Mr. and Mrs. Christman!

This past weekend's wedding had a lot of meaning to me, personally, and put me in a place that I have never ever been in before...the Maid of Honor! Yes, that's right, I was juggling double-duties...shooting, wearing the dress, giving the speech, yadda yadda - and, if I must say so myself, I did a pretty damn good job (with the help of my amazing crew of course!) However, this blog post is not about me at all, it is all about my childhood-best-friend, Amber and her awesome husband, Joe!

When Amber and Joe started planning their wedding, they wanted to somehow merge their love for triathlons, cycling...and Lance Armstrong. Seriously, they might borderline on winning Lance's 'Biggest Fans Ever' award. When you walk into their home, there are posters of him, books, inspirational quotes, jerseys, you-name-it-they-have-it. So, it was more than fitting when they settled on a theme for their wedding day - LIVESTRONG.

Now, something happened on their wedding day, that I thought was just so cool. Amber was at her parent's house and Joe and I got up early for the festivities and, of course, Joe knew that it was the first day of the 2011 Tour de France. As we clicked on the good old T.V., the first words that flashed across the screen were 'The Journey Begins' and the announcers began to talk about how there has to truly be a perfect marriage between all the cyclists on a team to win the Tour. They went on and on...and all I could think about was how incredibly fitting those words were on the morning of Amber and Joe's wedding!

At the end of the day, a great man married my best friend and there is not a detail, dress or frilly cake detail that could top that! Joe and Amber - I am truly happy for the both of you - Congratulations and thank you so much for letting me be a part of it!
