Well, the villa is in shambles. Decorations and empty cups and favors and wet bathing suits and flowers everywhere. Sign of a great destination wedding, right?
Nicole and Isaacâ€™s wedding was so much fun. Everything was perfect. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and the reception was spot-on â€“ we dined poolside, in the open air, listening to tropical birds and crashing ocean waves.
Some standout moments: the personal, funny vows; the epic playlist that included many Britney Spears songs (Nicoleâ€™s favorite); and the amazing vegan spread and wedding cake. Oh, and I fainted during ceremony. It was so hot out, and I was standing with my knees locked and so still that my vision starting to swim, I blacked out, and collapsed into a chair. Probably only the third time that Iâ€™ve ever fainted. Thankfully, the bride and groom were facing the other way and didnâ€™t notice! I feel fine now, but man â€“ donâ€™t mess with that tropical heat.
I recovered, photographs were taken, and then we danced and hot tubbed the night away. A very beautiful wedding, indeed.
Up early with my friend Heather:
NOT a margarita!
In the blender:
And a peanut butter sandwich on the side.
Well, everyone else is still asleep, so Heather and I are just catching up on work and staring at this beautiful sceneâ€¦ I would be content to just move into this villa and never, ever leave.
As a member of a bridal party, have you ever done something embarrassing â€“ like fainted or tripped? During my friend Sarahâ€™s wedding, I got a nosebleed in the middle of the church. I never get nosebleeds. Not a good look for beautiful wedding photographs!
