So Philly. I know you’ve been on the edge of your seats anticipating what was surely the most ridiculous weekend ever. So I won’t hold back any longer. I now present you with the epic tale of Lucie and Justin’s wedding weekend:
Thursday: Well the adventures started around eleven in the morning at the Ontario airport when our itineraries weren’t showing up on the kiosk, yeah that’s always nice. After that little hiccup Matt, Katrina and myself made our way to the airport bar to wait for our flight. So we made flight numero uno to Salt Lake City and it was at this point I realized that I had left my brain in California. How do I know? Well as were descending on Salt Lake I look out the window and tell Matt “Wow there’s a lot of water here”, Matt just looked at me dumbfoundley and was like “Well yeah, look at what city we’re in”…I looked back not getting it until I said “Umm Salt…LAKE…oooooooh.” Yeah I’m a smart one. So besides that we made it to Philly around eleven at night and had a nice little adventure driving to our hotel in the middle of nowhere (aka Malvern, PA). And to top it all off there was traffic!? And lots of it! At midnight! On a Thursday! Come on PA, help a driver out and stop with the construction! Anyhoo, we made it to the hotel fine and had some mini bar drinks and had the most fabulous of sleep, whew.
Friday: Basically the day consisted of hanging around in the room, watching bad television until it was time to head to the rehearsal. Katrina, Matt and I were the first to arrive at the rehearsal location so of course we had to take some fun pictures to pass the time…
[And hilarious insert, I went to the front desk of the hotel earlier in the day to ask how late the bar was open and the woman responded “Until closing.” Yes she honestly said that. I continued to look at her and was like “Which is til when?”, and she said “Oh hold on, let me check,” silly lady. Seriously I think she may have already hit up the bar, haha. ]
One of my good friend from college actually lives in Philly so her and her boyfriend came to visit, as did one of Matt’s college friends. And we all had a grand ole time drinking, hanging out and just being awesome, haha…
all ready to go!
Sunday: This day really went by too quickly. Got up earlyish to have brunch with everyone before heading back to Philly. Matt and I took a little excursion to the city where we ended up seeing Liberty Hall from afar and somehow ending up in New Jersey! Yeah it was an adventure alright. Eventually we made it back to the airport where our flight was uber delayed and by the time our connecting flight came we had to sprint through the Dallas airport to make it. And make it we did. And it was back home we went, happy for the married couple and exhausted beyond belief…
and that my friends was my first “grown up” wedding* :)
(all scheduled hollywood updates will return tomorrow…)
*and just to clarify, by “grown up” I mean I was actually in the wedding (not counting my tenure as a flower girl) and I’m really close to the bride, two big steps to grown upism, haha.
