Lacey + Chris | A West Virginia Wedding

This wedding was very special…I met Lacey when I was about 11 years old and we pretty much became best friends right away. Throughout middle and high school Lacey, our other bestie, Sylvia, and I were inseparable. We grew up together, shared everything, spent many nights at each others houses and had more laughs you could imagine. The three of us knew that no matter where our lives would eventually lead us and how far apart we would physically be that this would be a lifelong friendship, and that’s exactly how it is. No matter how much time and years have gone by, when we see each other it’s as if no time has passed and I will forever be grateful for these two friendships. We made a pact when we were young that we would all be in each others wedding, I missed Sylvia’s wedding a few years ago because I was set to go on a mission trip to Russia, but Lacey got to be there for her. I was so happy to have both of them in my wedding almost 4 years ago! Lacey was 5 months pregnant at the time and came all the way down here to stand by my side, so there was no way I was missing another one of my besties weddings. It’s funny to me that we both married a “Chris”.
Chris and I left Raleigh early friday morning on Memorial Day weekend, and made our way up to Point Pleasant, WV it was just over a 6 hour drive. We got in a little late due to bad weather, but I walked into the rehearsal and there was Lace, cute as always, and as usual our eyes filled with tears of joy to see each other! This weekend was full of excitement, fun, and love. It’s been almost 10 years since i’ve seen some of my dearest childhood friends and it was refreshing! Anytime we all get together there’s nothing but laughing and sharing all our memories together. This was the second wedding in a matter of 2 months that i’ve doubled as bridesmaid and operated a camera, leaving Chris to shoot the ceremony solo like a champ, it was challenging but we are happy with how it came together! Our time together went by way too fast, as soon as the reception got close to the end we packed up the car and headed back to Raleigh to shoot another wedding the next day, it was a crazy weekend but I wouldn’t have missed it for the world! Lace, you are an awesome mother, you were a beautiful bride, and you will be an amazing wife, I love you forever and wish you and Chris all the happiness in the world!
