This weekend’s wedding was held at a Santa Monica beach resort – there’s really nothing more beautiful than the ocean as the backdrop for a wedding. The only problem was the cold California breeze.
The groomsmen are all Matt’s friends from Davidson. I drool over a man in a black tux….
The bride was breathtaking!!!
The girls warmed up with cocktails while the boys posed for pics. I had an amaretto sour and forgot how much I love them!!!
I think all of the women were soo happy to get inside and warm up. The ballroom was gorgeous…sometimes I feel like hotel ballrooms can be big and cold, but this one was cozy and intimate.
The guests feasted on crab cakes while the bride was sewn back into her dress – the entire zipper ripped when the groomsmen tried to pick her up for a beach photo. It was probably every girl’s worst nightmare, but the bride appeared sooo calm and collected when she made her entrance.
I chose the halibut for my dinner. It was nice to have something light after a lot of appetizers, but I thought the flavor was really lacking on this dish. I traded some bites for Matt’s short ribs, which were much better.
This is the first wedding I’ve been to with a chocolate cake, and I have to say, I was quite disappointed when the inside was revealed during the cutting. The banana chunks and chocolate between the layers was good though, and I ate the icing off of two pieces. You’d never know chocolate was lurking underneath this beauty…
The men took the dancing very seriously…I think they were all drenched.
Did I already mention that this weekend was a blast? I’m pretty much obsessed with weddings and I’m so pumped I have two more to attend in the next few months.
Until then, I return to my spot on the couch, wrapped in a blanket because it’s rainy and 50 outside. I went to a spinning class after work and then hit up Whole Foods for much needed groceries and salads for dinner. I’m beginning to get giddy over the fact that my internship is ending in five short weeks. I’m off to write cover letters. Happy Monday Night:)
