The tent was gorgeous, the food was delicious, the band was great. Everyone had a good time!

I feel very lucky to be so close to my friends from high school, I feel like not many people hold on to those friendships for very long. Actually, I met two of those friends in 5th grade (when I was 10!). I attribute these friendships to our strong personalities, similar morals, and the comradery that we developed from going to an all-girl, Catholic school. Yes, I wore a uniform. For YEARS. My four years of high school were the best years of my life, and I feel so lucky for that. Its amazing that we're in this phase of our life where we're all getting married, having babies, etc. Especially when I look back not too long ago to a group of girls who were just figuring out who they really are.

As at any function that we are at, there were plenty of cameras around! We all got some great pictures, we probably have about 500 group photos at this point, but they never get old to us!

Brady was a ringbearer, and I snapped this cute shot of him watching the action at the ceremony

Here's me and Erm

Here's me, my parents, and Erm

And last but certainly not least... Melissa (and baby Alex!), me, Fawn, Kelly, and Katey

Congratulations, Fawn and Bjorn!!!
