Quick Update

I haven't posted in several days because I was out of town for a friends wedding. A friend and I rented a car (Dodge Avenger) for 4 days and drove to Missouri. Why drive? Because it was several hundred dollars cheaper for both of us, especially given the fact that I was going to rent a car anyway if we flew. It took about 12-13 hours and 4.5 tanks of gas total for the trip. As soon as we arrived my friend's fiance had glasses of wine waiting for us (he's a keeper)! The first full day we were there time was precious. As soon as we woke up we had to get ready for the bridal luncheon and as soon as we were back at her house it was time to get ready for the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. The second day my friend had a limo (stretch range rover) pick us up at 8:30 am for hair and makeup. Several mimosas later the photographer arrived and we were in our dresses ready for our close-ups. The wedding began at 5 and was finished by 5:30. We took a full 45 minutes of pictures (in the Missouri heat) and were shuttled off to the reception by 6:30 ish. The ceremony was beautiful, I think the bride did an excellent job putting everything together. She looked amazing and the two of them together make a great pair. The food was really good, wine was flowing like a river, and everyone danced the night away. My only complaint of the night was that the weren't enough slow dances. I know she probably asked the DJ not to play any on purpose because several in attendance weren't matched up but I wish they could have had that kind of intimate moment together. Driving back was uneventful thank goodness and I'm glad to be home.
