Dude! My brother is totally married!

In related news, I have survived an entire evening of party, and getting my hair done beforehand. I feel very accomplished.

Seriously, the party was excellent. Since Russ and Elisa are Russ and Elisa, a bunch of Russ' friends and cohorts made up the band, and assorted friends and relatives on both sides sang, and sang wonderfully. I myself performed "Sledgehammer" by Peter Gabriel, with parental and other familial backup, and I have it on good authority that I kicked butt. (YouTube forthcoming.)

Other highlights of the evening (ETA more things as they occur to me):
  • For the reception favours, Russ and Elisa baked about 150 little sweet potato spice cakes. In jars.
  • There were lots of candles in jars, as well. SO MANY JARS.
  • The groom's party wore aloe boutonni√®res.
  • I neutralized most of the pre-wedding disaster karma by bleeding all over myself. (Many thanks to Elisa for dressing us bridesmaids in black, it totally hides the bloodstains!)
  • Katie Lopez, four-and-a-half-year-old daughter of one of the writers of Avenue Q, was the Ring Fairy. She wore fairy wings and silver shoes with bells on, and was utterly adorable. (It wasn't a theme wedding, you understand. They just had a ring fairy.)
  • When the officiant asked "Who has the rings?" one ring was dropped (by the best man, not the ring fairy) with perfect comic timing.
  • The glass refused to break when stepped on, the first few times.
  • During the concert, Katie (yes, the four-year-old) delivered a ridiculously good rendition of "Ring of Fire".
  • Not one person asked me when it would be "my turn."
  • Best. Cannoli. Ever.

Yay! Congratulations to Russ and Elisa!

I'm glad to hear that your rendition of "Sledgehammer" went well: I know you were practicing for quite a while.

That's awesome! ^_^ I'm glad to hear a fun time was had by all.

Except for the bleeding. I hope everything is okay!
