Last Wedding of the Series
There were three highly anticipated weddings this summer, and Robin and Tom's was the last one of the series.
Since this was less than a week after Gill's wedding, we really wanted to throw back and make the most of it. Marie was up early with the girls getting hair and make up done, and I picked up Eamonn (Marie's hubby) around lunch time. We ventured to the far corner of the Valley and dined where my BFF works. We ate at the bar counter, and since Sarah is the bartender, we were privy to the drink rolodex. We ate and drank, Charles met up with us, and we drank some more.
Right about when we were feeling really good, it was time to head to the church. But not before stocking up on additional beverages at CVS. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined galavanting around the booze aisles with Charles and Eamonn. It was a riot.
The church service was short and lovely, and then it was time to head to the reception.
The ceremony took place on the campus where I grew up and went to school kindergarten through eighth grade.
The reception was held in a beautiful gardeny spot. It's a shame the super-rain came in that day, but the inclement weather set up made everything very cozy.
And a couple more of my favorites:
Did I mention with the Jager and Heineken, we also picked up some UCLA cups??
The playlist was pretty fantastic and there was a lot of dancing, drinking, lunges, drinking games, wiggles, and more drinking. And that was only the beginning of our adventure.
