Wedding, Iowa Style
Good thing I was wearing black or they might have mistaken us for the bride and groom!
A diverse group--from L-R: Hispanic, Scandinavian, African-American, Persian, Taiwanese
My friend J was the first of my close female classmates to tie the knot. We traveled with a group to NW Iowa. The drive itself was pretty exciting, I'll have more posts to share on that later.
Some thoughts on weddings:
1) they made over $1000 auctioning off their garter! She must have rich/good/drunk friends or she is more popular than I thought
2) maybe you should rethink the huge tattoo on your back for your friend's strapless bridesmaid dress
3) the father who married them didn't include the, "You may now kiss the bride." I didn't realize this was the highlight until we missed it. I kind of wondered, "So are they married now?"
