Yesterday, my friend Heidi married her Prince Charming, Ryan.

I’ve known Heidi for about 8 years now!  We were both student employees in the same office and bonded over a summer of taking staples out and taping paper together, all to be scanned into electronic files.  I wish I was kidding about the taping paper together.  I’m not.  We’ve shared a lot of laughs and tears, been there through great times and not so great.  We’ve even taken road trips together!  I feel blessed to count her as a friend.

Heidi and Ryan first met and briefly dated her freshman year of college and lost touch over time.  About a year and a half-ish or so ago, they reconnected thanks to Facebook and over time, fell in love, despite the challenges of a long distance relationship as he lives in California, while she was here in Michigan.  They got engaged in November, while Ryan was home for the holidays and quickly settled on April 9, 2011 as their happily ever after.

The ceremony was simple, but very beautiful, and she was a gorgeous bride!

They had a candy bar as their gift for the guests – what a fun idea!  There were M&M type candies, blue raspberry gummy bears, Hershey kisses, thank you suckers, and a bunch of other fun stuff.

Jacqueline was my “date” for the evening – although we got seated at different tables.  Sadface.  I did get to sit with a bunch of my former co-workers from Grand Valley, so it was nice to see them again!

Jac and I spent a lot of the evening chatting with our friend, Liz, who was the Mistress of Ceremonies.

The food was delicious – we started out with salad and bread.  I had the vegetarian entree, which was pasta with artichoke hearts, mushrooms, asparagus, red bell pepper, and garlic, all coated with a tomato sauce.

And of course, cake for dessert!  It had a great raspberry filling, but the frosting was by far the best part!!

Congratulations, Heidi and Ryan!!!  Best wishes to you both as you start your life together!
