Joe and jess got married today. Woke up at 6:30 at joe’s parents house and then quickly got dressed in my tuxedo and ate a muffin for breakfast. Drove joseph to the arboretum gazebo at 8am for “first look” photos with lynn kai. The girls were a bit late, but we were able to get photos and get to church relatively according to schedule.

Got to church at around 9, and pretty much chilled for the next two hours. Had a short mens prayer with the groomsmen, pg, joe, and jess’ dad shortly before the ceremony.

The wedding ceremony started at 11, and went quite smoothly. Wasn’t as nervous as during billy’s wedding (I’m getting used to it now), but friends still told me afterward that I looked extremely nervous.

Lord of the rings music was played during the reading of bible verses, and joe included a reference to green lantern in his vows. Hah.

The reception started a good while after the ceremony, so the bridal party had time to practice our special musical number.

The order of events in the reception was food, a special song by uncle vong, the slideshow, and then toasts by jess’ sister, me, and then jeremy.

After that was a tea ceremony, and then our special dance. We rickrolled the audience…

Acted as chauffeur for joe and jess afterward. Drove them to the arboretum for bridal party photos, and then to their apartment to change, the bank to get some fiji money, and then to the hotel in sac where they’ll be staying until their flight tomorrow.

Hung out for most of the rest of the night at joe’s parents’ place with ben and joe’s family. After a while, two other families came over (relatives and family friends), so it was pretty lively there. We had a fun time, eating, drinking, and being merry.
