The Russian Wedding

In late August, Dave and I went to the wedding of one of his good work friends, Alex. Because of the work connection, we got to spend the evening with some of our favorite people: Kerry, Christian, Jay, Lidia, Gordon & Colleen.

Alex and his new wife, Deana, are both Russian, and so their reception was at an enormous restaurant in Allston that caters to the Russian crowd. The music was Russian; the toasts were in Russian; and of course the bottles of vodka were already at the tables when we arrived! It was definitely an interesting and entertaining experience, and we all had a lot of fun:

The picture of me is far from flattering, but it sums up my night so well...Christian making me laugh until I cry while Jay tries not to be amused--and fails miserably!

The bump comparison: there's no doubt that Christian takes home the "biggest loser" prize!

Kerry looked so gorgeous at the wedding that I didn't mind posting this picture--nobody would be looking at me anyway!
