I went to a wedding last night! I hate weddings but this is one I've been waiting for for a long time.
My good buddy of about 8 years was single for as long as I knew him but during that time I knew he had a long time crush on a girl. After ten years of crushing and blushing he finally made his move and won her heart!
The event was a small 50s themed church wedding and it was so cute. The bride even requested the guests wear 50s attire. I'm not a 50s fan but you know I couldn't pass up a chance to dress up.
The bride was breathtaking. She's a porcelain beauty who was clearly born in the wrong era.
Her gorgeous dress was a handmade Etsy find.
The pic below:
Years ago we all used to be in a band called Boxtree - I played bass by the way. It was a pretty mediocre indie-style band but we had fun doing what we did and towards the end, we started getting better, cleaner and tighter. Everyone moved off for school or just going with the flows of 20-something life changes so the band was over.
Whenever we're all together in one place we call it a Boxtree reunion and threaten to play a show.
No, we're not actually going to do that.
We're posing for a photographer in front of us and we're missing two members in the pic here. I can't wait to see the pics he took of use giving serious looks though the alter candles. Perfect for an album cover.
The last time we all had a pic together was at my wedding reception five years ago.
It's funny seeing the difference just 5 years makes when you're young: weight gain, weight loss, eyesight gone bad, hair loss... but we're all still very awesome people.
And this is my husband eating a sparkler.
Wearing: Vintage Lane Bryant dress, cheap bolero from eBay, 60s gloves.
Side note: I gave my gloves to the bride. She said she liked them and wanted to wear gloves so I gave her mine. It was a sacrifice I was more than happy to make since we're too broke to give decent wedding presents!
