A very special day, my dearest friend is getting married! | Dearest Lou

A very special day, my dearest friend is getting married!

So.. I pretty much feel like the biggest stalker right now because I've been checking Kandice's instagram every few hours hoping to get a glimpse of all of the neat stuff her and Sean are experiencing right now! So if you're wondering where I got these pictures well.. now you know. Here's a few of my personal favorites, I'm sure there will be more throughout their vacation:
Kandice at a hotel in Portland after the long drive!
The yurt aka their temporary home.
Beautiful forest and people!
The ocean.
The soon-to-be newlyweds!

Dear Dish,

I cannot believe the day has finally come! Today you become an official Breinholt and get to marry the guy of your dreams! I wish with all my heart that I could attend your ceremony, I've even teared up a few times this weekend thinking about how I won't be there to support you. Unfortunately, due to financial circumstances Daryl and I weren't able to attend and it really breaks my heart. However, I'm SO excited to see you next week and to hear all about your wedding adventure!

I'm just SO HAPPY for you and grateful for the important role you've played in my life since we met. I don't know who or where I would be today without you. I hope today is truly everything you've ever imagined and more and I hope you know it's all I will be thinking about. I'm so glad that you guys are getting pictures so that I can see how everything went down. I look forward to all of the new experiences we will have together as our families g r o w.

I remember talking to you back in January under Daryl's families Christmas tree, telling you that you should just get married this year! Things kind of just fell into place and you guys REALLY are, can you believe it?!  I can't explain in words how much you and Sean mean to me and I'm so happy that you're finally sealing the deal in one of the prettiest places on the planet. I've almost known you for 7 years and we both wouldn't have thought if you asked our 13 year old punk selves that we would be where we are today. I'm so thankful for everything you've done for me and for our special friendship. 

I hope that today is the happiest day of your life and I wish you and Seanzy a happy forever<3

Love, Shepskie


  1. Congrats to your friends! Too bad you can't join them - but hey, you can always have an after-wedding party together later! :)

  2. I feel your pain. My bestie lives in Seattle, and the other in Florida (and I'm here in UT). When special things happen in their lives, I hate that I can't just hop in the car and be there. Best of luck to your friend!

  3. Wish her all the happiness :)

  4. this is so sweet. i LOVE her instagrams! i can't wait to hear how it all went. i'm sorry you couldn't be there, but this little note and post was so sweet. it's like you're there in spirit. and we really do all need to hang out! ESPECIALLY since school is over FOREVER!! what're your plans now?

  5. Ahh Oregon coast- my home! :D
    congrats to Kandice!
