A lakeside wedding in Peoria, IL | Nick + Sarah

December 29, 2018

When your very good friend gets married, you try your hardest to fight back tears. And when you get to capture every detail of her special day, you feel like the luckiest girl alive. 

It’s true what they say… you meet your best friends in college. I met this amazing girl about 10 years ago at Bradley, and my life hasn’t been the same since. We’ve had some awesome times together and some sad times together, but watching Sarah marry her soulmate has been my favorite memory of all.

Sarah has always deserved the very best. She’s selfless, sweet, quirky, and obsessed with purple. Simply put, she has a heart of gold (or should I say a heart of purple?). I prayed she’d find someone all deserving of her love. And Nick is just that.

It’s obvious Nick adores Sarah in the way she deserves to be adored. And he’s just as selfless and caring as Sarah. These two were made to be together… I see it in the way they look at each other. And knowing Sarah is the happiest she has ever been, fills me with nothing but love for the man who stole her heart.

It’s clear… Nick was brought into Sarah’s life for a purpose. And the icing on the (wedding) cake is knowing their love will only grow stronger and deeper with time.

Thanks for letting Kayla and I play such an awesome role in your big day, Sarah and Nick! We feel beyond blessed to be part of your lives, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for you.

And Nick, welcome to the roommate family! We are so happy to have you!
