This weekend Crysta and I drove to the Twin Cities to attend the reception for my friend Topher's (and his now Wife Nicole's) Wedding Reception. It was a good time, and I managed to get a little bit of footage of the evening.
Music in this entry is, of course, by me - under my Lt. Snorkel style. Happy Wednesday will, of course, return to the soundtrack eventually, but the studio album is far from completed. But it's getting worked on.
Topher and Nicole's reception was wonderful, and I wish nothing but luck for the two of them. I'm no longer weirded out by friends of mine getting married -- it's become very normal these days. What does weird me out is that I'm not weirded out by it anymore.
...if that makes any sense.
The evening was truly a lot of fun, and I didn't catch most of it on video because I was too busy having a good time. All in all, a 100% successful evening. I mean, who wouldn't enjoy an evening of friends, dancing, and a DJ who couldn't find his own asshole if he tried.
I have to talk about the DJ. He wasn't bad, don't get me wrong, but he suffered from a terrible case of "Wedding DJ." Who even owns a CD with Kenny G covering Sade's "Smooth Operator"? Apparently this guy. He's also announce something like it was happening next... and then it would turn out to mean it was happening 20 minutes later. Finally, he decided they were doing the "Dollar Dance." If you don't know what the dollar dance is, it's where guests pay a small amount of money to dance with the Bride or Groom. Topher, said groom, had no idea what it was, let alone that he was doing it.
Dear Mr. DJ: For future reference, make sure that people know what ridiculous wedding traditions you're going to throw in prior to making them happen.
I'm just saying.
At the end of the night Crysta and I drove back to Eau Claire, which was very tiring and visibility was absolutely terrible. That drive home was full of absolutely no fun, but we survived it. It was worth it though to celebrate Topher's nuptials, and I hope everything goes awesome for Nicole and him.
