Aimee and Scott get married

This weekend, I made a quick trip down to Nags Head, North Carolina to attend the (second) wedding of my friends Aimee and Scott. Not second as in second marriage, they actually had two separate weddings- a traditional one in New Jersey for the families and a fun one on the Outer Banks for the friends. I went to the fun one, (obvs) and it was marvelous! The weather was perfect, the ceremony was beautiful, and the bride and groom both very attractive. Best of all, I got a much-needed dose of friend time: I really am fortunate to have such an amazing group of people in my life. We celebrated, we laughed, we danced, we drank, we drank more, and next thing you know, it's 3AM and you're standing in a pool in your dress as both a participant and a spectator of a belly-flopping contest, the highlight of which was Scott doing a simultaneous flop with his brother and sister. Here are some nice pictures:

Followed by a couple of goofy ones: Me feeding Jon and Heather's baby a bottle while Ern feeds me a beer (babysitting is fun!), and Buddah and I after we decided to swap outfits. Hmm, I wonder why I wasn't invited to the formal wedding?

I was hoping to post some belly flop pictures, but upon review, light colored, chiffon sundress + water + flash photography = unsuitable for public viewing.

I had such a great time and I'm glad I was there to watch two wonderful people get hitched in a style that was all their own- thoughtful, unique, and fun as hell. Congratulations, Aimee and Scott! (I know you're reading this, you lurkers, you.)

Did you get a chance to get "Stuck in Duck" in Duck, NC or hit a Brew Thru for beer and wine? I love the Outter Banks and the NC area!

Unfortunately, I was only there for a day and a half, so I didn't get to do much exploring. We did go to a grits place for breakfast, though. And I saw lots of pelicans and dolphins!

Looks like fun! I love that a guy willingly swapped outfits with you.
