Beautiful Weekend

What a beautiful weekend I had! Beautiful weather, beautiful bride (and groom), beautiful friends, and just an all around great time.

Saturday morning started with all the good old wedding things. Hair, makeup & mimosas followed by dresses, pictures and the biggest limo in Cincinnati. We headed to downtown Hamilton for the Bride and Groom to see each other for the first time that day. Downtown Hamilton was a nice place for pictures because we were too far from downtown Cincinnati for it to make sense for us to go all the way down there, but also gave the urbanish pictures Jenn was looking for. However, I’m not sure if anyone in Hamilton has ever seen a wedding before as we were getting honked at, cat calls out the window, etc. Now don’t get me wrong, when I see a wedding party I definitely stare a little…but not sure why all the honks and hollers were necessary… haha. I am so excited to see the professional pictures because I think their photographer really got some fun and different shots….but for now, you will have to deal with a couple of my random shots from the day. I obviously have no pictures from the ceremony since I was standing up during it, but it was so nice. From the horse and carriage entrance to the beautiful and meaningful vows everyone was very touched.

After the ceremony it was time to rock out at the reception. We danced our pants off to such CI favorites as Bon Jovi and Journey and did a lot of our usual make a circle and push random people in the middle to dance like a jackass. It was a wonderful night. Afterwards we met up in a random West Chester strip mall dive bar to continue the party. Since we were practically the only ones in there, we pretty much did whatever we wanted, including making the dj download and play Instant Pleasure not once, but twice, letting Ryan sing karaoke despite the fact there was no karaoke machine or karaoke music and download and play Jenn and Jason’s first dance song as the last song of the night. Then, a friend of the bouncer took us back to our hotel. This is the kind of service I want at a bar All the time!

Anyway, I know I’m leaving SOooo much out, but let’s just end on the note that it was a fabulous weekend. Jenn and Jason are in Jamaica this week and all of my friends have gone back to their respective states/cities..but I’m already looking forward to the next time we can all be together again! Congratulations Jenn and Jason!!
