Brad and Mike had a job to do at Sarah + Tyler’s wedding on New Year’s Eve at Pier 21. At midnight, their job was to fire off the confetti guns.
Now confetti guns alone are normally enough to get me excited at a wedding reception. Steph and I talked about ‘the shot’ all night long and as the countdown crept from 10 down to 1 we each positioned ourselves in a spot where we hoped we would get a good shot of some New Years kissing. At the top of our list was, of course, Tyler and Sarah.
Steph nailed the shot. The confetti gods smiled upon her and fell in all the right places.
What never occurred to us was that while Brad and Mike set off guns, this left two gold covered bridesmaids without anyone to kiss. Alana and Kristie, not letting that bother them, took a second to wish each other Happy New Year and Steph grabbed that shot too! I hear it’s totally normal for Kristie to kiss pretty much everyone on the lips. She’s from Newfoundland and they can pretty much do whatever they.
So for the first blog post of 2012 we thought a little New Year’s kissing might be suitable.
Of course, when your teenage kids are hitting the town on New Year’s Eve and you’re on pickup duty sometimes communication trumps kiss.
