big night

not up in the air
our flight to st. maarten is a little delayed (so far: 1 hour). however, with wireless internet available (for a fee), i'm actually fine with having a little break to stretch out and share picturs from yesterday's wedding extravaganza! but before we headed out to celebrate in style, a bunch of us checked out some butterflies at the krohn conservatory.

there was an exhibit featuring japanese garden traditions, including an 'insects as pets' segment with some cheery anime-style friends nestled in the greenery.

if you look closely, you'll see that this old bonsai and i have something in common . . .

this butterfly was like a feather in josh's cap!

while this one showed excellent taste. i think orla would approve.

soon after the butterfly fest it was wedding time! the bride, emily, is one of my best friends from williams. she happens to be both a brilliant chemist and eagle-eyed designer bargain shopper. also, we have almost the same handwriting.

look at this gorgeous woman . . .and her gorgeous DRESS!

+ manolos. beyond fabulous.

josh and i posed for a shot -- unfortunately some smudginess on the lens will prevent this from being on next year's new year's card! but i'm posting it anyway.

freshman roommate shot! me + the lovely azusa.

shoe fun! i wore white ones and it wasn't quite memorial day . . . don't tell stacey london.

all of williams girls . . .

look how happy.

i took one look at this amazing tray and declared it blogworthy:

and dinner was just as delicious. scallops all around!

and, as usual, we tore it up on the (tiny) dance floor. meredeth and i rocking it to gaga:

what. a. night.

and we're off
and . . . while i've been typing this, they changed our flight to make it LESS delayed! i didn't know that ever happened. time to change gears and start the R E L A Xing part of the trip. i'm so enamored with the concept that i've decided to make it this week's happiness project goal. more on this later! it's boarding time . . .


  1. What a beautiful wedding! Love all the shoes, and the bride looks so HAPPY. :)

    Have a relaaaaaxing vacation! You deserve it!

  2. yay less delayed flights! everything at the wedding looks absolutely fabulous. and great shot of the williams girls. you know that's going to pop up in some alumni newsletter thingy :)

  3. Looks like such a great time. I remember my roommate's wedding being a blast.

  4. I love weddings! I don't know why some people think they're boring. Your dress is cute. Anthro? :)

  5. Looks like a fun wedding. Have fun on your trip!

    Yeah dancing to GaGa!!! Hope you two have an amazing (and relaxing) vacation! (PS - I too got delayed an hour...luckily both flights though or else I might still be chilling in Chicago).
