If you know anything about me, you’d know how much I LOVE weddings.
I love everything about weddings.
From the venue, to the decor, to the dresses, to the entertainment…
and to the FOOD!!! Oh-em-gee I love food. 😛
I love ’em all.
If I could afford to throw myself a wedding every year, I sooo would.
I’m soooo not kidding at all.
I can dream, can’t I?
Okay, so this past Sunday we went to a wedding. The first wedding of the year. And trust me, there’s a handful of them coming up and I am looking forward to every single one of them.
Who got married: Hub’s cousin Christine Olivares to Stuart Bullard
When: Sunday, March 25, 2012
Where: Del Mar Room in Belmont Shore, CA
For some odd reason, I thought it was going to be on the Queen Mary, but I was wrong (and disappointed).
So yeah. For those that follow me on Twitter…sorry. I totally lied about the location.
The day started off very nice and sunny.
I was able to get some gym time in: 30 min HIIT on the treadmill, which actually put me just over a 5k.
Ran to Target really quick to get a last minute gift.
Hey, don’t judge. I was sick all week remember?
By the time we were all ready to go, the sky had turned an ugly shade of gray.
On the drive out there, it poured.
No sweat though. I was able to keep myself amused….
I even dragged the hubs into it…
Backseat Photo Booth Op lol
After all that nonsense, we finally made it to the venue. I got so caught up saying hello to everyone that I didn’t really get a chance to take many pictures. And the few pictures I did take…well the quality wasn’t the best.
Just know this. The wedding was simple, elegant, and very intimate.
And we had a FABULOUS time.
Christine looked absolutely gorgeous in her wedding gown.

Presenting Mr. & Mrs. Stuart Bullard!
Congratulations to the happy couple!!!
Remember how I said I love food? Yeah, well I was really looking forward to seeing (and tasting) what was on the menu.
Cocktail hour: Full open bar. Helped myself to a margarita and some wine. Yum.
Appetizers served: bruschetta, bacon wrapped scallops, and chicken kabobs.
Wasn’t a big fan of the bacon wrapped scallops or chicken kabobs. Just my opinion.
And next up: Dinner!
All I have to say is…I should have ate more appetizers.
Dinner was steak, shrimp, mashed potatoes, and asparagus. It looked delicious.
Not gonna gross you out with the details, but let’s just say I don’t eat raw meat.
Yeah. So hubs gave me his shrimp and I just stuck to that and the veggies.
The best thing I ate all night?
red velvet cupcake
Yummy friggin’ cupcakes galore!!!
Mmm, mmm good.
Again, I apologize for the crappy photo quality.
And for the lack of photos taken.
I’ll do better next time.
Here’s one more for the road…
