[Warning: Picture heavy post ahead!]
Today, we're going to reminisce about a recent wedding that was, in short, awesome. I may be biased though since it was the wedding of one of my best friends since childhood. Alz has known her since those hazy golden days too and was also in attendance. There were confetti cannons, high school reunions, and unintended celebrity run-ins, I kid you not.
Gennia is one of my nearest and dearest friends, the one who got me into like half the fandoms I've ever been in and had 2nd breakfast and Elevensies with me throughout high school. Foodies + media junkies for life! I'd wax more poetic, but she reads this blog sometimes and is so not into cheesiness. So I'm going to stop now before I bring out the cheese fountain. Just know that she is amazing, funny, and tall (grr!), and she and her hubs (who is undeniably one of us) made their Big Day one of the best weekends ever for all of us. I couldn't be happier for them.
So I think it's best to sum up my sentimental thoughts with this ode I wrote for laughs sometime in high school, and it's all still true!
How you inspire me
with your sharp wit
How you can turn
the most idiotic of subjects
and make it sound
How you can find
the deepest of meanings
in words and phrases
that make no
How irreplaceable you are
to not only our dinky town
but also the world at
Now, the wedding in pictures!
Getting ready & sitting pretty. We played our favorite songs and drank mimosas.
The reception: Gorgeous decorations + ridiculously good food. Like literally one of the best meals I have ever eaten. (Can you say lobster macaroni? Duck? Short rib?)
Dancing: Lots and lots of dancing. I'm not one for dancing, but I partied like it was 1999!
|With interpretative dance too!|
|We were re-enacting our HS prom photos.|
|Goodbye, flats! You've had a good run!|
In the meantime, happy weekend, friends! And go see Jurassic Park in 3D or something because a T-REX coming at you would be all kinds of cool!
