|Her wedding was lovely!|

Here's the photographer's posing
|We look like we are conjoined|
|Candid *I was in my twenties, I can say I did one thing that was stupid and reckless*|
|Posed, I always joke how much I look like a real estate agent on a bus bench|
"Eat on your wedding day!"
It will be the most expensive meal you have ever had in your life and you need to savor every last bite. After missing the cocktail hour *and making our poor guests wait an hour for us to arrive* we were starving when we arrived but since I missed the opportunity to greet my guests during the scheduled cocktail hour, as planned, I spent most of my dinner time walking around saying hello to folks and taking pictures. I only remember Aimee feeding me a bite of mahi mahi fish. I do remember chugging wine from our wedding glasses all night long.

Another wedding do-over I would love is easing up on my no-kids policy. Prior to being a Mum, I had a low tolerance for children. Yep, that was me rolling my eyes at your kid at the movies or on a plane being noisy. I liked kids back then, as long as I didn't have to go home with them. I kinda told my guests to leave their children at home in my

I searched high and low for sparklers that summer but so many were illegal in Los Angeles so we had to use a safer version but they did the job.
I am happy we didn't rent the $400 stretch limo to drive us the 4 blocks from our reception to our hotel suite like we planned to. If you must go that route, I would suggest a vintage car like my friends Carlos & Stephanie did but I think it's adorable that we drove off in our own car that our bridal party lovingly decorated.
We spent so much on our wedding, we depleted our honeymoon fund. Fortunately for us, all of Antz's siblings pooled together and surprised us with a week in Vegas! What a pleasant surprise and thoughtful gift! We are glad we didn't go into debt paying for a honeymoon when we had a blast in our suite at what turned into our favorite casino, The Palms. We learned how to play roulette and saw Cirque du Soleil O at the Bellagio.
I'll tell you something, I am soo happy I am not getting married now, it would take me years to plan our ultimate wedding with all the wedding blogs, etsy and BHLDN. The one thing I love most about our wedding is our marriage. It's the most fun, commited and rad part of my life. I'm totally cliche but I did marry my best friend! This guy really fucking completes me! and Liv does too.
