Ha, just kidding. Do you REALLY believe that's all I would say about the trip? Oh hellllll naw. We've got a lot to cover so go ahead and get yourself a cold one and get comfy.
First, US Airways can kiss my ass. Our departing flight was canceled and then those of us in the party were all scattered about throughout the day on different flights. Did we eventually all get there with luggage and without killing someone? Sure, but that still doesn't make up for the fact that SOMEHOW my in-laws were upgraded to first class while the groom and bride-to-be were left back in coach with the other schmucks. Did we still get free drinks on the plane because the flight attendant knew we were getting married and was an absolute doll face? Yes, yes we did. But really? First class? REALLY?
We all got to Vegas in one piece. Couple by couple we trickled into Sin City and eventually we took that damn city over. There were a total of 18 of us scattered around the strip and somehow we all managed to get together several times for drinks and dinner and gambling and just enjoy each others company.
I am still absolutely amazed at how well everyone got along. Don't get me wrong, Thomas and I don't befriend people who are dicks but when you get such a large and diverse group together you expect some people to just not like other people. This didn't happen. In the end everyone loved everyone else and what a giant ass RELIEF that was for the two of us.
We took LOTS of pictures and we had our picture taken just as much. Thankfully we have friends and family who love to take pictures of us as much as we do! Those will all be coming shortly.
The day of the wedding was both wonderful and painful for both Thomas and I. We had drank too much the night before and also ate at The Worst Buffet In Las Vegas. God knows what made us sick but it was hell. I literally thought I was going to die and I was so sad that I would die before getting to marry Thomas. That's how bad it was. However, no matter what total shit we felt like we still got ready and we still looked amazing. We got up there and said our vows and both of us almost lost it a couple of times. We have some amazing photos that we will look at and cherish forever.
We are married and I couldn't be any happier. I married my best friend, the man of my dreams, the person who makes me better. I am so thrilled at what we have in store for us in the future.
Pictures to come.
