Congrats to Mark and Sarah!

So last weekend we went down to Cincinnati to throw an engagement party for our friends Sarah and Mark:
Sarah/Mark's Engagement Party
the happy couple.
I wanted to take a walk around UC’s campus and photograph some of the new stuff that’s gone on since I graduated waaaaay back in 2004 but sadly there was no time. I did, however, remember to bring my camera to the party because I wanted to get some nice group shots of my friends. Right. One martini in and I relinquished control of the camera to Osam. Which means instead I have pictures like this:

Heh. There are even more over on the flickr site.

We did manage to get at least one group shot of one of the tables:

Starting in the center going around - Lori Beth, Amy, Matt, Brian, Jason, Osam, Mike, Sarah (the bride!), Alyson, Me.
So that’s nice.

It was a really fun weekend. Great to see everyone again. And I’m so happy for Sarah – she was one of my bridesmaids and my roommate for about 90% of the time that we were engaged. She listened, agonized over swatches, gave me her honest opinion when I needed it, and helped to throw us a beautiful shower. But most importantly she was completely supportive and just ridiculously happy for us and thrilled to be a part of it all.

In short she was everything a bridesmaid should be:

If you're looking for crafting content - I made the necklace she's wearing.

I’m so very thrilled that I get to return the favor! Even if it means wearing bright pink taffeta. Actually I believe my exact (possibly martini fueled) thoughts were “I’ll wear a $900 neon green garbage bag if you want me to!” Let’s hope she doesn’t hold me to that.

(although I completely deserve it if she makes me wear dyed shoes)
