night of the rehearsal

friday night at 6:00pm, we all met at Canterbury United Methodist Church for the rehearsal. to me, the rehearsal is the funnest part. we get matched up with our groomsman, joke around that if i trip in my 4 inch heels, i was taking him down with me, are shown by the wedding coordinator where to stand, when to go, and reminded that we need to stand up straight and smile. classic. i remember during my wedding being so stressed about everything. but now that's it's someone else's, everything just comes off too funny. it was quick and easy so off to the rehearsal dinner we go. around 7:00pm, we headed to The Summit Club. the dinner was held on the top floor overlooking birmingham, and it was breathtaking up there.jessi and troy even pointed out to us that they had a special message for us displaying on the rolling lighted up marquee. it said, "thank you for being here with us and welcome to the magic city! jessi and troy." so we sit down in our assigned seats (thank gawd, we were at a fun table. lol) and they start serving dinner. the menu consisted of shrimp cocktail for the appetizer, a salad, and then chicken, salmon, mashed potatoes, and asparagus followed by creme brulee for dessert. yummy yum! here's us just being silly...towards the end of the night, the toasts were being made. karla and i (being the awesome friends we are) always make a toast for our soon-to-be mr. and mrs. we're cheesy like that. basically what ends up happening though is that we both walk up their to the microphone while karla starts rattling off old embarrassing stories and i stand up there beside her for moral support while shaking my head and laughing. i'll admit though, karla maria gives a good speech. kudos to you for finding the balls i lack now and then, and delivering an awesome toast. you rock!
