The season is in full bloom

Wedding season, that is.

Last Saturday, we attended 1 of 12 weddings this year. Yes, 1 of 12.

It was the wedding of my freshman year college roommate/dear friend from high school.

And it was one heckuva bash.

Great way to kick off wedding-extravaganza-everyone-and-their-mom-is-getting-married-2011.

Some highlights included:

1). Purple flowers everywhere. So gorg. Couldn't handle it.

2). Glimmering sunlight shining so BRIGHTLY through the amazing stain glass while the couple said their vows. I think it was God's way of showing he was blessing the marriage. :)

3). The bride and mother of the bride's high-end designer gowns. Absolutely breath-taking. They were walking pieces of art.

4). Catching up with pals I haven't seen in 5 years. Good for the soul.

5). The way the groom looked at his bride as he gave the most thoughtful, romantic toast in wedding history.

6). Both grandmas cutting a serious rug on the dance floor.

7). Me and a super fun friend obnoxiously starting a conga line.

8). Going out to IHOP at 2:30 in the morning and witnessing a full-on brawl. No seriously, a guy punched a girl in the face. Tables and syrup were then thrown. (Ok, so this wasn't a highlight, but I had to share!)
