My good (in my dreams) friend Roserunner just did a really concise post to describe her awesome weekend, and in an effort to make my posts more like posts and less like books I am using her as inspiration to do the same. And not discuss at all how much I am freaking out about the 50K to save space.
Friday night: Giant marshmallows
Saturday: Nicole and Mike's Wedding!
Hotel napkin crossword: check
Demand for prize for completing it: check
Taking pictures with crossword, wine, and MOH in the bridal hot tub: check
Being a totally normal bride: check
Oh my god how amazingly beautiful is this bride??? Seriously????
My sister does my hair for every wedding, including my own. She's awesome like that.
My sister finding out the cake was red velvet. My family and weddings are two of my favorite things in the universe so when they are combined into one I'm pretty much in heaven.
Husband of the bridesmaid duties
The ceremony overlooked these falls. Gorgeous.
A woman escorted me down the aisle - a first for me.
The bride and her parents - I need more synonyms for beautiful.
Chuppah....almost blew into the falls but it was all good.
Left to Right - my sister, Darcy, John, Carolyn, obvi, Casi
Sexy pose...or something
The above photo is a re-creation of the below photo.
This shows why the bridesmaids had to hold the chuppah.
My stepfather, Vince, hard at work on the photographs.
Darcy, Mom and me and the cake
Father of the bride and father of the groom...check out the hats.....enough said
Best DJ ever! She did my wedding and my friend Katylin's. Might be a little obsessed with her. Seriously if you are getting married in the western NY area email me and I'll hook you up.

No wedding is complete without a kickline
When I tell people I take my dancing seriously....I mean it
If you live in an area with a Wegmans you can appreciate the ingenious favors/placecards: Wegmans black and white cookies with each guest's name and table number. Incredible. Enjoyed both on the shuttle and, for some, for breakfast.
The next day - massive amounts of meat at Dinosaur BBQ
How we felt after eating - aka why I am a vegetarian
Saturday before the wedding: I did 6 miles in the state park the wedding took place in . The first mile was straight uphill.
Saturday at the wedding: 20 minutes of lacing a bride into a corset (upper body work) and four hours of dancing
Monday: 3 mile easy run
I need to save all my energy for the 50k! Oops I said I wasn't going to talk about that!
