My very first friend, Danielle, married her best friend, Bryan, in a beautiful┬ácelebration rejoicing faith, family and friends. Dan and I quickly became BFFs as toddlers in the same preschool and have remained close despite going to different schools and separate cities throughout three decades. I attribute this to her infectious charisma and gift for nurturing relationships. I love that life has now landed us both in Seattle. Bryan is equally charismatic so it’s a joy to continue our friendship and witness their loving relationship. With them being so special to me, it broke my heart I couldn’t travel to our hometown at nine months pregnant to attend their wedding. I was there in spirit and honored to have a small hand in Danielle’s elegant glow with pearl and diamond earrings. She radiated in Gonzaga’s beautiful St Aloysius Church and I can imagine how the swing of the dangle earrings shimmered during shimmies on the dance floor, because I know Mr & Mrs Amstrup rocked it.

Cheers to a lifetime of love and friendship!
