Jared and I went to our first wedding in over a year this weekend. It took us awhile to actually remember how long it had been but sure enough, the last wedding we were invited to was May of last year. Crazy how you go through phases of life where you've got a wedding practically every other weekend... and then your life shifts to having none! This Saturday we went to my friend Kate's wedding and it was an honor to be there celebrating with her and her new hubby.
Kate and I worked together for a little over 5 years before she left our company for bigger and better things. She was my first friend at work, and definitely the closest friend I ever had at my place of employment. In fact, she was the one sneaking around on the field capturing all the photos of Jared's proposal for us! I miss having her as a coworker but we've stayed in touch and it was great seeing her marry her best friend.
It ended up being much colder than you'd normally expect for mid-May, hence the cardigan I had to add over my dress at the last minute. Luckily, it was indoor- a beautiful Jewish ceremony (I've never been to one!) and I was completely in love with her dress. I wish I'd gotten a better photo of it, but my crappy phone pictures are all I managed. It was such a unique dress and totally Kate. The food and cake were delicious, the venue was gorgeous and seeing the Hora was actually really cool. Although, it also scared me- I'm glad no one got dropped ;)

I remember the days where Jared and I were just wedding-ing out. The summer of 2009 I remember we attended about 7 weddings and turned down another 6 we couldn't make it to. Whew! We were constantly attending them and it definitely gets tiring, not to mention expensive. But after this weekend I realized how much I have missed having weddings to attend and friends to celebrate. We're now mostly in the baby shower/first birthday stage- but just FYI, we are really great wedding guests still okay?! Invite us! We still get out on the dance floor with the best of 'em ;)
