a wedding...

saturday's wedding was beautiful; high school sweethearts finally getting married. there were tears, lots of them. when they walked in the hall-tears. first dance-tears. the opening speech-tears. their speeches to each other-tears. their parents speeches to them-more tears. goodness me, luckily all the speeches were at the beginning and i was able to dry myself off and enjoy the rest of the night. and enjoy the night i (well, we, everyone) did. it was like a high school reunion with fancy dresses. the food was delicious, the drinks were flowing (hello whiskey, bailey's, vodka 7's and white wine), and the dance moves were crazy.

i have to say, the opening speech was pretty funny, too. they made jokes about how M (the bride) is delivering babies and saving lives on a daily basis (she's doing her residency) and then there's J (the groom) who's just a gym teacher haha. they also told J that if he needs to call in sick on monday, there were about 40 supply teachers in the room that could cover him (meaning that a tonne of our friends went to teachers college, and pretty much no one has jobs yet, regardless of graduating 2-3 years ago). then they got serious and said beautiful things about them, and the fact that it was never 'if' they would get married, but 'when'. like i said, laughter and tears.

weddings are the bomb, i tell ya. now it's just a question of who's next and when?!
