Wedding Week Day Five [-bridal party-]

In honor of our second wedding anniversary, each day for the next week or so I will be writing a little tidbit about our big day.  I love re-living all this special moments, so I hope you enjoy reading about it too!


Zack and I have some wonderful amazing people in our lives.  Our whole wedding day we just felt so incredibly blessed by the amount of love we felt from family and friends.  Here are some photos of our bridal party, and some words that I wrote about my bridesmaids on our wedding website. :)

Katie and Angela met on a college trip to Italy.  After Italy Angela was always over at her house, where Zack also lived, making dinner, doing homework, or watching Grey's Anatomy.  Katie knew Angela and Zack would be great together...  We like to think she was right.

Kayla and Angela met in college, Angela could often be found in Kayla's apartment during her last semester of college.  Angela currently has the pleasure of living with Kayla in their cozy little lady bug infested apartment in NE Portland.  Angela couldn't think of a better "last roommate" to live with before she gets married.

Meredith is another one of Angela's college friends...Meredith and Angela bond over a love of coloring in their Doodle Books.   Their friendship started one day in the library when Angela poured her heart out to Meredith while working on a psychology project together.  They've been friends ever since.

Stacey is a newlywed herself...Angela was a bridesmaid in her wedding last October.  Stacey and Angela lived together their very last semester of college where they would enjoy their weekly lunch date called "Tuna Friday."  Stacey initiated Zack and Angela's relationship when she told Zack she would give him $3 to kiss Angela, which he did...Zack and Angela are still waiting for the $3.

BB is Angela's best of the best of friends.  They met in first grade atop an ant hill, and it's been magic ever since. The first time BB met Zack she announced that Angela and Zack's relationship was, "the start of something beautiful." She obviously was right.

Jessie aka MC is Angela's cousin and one of her very best friends.  When Angela was young and very shy, Jessie was one of the only people she would talk to.  Now that they're older and way more mature they enjoy dressing up in weird outfits for family get togethers,  performing their 5 minute not-so-secret handshake for crowds, and hanging out with their favorite 3 year old. (Featured below.)

Danielle Dyell, Adrian-Danni-Bear... all perfect names for Angela's Matron of Honor. Danielle is Angela's older, slightly wiser, sister.  Danielle has spent a lifetime with Angela playing pranks, reading each others' diaries,  driving their parents crazy, and making altogether a ton of great memories.

Cooper is Zack and Angela's favorite three-year-old. He is too cool for words and brings a smile to everyone he comes in contact with. Zack and Angela can't wait to have him be a part of their special day.
