Since we had to travel with all of our decor, we decided to keep things simple.  And, we were lucky to have such a plush venue!

My MOH hand made all of our cupcakes! The top (big) cupcake was vanilla, followed by banana, then devil's food, then brownie with mint filling, and the bottom layer was more vanilla.  YUM!

Our first dance was to John Mayer-Gravity

Scott started like he was going to be nice-ended up SLAMMING the frosting on me.  I had taken such a small, frosting-less piece to feed him that I had no retaliation! So I did what any genius new wife would-and SPIT my cake on him :-)
