the december wedding. it's been almost 5 months and i just remembered that i haven't posted these.
let's start, shall we?
a few of us arrived at noon. we had lunch at the resort, which was on a mountain. there was this dizzying ethereal glow about the place (perhaps it was simply bright sunlight) and everything felt like a hazy dream. im trying to not romanticize but at the same time, the combination of nerves, anxiety, and being in a place as lavish as this has clouded my memory quite a bit. also, if i don't romanticize a wedding on a mountaintop overlooking the pacific, then what should i romanticize?

i had passion fruit shrimp something (courtesy of my phone camera). the waiter dropped two plates of burgers on/next to me when we were being served, but thankfully nothing fully landed on me.

and then we went out to greet guests.

the lights drove me a little crazy because they were unpredictable and cast colours sporadically everywhere, and did a lot of this business unexpectedly:
