- Wedding: October 2012
So I really should finish these recaps. Lol 🙂 When I last left off, we had just finished our portraits as husband and wife, and now it was time to start the party! But first, we had a little surpise to reveal:
Because hiding under the guise of the perfectly normal guests, was in fact:
A group of dashing superheroes! (And at least one supervillan)
The men were quite excited to show off their hidden identities!
And with that festive note, it was time to get this thing moving:
First I we had to find the loop on my dress so I could bustle the train. That didn’t last long though. I didn’t take into account how hard of a dancer I was and that the delicate little loop would not stand up to my jumping about like an idiot. Oh well! It looked cute while it lasted. A few speaches:
First from my dad.
Then my husband’s dad.
And my beautiful maid of honor!
And then my cousin with Down’s Syndrome decided he wanted to say a few words as well!
Then it was time for our first dance (to Moulin Rouge’s – Come What May):
And a beautiful guest photo that showed the sparkle in my dress:
The the father daughter dance (to Isn’t She Lovely):
The groom and MOG joined in!
And then the dj turned on “We are Family” and we all started breakin it down!
Lets throw those hands up and “Shout!”
(And this is where my bustle broke while I was jumping up and down to “Shout”)
We cut some cake!
Then we cut the groom’s cake (rather awkwardly):
And then although we had talked quite extensively about how I thought smashing cake in each other’s faces was disrespectful (besides, we don’t want to ruin my makeup before the night is over!) half the crowd started cheering for a cake smash and the other half sharted shouting (No! Not black icing near that dress!!!)
So this was my “I swear to god, if you get black icing on my dress” face. Lol!:
Thankfully he was a gentleman, although you can tell from the plate placement that I didn’t quite trust that he wouldn’t be swayed by the crowd:
And then after I saw the icing turn my husbands tounge black, I struck this very ladylike pose:
A quick photo op with his superboy groom’s cake:
With his dad, brother, and my dad:
Then back to dancing (oppa gangham style!)
We were having a blast!
Stop! Collaborate and Listen!
I tossed the bouquet (And a girl who wasn’t invited caught it. Ugh!):
My husband tossed the garter:
And his best friend/ also our videographer for the night caught it!
The dj played a “Grease” medely, which, being the performers we are, we automatically re-enacted:
Then backup jumped in for “Summer Nights”
And as family tradition states, all the boys men ended up with their ties on their head:
Some family memebrs jumped in the pool!
We were having the time of our lives, but boy were we tired!
So on that note, my husband whisked me off my feet and carried me over the nearest threshold. Lol!
Then we came back out, said goodbye to all our friends and family, and went back to our suite. I couldn’t have asked for a better day!
