I’ve been sort of busy.

I spent the weekend, being witness to the wedding of my best friend Runa and her boyfriend, Tonez of 7 years - two of the very best people I know. I’m not quite sure what led them to believe I should be trusted to get up in front of a bunch of people and bear witness to their church wedding. Me – a person who had a permanent damage in confidence or sanity. To be fair, the last time someone said “I love you” to me, my response was to bury my head in my pillow and then say, “Uh… thank you?” Smooth. Anyway, I didn’t just see the love during the wedding; I was also overwhelmed by it and said the word “awesome” at least twice. There was not a dry eye in the house. The couple was so perfect; it was a really beautiful and really fun wedding: close friends and family, homemade wedding cake and wine. I got to be with the Frenchman I love on this day. So it was all in all, an A++ experience and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since.

Here are some pictures from the weekend. Highlights include a beautiful bride, a crazy fun groom, dancing to retro music, and pure, unadulterated happiness.

Hurray for Runa and Tonez!

Yeah, that's me with the camera. Pic. taken by Peter Christopher

I trust you’re doing well.

Rahul Saha: And have no one else giggle to my 80s writing? c'mon no! :P
And i would totally not let myself make a speech at my own wedding.
Unless I had a flask of tequila. That thing would ROCK! :P
Yeah, so no speech, but such is the way of love for my friends. :D

@Shadowthorne: It was indeed a marvelous wedding to be at with all the love and the retro music going on.
The Frenchman met my folks at the wedding. How fun is that?! As for the "wedding turn" thing -- hopefully soon. Yeah...go confidence. :)

@Ch4: Aww... thank you and much love! :)

7 years is such a long time, especially in today's world! I think that's one of the reasons why many cried that day - its just purely beautiful to marry somebody you've been with for 7 years!

Great pics! Everything sounds so lovely. And the best to the happy couple.

After spending the first few years with the couple we stopped counting. I think the measurement of time is best used when making appointments and gauging how long to cook meat. :P
But, yeah, it was the most amazing time at my best friends' wedding. I love them so much!
