Whirlwind Weekend!

After so much planning and preparation the WEDDING has come and gone. I'm happy to say everything went smooth (well maybe a couple of little glitches), the bride was beautiful and food was delicious. It was a Sunday afternoon and most people had to go to work so the affair was relatively low key. Madison stole the show and every time we looked the D.J. was playing with her or the photographer was snapping shots. Hope he took pics of other guests too!

Justin's speech was great and he delivered it well. I know I promised to post but never got a chance so here it is now.

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen for those of you who don't know me I'm Justin Heald, the best man. On Dave and Brenna's behalf I would like to thank everyone for joining us for this joyous celebration.

They say you don't know what true happiness is until you are married, unfortunately by then it is too late!
First I'd like to say to the beautiful bride Brenna, I've enjoyed getting to know you over the past few years. I also look forward to the friendship we will have for years to come. I have watched Dave become a changed man since being with you. He is now more full of life and happier than he has ever been and I believe that is because of you.

Then there is Dave....We have known each other for almost 25 years. We have had many great times and a few memorable experiences. Dave once let me convince him to split a bottle of vermouth. I thought it would be a great idea. It wasn't! You would think Dave being a little older he would have advised against it, not the case! Then there was a time when we were at a party. Dave leaned against a stove that was filled with paper product. He somehow managed to turn the burners on and all ignite the paper products without even realizing. All he said was "Dude, it got hot in here!". Speaking of hot we once decided to play golf in Mexico at 2:00 in the afternoon. It was so hot it was like playing on the sun! Dave almost didn't make it!

On a more serious note I could not ask for two better friends than Dave and Brenna and am so happy they found one another to spend their lives with.

They say there are two secrets to a happy marriage. Here is to a sense of humor and a short memory! CHEERS!!!

The one major glitch of the wedding was because of my DH. He honestly wouldn't be Justin if something didn't happen. I think it may be one of the things I love most about him! Justin picked up his tux without trying it on Friday evening. After much coaxing (he would say nagging) he finally tried on the jacket and shoes. I questioned why not the pants and his response was that "they are adjustable so they'll be fine". Well when I arrived back to the hotel after getting my hair done I found Justin in only half a tux on the phone with Men's Wearhouse. Instead of the 36 in. waist he needed they gave him a 46 in. waist! There wasn't anytime to exchange the pants so Justin spent the day looking like M.C. Hammer with paper clips holding his pants up! The only word I can use to describe this situation is TYPICAL!

Here a a couple of pics. With all of us being in the wedding there wasn't much of a chance to take to many. I was really hoping for a family pic of all four of us or at least the three of us but it never happened. We'll just have to wait 'til Stella's christening!
