Wedding weekend

This weekend I...

went to a wedding!

At a pizza place!

The couple has been together for 7 years, and after a conversation they had while decorating the Christmas tree, they planned the whole wedding in just under a month. She looked gorgeous, the wedding itself was short and sweet and the food was fantastic. (It helps when the pizza place uses local ingredients!) In a big fail I didn't take pictures except for the two you might have seen on instagram... one was a plate of pizza and beer and the other was this
The Mister and I played some air hockey at the reception. (How is that for a cool reception?!) It was a very close game. I won. 

Confession: I really love weddings. My favorite part? The ceremony. I really love watching when two people are professing their love for each other and committing themselves to one another for life. This couple chose to have friends perform the ceremony and they wrote their own vows/promises to each other. They had some humorous ones as well as some heartfelt, serious ones. 

My second favorite part? Cake. 

What is your favorite part of weddings?

I actually don't like going to weddings...but I'd be more inclined to like them if more of them incorporated air hockey. ;)

That sounds like an awesome wedding!

I like cocktail hour best.

Air hockey at a reception?! GENIUS! I love that idea.

I wholeheartedly agree with the ceremony. I think it says a ton about the couple. I once went to a rather religious wedding ceremony where the couple went up to the front of the church and had personal prayer time after they stated their vows and exchanged rings. It was so personal and soo wonderful!
