Pete’s groomsman count was also 8.

An amazing group of guys.

1 brother, 3 brother-in-laws, and 4 friends.

Also in our bridal party was Pete’s nephew Augie, who was the ring bearer.

Pete has just a phenomenal group of friends that he’s known since childhood. It’s that type of bond and closeness that many people (including myself) envy.

We did not have a photographer at the house where the groomsmen were getting ready. It was something we debated and would’ve been really nice to have, but we decided against it. The only picture I have of guys getting ready was my dad helping my sister’s husband, Jimmy, get his tux all situated.

The groomsmen wore black and white tuxes from Men’s Wearhouse.

Except for Pete’s Best Man, his brother Derek, who wore an ivory vest. His ivory vest matched my sister’s ivory cummerbund.

Pete and his brother have a very close relationship despite their distance. Derek lives in Florida and we are here in NJ. They talk all the time, have millions of inside jokes, and are so similar in many ways.

Here’s a few fun shots of the groomsmen as the drinks kept flowing night went on.

They somehow even “found” an old banner from a job they worked at together.

Boys will be boys.

See you tomorrow with a recap of our wedding ceremony.

  1. Yay, I love wedding pictures! My boyfriend also has a group of really good friends from when they were kids, I love seeing their dynamic when they’re all together. It’s amazing.
