Last weekend my pals Jonathan & Anne-Marie got married, so it was a non-stop celebration for three nights in a row! My pal Dae flew in from LA on Thursday, and a bunch of us spent the first night at dinner (where were ran into Kristin from LA, which was a total shock!) and bar hopping around town. The next morning Dae and I had lunch at the Domain and did some gift shopping, and then I had to run off to the wedding rehearsal (since I was honored to be one of Jonathan's groomsmen) and the giant dinner afterwards at Chez Zee. Later on, my pal Ernesto flew in to join us, and there was a huge party at Jonathan's house, where we all gathered for an impromptu jam (I played drums for a while), and of course, drinks and cigars! On the wedding day itself, Jonathan wanted to continue his tradition of seeing the O'Henry Pun-Off, so we started the day with breakfast at Las Manitas, then enjoyed laughing together at the pun performances. We had just enough time to clean up and get dressed, then it was off to the Oasis for the wedding itself! The setting was beautiful and the place was packed, and it was so special to me to have so many friends in one place. I did my "standing up front" duty, and later gave a speech at the reception. Of course, I cried all over the place, but I got so many compliments afterwards, so I guess I chose my words well! After dinner there was a few hours of dancing, then we sent off the wedding couple with sparklers! But for Jonathan & Anne-Marie, a single reception wasn't enough, so it was back to their house for yet another party! There was more music and champagne toasts, and everyone was so happy for Jonathan & Anne-Marie. The whole weekend was just incredible - the friends, the laughter, and even the sleep deprivation! I'm happy that Jonathan & Anne-Marie had such a fantastic start to their new life together!
