kiss the bride...

this weekend was the wedding of my 'older brother' so to speak. our parents have been neighbors for 28 years (along with 4 other houses all in a row on their street), so we've known each other/grown up together our whole lives. the wedding was beautiful and  a good time had by all. 

side story: i bought my dress for the reception part months ago (found on a sale rack, 1 left, my size!) and knew that i had this bra (note: nsfw, since it's a picture of a gal in a bra), so i didn't bother to check and make sure i had 2 pieces of tape, since hey, i only remember wearing it once and it came with 6 pieces. (the side of the dress as well, making a regular strapless bra not possible.) half hour before we planned to leave, i go to get dressed, only to find i have 1 piece of tape left. oh shit. i wake dylan up from his nap, and tell him we need to go NOW to the lingerie store nearby to buy a few more pieces of tape. i need to also mention it was pouring all day, a hair nightmare. i run in, they don't sell it; sales associate tells me she thinks she's seen it somewhere else, we speed there. nope, not there either. i get home defeated, not wanting to go braless. my only option left, that was worth a shot- cut the single piece of tape in half and hope it's enough strength to support. bingo. it works! we're now 10 minutes after we were supposed to leave, i put my dress on, zip it up, and hook the little clip at the top... it pops off. seriously?! i was then standing in my dress and my mom was sewing it back on. nothing like a little pre-wedding stress. thank goodness it wasn't my wedding day.

onward to the pictures!
