The Cortese’s!

Our friends Jesse and Cat tied the knot on Saturday in Minnesota.  And we were there to watch it!  Steve participated by being a groomsman, Leslie participated by eating a lot and using the dance floor.  We had a blast!  

A few great memories and funny things…

1.  We, the ever cheap couple, stayed in a room with 2 other couples, the Remley’s and the Burgess’s.  6 people, one hotel room, two beds, one air mattress.  Enough said 🙂

2.  Jesse happens to be about an inch shorter than Cat (disclaimer-he’s totally okay with this or we would not make fun).  And let me tell you, that joke never got old.  Our favorite was that after every toast, people would say “Cheers” (typical), and one of the groomsmen would say, “And he’s SHORT!” (not so typical).  (But really funny about the 8th time).

3.  The “Quilico-Remley-Burgess” minivan.  Yep, the three couples that travelled together rented a minivan.  It rocked.

4.  Watching the Nuggets game in the hall at the reception.  Hey, they don’t make it this far very often…we have to support.

5.  Jesse’s sister Abby, and our good friend, died 4 months ago.  She was supposed to be in the wedding.  It was bittersweet.  But her two other sisters sang the song she was supposed to sing.  It was sweet, sad, and a lot of other emotions all mixed into one.  We miss you Abby.  I’m pretty sure you were that fish that kept jumping up out of the water during the ceremony 🙂

 

The wedding was in Cat's parents' backyard.  Right on a lake!

I told Steve that I was going to put my hand on my hip because it makes you look skinnier in pictures....he did it too :)

We had a blast in Minnesota, and we hope you did too.  If you haven’t been there, you should go sometime so that you can have a blast too.

Peace to our readers,

Steve “I put my hand upon my hip” Quilico & his hot wife Leslie 🙂

Preach it, sister!
