down the aisle they go | MEET THE BRIDAL PARTY pt 1

{here is where we left off during the last wedding re-cap}

... as I hid at the side of the building with my dad my heart sank in my chest as I waited to go down the aisle. Because I was entering from a seperate way from everyone, I had no idea what was going on or when exactly we were beginning. Suddenly I heard the music for the bridal party and I knew I just had moments to go before making my big entrance. The bridal party walked into one of my favorite songs, "I Call It Love" by Lionel Richie:

I peaked through the bushes and watched the girls walk down the aisle one by one...

Anna-Kay is my little cousin/sister who came all the way from Jamaica to be one of my bridesmaids. When I saw her all dolled up for the wedding, I was almost in tears. One day we're jumping off her roof playing Power Rangers and all of a sudden she's 19 and making straight A's in college. It was a really weird feeling - I love her so much - I felt like a proud parent. I don't get to see her as much now that I no longer live in Jamaica, but luckily for Facebook we're able to chat just about everyday...I love my Anna Banana.

Sonia is the one true friend that I made living in Florida. I've never met anyone like her. She marches to the beat of her own drum and has opened my eyes to a lot of things that I otherwise would be too scared to try. I met her while working at the bridal shop where she was my manager but quickly became my friend. She makes me laugh....she supports my shopping habit...and has the best ipod playlist known to man.

Cousin Kim has made many appearances on my little blog! She's super duper awesome for the following reasons:

  • she's a germ-o-phobe who can't touch people and I love to see her reaction when people try to hug her

  • she has the most awesome sneaker collection

  • her milkshake brings all the boys to the yard

  • she's cousin who is always down for anything no matter what time of night or day it is - whether it's an early morning beach session or a night late drive to do nothing - she's there.

Candace is also my age and has already been married for over a year and has 2 beautiful boys. Whenever people tell me it's weird that I got married at 22 years old, I always show her off as an example, lol

Oh Janique...where do I start?
Janique is the "ride or die" of the family - literally. She has one of the biggest hearts, but if you so much as look at her or one of her family members wrong - there is no way of saving you...all I can do is close my eyes and pray for you. From birth we have been as thick as thieves and that is a bond that no one can break. Without a doubt she's always there for me...I admire her strength, sometimes I wish I was like her
