Mary is Married!!!!

I would like to start off by saying: CONGRATULATIONS TO MARY AND KEVIN CHIEREK!!!!

What. A. Weekend. 

It happened ladies and gentlemen. 1425 entered into a new stage in our friendship. Marriage. haha Do you like how I said "1425" entered...Kevin (and soon to be), John, and to the other future hubbies...I have to let you in on a little secret. There are no secrets. Haha, jk. (kind of)

We all knew it would happen one day. We would find the loves of our lives and settle down. It just all seemed to start happening...so fast! I know, we are 27 and 28, but that is the new "young adult", right? (you better say right) We (1425, and for those who don't know what in the hell that is...it's our college government housing project # that us 5 besties lived in during college. Yah, you read that right) have always been so close, in part, because we have always all been in about the same stages of life. Which for the past 5 years mainly consisted of single-hood. While some may read that as a "yikes!" we had and are still having the times of our lives!

We have made it a point to get together AT LEAST once per year, mainly being a ski trip to Colorado...thank you Frank and Mama T! But have also been able to share in many other vacations and trips to visit one another. I truly believe that we are so blessed to have one another...how many people can say that they still talk to their best friends from college at least a couple times per month (if not more!) and are able to see each other so often? 

What I believe it so funny about it all is how different we all are! I mean, I would never have imagined such a random group of girls with different hobbies, interests, and personalities being so close...except for one uniting factor: Christ. There is just something about a friendship when it is rooted in Christ: you can TRULY be honest about everything and know that you won't be judged (well at least not to your face, right? KIDDING.) and that you will be truly supported during tough times and praised during times of joy! 

Well, this past weekend, Kevin Chierek married one of the best of 'em. Mary formerly O'Keefe. And I couldn't be more thrilled to welcome Kevin into a lifetime of 1425 festivities, drama, and let's be serious into the nursing home. (bahaha) Kevin, you have found yourself one hell of a woman. And you have all of our love and support as you two start a wonderful life together! 

Don't have a whole lot of pics, I was too busy dancing and enjoying the open bar. Don't judge me. 

At the rehearsal dinner at Maggiano's. Our newest member included!

After we got our herrr and makeup did, in the limo "Going to the chapel to get married"!

Hands down, probs THE most beautiful bride I've ever seen. 

While I am not a fan of how preggo I look in this picture (no, I am not preggo in case you people thought I fell off the chastity train) I love how beautiful the flowers and dresses look! And we are obviously very into Mary and Kevin saying their vows. 

Classy bridesmaid.
