The Blur

A weekend crammed with weddings - the first for our friends Matt and Emily at Astra on the 14th floor of the Design and Decoration Building on 3rd Avenue in Manhattan.  It was an intimate black tie affair, with cocktails on the balcony.  (Fancy!)

The view from our balcony on the D&D Bldg.

Sunday night was the wedding of one of my college roommates, Mary, and her now-husband Tim.  This was a wedding with countless tables of loved ones and laughter. 

Me and Chris at Mary's wedding.  Insulin pump tucked discreetly into my bra.  :)

As a bride-to-be, I view weddings with more of a window-shopping eye than I ever have before.  Each DJ or band is enjoyed and then Chris and I whisper to one another, "Should we go talk to them about our wedding?"  We kept watching the photographer and noticing how professionally and efficiently she was handling the wedding.  She seemed terrific - to the point where I accosted her in the bathroom as she was washing her hands.

"Hi."

She looked at me.  "Hi!"

"Listen, I know you're busy with this wedding tonight, but my fiance and I are getting married on May 18th next year and we're really impressed with your work tonight."  I grabbed a paper towel, doing my best to not look like a bathroom stalker. 

"Oh, thanks!  I have my business cards here with me, if you'd like one."

"Would love one!"

Fantastic.  Chris and I spoke with her briefly and took her business card.  Weddings have become one-stop-shopping for both a celebration with friends and potential vendors for our own wedding.

And this afternoon, my mom and I are going to a few bridal shops so I can start trying on wedding dresses.  :D 

I. 

Can't. 

Wait.

Oooohh!!!! Wedding dress shopping! have fun!

How exciting! Shopping for a dress is soooo much fun! I just started myself.

We hired our videographer after we saw them at a wedding we went to. They were awesome.

I hated the photographer we hired though. He was mean, ugly, and stopped up the bridesmaid's procession to fix his camera after his flash dropped off.

I think you are living almost every little girl's dream! Have fun shopping!

So you get her card in the bathroom and you and Chris talk with her.

What was Chris doing in the ladies room?

LOL

Bennet - HA! I forgot to mention that the girl and I walked out of the bathroom and THEN talked with Chris.

Man, missing that one detail changes the whooole story. ;)

I hope your dress shopping went well. Can't wait to hear about it.

I'm glad the bulk of the weddings are out of the way.

Congratulations on ur wedding! I love weddings. You are going to be a beautiful bride. Just curious, will you wear your trusty pump on the day of ur wedding?

hello thats fun to shop for the wedding. I just have civil wedding and not experience of having a big one. Anyway i already subscribe your blog. I came from blogcatalog.

IT's funny, I just saw Angela Kinsie (From The Office) on David Letterman and she was wearing the same dress. As I was watching it, I thought, "Hey, that's Kerri's dress!" Too funny.
