We had bundt cakes as centerpieces on some tables, so I bought dollar store cake cutters and decorated them. Although our DJ didn't do a great job emcee(ing) and a lot of people didn't know they could cut and eat their own cakes. Oh well.
The dollar store cake stands I made :) The DOC of the venue kept them just in case somebody needed some in the future.
I thought this was hilarious. Aunt Luann put our faces in our cake. I had used some old Save the Dates as a backing for our cupcake circles with our initials on it, and our faces were the back of some of them, but she stuck them right in our cake. It's pretty cool, just funny because I had no idea until I looked closer!
Cupcakes were demolished
Favors, my toss bouquet
We won that frog as a door prize at a crab feed...it was a kick that night, and we still have it and put it up in various places. We love it! lol. I'm glad the photog got a funny picture of it!
Something old, something new, something borrowed...
NBD, just had 16x20 portraits of ourselves made. Can somebody say, "Will Ferrell?" lol. They didn't get put up until the end so I was a little peeved. haha.
FIL saying "Ok, I'm just going to yell" when the microphone wasn't working! We got that on video, it's hilarious. His speech was very very nice. I hope we have all the audio.
My sister's speech was also very nice, but my niece was up there with her and had to go to the bathroom so along with the mic not working correctly she was getting flustered too and didn't get to say everything she had wanted. lol. Nothing more annoying than a mic that won't work. Awesome pic though!!
Father Daughter Dance
Mother Son Dance
I'm a little bummed he didn't get a good picture of the bouquet toss. I was up on the balcony and I was dancing, it was awesome! But there aren't any good pictures of it.
#rallygranny (that's my aunt!) If anybody caught the Giants playoff games, she would always make it on the big screen and TV and was known as the rally granny! She has got a ton of energy for 86! <3
DH stepping in haha
Our ring bearer bustin' a move. Trent's nephew has downs syndrome so it was great watching him have a blast on the dance floor!
Last song, my aunt made everybody form a circle around us. Then after a minute they all started bring the circle in and surrounding us and then going back out. It was AWESOME! Here is the finale when DH picked me up as the circle got closer:
I love how Trent is pulling his sock all the way up. Lol. I guess he missed the memo...
Oh my gosh, my niece! So adorable. I wish the ring bearer could have been with us longer! I missed getting a picture with the both of them together :(
This is a picture for my grandma! My two cousins and my sister. So cute :)
I had no idea I should have lifted my dress up more so the crinni showed and more of my leg. I was really excited to see the shoe picture, but it doesn't eally look that good. lol. Maybe I will zoom in and make it black and white, but oh well!
My hilarious cousin
Walking down the aisle with my dad, looking at my groom :)
Our friend Sarah did an amazing reading that she wrote herself. It was great.
Everyone cracking up at DH's vows to me. He says, "I wrote this letter in hopes that you are still standing in front of me right now..."
Let's see that...in super slow mo... (ace ventura?)
My brother making sure I stayed calm
my cousin made all of our jewelry for the wedding. I love this picture of her putting on the necklace for me!
Now the boys!
My then FI working hard to set things up how I wanted :)
I was so ready for the first look by this point. All I wanted to do was go see Trent. I got teary eyed just waiting to go outside to see him! It was such a great moment, I wouldn't have changed anything!
