I walked into Lindsay's hotel room at the Omni Prince Edward, and immediately lay down on the bed and cried for 15 minutes. Luckily, no one was phased or thought I was the most unprofessional. You see, in addition to sharing the same name Lindsay is one of my dearest friends. and I LOVE her and Blair's love. Lindsay's face when she walked down the aisle...ugh.
I also think Lindsay wasn't phased by my crying because she, too, is a crier. and a laugher! One of my FAVOURITE things is her huge, open mouthed laugh. but when she turned for the first time to see herself in her wedding dress, she started to cry. She turned to me and said "I just can't believe I get to have him as my husband."
My favourite moment involving Blair - quiet, thoughtful, kind Blair - was as he sat on the patio with his friends. He's not much of a dancer, but isn't phased that his wife is a dancer. He looked over at the dance floor where Lindsay was tearing it up, smiled and said quietyl (and fondly) "She's never not dancing."
FAVOURITE THINGS ABOUT THIS WEDDING
- Lindsay had so many close friends, she simply opted not to have bridesmaids:) Instead, she invited all her closest buds to join her in the hotel room before the wedding, once they were ready. They laughed, cried, drank champagne, and ate this amazing nacho-platter-cheese thing they simply call 'snack.'
- If you look closely, you'll see an assortment of gorgeous, colourful, napkins on their tables at La Maquette. They were all handmaid by Blair's mom:)
- Lindsay and Blair lied about the time their wedding started! They asked guests to arrive a half hour before the real start to their ceremony. This allowed everyone a chance to say hello, grab a drink, and settle in. It was the most relaxed and giddy I've ever seen guests.
- Their first kiss was so intense it broke on of the straps on Lindsay's wedding dress:)
Lindsay and Blair, I love your love!
