Bridemaids’ Pics

After us girls all got ready at the Hilton, we headed outside to the Walk of Fame Park to snap a few pictures!  We also headed over to the Schermerhorn Symphony Center and took some pics in front of the beautiful fountains.  APPARENTLY, that is against the rules, and we got kicked out after just a couple of pics…at least they turned out great and it didn’t matter.  =)  Here’s a look at some of my favorite pics (again, all pics are courtesy of Streetlight Republic):

After getting kicked out of the Schermerhorn, we headed over to Rocketown and had a few pics made that included our flower girls:

I also thought I would take this opportunity to tell you a little about my bridesmaids.  First up, is Laura, my sister and maid of honor.  She and I have always been there for each other, and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect person to be my top maid!

Next up is Andi!  She and I met my first semester in college (even though she doesn’t remember me…Ha!), but became good friends when we worked together (and shared an office) at our first job out of college.  I’m not exactly sure how we both didn’t get fired for chatting so much, but we definitely had a great time!

Kathleen and I met our last semester of undergrad when we did a group project together.  We later became friends in grad school and have been really tight ever since.  When I first moved to Nashville, she took me under her wing and made sure I always had something to do.  We even both married 2 guys who had been friends for years as well!

Anna Catherine and I also became friends in grad school.  My favorite AC story is when she tells people that she remembers talking to me on a riverboat cruise during the first week in grad school, and she swore I was so unhappy and stressed about school that I was going to jump off the boat.  I laugh every time I hear that story because it was soooo true!  Anyway, AC, Kat, and I have stayed extremely close in the last 8 years, especially since she also lives in the Middle TN area.

Alysia and I became friends when she started working at the same CPA firm as me just a few months after I did.  We immediately hit it off and even though she has moved on to another job, she and I have become even better friends!  She’s also a pretty good kickball player!

Next up is my 2nd cousin, Stephanie!  I was a flower girl in her mother’s wedding almost 25 years ago, and was happy to have her a bridesmaid in mine!

And, last but not least is Kristine, my sister-in-law!  Not only is she super sweet and super fun, but she has made me feel a part of the family since the first time I met her.  The only thing wrong with Kristine is that she lives on the other side of the country.  =(  Oh, well, that just means that Patrick and I can take road trips to see her in California!
