The marrying type

Girl with bandana and flowers

Oh, it’s summer, and summer means it’s wedding time. Chances are all of your early thirty something friends are getting married right now. Ours are. We kicked off the wedding season this weekend, and joined Nora and Enrique as they partied away into holy matrimony. Don’t you just love this time of year? The endless flower arrangements, glasses of sparkling, drunken relatives, and decadently sweet wedding cakes? To my immeasurable disappointment, the latter two were mysteriously absent from Nora and Kike’s wedding.

Kidding!! Obviously. Of course, I’m glad that their relatives–who were flown in all the way from Spain–are of the well behaved variety, and that instead of the usual icing-soaked-vanilla-sponge-cake-covered-in-coconut-flakes-number there was chocolate mousse and vanilla bean crème brûlée and views over the Bay Bridge and what else could you possibly ask for. Oh, weddings.

The rest of the weekend was spent recovering. Since all those drinks the relatives were passing up clearly ended up somewhere. Meaning with us. Next wedding on our agenda: New York! Are you excited?
