Your wedding day should be the most stress free day of your life, right? Well, after yesterday I reaffirmed my thought that I would never be able to hire someone else to plan my wedding. I will need absolute and complete control over what is going on (yikes). It was the last day of my internship and it ended with a big wedding to work. My boss is hosting a new reality show, so this wedding is a part of that. It’s about a twist on proposing and it’s somewhat of a guessing game. Kind of fun, right? I can’t give too much away right now.
Anyway, we started at 11:00 am and didn’t end until 11:00 p.m. There was a lot of waiting, a lot of last minute changes, and a lot of learning going on. Rachel (my boss) is a wonderful teacher and was very calm and collected regardless of what was thrown at her. She didn’t like the centerpieces so we improvised and they turned out looking pretty great. The staff at this particular venue were a) rude and b) nuts so I’ll be sure to never book my own (or client’s) wedding there. The bride and groom were really presh but they practice the Bahai faith – look it up – the ceremony and everything were rather tradish. It was also rumored that they had never kissed before their kiss at the altar and there was definitely no alcohol at the reception. Truly, it sounds like my boyfriend’s worst nightmare.
Anyway, after a lot of prepping the wedding got underway. It went really well! The weather was perfect and the bride looked gorge; really everything was spectacular looking, minus this HIDEOUS cake. I can’t even explain to you how terrible it looked. It was leaning sideways and the decorator stuck some roses in it which actually made it look worse, the ice was falling off and it was sitting atop of aluminum foil. Gag.
Yesterday I also got another call to work on set again! I’ll keep you posted.
Have a great Labor Day weekend and Saturday Game Day!!!
