Stacey and Frank’s wedding

Elena and I were in a wedding on Saturday. Here’s the quick run down.

Highlights:
1. Stacey and Frank got married.
2. It was supposed to rain but didn’t.
3. The doves in the dove release did not die. (Dead dove – do not eat.)
4. Elena looked really cute and had a fun time at the salon getting ready.
5. I gave a toast and it didn’t suck.
6. There was a lot of good food and candy and cupcakes and cookies. I’m actually upset I didn’t bring more home with me.
7. It was a really well timed event. Pictures before the ceremony, straight to the reception after, eating by 6:30.
8. Elena got to dance. We took her to a wedding last year that was running late and she didn’t get to even eat, let alone dance, and that made me kind of sad.
9. It was a really fun weekend. I hung out with old friends and new and had a generally great time.

Lowlights:
1. Being in a wedding, being pregnant, being out of town ish, and being responsible for the flower girl is kind of exhausting. I almost left Elena alone in the hotel lobby by accident at one point.
2. I’m only now sort of recovering from bring tired, three days later. See #1.
3. It was really hot.
4. I almost didn’t get my dress zipped! I was at Stacey’s house with Elena and I just couldn’t get it. I asked her for help and she tried but she couldn’t do it. (Reasonable, considering she is 3.) So I threw on a wrap and went to the hotel and Juli did it for me because she works miracles.
5. I couldn’t drink much.
6. I only took like 7 pictures.
7. I don’t know how to bustle a dress and have failed as a bridesmaid. Fortunately I am almost 37 and will probably not need to worry about bustling ever again.

Obviously the highlights outweighed the lowlights; you could have stopped at 1 of the highlights and that would be true.

I’ll post the photographer’s pictures separately when they are done. I only took like 7. EDIT: I lied. My dad took some pictures. I put them on the Facebooks.
