These past two weekends have been filled with weddings as well as celebrating our very first wedding anniversary... so enough with me being a bit stressed and a bit of a Debbie Downer (sorry, I am just pretty exhausted from working a 17.5 hour shift yesterday... yes I was scheduled 17.5 hours... and I think my body is just in shock from sheer exhaustion)... on to all the amazingly fun stuff that has been going on in our lives recently!
On October 17th we got up fairly early (well early for the girl that got home from work at 3am) to head up to the Finger Lakes to celebrate our anniversary along with the marriage of one of my sorority sisters, RG, to her soul mate, MK. Along the way to Auburn, NY we made a stop in Ithaca to hit up Ithaca Brewing Company to get our anniversary weekend started right. Of course I got a beer flight so that I could maximize my tasting of beer and we had a delicious lunch as well. We also got some stickers and key chains from the manager as they had overheard us talking (& toasting each other) to our first wedding anniversary!

Tuesday came too soon and it was time to head back to reality for a while. We got home Tuesday night and it was off to work for me. The only good thing was that I only had 3 more shifts of work to get through before we headed to Camden, NJ and the Battleship NJ for JR & MM's wedding on Saturday.
Saturday was an absolutely gorgeous day for a wedding. It was sunny, fairly warm and clear skies all around. M & I made it to the wedding a little early which meant we had time to take a bunch of pictures on the battleship before the rest of the guests arrived and the ceremony started. The ceremony was simply amazing. JR and MM have been together for as long as M and I have, so they have been dreaming of this day for such a long time. It was amazing to see how well it all came together and I loved all the little details that JR included in the ceremony... from lighting the candles to represent all of their loved ones who are no longer with us, to passing the rings around so all the guests could bless their marriage, to the blending of wine to signify their unity in marriage. It was just all so them. After the wedding we all headed over to Adventure Aquarium where we partied with the fish and sharks for their reception. We managed to take lots of pictures with the sharks in the background and also had a TON of fun with their photobooth!
Today I am linking up with Biana at B Loved Boston and Meghan at Champagnes and Suburbs for their "Weekending" link up! Head on over and check out both their lovely blogs and see what everyone has been up to this past weekend!
