Bridesmaids–Volume V–Sarah

Sarah and I met in 2004 while working a wedding together. The story begins before I actually met her. I was working for a wedding planner and as we prepared for a BIG wedding she let me know this girl “Sarah” would be working the event with us. She proceed to tell me how amazing, wonderful and efficient Sarah was (is). She spoke of her being her children’s nanny AND wedding assistant. She spoke so highly of her that I knew this “Sarah” would be a huge pain in my butt and I would dislike her instantly. I actually did dislike her without even meeting her.

The day of the wedding I dreaded meeting this “sun-shining-out-of-her-ass Sarah”. When I got to the venue I started working. This nice looking girl walked up and asked if I was Lizzie. Surely this was not the evil bitch Sarah….but I was wrong (about all things above). This nice, friendly, take no b.s. from the wedding planner was the “Sarah” I was dreading. Turns out we had a lot in common, became best of friends, and ended up living together in 2004 until now.

Here are some pictures from her book:

I decided to ask Sarah on her birthday this year. Her boyfriend, Donnie, grilled for dinner as Doug and I attended to celebrate her birthday. I asked Doug to take pictures of her opening her presents. Not only did he take pictures, but also a video. Enjoy!!


Go to 47 seconds to see the very end…yay!

Love and Hugs, Lizzie

P.S. Still having issues with the converter….I might have to wait to announce the rest of the bridesmaids until next week. Forgive me!
