Katie in her huge heels stumbling across the gravel carpark.
Marielle and the bridesmaids. As you can see, she looked beautiful.
Well, the wedding's been and gone and it was a lot of fun. I hadn't thought it would be different at all, but it is, going to the wedding of one of your peers and not just older siblings or distant relatives or people at your church. Maybe because you can't help but think 'what if it were me up there'! I must say, yay for being single and unattached because the thought of getting married now is terrifying.
The service was at St Andrew's church, and was really nice. Basically everyone was smiling compulsively for an hour or two. The reception dinner was only for family and the bridal party, so my group of friends went out for dinner to Valentino's where I tried my first cocktail... and, ominously, liked it a little too much. :) Had the most delicious ravioli I've ever tried. Then it was out to Rangiora and the reception venue where we listened to speeches, wandered around a random little museum the venue owner has attached to the hall, danced and socialised. Home by 1am. 'Twas nice. And now I am off to church for the carol service.
