The Avdyukov Wedding

Miranda and I met at some point in second grade. We went to church together and quickly became best friends. We teased our siblings together, wrote each other a million notes, and laughed all of the time. I grew up with this lady. We even got to attend high school with each other for a few years before her family relocated to Tennessee.

I met Kirill the day before their wedding in a hotel parking lot, I was unloading my car and my hands were full so I had carried my phone charger with my mouth. The moment I turned around, there was Kirill standing across from me so I awkwardly waved. He never said anything about how stupid/silly I looked with my, “I will not be making two trips,” face and funny placement of a charger and that’s when I knew he had to be a great guy.

All weekend Miranda and Kirill amazed me with their gratefulness and expression of that gratefulness to everyone around them. They are some of the most sincere people I have had the privilege of knowing.

Their wedding took place in Naples, Fl at the Tarpon Cove Yacht & Racket Club. I have never seen so many palm trees in my life guys, I think I’m in love. The ceremony was on a beach a small boat ride away at almost sunset.

The way Miranda and Kirill interact with each other is ridiculously perfect. It’s like they are out of a movie, so loving, as if they are just extensions of the other one.

I wish you guys all of the happiness in the world. Kirill, take good care of my best friend alright?

Their cake had random raspberry puree throughout the cake. The piece of cake they cut out had a perfect upside down smiley face in it. How insanely cute is that?
