Pinky Promise

VIA Our Wedding.

Pinky Promise
An eternally binding act of hooking pinky fingers together in an attempt to seal the deal of a promise that has been made.

Speedracer and I got really lucky when it came to our Wedding Photographer. Stephanie and my sister have known each other since they were in 4th grade, and so when the decision was made to have Stephanie photograph our Engagement and Wedding we knew it would be an amazing experience because of the personal friendship we had already had for the past 17 years. Our Engagement photoshoot went off with a bang - it was 91 degrees out and we were shaded by a huge oak tree with my SR's racecar in the distance. because yes, we had the car in our engagement  photos. And we were anxious for the wedding to arrive because taking pictures in a white dress and tuxedo make you feel super fancy..and royal.
There were a few pictures I told Stephanie that I absolutely wanted her to capture - and one of them is the photo above. I wanted her to get a picture of my SR and I making a Pinky Promise. I don't know about you, but when I was a kid a pinky promise was the ultimate sign of commitment and if you ever broke the promise you were pretty much exiled. I took pinky promises really serious when I was a kid. With friendships they meant a lot because little girls know that only your bestest of friend would make pinky promises with you and keep them. But when a boy makes a pinky promise with you..well, you're obviously going to get married to them one day..probably once you get into 5th grade. naturally. 
My Speedracer and I not only did a traditional unity ceremony but we also decided to lock in our commitment to each other by doing a super sweet hand shake that we made up together. Everyone laughed and loved it. Good Ol' Speedracer and Ashlee fashion. And it's sort of hard to photograph a sweet handshake so we decided to act like those 3rd grade crushes and seal our love with a pinky promise....and I think that I picked the ultimate crush to make this promise with. He is pretty cute if I don't say so myself.
