One sentence sum up of the wedding vibe: Just your average fun-having, bus-riding, whiskey-drinking, pizza-eating, gold-sneaker-wearing, twelve-hour wedding party with a side of donuts.

Other cool stuff we should know about: Because we opted for a smaller elope(ish)ment wedding, we were able to plan an extra special honeymoon: a three-month European adventure. (And for those of you in the audience who want to follow along/find out more, I will be blogging about it from here.)
Favorite thing about the wedding: Shana: The impromptu, hilarious (yet tear jerking) speeches nearly every guest gave at dinner (while slightly intoxicated and using the pizza spatula as a microphone).
Jerrad: Surprising everyone with a party bus tour of the city where we all shared stories, laughed, and passed around a ten-year-old bottle of varnish (AKA whiskey).
