Congratulations to Le Gramonds! Oui?

Well, it was an interesting Friday. I took the day off to celebrate the celebration of Christina and Eric. I guess they’re now officially the Gramonds! (remember you need to plug your nose and have a fake French accent when pronouncing that last name).

For those unacquainted with messieur Gramond, he looks sorta like this. All that is missing is the mustache!

For those who were unable to attend, here’s a brief synopsis. My apologies if this is long, but since most of it is pictures, I promise it won’t be too painful.

The ceremony took place at:
GBFX0265-20_gbfx Which is in Santa Monica. And since I took Friday off…you guessed it! It took place during:

GBFX0249-5_gbfx
Halloween! So they were gracious enough to provide us with some
GBFX0263-18_gbfx
masks in case us lame people didn’t wear any costumes. Though my excuse was I was dressed up as a Groomsman.

Since Eric did not have the guts to get married in this outfit:

We settled for some more spiffier attire and champagne celebrations were in order. The ladies got a head start, and got champagne first =(
GBFX0344-89_gbfx
Oh wait..since this is a French wedding, technically it isn’t champagne. It’s sparkling wine, as champagne can only be called as such if it came from the Champagne region of…oui oui France!

Eric’s brother Nick was the best man. He, in my humble opinion looks sorta like a cross between Niles from the Frasure TV show and the actor Chris Eliot from that old American 80’s tv show “Get a Life”.

I was the Groomsman, and I’d post a pic of myself being one, but since I had the camera and didn’t take a picture of myself. You’ll have to trust me on this one. Nick gave a riveting speech

until this man:
GBFX0476-217_gbfx
pretty much walked in and stole the show! He even took best costume during the costume contest and swiped it away from underneath Christina’s dad’s nose. Poor Mr. Mitchelle. He didn’t even know what hit him =( The man in the suit is no other than ‘Justin Miller’.

Though it is in this humble photographer’s opinion that this little dude should of won. He was the ring bearer (quite literary). He looked so cute as he walked up the isle in this fancy attire. All that was missing was the hairy feet! But worry not. I whispered in his ear, that when he gets older he’ll have all the hairy feet he’ll ever want!

Though he is not to be over-shadowed by the adorable flower girl!
I don’t know her real name, but she loves frogs and nicknames herself ‘frog’. Therefore she’s clearly my favorite. I luckily snapped a picture of her and her mom having a cute loving smooch.

Eric and Christina danced the night away. As the party progressed, every one got down and boogied.

And it got pretty scandalous!
GBFX0788-158_gbfx
all the kids had to leave the room!
GBFX0426-171_gbfx
(Ok fine, maybe that didn’t happen, but it sure sounded better if it did!).

At any rate, it was a fun night for all! and I wish them the all the best!
