Mountain Top weddings are the new awesome
Although I know my last post made it sound like maybe i went to Utah solely to visit DI and find a photo of my long lost college friend, the truth is that I went out for the wedding of one of my not so long lost college friends.
Kim (on the right) married this guy Jason (middle on the left) on the top of a mountain in Park City, so of course I had to go and see it happen.
I used the trip as a great excuse to see a lot of people that I have been missing. I even got to go get all paparazzi and take photos of the brand-new baby of brendan and veeda. Take that, Brangelina and TomKat - you guys think your baby is cute, but you have not seen Mei yet. Just wait til I sell these photos to US Weekly.
I also visited Jeff Thomas in his sweet bachelor pad with his art deco bathroom. Not only does Jeff live alone in a huge place that costs half of what I pay in rent in SF, he has a neat peephole on his front door to make sure that he doesnt let in just anyone.
I had a lot of wedding related parties to attend over the weekend. The bachelorette party began with some burritos at the Red Iguana, involved scandalous activities in a hotel room, and ended up at Port O'Call.
Amber and I were so excited, because we had been wanting to visit Port O' Call since our sophomore year in college when all of our UofU friends talked it up so much. I think it was everything we had ever dreamed it would be, right Amber?
I took a small detour in the middle of the bachelorette festivites to see Earl Scruggs play as part of this cool Twilight Concert Series downtown. Aside from wanting to see the man who made banjo history, I also needed to visit the funniest mom i know, Kim Dubois and her mohawk baby Liam.
Special bonus surprise: best friends Stephen and Dan. I love these guys.
Gilgal is this great garden full of scriptural sculptures, all made by Thomas Battersby Child, Jr. (pictured below in the sweet brick pants) in the mid-twentieth century. It is one of my favorite SLC spots.
The actual wedding itself took place up in Deer Valley. Dianna, Amber and I were sort of hoping that the bride and groom would come down the mountain on that ski lift for a more dramatic entrance, but they walked in like normal people.
the lovely bride, now officially kim wedlick.
On Sunday, Caroline King decided to throw Soul Food Sunday, and everyone donned their aprons to get cooking some grits n' fried chicken.
Not just aprons. Bonnets as well. Elin tells us those are coming back big.
How do you know it was Soul Food Sunday? Because Damian and Stacey brought the pigs feet.
Bye, SLC. Try to show my roommate as good a time when she comes out next weekend.
