This past weekend one of my best friends, Jess, got married and I had the honor of serving as a bridesmaid for her. I met Jess the very first day of college at Creighton. Jess and I both majored in psychology, attended graduate school together, and now both work as school psychs in Iowa. Through the eight years of school together we have done a lot of studying, research, and traveling together. But above all, Jess and I always are laughing when we are together. I remember one time, we were in the parking garage at graduate school late after class laughing so hard we had dropped our bags to the ground. One of our professors walked by and told us to never stop laughing like that and we have not. I am so thankful to have Jess as a friend and it was awesome seeing her so happy at her wedding.
The wedding was beautiful; the reception was in an old, renovated church. The colors looked gorgeous, Jess looked stunning, and we had a ton of fun dancing. The wedding party even did a choreographed dance to the song Blurred Lines. I was the social media chair for the event (self-appointed) and set up an app called WedPics where guests could upload photos as the event was going on and all of the guests could view and comment on the photos that other people were posting. I wish they had that for other events and not just weddings because it was awesome! Here are some of the highlights from WedPics that were on my Camera Roll.
Jess now lives in Stuart, Iowa which is near Des Moines, Iowa which is where the wedding took place. The whole wedding weekend I kept thinking of the Californian's sketch on Saturday Night Live. In this fake soap opera one of the character names' is Stuart and Kristen Wig always is yelling "Stuart" in a thick surfer accent so of course I had to keep saying "Stuart" in that voice constantly. It is one of my favorite sketches on the newer SNL episodes and you have to watch it if you have never seen it.
