Goin' to the Chapel: Segway Edition

last weekend rogray and i headed down to the ATL in the dirrrrty south for a wedding. the great thing about this wedding (besides wedding being generally awesome) is that many of the guests were my high school people so it was like a reunion but without the dejected former star quarterback and the drug addled cheerleader.

who's wedding? why the prom queen's and tom waits! ok, he's not really tom waits but if you heard him sing you would be all "whoah, he sounds a lot like tom waits."

that's them -- the prom queen is asking him if her really thinks it's funny to joke about bailing on the wedding. you can tell that she's giving him the answer with her eyes.

rogray and i were all sorts of delayed thanks so we rolled up to the rehearsal dinner late with our driver Mr. T & spike:

i don't what rogray is doing in that picture but let's just assume he is enthusiastically thanking them for picking us up at the airport.

after we finished dinner all the young folk headed over to the environmentalists' home which is one of the most amazing places i have ever been. here's the house:

gorgeous right? oh, what's with the eggs you ask? they are from the chickens they keep in their backyard!!

now, you may be wondering why there are no people in the house when i was taking my architectural digest photos. that's because nobody was hanging out in the house. that would be for losers! instead everyone was hanging out here:

but, what is that?

oh, that? that's would be tree houses people!! TREE HOUSES!!!!!!!! it's like the ewok village in their backyard but without the furry midgets. in all my life i have never seen anything like it:

a tree house bedroom? check!

rogray decided to forgo the socializing and situate himself in the tree house hammock on the tree house patio:

i bet you people haven't ever seen anything like this either.

le bff, Mr. T, rogray and i were very sleepy so we went home to rest up for the big day. it turns out the big day started out with some of my favorite munchkins in the whole wide world: my godsons!!!!!!! i don't even need to caption this -- just look at the cuteness:

pretty in pink!! they are so cool!!

rogray and the d-man promptly made up a game as they often do when they are together which involved them popping up form this chair and screaming things like "octopus party jelly pants!" come to think of it everything they thought of sounded like something that would go on a japanese t-shirt with english on it.

after we said goodbye to the munchkins and got gussied up we made our way to the prom queen's parent's house for the main event. let's take a look at the pre-game:
