Before our wedding day, no one had seen my wedding dress whatsoever, save for my mom, my sister, and Rob’s mom. It was a complete secret and so much fun to let my girls guess what my gown might look like. I loved keeping my gown a secret, and building a bridesmaid reveal into our wedding day was incredible, surreal, and so darn fun!! Their reactions are AMAZING, so sweet and touching, and priceless.
Every time I look at these images of my bridesmaid reveal with my best friends, I genuinely tear up thinking about this special moment with these friends. These ladies have impacted me so very much, and they’ve been the most treasured, constant, loving friends. To get to share these special moments with them on our wedding day was truly priceless. These ladies have prayed for me for so many years – and prayed for my future husband. They’ve walked with me through the ups and downs of life and through singleness – and encouraged me every step of the way. Their sheer joy and excitement here is one of the most incredible treasures in the world.
Biggest smile of my LIFE, right here!!!
