11 years ago this little, sweet, bubbly, 21 year old girl, with a name I couldn't pronounce correctly, appeared at the Knick during my 22nd birthday soiree. It was Christiane, more commonly known as Kissy. She was a friend of my friend Angel and she just so happened to be a bar tender who that night introduced me to Cherry Kamikazes and Cosmos made with raspberry Vodka. Even though we had literally just met, she ensured that my birthday was nothing short of a fabulous celebration. Little did I know that this amazing person would quickly become my best friend and other half.
Over the past 11 years we have had so many experiences together and many of my best memories have been with Christiane. From nights we barely remember, to getting yelled at by her gram for drawing with chalk on the driveway, to the birth of her son, we've really been through it all. So when she announced her engagement, I knew that it would be yet another fantastic memory together.
Christiane and Zane have this crazy chemistry that just ignites when they are around each other. Their wedding day was filled with passion, love, and a lot of laughter. Kissy was the most glamourous bride I've ever seen. When she started down the aisle I could feel my eyes welling with tears. She just glowed and it warmed my heart to see her find happiness and love. Then as I turned and looked at Zane as he saw his bride walking toward him, he was totally caught up in the moment and the love he has for his bride was shining through. The enter day was beautiful and a true reflection of their personalities and love story.
Kissy and Zane I am so happy for you two. It was truly an honor to not only be in the wedding party, but to be the one to capture every magical moment. I love you both so so much and I wish you many many many years of wedded bliss.
