Tori + Michael's Wedding Day
It was so surreal to be at Tori's Wedding. I've been best friends with Tori's older sister Mandi since we were too young to drive ourselves to concerts and while our other friends were off doing "cool kid things" in middle school, we were in the corner rocking out to Iron Maiden. Needless to say some of the best times of me growing up involved their family. Their family has become family to me and I've been there to watch Tori grow into the woman she is today. One minute you're young and dreaming of what it'll be like when you are married with a career and then all of a sudden you are and life is different. I think sometimes we confuse our tears for sad tears during weddings or graduations but that couldn't be farther from the truth. Seeing the people I love grow into more amazing people than they already are gives me an overwhelming sense of happiness. Watching my little brother get married, now Tori, and now my brothers friends, it just makes my heart so full. I'm so excited to see what life has in store for Tori and Michael as they grow individually and in their marriage.
Tori and Michael said their vows under a gorgeous pergola at the Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs. It was a gorgeous day for an outdoor wedding and Eureka has so many hidden gems that I can't wait to go back and visit. Here are just a few of my favorites from Tori and Michael's wedding day. Enjoy!
