It’s real. It’s legal. It’s over.
It was GREAT.
Guys, we had the most fun this weekend at Olivia’s wedding. I have come to the conclusion (based on exactly one experience) that all-girl weddings are more fun than hetero. I only say this selfishly from a bridesmaid’s perspective: this ish was so organized, so emotional, so thoughtful, and there were no stinky boys trying to get a groom high before the ceremony or wandering around where they shouldn’t be. Getting ready with the brides’ moms, sisters, friends, and flower girls was maybe one of the most fun days I’ve had all year.
I’m also biased because I really love my sisters and I really love weddings. Our other sister got married last summer in a very different wedding from Olivia’s and I had just as much fun planning and celebrating Emily and Ben as I did Olivia and Katie. So, there’s that. This weekend, though, was just wonderfully heartfelt, gorgeous start to finish, and so much fun.
Beck was a flower girl! She scored about a 4/10 on being pleasant and doing what she was supposed to do, and a 10/10 on cuteness. The pictures will reveal her true colors on the day of; but we gave her a pass due to excessive stimulation and too-short naps. Katie’s brothers and our husbands were wonderfully helpful, the music was great, the food was healthy and delicious, the champagne was endless, and the late-night dance playlist was killer.
I can’t stop saying good things. If a naptime for the grownups had been built in it would have been an actual perfect day. 99% isn’t bad, though.
These pictures are from my phone, Jay’s phone, and my brother-in-law’s phone. A BIL who answered “welcs” when I thanked him for the pictures. Is this a thing now? Please let’s not make welcs a thing.
Highlights include sliced steak with chimichurri, a thousand paper cranes folded by Katie as a surprise for Olivia, a bridesmaid’s toast that was a rewrite of Hamilton’s Satisfied (maybe my fav part of the whole night, embarrassment and all), popsicles and smores late in the evening, and stunning view of the mountains even though we were only 15 minutes away from downtown.
It was magical. To the brides!
