I’ve got some amazing and adventurous friends… many of whom I met while playing roller derby. It wasn’t too hard to convince them to find ugly bridesmaid dresses and head out for a day of paintball (in the sweltering Virginia heat)! We had a BLAST!! But boy, is it tough to run in a wedding dress!
Here are a few of my favorite shots taken by honorary bridesmaid, friend, and photographer, Dan Purdy (Oh, and we couldn’t resist a bit of photoshopping at the end of the day, too):

@September29: Don’t worry… the wedding isn’t until June 29… so my bruises have a while to heal. But actually, that bustle was good protection. 🙂

We would be friends in real life. This beats the hell out of every other bachelorette party I’ve ever been to.

This looks like SO much fun. I’ve never been paintballing before, but I think it would be amazing.

@vorpalette: Sharktopus is my spirit animal! And you should totally go paintballing. I was nervous, and had never been. It does hurt if you get shot (especially on bare skin), but it isn’t terrible by any means. And it is a lot of fun if you go with people who aren’t overly competetive and really just want to have a good time!
