The other cool thing is that I was part of the "Mantourage" as a groomswoman. I was tickled pink about it. And hey, I have been a bride three times, but this is the first time that I am a groomsman for anyone. (Or a bridesmaid for that matter!) Because of that, I tried to do my best Marlene Dietrich (or at least Lauren Bacall) impersonation just for the ocassion.
Sooooo, first thing in the morning, I went to my hairdresser to get my hair done since I am a klutz with a hair dryer. (Note to self, do I even own one that works at this point?) Much to my delight, I found him dressed as a pirate to keep with the theme of the day.
Nothing like starting your day by getting your hair done by a pirate, I say. It's good luck. Especially on a Halloween wedding day.
The wedding was lovely, and we had a blast. I took the camera with me and, lo and behold, thanks to Bonnie, there are even pictures of me in the resulting album. Because I was standing with the bridal party at the church, there was no way that I could take pics during the ceremony, so I handed her the camera. She did a bang-up job, and now the pics are up.
At the reception, the rest of the groom's attendants decided to give the couple a surprise (we did run it by the groom at the last minute just to be sure it would be okay). ballistabob, troyfish, Doug and yours truly did a sword bridge for the happy couple to enter the room. I don't have pics of that yet, but there were a number of people (including the professional photog), with cameras so I will post a link as soon as someone posts those up.
And did I mention that we all processed into the hall to the tune of "The Addams Family"?
Awesomeness of awesomeness.
In the end, all I have to say is that it is a wonderful thing when your friends find that perfect person and they start their lives together.
Here's to you crazy kids! And here's the link to the album!
May every year be a Halloween year to you, and may your married life be full of love and laughter! You inspire us all!
