Our Second Wedding Gift

...is really just for me.

That's ok, the first gift was really meant for my fiance. His friends, whom we affectionately refer to as J&J, bought us a wrought iron skillet. Denton is quite pleased with his gift. I was told under no circumstances may I touch said skillet.

My best friend slash Maid of Honor, Nichole, has been there for me, through thick and thin, for the past 18 years. I couldn't imagine my life without Nichole. She and I have grown into two different personalities but she is the only one that I could image standing their by my side on my wedding day.

While one never expects a gift, I knew that in my heart of hearts that my best friend would give me a gift and that it wasn't going to give me cash or something off the registery. It just isn't her style nor would it reflect our relationship. With the expense of throwing me a shower and a bachelorette party, I didn't think she would spoil me...at least not like this!

When we found my dress, we found small drop earrings that looked perfect on me. Not wanting to rush, I didn't purchase them on the spot. I saw some earrings on White Aisle and showed them to her. Nichole told me NOT to get them. Why is that?

It is because my best friend bought me the most beautiful diamond earrings. She told me that they can be past down to my daughter or son's wife. Here are some pictures of the absolutely fabulous earrings. I absolutely love them!

Diamonds are really hard to photograph!

Use the macro function (that little flower, instead of the mountain) and photograph in the sunlight with no flash. You should get some gorgeous pictures because of it!
