Congratulations Laura & Quinton

What a day! I am so so so very excited to post these wedding pictures because I took them for one of my very best and the very longest friend I have ever had! I may or may not have told you all this, but there was four of us girls in the nieghborhood that grew up as close friends. Sheena got married first, I followed a few months after, Wendy joined the married club next while Laura headed onto an LDS mission to Australia. When she returned she'd soon announce her engagement to her boyfriend, Quinton Taylor. Now this is a great story of persistence since Quinton has had special feelings for Laura since they met way back in high school, but Laura wasn't as interested in him. Yet we'd arrive home from one event or another and would discover him hanging out with her family... it's a great strategy, I could see the potential. But it wouldn't be until years after graduation that Laura would realize that she too was in love with him. The day she told me I was so shocked, but so excited that this magnificent friend of mine had found something so special. They still followed through on their missions (he went to France) because it was that important to them, and I think that is so wonderful, and now we've come full circle in the story. I was grateful to be asked to be the photographer for their wedding since I would give them the best price (it was my wedding gift to them)!! They are so cute and I am so incredibly happy for them! I wanted to spotlight them and the pictures I took, but it was definitely a chore to find only a few to post... but here they are, my favorite five!

p.s. Today is also my Blogiversary!! Yay for one year of posts!! Click here to go back to the very beginning!
