Surprisingly, before this summer I had never attended a wedding before. The one I attended was not the typical kind you see in movies, where everyone dresses up very fancy and it's a formal affair. This wedding, of family friends Terry and Carly, was much more casual and relaxed. That fact is quite fitting and appealing to me, actually. I'm not one to wear a suit often (or frankly, not at all unless I have to). Combine this with the location of it being at a park on the river and some great grilled food and energy - well, let's just say it was a good first experience.
