Photos by Erin Summerill Photography, Hair and Makeup by Krissy from Dollheads Las Vegas, Dress by Trashy Diva, and special thanks to Brendan and Alexandra, our showgirl and Elvis (who are not in these photos, but whose photos you will most assuredly see when we get all of the wedding photos back).
The wedding day, while hectic at moments, was absolutely wonderful. It was small and fun, and it was just perfect for how unconventional and quirky Sam and I are.
Officially official husband and wife, Sam and I are back from Vegas. We’d an amazing time, and we only gambled a teensy little bit. I loved the lights, the weirdness of being in a city where the tallest buildings are hotels, and getting all dressed to head out every night. But man, I’m glad to be home. I’d be even more happy about it if there hadn’t been guys outside the house, sanding the paint down so they can re-paint the exterior, for 8 hours yesterday and now today with no end in sight. Le sigh.
But Vegas…Oh, Vegas. I wish I could just see every show in Vegas. And speaking of shows…While Zumanity was definitely worth going to see, Absinthe blew us away. It’s crude, yes. There were lots of sex and VD jokes and plenty of insulting the audience…But in a super-small theater, with a tiny stage filled with variety acts who perform crazy stunts right over your heads, it was also thrilling.
(“Don’t stand up, or you’ll get kicked in the fuckin’ face”–fair warning, ringmaster.)
(And these guys, the body guards. The human body can do amazing things.)
We managed to get ourselves back home late Thursday night, and we’ve been busy recuperating since.
Last one: NSFW, and not for the faint of heart, as Penny is pretty crude.
Huge thanks go out to Gene’o for minding the Monster while I was gone, and warm fuzzies to all of you who wished us well on our trip and kept up with the Monster while we were gone.
Erin Summerill took these fabulous photos for us when we were married Monday at the Neon Boneyard in Vegas.
I’ll be back on the blog, answering comments and writing again on Friday the 14th. I’ve seen all those fabulous comments, and I see you new followers, and I’m coming to look at your blogs and respond to your comments. For now, though, enjoy a few photos. 🙂
As of tomorrow, I’ll be on vacation from pretty much everything, including the blog. We fly out of NOLA tomorrow afternoon for our wedding in Vegas. Posts are scheduled to be up for the week, but I won’t be responding to comments until Friday, March 14. In the meantime, except some shenanigans from Gene’O, who will be in charge of three blogs while he’s on break.
