Christi’s bridal gift

As you know, my brother got married the other week. I was a bridesmaid (and photographer & ran video which we never do for weddings, but when it’s your brother, you make exceptions), and I thought we should be able to pull together a great gift for his bride. The other bridesmaids as well as some of Christi’s BFFs and her parents sent me lots of great pictures from their life with Christi and I put together this little album for her. We printed it as a 6×6 and we gave it to her at the rehearsal dinner. It went over great! So for those who didn’t get to see it at the wedding weekend or are curious what it would look like to put lots of different pictures into a designer album, here you go. (I did not take all of these pictures, but I did take a bunch near the second half from the cruise).

And here’s the poem from the end:

Friendship is a quiet walk in the park with the one you trust.
Love is when you feel like you are the only two around.

Friendship is when they gaze into your eyes, and you know they care.
Love is when he gazes into your eyes, and it warms your heart.

Friendship is being close even when you are far apart.
Love is when you can still feel his hand on your heart when he is not near.

Friendship is hoping that they experience the very best.
Love is when you bring him the very best.

Friendship occupies your mind.
Love occupies your soul.

Friendship is knowing that you will always be there when needed.
Love is when you will give up everything to be at his side.

Friendship is a warm smile in the winter.
Love is a warming touch that sends a pulse through your heart.

Friendship can survive without love.
Love cannot live without friendship.
