kristi and laura got married on the same day, so this photo is them stretching their faces in preparation for a full, long day of smiling too much.
we started the party at the red stag supper club for elegance and stylishness then moved over to the u otter stop inn for karaoke and lettin’ loose.
we had to call her “bride-to-be kristi” during karaoke because there was another gal named kristi singing that night, as well. towards the end of the night it became a fun thing to yell. everyone at bars at 2 a.m. is loud.
i know jen is blurry but she came specially from hawaii for this get-together (okay, not really) so i wanted to post this photo.
i don’t remember why we asked this gal to be in a photo with us, but she did an amazing rendition of celine dion later in the evening. no, really. she belted that sucker! also she reminded me of jenny lewis.
kristi insisted on helping me sing kim carnes so i eventually just gave her a microphone.
kristi really didn’t want to stop believin’ — she wanted to hold on to that fee-e-e-lin’… of being the bride-to-be (and center of attention). she may deny it, but she enjoyed the limelight, i think.
the following morning, we went to brunch and she held up surprisingly well.
fun with friends!
