When I was a kid, I wanted long, dark hair just like Mary's SO BAD. Instead I had pouffy hair, which more closely resembled a mullet than luscious long locks. *Sigh* "We can't always get what we wa-a-aant," as the good ol' Rolling Stone song goes.
Somehow I think Mary and Louay have gotten what they want: each other. Congrats on your engagement and thanks for braving the cold, windy day with me!
How much do I love Elizabeth and John's wedding? Let me count the ways.
1.) Elizabeth is seriously one of the funniest people I've ever met. She almost got the reception guests to believe that John and she might be expecting...in two years or so. The delivery was extremely on point and hilarious.
2.) She's also one of the kindest people I've met.
3.) John has quite the moves on the dance floor.
4.) So does Elizabeth.
5.) When John kissed Elizabeth after her reception speech, it sent shivers down my spine. So romantic.
6.) John's socks.
7.) Elizabeth's family (Yay, Lauren + Mike) Like seriously, can they all get married again just so I can hang out some more with them? Also, Elizabeth and her sister's deep affirming love of Wisps (disposable toothbrushes) prior to the ceremony, cracked me up.
8.) John's SUPER-EXCITED-OMG-I-JUST-MARRIED-THE-BEST-GAL-ON-EARTH look after they walked down the aisle and out of the church.
9.) Speaking of the church, Holy Family Parish, LOVE LOVE LOVE. Having survived the Great Chicago Fire, it's been recently restored. I've never seen anything like it before.
10.) Elizabeth and John rockin' out the entire night.
Congrats you two cuties! Muah!
