Here comes the Bride.

This is how it went, and I’m SO not kidding you…

“I now pronounce you Husband and Wife.

You may now kiss your Schmoo”

The moment I saw her, she totally took my breath away. She cried all the way down the aisle and she was absolutely one of the most beautiful brides I’ve ever seen.

Carrie and Jacob are now officially Mr. And Mrs. Pants!!!!

Adam and I had an *amazing* time in Georgia this weekend. I don’t even know where to start. It would have been special enough just to be at the wedding, but it was all the more special because of the time we got to spend with AM, Drew and Joanna.

Rarely do you see three siblings (and a sister-in-law) who have so much love and respect and affection for each other. It was so good to see them all together and to share that time with them :)

Speaking of siblings, I finally got to meet Cathy!!!!

AND I GOT TO SEE HEJ!!! AND MEET HIGH ENERGY JOHN!

We sat next to John during the Ceremony and as he extended his hand and introduced himself, I excitedly busted out with, “Oh!!! You’re JENNY’S Husband!!!”

With a slightly baffled look on his face, the poor man replied, “Oh. It’s been a while since we’ve met. Nice to see you!” (or soemthing like that) and I said, “No, we’ve never actually met, I’ve just seen you on the INTERNET!”

I don’t think I freaked him out TOO much. Especially since he came back with, “Yes, I am one of the High Energies!”

HIGH ENERGY JOHN!

So, a few things that *might* have happened at said wedding:

  • Adam and I *may* have almost missed the ceremony entirely. If someone gives you directions to a place you have no idea how to get to, and then said person later leaves you a voicemail shortly before the event you are trying to get to, we have learned that it is in your best interest to CHECK THE MESSAGE.
  • I uh, *may* have gotten a bit drunky-drunk. This caused me to 1) yell across tables (“HIGH ENERGY JOHN, IS THAT *SUSHI*?!!?!?!?!?!”), 2) nearly assault the groom in an attempt to congratulate him and 3) tell the Bride repeatedly that their first dance was FAN-FUCKIN-TASTIC! (which is totally, totally was. DISCO-FABULOUS!) Whatever. It was open Bar. What else are weddings and open bars FOR?!!?!?
  • It is entirely possible that I experienced a wardrobe malfunction. Or two. I’m not sure. We’d have to consult the videotape. This photo, however, is a strong indication that it was entirely possible:

    Strapless dresses may be cute, but watch the F out!

  • I may have ditched the cocktail hour to seam my Ribbed Lace Bolero in the car.

    I KNOW YOU’RE NOT JUDGING ME!

  • Three martini glasses worth of Shrimp an’ Grits may have ended up in my tummy-tum. SOOOOOO GOOOD! Just sayin’

It was a great weekend :)

Here are more pics of the bolero:

The pattern is the Ribbed Lace Bolero by Kelly Maher. It was knit with two balls of Nashua Handknits Ivy, a wool/alpaca blend with a hint of silvery tinsel. It’s sooooo nice! The yarn has a beautifully soft hand and a subtle sparkle, perfect for warm holiday knits! It should have only taken me a few days (I started last Sunday), but I messed up the (STUPIDLY EASY) lace pattern a couple times and had to rip back. In the end though, with HEAPS of sheer determination, I finished (almost) in time to wear it to the wedding (see above seaming pic). The seaming is shit, but whatever. It’s DONE! :)

Oh, and who’s that in the pic with me up there?

Why, it’s PETEY!!!!

Adam insisted I put his pic up because he thought some of you guys might be missing crazy Petey a little :) (and as loveable as he is, he IS certifiable!!! The dog busted out one of AM’s second story windows while we were at the wedding, jumped off the roof and had a grand ol’ time wandering around the neighborhood. We think he was looking for his momma, who abandoned him to go to a stupid wedding.)

dang, is this post long enough? :-P

Catch y’all later :)

    Awesomeness all around and Petey to boot
    whoop whoop

  15. Courtney Says:

    I was so glad to meet you at last in “real life.” Your bolero is gorgeous, and those shoes to die for. I might’ve been a little bit tipsy. Perhaps. I don’t always have wine-purple teeth and I don’t always slur my words but I do always have that accent. Hope to see you again around these parts before long!

  16. laura Says:

    hahahaha you were sewing seams for something you were wearing at the weding the day of. I DID TOO FOR MY MOMMY’S WEDDING.

    and lara, if that’s the worst thing ya did at a wedding, don’t worry!! :-P seemed like a crazy bunch anyway :-)

  17. Cathy Says:

    Yay Lara! It was so fun to meet you – I wish we could have talked more but I was busy with schmoo-wedding responsibilities.

    I agree with Courtney about your shoes! Fab-U-lous!

  18. Carrie Says:

    Um, how cute is that shrug? I totally didn’t realize you’d knit it. Duh. You looked damn hot! and you were the cutest drunk EVER. For reals. I’m so happy that you and Adam were at our wedding — I had such an awesome time. YAY!

    p.s. we have a lot of leftover booze. y’all should come back. or maybe we can bring the booze up to NYC. ha!
