Amanda and Jennifer are two of the funnest people. Yes, funnest. Amanda has a really contagious, wonderful laugh, and Jennifer is incredibly funny. Together, they’re happy and laughing and adorable and the funnest. We woke up early and joined them for their brunch wedding (where there was french toast and sausage and eggs and some sort of magical potato hashbrown casserole) which was delightful because Amanda is also gluten intolerant so I could eat their food and also their cake (which was all very, very delicious). Also, brunch is the best, and their favors were mugs that said, “THANKS A BRUNCH” that I may or may not have been drinking tea out of all week because everyone loves a good brunch pun.

They are SO NICE! And their families are SO NICE! And we got to hang out with everyone and celebrate with them and be there for all those special moments like the one where they called their dog boarder in the car on the way to the ceremony to make sure their dogs were okay because it was the first time they had been boarded and they were concerned (spoiler alert: the dogs were fine and well adjusted and had made friends with the people at the kennel). And it was super fun and they had us laughing and entertained all day. Amanda and Jennifer are so good for each other and practically radiate little heart-eye emojis and we love them A BRUNCH.
