Married - Kelly & Bobby (part II).

After the wedding ceremony, I took some photos outside of the Church with my elementary school friends (including Cara, who came to LA for Easter this year!), and I must made me feel kind of old. I mean, our 9 year old friend Kelly--who's really 27 but I still think of her / us at that age--had just gotten married! But hey, we're all happy and healthy, so I can't really complain. (And after the photo opp, I may or may not have made a pit stop at Wendy's prior heading to the reception...)

^^I really can't get over how happy she looked.
 ^^Above is a photo of my non-blood-yet-may-as-well-be-blood sister and father, of whom I both simply adore.
 ^^See? Sisters. We didn't even coordinate colors on purpose.
^^Friends since 4th grade <3
^^Blurry, but I like how happy they both are :) 
^^Opa! (I had to.)
^^The soft lighting and bokeh make for such romantic photos.
 ^^She went first.
 ^^Accidental, but I love how the focus is on the "A" as he's smashing the cake in her face in the background.
^^I even love the blur here.

Congratulations, again, to the NEWLYWEDS!

Married - Kelly & Bobby (part I).

"My Big Fat Greek Wedding" or "My Best Friend's Wedding" could have been appropriate, alternate titles for this blog. Kelly, one of my very best (and very Greek) friends, got married this past weekend, and I was able to snap some shots of her big day. (Sorry to the real photographer; I still feel kind of bad.)

Kelly, you were radiating beauty inside and out. I've never seen you look more beautiful or more happy in the almost 2 decades that I've known you. I am beyond thrilled for you and Bobby, and I wish you a lifetime of happiness together. Love you both!

^^Typical of girls getting ready
 ^^I love this shot. She looked so stunning - it was a surreal moment.
^^My mother cried when I showed her this shot, and said Kelly looked so full of joy. I couldn't have agreed more...
