Hello, my bucket list friends! Last month something pretty awesome happened. One of the wonderful people that I met during my time at NHI had the most amazing wedding ever and I just had to tell you all about it! It should come as no surprise that I consider my self to be a pretty nontraditional person. I love seeing people express themselves in a positive way and not conforming to what has always been done just because it is tradition and my friend’s wedding as a perfect example of that.
Love and Rock n roll
I was very excited when I found out that I was invited to my classmate’s wedding! She had showed us her awesome invitations and pictures of her dress. Before I get into how amazing the wedding was I have to tell you that Michelle (the bride) is a beautiful person inside and out. Her friendliness and kindness light up the whole room. I was very excited to be apart of her beautiful day. I’ve been to my fair share of weddings over the years, I’ve even been in a few and they were all pretty traditional. They were still beautiful and full of love but traditional. You know there are some things that can be found in most weddings such as the bride wearing some shade of white, that here comes the bride song playing when the bride comes down the aisle, and flower girls in lacy dresses. Now before I go any further I want to make it clear that I’m not saying any of those things are bad, but they are often done because people feel like that is what they are supposed to do not because that’s what they want. that was one of the things that made Michelle’s wedding so wonderful. You could tell that the bride and groom had put effort in to making their wedding the way they wanted it to be. The place was decked out in all things rock n roll from the plastic skulls on the tables to the flower girls who were dressed up in their best rock and roll outfits and I can’t forget about the music! Rock music as playing when the wedding party came down the aisle and everyone’s outfits where album cover worthy. The bride was in the most beautiful wedding dress that I have ever seen with my own two eyes. It was black and red, and it had pockets! The ceremony was beautiful and full of so much love. You know how sometimes you can just look at two people together and see how much they truly love each other. This was exactly that and I couldn’t have been happier for them. After a rocking ceremony it was time to eat tacos! I mean who does not love tacos and these tacos were so good. Oh, and They had a photo booth and it was so much fun taking pictures with my NHI friends. Since I graduated I have not seen my Classmates, but this night brought us together in the best way possible and just when I thought that the wedding could not be any more amazing there was a head banging contest! Talk about a good time! To top it all off I caught the bouquet! It was a beautiful wedding filled with love, tacos and rock n roll!
