Lauren + Joey :: Knoxville, TN. ::: PART FOUR

Through all of the months of planning this wedding, not once did I consider ever getting a costume. At least not until I was on the phone hashing out some last minute details with the bride a few weeks before the wedding. Right before hanging up the phone she said, "Oh, and you're going to wear a costume right??...because if you don't...you'll stick out like a sore thumb." Immediately I thought, "Shit. One more thing to add to my jam-packed pre-wedding to-do list." That thought was instantly followed by, "Sweet. I get to dress up like a fool while getting paid." Once again, I love my job.

If there's one reason, and one reason alone, why Lauren and Joey's wedding is my favorite I'd tell you about the junkyard Halloween party. I'm convinced now that everyone should have a costume reception at their wedding, regardless of the time of year. Even if it's just masks, or wigs, or funny glasses. People let loose when you give them alcohol but they really get out of their skin when they're in disguise. And at this wedding, no one dressed to disappoint. Even Lauren's grandma won "scariest costume."

Thanks again, Lauren and Joey, for reminding me why I'm in love with my job (and for reminding me to wear a costume.) Happy Happy Happy Anniversary!
