James and Alana’s Wedding!!! A Tale Told in Selfies

Last weekend I officiated a wedding!!! That is a for real thing I can do.

Behold

It was a long weekend involving flying to Austin, epic laser tag, and not sleeping very much. I decided to capture the progression in selfie form:

On the first plane, at 6am!!!

You can tell that we are both excited, though a little sleepy.

At this point I had already been awake for upwards of seven hours without eating anything besides plane pretzels. I nearly took a nap on the sidewalk and told Steven to go on without me.

At this point I had eaten lunch and had a one hour nap. READY TO GO AGAIN!

This laser tag place was the most hardcore one I’ve ever seen with three stories of structures to climb and hide behind. Steven would go on to complain for the rest of the weekend about how badly his knees hurt from dramatically throwing himself to the ground to avoid being shot by a ten-year-old. Still, it’s not a bachelor party unless you come out of it sore, right?

OH MY GOD I AM ABOUT TO MARRY SOME PEOPLE

Aw yeah, just married some people.

But Steven actually managed to take some pictures of things besides my giant splotchy face, so:

They lined up in age order all weekend, like even when no one was telling them to. Maybe that’s just how they naturally stand?

Ready to get married!

This is a free chapel outside of Austin!! It’s basically like a fancy park shelter, a beautiful place for the wedding!!

So, in conclusion, weddings are great, BFFs are the best, and consider my services for your next ceremony.

I accept cash or pie.

  1. Thank you so much for officiating, Patricia! You totally knocked out of the park! And to anyone else planning on getting your marriage on, you’d be best advised to step up your game, cause the gauntlet has been THROWN DOWN

  2. […] Last time we went on a trip I decided to document the journey in selies, mainly because it involved staying up for 20+ hours and I wanted to watch my face deteriorate into a rictus of tiredness. This trip was no different!! So here it is. Las Vegas: A Tale Told in Selfies! […]
