  Our cake was made me Rosebeary's in Guthrie.  I loved the design and Janet was such a pleasure to work with.  The flavors were white chocolate, raspberry cream, carrot cake (with cream cheese icing in the cake), all with a buttercream icing.  The groom's cake was s'mores flavor and was exactly what Steve always wanted.  :)

                                 We used the cake topper my parents used over 30 years ago.

                                                         Some reception details...

   I made this using an antique window I had at home.  It has pictures of our parents and grandparents.  Now                                                          it's hanging in my living room.

  We donated money to the Susan G Komen Foundation in honor of my mom, a breast cancer survivor, as well as numerous other family members on both sides of our families.  To inform our guests of this we made pink ribbon sugar cookies and attached little notes explaining our donation.

   Steve sang to me at our reception.  He sang the song from The Wedding Singer, but added his own verses.

 After our first dance we did our first Rockband song as Husband and Wife.  We battled to "Livin' on a Prayer"  and I won.  :)  To be fair, I was playing bass so my part was a LITTLE easier.
