Amanda’s Big Day!

This past Saturday was my dear friend, Amanda  Bradshaw’s wedding day, and I was extremely fortunate and honored to play the role as one of her bridesmaids. I have known Amanda for over 10 years now and feel incredibly grateful to have had her in my life for so long.

It is hard to come across people like Amanda- her attributes are magnetic. As long as I have known her, people seem to gravitate towards her and I can understand why. She cares about everyone she meets, especially her friends and family. She is a one of a kind listener and giver of her time, but she hardly demands these things in return. She is never negative and her positivity is contagious- it is almost impossible to be in a bad mood around her. She really is one of the most easy to love, likeable people I have ever known. I truly love and admire her and could not be more thankful to have her as a great friend all these years.

Before I get to the big day, I want to mention how nice the rehearsal dinner was. The event was held on the patio of Primo’s Mexican Bar & Grille which overlooked Lake Ray Hubbard. Everyone enjoyed a nice dinner on the patio overlooking the lake. The weather was beautiful, food was beyond great, and everyone seemed to have a good time.
