"You are the Dancing Queen, young and sweet, only
seventeen 20 months..."
Out of the 100-ish weddings I've been to in my life, I think I've only been to maybe 4 that I wasn't in some capacity working. It's actually a good thing because, since starting my wedding business about 5 years ago, attending a wedding as a guest is pretty painful.
Like, you know when you are planning your wedding and some one says, "Hey, don't worry about it! NO ONE will notice..." Yeah, sorry to burst your bubble, but I will notice. And pick it apart. In my head, anyway (and to Mr. Bee later in the evening).
So when we got to go to a wedding this last weekend, I was pretty stoked to see what the bride will be wearing, who the vendors are, etc.
This wedding was even better because it happened to be one of those weird Small World Coincidences that kind of creep me out. The Groom was Mr. Bee's cousin, but the Bride was a chick that I went to junior high and high school with. The Bride and I were friends when we were like 13 but since then, not so much.

His ceremony opener was to talk about what love and marriage meant to the Bride and Groom. (and I
Really, though? Like...getting married? Aaaaaaaaawkward.
It also didn't help much that the Groom's mother was something more appropriate for a funeral than a wedding. (another aaaawkward...)
Anywho, the rest of the night was pretty uneventful except for one little thing:
No offense to the Bride (okay, maybe a little offense since you *did* completely frickin' ignore me when I tried to be all nice to you during the receiving line), but Baby Bee stole the show! She was totally in the zone that night and had just about every woman in the building sighing in adoration.
Here she is cutting up a rug with Mr. Bee and I:
(Sorry for how blurry the photo is!) I had no idea she was so obsessed with dancing, but any time I
We ended up leaving the party at 10 p.m., but I think our little party girl had many hours of dancing left in her. I can't wait to see what fly moves she has for weddings we'll be attending this coming summer!
