Remember Josh's BF Dustin's wedding from last year? Well, he and Carly were finally able to have their long awaited reception last night. They were married a year ago but she had cancer and they weren't able to have their big celebration on their wedding day. The entire event was beautiful! It was held on the top floor of the SLC Library. We had an amazing view of the entire city and the weather was perfect. The food was fantastic, all our friends were there, we danced and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Carly and Dustin looked beautiful. I would say it was a successful night.
Seeing all the boys looking so handsome in their tuxes reminded me of our wedding. The bridal party was made up with the same men.
It's funny how sometimes I think we are all getting old and have so many grown up things going on in our lives, then we get these seven together and I realize that they will always behave like little boys. I think it's awesome that Josh's group of friends is still so close after all these years. They really do love each other. We discovered last night, once again, that Joe and Josh are each other's biggest fans. They think they are the funniest people ever born.
For some reason the theme of the night for the groomsmen was thumbs down. I didn't ever catch on to why...
I was thrilled that they had dancing at their wedding! I LOVE to dance and I feel like I rarely get the opportunity to do it. Let me tell you, our friends can move! We know some people who can shake it like you couldn't believe. I love how dancing brings people together. For instance, Joe and Tori would probably have never gotten together if she didn't wear that famous yellow skirt and shake her tail feather like she did at our wedding. She stole Joe's heart right then and there. She will never live down the dancing abilities she displayed at our wedding. They made her instantly popular with all the bachelors that attended our reception and she still hears about it every time we all get together. Joe was just the lucky one that ended up with her.
This might sound kind of corny but during one of the slow dances I saw all of our married and dating friends with their partners. I think that all of our friends have made exceptional choices when it has come to picking a spouse. I couldn't imagine anyone better for our friends to be with than the ones they chose. I am so happy we have wise and thoughtful friends, who I know we will be close with throughout our lives.
Tori and Dusty had a little dance off that was AWESOME! Dustin is by far the best male dancer I know. He is seriously good. And as I have already stated, Tori can shake it too. I caught the tail end of their battle on tape and you can watch it at the bottom of this post. Oh how I wish I could have captured it all.
The fabulous night ended with us sending our friends off with sparklers on a cute pink scooter. It was the most fun night we have had in a really long time. Thank you Dustin and Carly for such an entertaining evening. We had an absolute blast!
Oh and Josh wins for my favorite quote of the night. We were dancing and he said, "I could totally be on So You Think You Can Dance." I think he got a little offended when I laughed.
