We’ve stayed very close friends ever since! She was a bridesmaid in my wedding. She’s the third on the left:
Photos from a lovely bridesmaid’s luncheon. From L to R: Johanna, Abi, me.
Morning of the wedding: Abi steams her gorgeous dress and Lauren (another dear friend who lived with us at UVA) preps to be a beautiful bridesmaid.
All the bridesmaids from UVA! Six of us (out of Abi’s ten bridesmaids) had been friends at Mr. Jefferson’s University.
Abi is veiled for the ceremony!
Trolley ride to the wedding… such fun! Maggie and I pose for a blurry shot on the ride over.
Final moments before Abi walks down the aisle to Jorge. Stay hydrated, Abi! She made all our beautiful hair pieces.
And they are married!!! We rode the trolley again to take some photos and then arrived at the wedding venue, where Abi had made lovely papel picado and strung the cutouts over the dance floor. Every detail of this wedding was hand-crafted and designed by Abi and Jorge.
At the end of the night we even got a picture with the bride! Lovely Abi and her Jorge headed off soon after this among the ringing of wedding bells. I’m so glad for you, sweet Abi, and rejoice for you and Jorge. Can’t wait to see you again soon so we can chit-chat about married life!
