Jessica and Jason got hitched!

I travelled east this past weekend to attend the wedding of my dear friends, Jessica and Jason. I spent a good portion of last week prepping and sewing for this event, since I was assigned the paramount role of garter-maker. The weather was sweltering and the humidity was borderline oppressive (as is customary for any southern wedding, I suppose), but everything was absolutely beautiful and a good time was had by all!

The strung-out 1980′s bride on the Nash-vegas strip (circa last month’s bachelorette party)…

(Just for the record, she's not really strung out.)

Morphed into a gorgeous bride…

The garters…

Brother and sister of the bride…

I didn’t get any great shots of the actual ceremony, but all the personal and hand-made touches around the grounds were really fantastic…

 

Two of my favorite people…

The bustle was a major pain in the arse, but the process made for some very pretty pictures…

And then came the dancing…

Yep, that's her brother...probably one of the funniest moments of the night :)

While those crazy kids were dancing the night away, I was cuddling baby Liam…

And then came the 15 seconds of fame for my garters…

I never tire of a bouquet toss photo and the aggressive, preparatory stances of the ladies in waiting…

The winners…

They had the most vulgar vehicle decorations I’ve ever seen! No innocent balloons or beer cans for these two…

And then they were off to the Ritz in Hawaii…

Congratulations, Jessica and Jason!!!

  1. Lively event! You and Jessica have facial expressions akin…..no wonder you’re buds. Clever photos! Will she forgive you?

    What’s your next adventure?

    • People are constantly saying that we look like sisters, and we do have similar mannerisms and movements as well. At the reception, I caught several of her friends (who didn’t know me) staring at/watching me and then blurting out “wow…you look and act so much like Jessica- it’s so weird!” I don’t know what our next adventure will be, but I’m hoping that she’ll forgive me for that first pic! If it disappears in the next week or so, you’ll know she wasn’t happy about it ;)

  2. Lmao at the pic of her brother and her dancing ‘cheek to cheek’! Also, i’m hoping they didn’t get pulled over with all the explicit verbage on their car! Too funny– I would have died of embarrassment :).

      • That’s because she didn’t read it…didn’t even really see it until we got down the road. When she realized my parents and her parents had seen it she was mortified.

      • Jason!! It made me so happy to see you here on my blog. That is hilarious – I guess she was too caught up in the moment to pay attention ;) I was standing beside Newt when he read the “Bang Me” balloon and it was one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a while…I have retold that story a hundred times. Remind me to tell you and do my impersonation the next time I see you.
