Saturday has come and gone and our wedding was fantastic. 146 of our closest friends and family came in to celebrate and we had a blast. Rob and I were hot as anything throughout the ceremony, ((lots of sweating in our non-AC’d chapel)), but we survived! Our reception venue was breathtaking—-just how I wanted it. Things could not have gone better. Our dance floor was jam packed from the moment the party music started—we danced, and jumped, and screamed, and danced, and dance and danced. Nearly everyone in the room was on their feet shakin’ their thangs! It was insane.
Here’s what you probably want to know:
1. I happened to stop into the florists Friday afternoon and nearly had a heartattack. The flowers were COMPLETELY wrong. Hot pinks and deep purples when they were supposed to be all peach/ivory/blush. I nicely told them they would need to be re-done and by the next afternoon they were perfect! Phew. **note to brides, check on your flowers ahead of time. If I hadn’t, I would have been EXTREMELY upset on the wedding day.
2. The guests who paid were so much fun! I loved them!
3. Mrs. Crazy said lovely things to Rob and I. She was teary most of time, but completely appropriate. Mr. Crazy wasn’t crazy at all. He was wonderful. I actually hardly notcied them throughout the evening.
Here is a very poor quality video shot by one of our groomsmen ((hence most of it is around my *husband*, Robbie)). You can spot him and I at about the 2:33 mark—I had changed into white pants and a gold shimmery top at that point. Oh and the guy at the end—that’s not Robbie. That’s a very drunk groomsman!
Wish you had all been there, it was a wild time! More photos will follow later…

hahaha that was a hilarious video! What in the world is it with people, weddings, Journey, and Shout? Our DJ called these two songs the “I’m going to wait until everyone gets intoxicated to play” songs – everyone was very excited to participate in these ones at our wedding as well lol You looked beautiful! Can’t wait to see the pictures and I’m so glad everything went perfectly! Congratulations 🙂

I find the fact that the peopel who ‘paid’ were the blast of it all – what a cool story that will end up being later!

The video is awesome 🙂
I am so happy that everything went well with the crazies. I know that was probably the most stressful part of getting to your wedding.
