Jenna’s wedding was yesterday and it was awesome! She looked very pretty (despite what she said and despite the heat). I was really honored to be a witness and hand her Jesse’s ring. I felt bad because I felt that Evy should have been a witness but I’m really, really happy that I was when she couldn’t be. I held Jesse’s ring and Chris held Jenna’s. Aunt Nora took way too many pictures, but I guess that’s good because I didn’t take that many and my pictures didn’t come out very well. I’ll dl them another time and send them to people. Also, I guess it was my night for luck because I also (half) caught Jenna’s bouquet of flowers. Evy and I caught it at the same time and since I know she wanted them I let her take them. I don’t even have a boyfriend and am not thinking about getting married anytime in the near future. I can’t say the same thing for Evy; at least she has a boyfriend. (I dunno about marriage though, you’d have to ask her lol.) I don’t know what I would have done with the bouquet anyway. I bought them, so it was kind of wrong of me to take them back in a way. Instead, I took some of the rose heads that broke off after the bouquet had been thrown and am trying to dry/press them. That way I can give a few of them back to Jenna and Jesse, and have one, or at least some petals, as a keepsake.
The restaurant the party was in was nice, even though it was in the middle of nowhere. The woman who set it up did such a nice job. The decorations were very pretty and I really liked the candles in the bowls. And the chocolate fountain was delicious and beautiful. Although I have to admit: chocolate covered mango isn’t as tasty as I wished it was or thought it would be. The food was ok, there wasn’t very much for vegetarians, so I guess I won’t be taking my parents back there. But I’ll be back for the baby shower.
Except for the baby who kept crying, everyone at the party seemed to have a good time. I was sorry that Jenna’s brother didn’t go, nor did Janine and Sukant. I guess it wasn’t Jay’s thing, and I dunno what’s going on with J. and S. Anyway, Jenna and her dad danced a little, and Jesse and his mom danced a little too. I thought it was adorable when she started crying. Sorry, I know it’s mean, but it was sweet. Jimmy Love doesn’t cry for nobody no how, so I wasn’t surprised that he didn’t cry. The Ivers’ mother couldn’t be there because she was in surgery so she wrote them a letter which I read to the party (Debby didn’t want to read it so I volunteered). It was really sweet. (I hope she’s ok; I didn’t call anyone to find out. Oops. Sorry!) Anyway, the letter said that she was glad they were getting married because they really love each other and found each other after taking different roads in their lives. She also said that there are 3 rules to marriage: 1) never stay mad at each other and apologize even if you aren’t at fault; 2) they are more than husband and wife, they are friends; and 3) to always communicate with each other.
Haha, non-sequetor but I just remember that Dave called yesterday, out of the blue, to ask me to hang out with him and I said “Nope, my best friend’s getting married today” and he made funny faces over the phone at me. Dunno why that popped into my head but there it is. Back to the wedding…
I sat at the table with the Ivers, Chris, Amanda, Ester (sorry if I spelled your name wrong), and Evy. Tom (who was kind enough to drive me to and from the party THANKS!!!) and his girlfriend came to the party late and so were placed with Jimmy Love and other adults. A few people showed up later as well, such as Jenna’s cousins and Carol-Anne (I believe that’s her name, I’ve only met said Ivers sister once before this) and her boyfriend. All in all, there were about 7 extra people who showed up, which is both good and bad. I was glad to see so many people come to show their love and join in the festivities, but it was bad because Aunt Nora ended up owing extra money to the restaurant. I’d offer to help but I don’t have the money for it.
Despite the heat I had a really great time and I believe most of the people there did. It was a very nice party and was a great way to celebrate their marriage. I know it was more than Jenna had originally wanted but I know she is happy with the outcome and that’s really what counts. Well, congratulations Jenna and Jesse and all my love to you
