Weekend review: Same love

I recently made a comment to a friend that I felt like a wedding should be epic and they said ‘No, weddings aren’t meant to be epic.’ And I countered with ‘If it’s going to cost me $15,000 (and that’s on the shy side of festivities), the day better be pretty damn epic.’

This month, I’ve been in 2 weddings and while they were both a beautiful testament to love, they were completely different. All the way from the brides down to the shenanigans. Both featured lots of dancing, laughing, and fun pictures, but it can be said (without a doubt) that this past weekend was an epic wedding.

Cue the iPhoneography!

Sam & Mesha’s big day took place in Gaithersburg, Maryland up on a wee farm with a beautiful old barn as the venue. Fairy lights, candles, and burlap made the decorations classic and rustic. But of course, the day started outside of the barn with the wedding. I was honored to be a bridesmaid, but somewhere along the way, my phone was passed off and I was lucky enough to snag a few ceremony photos.

Here’s Sam’s dad giving away the bride to Mesha.

And of course, the 2 love birds ready to exchange vows. I love that Sam’s laughing!

Fast forward a few jokes and a memorably ceremony and we arrive at bridal party photos. Nothing too serious, just a whole lot of fun!

After the photos, we all sneaked away to grab a few noms and some bevvies.

And while the brides were still taking photos, BF and I checked out the photo booth. This one was snagged before we went in. I think he’s adorable in a yamaka.

And of course, no wedding is complete without a few rounds on the basketball court (they also had putt-putt, cornhole, horseshoes, and a playground for kids). BF takes on Casey with an unfair height advantage…

…and just look at my jumpshot! In a bridesmaid dress, no less.

Somewhere in between all the fun at the photo booths and shooting a few 3-pointers on the court, dinner was served, toasts were given, and first dances were had. Funny side note, Mesha dipped Sam and totally ripped open the back of her dress. Did I say funny? I meant HILARIOUS!

Luckily, both brides had a spare outfit handy to change into, but not before the bouquets were tossed from the barn balcony.

Maybe now would be a good time to mention that Mesha plays rugby, so it should come as no surprise that when the bouquet was tossed, there was also a line-out (I think that’s what it’s called).

And of course, there was a little karaoke done (paying homage to the first summer we all met and sang karaoke like it was our job!).

Before we knew it, the night was ending and I still didn’t have a picture with the bride, just doing what we do best…being ridiculous, so here you go…

I’m honestly still laughing at all the fun we had. BF loved it too and it was nothing short of epic. I mean, look at what came out of the photo booth.

photo(212)Epic. Indeed.

ps. and that’s a wrap for August’s adventure!
