A Heartless Wedding

On Friday, June 5th, our wonderful, intelligent ref and derby player, Roxie Heartless married her long time boyfriend Dave aka Greg Heartless. The bride was a natural beauty in a white polka dot vintage halter top dress with a full layered crinoline skirt. Her hair was softly curled and pulled back under a stunning vintage cocktail hat/veil which was changed for the reception into a headband holding a single flower. She wore big red hearts atop her sleek high heels to further express the spirit of the day. While the groom was handsome in a simple gray suit with paisley tie, it was the expression he held on his face standing beside his new bride that really lit up the hall. The guests consisted of the bride and groom's friends and family and of course two tables full of Roller Rebels. And really, what is a party without some derby girls? All of the girls and their dates looked so fantastic! Now because we are a tough league, I know talking about the beauty of the girls won't ruin the reputations they hold as "bad girls on the track" and so I will fill you in on some of the details. Ruby Redrum with her feminine bone structure and gorgeous pixie haircut, was a modern day Audrey Hepburn in her black, ruffle top dress. MadDonna was a perfect lady in a 1950's style beige dress and pearls, while Amaretto Sourpuss wore a retro-esque rockabilly style black dress and hot pink leopard cardigan. Chest Blockwell and Captain Morgan were both elegant and gorgeous and D-Ball blew our minds in a ruffled collar, plum halter with pinstripe gray pants. Carnage Electra, #2 and Butterscotch Cripple each represented floral prints of various colors and patterns on their dresses. Dedly Weponz and her man were color coordinated as were Celtic Thunder and Jefferee. I could go on and on about how wonderful everyone looked and not only that, but we all had a really great time. It could have been the vodka lemonade drinks that helped make the party a success, but quite honestly, I think it was the fact that we are a fun group of people who truly know how to laugh and have a good time together.

We danced for the majority of the night thanks to live rockabilly music supplied by our friends and favorite band The Buzzards who performed. As always their undeniable talent and antics kept the crowd roaring, dancing and wanting more! They effortlessly played three sets, all the while dancing right along with us, calling out our derby names and sounding as fantastic as always!
Rumors have it, an after party took place at a nearby hotel. I unfortunately couldn't make it and called it a night. So no details yet on those happenings. I can tell you this though. If my derby family was there, it was a guaranteed good time!We are so happy for our derby sister Roxie and her husband Dave and we wish them a lifetime of happiness, health and great times!! Thanks for having us Mr. and Mrs. Heartless. It was an honor to be your guest.
