Last night my friend Christine got married to her long time man, Mike. They have been dating since our freshman year in high school.. so about 12 years! Christine and I have known each other since 4th grade so she is certainly a friend life-long friend although we don’t hang out nearly as often as I’d like. Anyway, they got hitched last night. They did a private ceremony and then had everyone join them for cocktails and hor’douvers. (diet coke w/lemon for this momma please!!) My hubbs sure enjoyed the open bar – he doesn’t drink often since I can’t drink but last night he certainly kicked back a few yuenglings!
Christine looked absolutely beautiful.. too bad I don’t have any photos to post. Yea, I know, no photos.. not even a photo of my hubbs and I all dressed up.. not even a photo of me and the bride.. not even a photo of, well nothing. I’m angry at myself for not using my camera but I knew when I decided to take my little point and shoot that it wouldn’t get used. I love my D-SLR but it is a pain to take it everywhere so last night I left it at home, big mistake on my part but too late now!
Congratulations Christine & Mike – you 2 are finally husband & wife!! Enjoy your honeymoon in Punta Cana!
Their wedding makes me want to get married again. Steven and I were planning a big wedding, then learned we were pregnant with Gavin and plans changed quickly. We decided to go to Hawaii and get married there, just the 2 of us and a beautiful beach. Well, it rained the entire time we were there so our beautiful beach ceremony turned into a gazebo ceremony. We did have a reception/pig roast later in the summer with family and friends but it didn’t really feel like a ‘wedding’ in some aspects. I’d love to renew our vows, wear my first wedding dress I bought that is currently shoved under my bed, have my dad walk me down the aisle and celebrate our love with family and friends.. maybe someday..
I hope everyone has a great week.. mine is jam-packed with appointments, trainings, conferences and oh, a brand new desk that will be waiting for me in my office tomorrow morning.. can’t wait =)
