I am excited to be back! I am sorry that I have been gone so long. My husband and I had to move quite unexpectedly. It has been a whirlwind of a month! But, enough about that! I have been working to get organized and to come up with some fantastic series ideas!
Today’s post is about my trip to Las Vegas for my cousin Jennifer’s wedding. Her wedding was unique and quite fun!
Saturday night, everyone in Las Vegas for Jennifer’s wedding went to eat at this German place. I cannot remember the name of the place, but what an atmosphere! The waitresses were dressed in authentic German garb. Live music included a trio with an accordion player, a clarinetist, and guitarist. They would sing these drinking songs that everyone seemed to know… something about “Ziggy Zaggy Ziggy Zaggy Oi Oi Oi.” I contributed to the Ois. It wasn’t until we were leaving that I realized they had provided the lyrics. The best part you ask? The fact that the waitresses walked around with wooden paddles. If you ordered a shot, they spanked you with the paddle! Talk about painful. BUT PEOPLE WOULD DO IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN!
Sunday was the big day!
They got married on the Pirate Ship in front of Treasure Island. Like on the ship. How awesome is that?
To make it even more fun, the guests were asked to come in costume! I managed to miss that memo, which was a total bummer.
The ceremony was sweet and sincere. As you would expect, there were passers-by that stopped to celebrate with us!
After the ceremony, we went to a reception at the Kahunaville- a restaurant in Treasure Island. The music was great! I found Waldo! There was dancing and laughter, and fun to be had by all.
The wedding was so special …it was the first time I had seen Jennifer and her family in like… fourteen years! I was thrilled that I had the opportunity to celebrate their love, and to reconnect with my family.
And that, my friends, is what happened in Vegas.
So tell me, what is the most unique wedding you have been too?
See ya next time!
