The Boyfriend's cousin (aka my quasi cousin-in-law) got married this weekend! The wedding was on Saturday but we made a full weekend of it up in Sonoma. I may have enjoyed the rehearsal dinner just a liiiiiitle too much and paid the price the next day. My 30-year old body just ain't what it used to be. But it's okay because a) my abs were so sore the next day (yes... from puking) that I consider it a default workout and b) I used the lost calories as an excuse to eat three slices of pizza and a cake pop for dinner. Such a healthy weekend.
I made a conscious (and very difficult) decision not to take my camera to the wedding because I wanted to actually be in the moment and enjoy it. When I'm shooting a wedding, I'm constantly on alert and scanning the room for those special moments that tell a story. But I'm observing it as an outsider, documenting what's happening in front of me rather than fully experiencing it. So I shot the bridal prep and, once we all headed out for the church, I left the camera at home. It was tough -and I cheated a bit by snapping a few with my phone- but it definitely made for a different experience.
Also, I felt like crap and probably wouldn't have done a very good job anyway. I went with bold lips & a hot date to distract from the pale skin & sleepy eyes...
Thanks to our CSA share, I'll be able to recoup all those lost nutrients with plenty of fresh fruits and veggies. I think I want to make a simple tomato sauce with all those organic tomatoes so if you have any recipe suggestions, please send them my way (I'm looking at you Marissa...). :)
How was your weekend?
