Sheesh, don't you know anything?

The wedding weekend started off with everyone meeting at the hotel at 1pm, where the booze started flowing.

We all boarded a shuttle bus over to the site of the wedding which took place at the San Ramon Golf Club where we had rehearsal.

Finally! My dream of completely extracting the word "sober" from my daily life can come true!!

Later on the night continued in the bride and groom's Honeymoon Suite.

I don't know if that was such a good idea because the place was trashed afterwards. Furniture strewn about, the floor was covered in food, beer, trash etc. Not a nice environment to come back to after a wedding I think..

This is where the best part of the whole wedding weekend started to unfold.
My friend Dan

A very sick, very hungover Dan. This was taken at around 12:45pm the day of the wedding. He had been vomiting since 10am. We needed to be in our tuxes, downstairs in the lobby by 12:30. Needless to say, we were running late. Dan got his shirt and pants on, and I carried the rest of his tux down. In between all that Dan had filled the hotel ice bucket twice with puke.

Everyone in the lobby started laughing at the site of a pale, sick Dan. Dan took it in stride and we all took off to the wedding site, where Dan continued to vomit more.

This is the wedding planner's office at the location of the wedding. Dan just went in there and laid down. The wedding planner had no idea what to make of the whole thing. She had work to do, so the sight of her sitting at her desk typing away trying to handle this wedding, and a passed out Dan on the floor mere inches away from her was pure gold. hahaha. The wedding planner had a few laughs about it, but clearly she was stressing out trying to figure out how to deal with it.

Dan remained on the floor the whole time we were there having our photos taken, only emerging every so often to fill up his puke bucket with more puke. Actually, I take it back. He did make it into one pic, which was met with a huge round of applause.

After the pics we left the Golf Club, leaving Dan on the couch to rest. The bride, and bridesmaids were to come in after us to get their photos taken, so there was a little worry that they'd see Dan in the state he was in and start freaking out, wondering if the rest of the Groomsmen were in the state he was in.

Even though Dan was near death's door, like a true champion he rallied for the actual wedding. Everyone was worried that he might not make it, which would have then resulted in me moving up one spot in the lineup. At the last minute, he got himself up, made it all the way through the ceremony and partway through dinner where he puked some more. haha. Brian the groom laughed about it, saying that the only thing people would remember about his wedding was the amount of times Dan filled up the puke bucket.

The rest of the wedding went off without a hitch. The reception was a lot of fun

I don't have that many pics of the reception because I was too busy cutting the rug up into tiny little pieces.

But I do have two pics of this

This little boy, had his game down. His move? Running around in circles. By the time he finished circling the flower girl, she was all into him. I took notes.
