For the last four years, I have heard countless stories and descriptions of Yvette’s family and friends. I had imagined and conjured up images in my mind of who they were. This weekend, we travelled bright and early on a Friday morning to meet the pack of women who have stood by Yvie’s side her entire life. They are more beautiful, more fun, and even more talented than I could ever have imagined. Our weekend in Michigan was truly unforgettable. To the family that treated us like family and to the friends that treated us like friends, thank you from the bottom of our Californian hearts. We had a blast and can’t wait to dance the night away at the wedding.

These photos are a tribute to my beautiful friend, who has grown only more stunning through the seasons and trials of life.
