Our dear friends Nikki + Nate had a BANGIN’ wedding back in September and recently got their videographer’s view of their big day. This is too good not to share. These two should give classes to couples on writing your own vows. I dare you not to cry!

Everything Caleb Hawley touches turns to gold including this fantastic cover of “Feels Like Home.”
What the heck happened to April and May? What happened to March for that matter? Let me go ahead and dust the cobwebs off of this blog! Yikes!
Now that school is out and I’m as excited as a 2nd grader for summer vacation, I plan to get back to my blogging roots. I don’t think there will be any New York City pig roasts and *hopefully* there won’t be any floating cars in our future for this summer, but I’m sure we’ll get ourselves into something crazy!
Over the past couple of months, we’ve seen some awesome shows, had some great visitors, and have been getting back to our road-trippin’ ways. I put these pictures together to give you the 20 second sound byte version of our last couple of months! Enjoy!
Matt and I LOVE weddings, so we are lucky to be knee-deep in wedding season! We have been graciously invited to six weddings inside the blur of a 5-month span, which means that Matt and I will be able to travel across the country, see very-missed friends and family, eat delicious food, and dance not ONCE but SIX times to “Sweet Caroline!” Cheers!
As we progress through our twenties each year seems to bring more weddings. This year’s total so far has been four with one more on the books in early November. Over the last few years several of my good friends from college have been wed but, amazingly enough, everyone that I was close with in high school seems to have skirted the issue.

Lurking in the back of my head throughout life has always been this thought: am I a good friend in return to the people that I care so much about? I’ve believed that being a best man would be a resounding yes to that question, even if it only spoke for one other person.
That’s why I viewed being David’s best man as one of the great honors of my life thus far. David is my oldest friend and I’ve known him longer than anyone other than my immediate family. Being able to stand with him at his wedding is something that I have a hard time finding words to describe because it meant so much. The experience was also utterly terrifying. (more…)
