You might think, given my staunch support of my single status, that I wouldn’t be into weddings, but in fact I LOVE GOING TO WEDDINGS!
There’s nothing much better than watching a couple celebrate their love with all their loved ones around them.
K&B’s wedding was no exception.
The groom got choked up and I INSTANTLY started to cry.
Thankfully I got a packet of tissues from another wedding guest, so I was prepared for the WATERWORKS.
My dear friend Michelle officiated the wedding and she did an amazing job of knitting together the story of the lovely couple with their appreciation of the family and friends who attended their wedding.
Personally, I was THRILLED to just be out of the Bay Area, breathing the fresh air of Yosemite.
It also helped that I was on painkillers and muscle relaxants for my injured neck so not only was it a beautiful wedding, I was also high as a kite for it.
I was blissfully happy and that’s the EXACT state that you should be in for a wedding!
And GOD BLESS THE BRIDE for NOT throwing the bouquet.
There were two – count them TWO – single women at the wedding.
Me and a lovely guest who flew in all the way from Boston.
I actually turned to the other single woman and said, “So, I’ll arm wrestle you for the bouquet. . .”
She looked aghast.
“You can have it,” she replied.
“I’m joking,” I told her. “Last thing I want is a bridal bouquet.”
What an awkward moment that would have been, no?
