bliss

this weekend, marks wedding weekend for our great friends steven mueller and julie long. ryan has been friends with steven for a LONG time and steven is actually how i met ryan. when i worked at camp in santa cruz, i worked with steven at camp a few times and then hired him for the whole summer in 2004. that summer he would talk on the phone some to his friend ryan and he spoke highly of him. the following summer, ryan joined steven on the summer staff and i was only able to attend for one week. that week did it for us i guess. we were both dating other people at the time, but within a few months those relationships were over and we were spending a lot of time together. steven at the time was dating my roommate (i guess i shouldn't talk about things like that the weekend of his wedding, but it's part of our history!) and would come to fresno to hangout almost daily. ryan would tag along to hang out and he and i would end up spending much time in conversation and hanging out. the rest is history....

now, it's steven's turn. he met julie up on the kings river working as river guide two summers ago and he's been happier than i've ever seen him since that day. ryan is a groomsman and i can't wait to see the "beach bum" married his beautiful bride.

last night was the rehearsal dinner, tonight ryan is hosting the bachelor party at our house (i doubt there will be photo evidence of any of that), and sunday evening is the MAIN EVENT!

i'm looking forward to sharing in their day, as well as looking forward to hanging out with old friends from camp. it will be a great time and i can't wait to share photos on monday.
until then, i have to go clean house for a group of boys that will just destroy it in two hours flat!
