My bestfriend's coworkers text'd me and asked to pick me up on Friday morning at around 9ish.
The ceremony will take place in the evening at 7:30 pm in Vegas so we have plenty of time but need to be there before five, the latest.From Los Angeles to Vegas takes about more or less four hours to drive, that's if you're driving at the speed of 80mph.Nine o'clock comes and still the girls has not shown up, opps, someone texting me, it's Christina, one of the girl i'm suppose to ride with. They're running a bit late,! ok..that's good coz, believe it or not i need time to pack!I need to learn how to pack light somehow, cuz i over pack again as always!They finally showed up at my house at 10am.
After so many rest stops and four and a half hours later which seems like forever, we made it to our destination. Our check in time to our hotel is at 3pm, we're just about five minutes early.We were able to check in right away and while checking in, one of the girl was MIA, came back right after i checked in and found out later, she lost ten dollars from the slots machine! omg!How can you lose ten dollars in less than ten minutes?hahaha!But then again i remembered few years back,how i lost my $400.
Once we reached to our room, rested for few minutes, mean time i called my best friend (Esther) to let her know that we just arrived and will be at their hotel at the Mandalay at 6pm. When we're all ready, we left our hotel and took a cab to get to the Mandalay Bay Hotel. She was still wearing her robe when she opened the door for us. Her hair was up, not how she would rather have but perfect for her dress that she's going to wear. She looks so rested, relax and happy!!Love her hairdo but she's convinced that her sister's hair was better than hers.I disagreed.
It is now 6:45pm, but our limousine ride has not shown up yet, hotel provided the bride and the groom for a complimentary ride and part of the wedding package.
Ceremony was supposed to start at 7:30pm but the father of the groom, was running late too.He flew from LAX to Vegas just for the wedding.He finally made it. My best friend's father passed away many years ago, so she asked the father of the groom,soon to be her father in law, if he could give her a way.
Ceremony lasted for about ten or fifteen minutes, the bride and the groom kissed and voila!done! and he's now in trouble for the rest of his life hahaha! Funny because the bestman was caught in video telling to the groom, don't do it, dont do it in a jokingly manner.
I couldnt be happier that day, not only was my birhtday but just being part of their lives meant so much to me. I love them both.
Just so you guys can know, they have no clue that i posted them in here hehehe.They'll be all right;D
