Stacy Wedding Pictures Up

Phew!  Been a whirlwind weekend of wedding-related festivities.  I’ll be driving back home to Blacksburg shortly after I finish this post.  I hope to write more about the wedding later, but for now you can enjoy the photos that have been uploaded to Flickr.

Thursday Night – Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties
As groomsman, I had a choice whether I wanted to party with the men or the ladies.  I went ahead and chose the ladies.  They told me they had cheeseballs in their suite and there was also a couch.  Plus we went dancing.  Oh and one of the bridesmaids brought along a dildo hat which proved to be entertaining and quite a good way to meet strangers.

Friday Night – Rehearsal and Rehearsal Dinner
Friday is when I discovered the Catholic Church wasn’t thrilled with my groomsman role.  During the rehearsal, the priest kept referring to me as “that one.”  So, for example:

“Okay, we’ll have the best man here, the groomsman here and then… that one.”

Saturday – The Wedding and the Reception!
Kipp really shined this day.  His calm confidence made sure all the duties of the ceremony were taken care of (I think Kipp was the only one who did not panic when we found the chairs we were supposed to place behind the bride and groom were not in the same place as they were during rehearsal).  He did the best rendition of the ever popular Saint Paul’s Letter to the Corinthians (“Love is patient, love is kind…”) I have ever heard.  AND his toast was splendid. 

As for “that one”, I led the processional down the aisle, did not forget to bow at the altar and I successfully escorted my bridesmaid out of the church and during introductions at the reception  (“Bridesmaid Jennifer Newell, escorted by Mrs. Victoria Herrala”).  

Oh and as far as where I got dressed.  No portapotty was necessary.  I got ready at my parent’s house!

**Edit** More Pictures
Matt Ciarelli’s Pictures
These pictures are from the other groomsman.  He got some great shots (including me and Carolyn dancing).  Most importantly, he managed to get shots of the bride and groom on their wedding day…. a blaring abscence in my collection.

Casey’s Photos
Casey got a lot of shots of the ceremony.  She snagged me and Jenn walking down the aisle together and got some good shots of me DANCING.

    Don’t forget the yummy food, and the idiotic bartender who poured REALLY strong drinks. That made driving to the next destination (Baltimore, MD)… challenging.

    Oh yeah, after watching him pour a glass of vodka with a splash of cranberry on top for Rachel, I stuck to the Pinot Noir because I knew what I was getting. 🙂

    Fortunately I wanted a pretty stiff drink. I think I had 3 🙂

    Great wedding entry! Since I’m a verbose bastard who loves to read his own writing, I’m gonna be doing a detailed breakdown of each day’s events on my diary, but if your eyes glaze over and you fall asleep reading it I’ll totally understand, hehehe. And you know what, I don’t care what anyone says, you did a great job in that ceremony, and don’t you ever forget it! 😀
