Dallas & Sam – Oceanside Engagement

My best friends wedding.

I’m stupidly excited that I get to say that. For real.

Sam is my best friend and when I found out that Dallas was “the one” I couldn’t have been more thrilled. Their relationship is so special to me. I totally set them up… kind of. Well, mostly. I’ll just take credit because I’m the reason they know eachother so THERE. ;-)  I’m getting to play two roles in that I couldn’t be more honored to be filling. I get to be matron of honor and  Sean and I get to shoot their wedding.

This wedding in particular is probably the most special to me and dearest to my heart. Sam is the most amazing person. She’s fiercely loyal, kind hearted, smart, warm and truly the most loving person. She’s open minded and so full of passion. She’s inspiring. She hasn’t always had it easy and if you know Sam you know that regardless what cards she’s been dealt, it doesn’t matter. If there is something her heart wants it will happen. She’s just amazing like that. I love her more than words can express and she’s more than just a best friend… she’s more like a sister… or a kindred spirit. Watching her light up when Dallas’ name is mentioned or smile the biggest smile I’ve ever seen when he looks at her warms my heart. Her and Dallas have such a wonderful dynamic. They are probably two of the funniest people I’ve ever known but mostly they are two of the most selfless and loving individuals and I thank the Lord daily that I get to be a part of their life.

To my BFFFFFFFFFFF: I’m gushing with excitement for your new life. For everything that you will experience from here on out with the one who loves you most of all. I’m happy beyond expression. I’m sad because I don’t get you all to myself anymore. ;-) But mostly, I’m thankful. I’m thankful for your beautiful heart and for who you are. For the friend you are to me and always have been. I’m blessed by you. You deserve ALL of the happiness in the world and I know that Dallas will be the biggest part of that happiness. I love you both!

Now for some photos!

Yeah, they are good looking. I get it. :-)

Sam, don’t kill me for posting this one. This is your extra happy smile… and I love it!

Sam… you are beautiful.
