First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage (and Vows that Mention Mariah Carey)

photo stolen from Scott's FB :)
Saturday night I had the honor of watching one of my favorite people, Scott, marry his best friend, Ryan (who's been on the blog before here).  Their ceremony was one of the best ever, incorporating memories of and hopes for the couple that their parents and families had shared with the reverend before the ceremony (the reverend being Ryan's old roommate + band member Galia).  Their vows included a promise to "share their whole hearts for their whole lives" and a Mariah Carey mention, so needless to say their vows were pretty much perfect.

Scott was my NYC roommate post-college (having met at William & Mary), during which time we supported each other through break-ups, Craig's List "Missed Connections", cheap dinners, even cheaper booze, an apartment break-in and everything in between.  Although I don't miss being a twenty-something in NYC (which I remember every time I watch Girls), the one thing I do miss is having Scott right down the hall. I could not be happier for Scott and Ryan as they begin the next phase in their lives together. There have never been two people more perfectly suited to one another, and I'm so happy to see them get married!

After the ceremony and a champagne toast, we retreated to the rooftop for lots of Beyonce, a little Frank Sinatra and, of course, some Cher. In related news, I also had the opportunity to confirm that I still know all the words to Salt n Pepa's Shoop.  If that's not a great night, I don't know what is.

Here's to many years of wedded bliss, guys!

Ps - Although I missed this Saturday night because I was jumping and sweating along to Whitney's 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody', with my own post-college NYC roommates Scott and Cecily, did you see the SNL parody of Girls this weekend? Blerta.
