here are a few photos (some with the real camera, some iphone photos) from carolyn’s wedding day in chicago last saturday. you may have seen a few of these already if you follow josh or me on instagram, but i wanted to share the rest here. i took so many photos (surprise surprise) that i broke them up into two posts. i wish i would have grabbed more photos of carolyn in her dress! she was just breathtaking! i didn’t want to bother her too much through the night though as she was busy celebrating with guests. but from the few photos of her here, you can tell she looked absolutely gorgeous.
i am beyond grateful for carolyn. she is one of my dearest friends and has been since that first day of orientation at juilliard back in 2004. she’s always *always* been there for me and i certainly hope to be the kind of friend in return that she is to me. i can’t wait to watch this next chapter unfold for her. love you, girl.

^^^cutest cake toppers known to man.^^^
