Over the weekend, I was not only asked to MC one of my best friend's wedding, but also be a groomsman. I love weddings, and I will alligator cry at any I attend! I have MCed a lot of weddings in my life but this one was quite special.

The wedding ceremony was beautiful, as we stood alongside Jared (the groom). His bride, Carrie, was absolutely stunning. It was short and sweet but full of happy tears. Being a groomsman, of course I had to be in a tux. Don't worry, I didn't stay in it for very long after the ceremony. We cut the cake, tossed the bouquet, and it was time to party into the night! The newly-joined friends and family danced the night away and never left the dance floor.

Just before it was time for the happy couple to leave, it was time for a tradition that Jared and I have made. For some reason, we feel it's a necessity to reenact the lift scene in Dirty Dancing. Why? Well, more than likely because the first time we did it, we were drinking free wine at a wedding for a friend of ours. Either way, it had to happen at his wedding. I called for the song to the DJ, and off we went. It's been a few years since we have done it. He says I've gotten weaker in my age, I say he's gotten fatter.

After the perfect lift, it was time for the afterparty. The couple headed out to dance the rest of the night away at a local casino into the wee hours of the morning. This is where things get mushy. After closing down the club, they ventured out to the hallway for a hot dog. Tell me this isn't the cutest thing you've ever seen! They sat down, in love, hungry, and shared a hot dog together. If you can't see yourself sharing a hot dog in a tuxedo and an expensive wedding dress after your wedding with your significant other, then perhaps they are not the one.

Congrats to Jared and Carrie. May you grow old together and be blessed for the rest of your days.
