Meredith and Joe's Wedding

Friday night was Joe and Meredith’s wedding! It was a great day! No…it was a crappy day but the wedding was awesome! Seriously, it went from pouring rain in the morning to hot and muggy later. Blah. But anyways…

After driving 20 miles for over an hour and a half I made it to the wedding with 15 minutes to spare! We grabbed some seats but JoeJoe was a bad usher and didn’t tell us where the programs were. The ceremony was beautiful and just the right amount to not feel like it was way too short but not be left wondering when it would be over. They did a ring blessing and nailed together a box with a bottle of wine and letters to each other that they will open in 25 years.

After the ceremony cocktail hour began! We chatted and drank and grabbed appetizers. The dude with the tray of something with bacon on top offered me one and then probably saw me light up at bacon and told me to take another. Good thing I did as he never came back.

We were then seated. Seriously, this is the second wedding this year where I was seated next to an empty chair. Can we make me feel more single? The good thing, however, about being seated next to an empty chair is that I get to steal their champagne AND chocolate covered strawberries 🙂 We made our dinner selections (I got chicken) and had our entree and gnocchi and salad and lots of desserts. YUM.

And then it was time to dance, dance, dance! Well, dancing got more fun as people got drunker and were more willing to dance. IE JoeJoe who became not only willing to dance but also to wear a silly hat and play with a blow up guitar…

Best feature of the wedding though was the photo booth! We got some seriously rocking (and somewhat scandalous) photo booth pics! We weren’t told until later that Joe and Meredith would be receiving digital copies of everything we took…(photos of those to be shared later once I get my hands on some digi copies.)

And at 11pm they brought out trays full of McDonalds’ cheeseburgers!

It was a really fun night and luckily Jen is always willing to lend her fiance to me to dance with, because I like to dance. Andrew rocks.

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
