Exactly one week ago today, my big grown up brother got married.
However, lucky for him, he married the most wonderful bride anyone could ask for.
Her name is Ashley.
Why is she so wonderful?? Well my brother is a huge sports fan.
More like a sports fanatic.
So, Ashley is wonderful because she knew this dating him and...well...she still loves him!
Haha also she fits perfectly into our family.
Their wedding was so beautiful! I didn't get many pictures because I wanted to enjoy this wonderful moment in his life and not worry about trying to capture a bunch of "Kodak" moments.
I thought I would for sure get all emotional when Ash got into her dress and was finishing up getting ready for the big moment. However, to my surprise I didn't get too teary eyed and all choked up. I thought to myself, "Kjerstin, maybe you are more tough than you thought! Maybe you are going to get through this wedding without a tear!" Then for some reason I had a great idea to go see my big bro in the grooms room. (yeaaaa....about that not crying part) The minute I saw Braxt and gave him a hug the tears started rushing, my throat got tight, and I literally had to run out of his room so I didn't start bawling!
My brother and I have been through a lot together and no matter what we have always had each other to turn to. He was always there for me even when I was scared of the dark, being harassed by boys at school, headed down a path that was going to get me grounded, and especially if I ever needed advice. He was my first best friend.
It's crazy how we grow up so fast. I am so happy for him and his beautiful bride! I am excited for our family to grow and to have my very first sister in law! I love them both so much and I can honestly say I wish them the absolute very best in their long wonderful marriage.
