Brian and I had the privilege of attending our friends Holly and Meader’s wedding last weekend. It was funny because, when I received the wedding invitation a couple of months ago, the invitation included a map and instructions for the wedding venue which just happens to be one floor above my office. LOL.

I was like, “I know exactly where this is!”

Holly and Meader’s wedding was held at the Petroleum Club on the 9th floor of the Ruffin Building. I love how they had their wedding and reception at the same location. That was great thinking on their part because it makes it really convenient for the guests. It saves you from having to drive from one venue to another.

We meant to arrive much earlier but I spotted a Snorlax as we were leaving our neighborhood and asked Brian to pull over. Yes, we started playing Pokémon GO a couple of weeks ago and are completely hooked. Thankfully, we left the house early enough that we still arrived a few minutes early.

I can just see the disapproving looks had we been late. “So, tell me again why you missed the wedding? You were trying to capture a Snorlax?!” LMAO.

Paula and Abby were already there when we arrived. Paula (pictured on the right in the above photo) was kind enough to save me and Brian a couple of seats at her table, which she dubbed the “Zumba” table. This is another thing that I felt Holly and Meader got right. I think open seating is definitely the way to go. There are few things more stressful than having to decide where to place people. And then it’s extra work to make sure all of those placeholders are in the right spots. Definitely not my favorite wedding task. I say let the guests figure it out.

Jake, Christina, Andrea, and Gina also sat at the same table.

Here’s a picture of me with Hideki, who was part of the wedding party so he sat at the special table for all the members of the wedding party.

This is Missy. She was party of the wedding party as well.

Here’s Missy and Brian.

Missy with the Bloessers, Rob and Heather. We got to spend time with these guys on the Zumba cruise earlier this year.

Beautiful party people.

I took a photo of our feet because I thought it was a neat coincidence that Paula and I wore the same color shoes. The red toenails belong to me and the blue toenails belong to Paula. Great minds think alike!

Here’s a picture of Brian and Todd with a photobomb by the groom.

It wasn’t too long ago that our group was Christina and Jake’s wedding. Now we were all gathered together again to share in Holly and Meader’s special day.

Holly looked so beautiful and was positively radiant.

Here’s a picture of their colorful wedding cake.

…And Meader’s Tardis groom’s cake.

Here are a couple of pictures of the happy couple.

We couldn’t resist Pokémon hunting after the wedding ceremony as we were waiting for the reception to official begin. The place was swarming with Pokémons because Gina and Brian both placed Pokémon lures at a nearby Pokémon stop.

Here’s a picture of me with Meader and Holly.

Having a great time with my Zumba pals, Paula and Missy.

Here are a couple of pictures of Holly and Meader that I took during their first dance. Don’t they look so adorable together?

More dancing!

That’s pretty much all I have. Congratulations to Meader and Holly. Best wishes for a happy honeymoon and marriage.

XOXO,
Flip and Ching
