Wedding Wednesday

And the last installment of our wedding.

As I've mentioned my bridesmaids were family (sisters, cousins and sisters-in-law), but it meant so much to have these girls there with me, some of them I've been friends with since I was two years old.

"Hey guys look back at me, I know its awkward but it will make a great picture" ... and it did!

Our beautiful city. 

Let's keep it real. My wedding dress was beautiful, but damn it was huge and tight and a lot to carry around. At one point I decided to unzip it and lay down on the floor of the ceremony tent. Spencer came to blow me kisses and then quickly told me to get off my ass.

So I smashed cake in his face and thought I was the most funny person in the world.

A good family friend of ours happens to be an insanely talented singer, in an INCREDIBLE band (whose CD just came out, go out buy it, Isles by Wild Belle) sang "At Last" during the reception and I'm pretty sure the entire room went silent. This girl's voice is like heaven.

And now... the after party. Long story short, our wedding took place on a little peninsula in downtown Chicago that at one point was used as a private airport... until our corrupt mayor had it torn up in the middle of the night and made into a park. Hence, our wedding being there. However, the old terminal building is still standing and that's where our after party was.

The Spazmatics performed until all hours of the night.


And Spencer and I danced until every single person went home.

It was truly one of the best nights of our lives. I'm sure there will be many times in our life that will top this night (you know like birth of children etc :)) but wow, this was a good one. I married a really incredible human in front of every other human I love. What more could you ask for?

If there's something I left off that you're curious about, let me know, otherwise, I hope you all enjoyed this adsurdly, long, drawn out, look into our wedding.
