Chantel rockin' her little heart out!!!!!
It was such a sweet wedding. The ceremony was quick, but not quick enough to keep me from getting a big 'ol lump in my throat. The tears never broke all the way through, but I almost broke down and cried.
What really got me was looking at Nick while Ashley was walking down the aisle with her dad. Nick looked so proud of her, but so close to tears. They were definitley pooling up there, but I don't know if any ever actually fell.
And believe it or not, everything went off without a hitch. (That's a funny phrase) No major disasters, no fires, no broken hips. It was a very successful and cheerful evening, and I think we all went home happy as could be to see our friends starting their new life together.
Congrats to you Ashley....incase you ever read this!!!! I love you guys!!!!!!
