Day 6- Yeah yeah, I missed yesterday

I’m still in Savannah on a wedding weekend and I totally did not have time to write yesterday as I was busy recovering from the bachelorette party (we ended up at a honky tonk, felt like I was back at home). We had a lot of fun doing all the usual bachelorette stuff you’d expect. Yes there were, uh, suggestive straws and candy. We met a guy who’d (supposedly) won the lottery the week before who bought us some shots. And there was lots of dancing, including line dancing! Which meant we slept late the morning. Had a late brunch and shopped despite the cold and rain. But today is beautiful and Holly and Alex are here now! Savannah is (surprise, surprise) a really cool town. I totally didn’t realize they had an open container law and that’s both strange and cool. And I always forget that it’s the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts. They’re doing construction at her house so I didn’t get to investigate, which just means I’ll have to come back someday.

 

Tomorrow is the wedding. At a plantation. A PLANTATION. This is going to be insanely lovely, if only because Katie is very particular and a photographer/stylist besides having the best taste ever. Pictures will be posted. And probably some Vines. 

Attempting to find a place to have dinner tonight. It is not going to be easy. There are some dietary and budgetary restrictions. We shall persevere though. This is all terribly interesting, I know. You’ll be more excited when I show you pictures later.

A beautiful wedding

Maybe I want to get married on my birthday…one day…Anyway, that’s what Neil Gaiman did, Amanda Palmer his fiance planned a flashmob wedding on the streets of New Orleans for his 50th birthday. How cool is that?

Here’s an account of the entire thing on Amanda’s blog:

And the beautiful wedding album put together by Kyle Cassidy and Olga Nunes:

My favorite part are the vows that Jason Webley says:

“Friends, family, complete strangers; we
are gathered here today on the 10th day of November in
the year 2010 to celebrate the union of this Man and his
statue Bride.

Do you, a man of flesh and blood, take this statue of
stone, metal, wood or plastic to love and to cherish, to
worship and protect, and to honor until death, erosion
or act of vandalism do you part?

And do you, a statue, take this unlikely but magnificent
amalgamation of tissue, blood and bone to honor and
protect, to love and cherish until death, erosion of act
of vandalism do you part?

By whatever powers might be vested in me by any governing
bodies or deities, living dying or dead, I declare
you man and wife. You may kiss the bride.”

Beautiful. I teared up during the video.
