It just hit me as I was finishing these pictures and storing them inside my “engagement” folder on my computer. I created a new folder and titled it “Seth and Emily: Engaged”. Wow. This is SO surreal! Seth and Emily! They are getting married! They have engagement pictures on my computer and will be husband and wife in less than a year! Why is this such a big deal and why am I using an abundance of exclamation marks?! Well because ever since I met Emily, this has been her dream. I have heard Emily’s dream of being a wife and mother and having a family since I met her and now I’m watching it all unfold! I’m SO excited for her I can hardly stand it!
For those of you who don’t know, Em and I have been close friends the last 5 years and housemates for the last 2. I’ve never had an older sister but I’ve always told her that when I envision what that role would look like…it looks like her. We have shared life together. We’ve shared amazing, joyful times and we have been through some of the darkest moments of life together as well. It’s so crazy to think back on the long, late night talks about how hard relationships can be and how boys just don’t make sense…. and then look at where we are today! We’re planning our weddings together! We’re getting married! It’s wonderful!
I couldn’t be happier for Em and Seth. The housemates have been fans of Seth since the day Emily came back camp and told us about him! Seth is everything she needs. He’s her best friend and they just get each other….it’s beautiful. I can’t wait to watch her walk down the aisle and see her sweet daddy give her away. The wedding is going to be absolutely wonderful and I will be sure to wear waterproof mascara.
Em, I love you so so much. You have changed my life just by being my friend and loving me the way you have for so many years. I wish you the very very best and I’m praying for your marriage!
Love this next one!
I LOVE Emily’s laugh and so I never thought a serious pic would be a favorite….but oh how I love this next one!
Whew. You guys look goooood!
