Goin' to the Chapel: Segway Edition: Part 2

so now these two are married which means one thing: PARTY!!!

at first, things were very subdued -- lovely speeches were given which made the very new newlyweds smile:

l&g wedding 211

including a very touching, funny and sweet toast by le bff:

l&g wedding 213

she was trying to tally up just how many women tom waits dated before the prom queen.

this made the happy couple laugh -- tom waits because he was nervous and prom queen because it was funny:

l&g wedding 217

but once the sun set things got funky:

l&g wedding 219

real funky:

l&g wedding 232

we all ate some food -- including the bride:

l&g wedding 225

here we are together -- if she wasn't married i swear we would ride off into the sunset together -- damn you mr. waits!!!!!

l&g wedding 226

god we are so cute!

it came time for them to cut the cake but they didn't know how so cater waiter had to give them a lesson but apparently it was very confusing:

l&g wedding 236

here's the whole she-bang of cake cutting:

once the cake was cut things got crazy. let's look to rogray for an example shall we?

l&g wedding 258

the prom queen even got impatient and was all "hello, we're married now can we please seal the deal??"

l&g wedding 233

after the guy in between them was like "dude, this lady needs some love" tom waits relented and they suited up for their getaway:

but why are they wearing helmets?

because they rode off into their newlywed bliss on segways!!

l&g wedding 267

l&g wedding 268

amazing!!

after they left i tried to do a series of night shots but spike decided it was going to be his mission to scowl at me in every one:

l&g wedding 229
l&g wedding 270
l&g wedding 011

he did pretty well. also, he may or may not have gotten a little something something with that lovely lady in the first photo. . .

the prom queen returned from her bridal getaway a new woman and invited us all to the hotel bar for some after-party fun:

l&g wedding 001

how could you turn that down?

so we went and guess what was happening at the hotel bar called "the pub" besides 3 other wedding after-parties with some of the most southern, ridiculous people i've ever seen in my life? KARAOKE!!!!

rogray took a moment to think about what he wanted to sing:

l&g wedding 018

he settled on Knockin' on Heaven's Door and he nailed it!

l&g wedding 023

i followed up with Sweet Child o' Mine as a dedication to all the newlyweds there but really only to the prom queen and tom waits. i think i killed it:

l&g wedding 039

l&g wedding 040

um, could my head banging air guitar be any more dynamic? no!

after i threw my back out doing this:

l&g wedding 043

(notice the rock fingers on the lower left of the frame? nice catch rogray!) we had to go home and sleep -- well some of us slept -- spike may or may not have been up all night with a certain unnamed lady in a certain photograph doing certain things that i will not say on this blog.

the next morning we all awoke to sunlight and empty tummies. we needed some brunch at the flying biscuit. except Mr. T -- he was still sick -- he missed the whole party! -- so we left his sorry ass in bed and went to wait in line:

l&g wedding 045

we waited:

l&g wedding 048

and we waited:

l&g wedding 049

and then things got desperate:

l&g wedding 050

but then we were at our table!

l&g wedding 051

and we had food! glorious food like biscuits & gravy! and grits!

l&g wedding 052

and biscuits!

l&g wedding 053

and, oh my god, ricotta pancakes that i still dream about at night (we split them -- we're not gluttons, sheesh.)

l&g wedding 054

and we were so full that we went back to my parents' house and took naps and slept off the food coma and rogray and i made our way back to the airport feeling full, sleepy and blissfully happy for the prom queen and tom waits because they are the loveliest of couples and will have the happiest of marriages.

(there are so many pictures of the weekend that i didn't post here so if you want to see the whole damn set go here.)
