This wedding was such a deeply personal experience for me on every level.  The bride, Ashley and I have been friends since we were 14 years old.  I can still remember the first time I was invited over to her parents house, and in Ashley fashion – we did a photoshoot.  Years later, she would […]

September 18, 2021 It feels just like yesterday, meeting Jenna at sorority recruitment during our freshman year of college and our little 18-year-old selves “preffing” the same house. Fate took a different turn, and we didn’t follow each other into the same house, but we remained good friends over the years.  My favorite memory of Jenna was sneaking […]
