A Very Sordid Wedding: Del Shores, Steve, Emerson Collins

A Very Sordid Wedding

The weekend after the symphony concert on March 4th, Steve and I met up at LAX to drive down to Palm Springs for the world premier of A Very Sordid Wedding. We chose to drive because the flights from LAX to Palm Springs, though short, are insanely expensive. We now know why.

No matter what it costs, FLY! We were in bumper-to-bumper traffic for hours both going and returning to LAX (even though we returned on Saturday!). The drive was horrid!

California has gotten so much rain this year, all of the hills are gorgeously green and blooming with wonderful desert flowers! We had a blast.

The Sordid “franchise”1 is a very specific cult classic of sorts. Those that love it can recite every single line. I personally find it fun and filled with great one-liners. This sequel is a worthy addition to the franchise.

At any rate, we attended opening night and a brunch event the next morning with the cast. Steve and I are actually extras in the movie. (This is why we flew up to Winnipeg back before the election, for the filming of the wedding scene with Whoopi Goldberg.)

So, we had a fun weekend—a brief glimpse into a very different world from the one in which we live. Here are some pictures at the premier…
