THANKS for not leaving me.
I’m not either! For all of the sarcasm and cynicism and “weddings are way too expensive and it should be about the marriage,” I’m SO glad we spent money on a REAL photographer (who gave us a killer deal, no less). She was worth way more than what we paid, and I’d argue that it was one of the best things we spent money on for our entire wedding.
Other than the booze, obvs.
Three months and 1 day ago, Jay and I made things totes legit so that our dogs wouldn’t be embarrassed of us anymore. It was the best day, and since I know you’re not sick of hearing about it yet we’re going to look at some pictures together, ok?
Actually, we got them two weeks ago.
Then we realized that there were about 9,000, and spent several nights scrolling through them on the couch, drinking wine, and remembering funny details about our wedding. We’re still fully obsessed with the day, and are SO STINKING EXCITED that we have proof that we actually got married.
Besides our memories and marriage license, but whatevs. We have pictures of that too!**
…was a line from the father of the bride speech I heard on Friday night.
It was a good one, and I hope he doesn’t mind that I stole it. He KILLED his speech (as my friend Katie said), and captured his daughter’s love of the stage (she’s an actress, that girl) as well as he captured the love she has for his new son-in-law.
Jay’s best friend Rory got married this weekend to HIS best friend, Jordan.
They. Are. Awesome. Great friends of ours even though they live SO FAR AWAY IN LA, wonderful human beings in general, and in love in a very inspiring way. We want to copy their relationship all the time.
In case you were just DYING to know what we got everyone for wedding gifts…..here it is.
In honor of my 1-month anniversary of what is meant to be the hardest year of my life.
IT’S AWFUL GUYS. Not really. I mean, it’s awful because we’re still grownups and have to pay bills and stuff, but other than that we kind of like being married.
You could pin this, if you’d like.
Are you sick yet of hearing about our wedding?
I’m sorry, if so. I’m getting back on a good cooking sched for us, promise.
But for today, let’s talk wedding hair! I did it by myself.
Now, by did it myself I meant that I practiced it once at home and it was great, then on my wedding day I got shaky and weird and then I had 3 different people help me with my hair. And then approximately 3 more people doused me with hairspray because it was POURING rain while we were getting ready so….better safe than sorry?
Such hope involved with the word, isn’t there? Unlike, say, Monday. Ugh.
Anyway, back to wedding stuff! Two weeks ago we were in the mountains getting ready to tie. the. knot. Now we’re just old and married and boring.
A lot happened. Mainly, there was a llama walk up at High Hampton Inn, where we got married, mere moments before our rehearsal dinner. Is that a sentence you EVER thought I’d type?
I PROMISE we’re going to get back to the food stuff oh-so-soon. I’ve been cooking up a storm for you guys, so….wait for it. We’ll get back to new recipes tomorrow, fingers crossed, and the wedding deets will wane. I’ve got a lot to tell you, though!
