Even though I don’t see her often, LT (now LF) is one of my favorite people. She and I lived together our sophomore year of college randomly, and I’m so glad it worked out. LT is one of the warmest, kindest people I know. She gives the world’s best hugs and always wants to know how your life is. In the year we were roommates, I went through my first big break up, she dealt with huge feuds at the student newspaper she was editor of, and we both were getting used to a school we didn’t feel like we quite fit in at. It was a heck of a year of growing for us, and I’m so thankful I had our little oasis of a dorm room to go back to at the end of the day. LT is awesomely creative and frugal- our room was so well decorated and not dorm like. She brought in bookshelves, a comfy armchair, wall decorations and nice lamps. To top off the homey feeling, LT had a homemade quilt on her bed. After getting my butt kicked by my MWF classes (Physics at 9, Orgo at 10, Molecular Bio at 11) it felt so nice to go back to our little spot. We weren’t often there together- she was super busy with the honors program and the student newspaper and I was carrying 28 credits and was always in class- but when we were there together, it felt like a home away from home.
Anyways, I digress. I started this post because my wonderful friend got married on Saturday. I’ve been so heavily anticipating her wedding because I knew it would be perfect- understated, beautiful and simple. And it totally was. From the invitiation (a postcard with a cute picture of them) to the wedding website to the day itself, LT and JF really made the wedding about being together and being with their family- not about who could throw the fanciest bash.
It was so well done, and just so LT. I loved the reception and here are a few pictures I managed to snag:Anyway, the bottom line is it was a beautiful ceremony. L
