watch the grooms eyes

You know when you're at a wedding, as soon as the bride starts walking down the aisle, all eyes are on her. Ever since the movie 27 Dresses when they talked about seeing the groom the minute he sees his bride coming down the aisle, I've always wanted to watch a groom at that exact time.

Well it finally happened. While I was at work coincidentally. We had an event at the Four Seasons a couple of weeks ago and there was an intimate wedding taking place right outside the windows of where we were setting up.

We were lucky enough to watch once everything started taking place. I told my co-worker, "watch the groom's face".

Well, things didn't go as planned because the look the groom got on his face as the bridesmaid was walking down the aisle I thought "oh Lord he's in love with the bridesmaid".

Luckily the person I thought was the bridesmaid in a black dress, yes a black dress, was actually the BRIDE! And the look the groom gave her was pure love.

So all ended well. And the next time you are at a wedding, watch the grooms face as his bride walks down the aisle.

Casablanca Movie Quotes

This week I was able to see Casablanca at the theatre with my sister. This was her first time seeing the movie and I hadn't seen it in years. To see it on the big screen was fabulous and reminded me just how great a movie it is.

Before the film began, TMC had interviews with those associated with the movie which was interesting to hear. And they ran the credits at the beginning back in those days - 70 years ago to be exact.

At the end of the film it was just a blank screen and nobody in the theatre got up. I don't know if people just didn't want to leave or it was because they were waiting for the credits to roll but it was entertaining.

Of course, there were quotes from the movie that stood out because they are so iconic to the film.

"Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine." - Rick

"Play it, Sam." - Isla

"Here's looking at you, kid." - Rick

"If that plane leaves the ground and you're not with him, you'll regret it. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life." - Rick

"We'll always have Paris." - Rick

"Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship." - Rick
