Over the years I've had the privilege of going to school with her, singing beside her, writing songs with her, traveling with her, shopping with her, blogging with her, partying with her, road tripping with her, drinking coffee with her (although, weirdly, she orders a hot coffee and waits until it is ice cold before she'll drink it.), wrapping things in brown paper with her, freaking out with her, drinking red wine with her, giggling with her, talking until all hours of the night with her, praying with her and crying with her.
She is an incredible woman of God who is passionate, creative, confident and fiercely loyal, and I am so thankful to have her as a friend.
Although it is hard to chose, I think my favourite time spent with her was at her wedding. It was raw and honest and breezy and just lovely (Steph's all time favourite word). They had it in a little beachside town in a backyard that we transformed together into a magical land. It was this wedding that really started my love for weddings and for which I made my first ever wedding cake.
There are a million things I could tell you about this wedding, but I'll just let the photos speak for themselves. Click, click!
Ps. Her incredibly talented husband made this most beautiful video - doesn't it make YOUR knees melt?
