Nothing turned out as planned, but we’re married and that’s what I’m trying to remember. So I could go into the details of how no one used my I Spys, bubbles, fauxto booth, or various other things, but all in all those don’t hold a candle to the fact our officiant was 45 minutes late. Yeah. She ruined all the plans I had made as to how the day would run and I wasn’t able to get a lot of pictures I wanted. People were angry, but there was nothing we could do at that point. I try to think of it this way: I’m married (as long as she actually files the paperwork) *crossing my fingers*
It was fun and the weekend was great(whitewater rafting, 80’s themed rehearsal, great food, extraoridinary friends). So here’s some pictures from our friends. The professioanl ones should come today.
1980’s Nerd and Prom Queens Themed Rehearsal Dinner (McGroom and I are at the bottom)
Me in my 80’s Glory:
Our delicious cake and the topper made by McGroom and I:
Walking back up the aisle to “500 Miles” (you know “and I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more just to be the man who walked a 1,000 miles to fall down at your door,” we asked everyone to be creative coming back up the aisle)
McGroom and I at dinner (no apron and I surprisingly got nothing on me) and my clay flower bouquet is on the table laying down too.
And finally a group shot of our bridal party and a lot of our family

Everyone said they had a great time between the cabins, whitewater rafting, 80’s rehearsal and dinner, yummy food, fun music (I tried to get couples’ special songs to play at the reception), and watching McGroom and I. We were giddy!

@July: In all my rush to leave on Friday for the cabins, I forgot my camera, so I was going to use someone else’s. Most importantly, I forgot to make a sign so people knew what it was. McGroom also set up everything and I didn’t see the set up until we were at the reception. I still have no idea where it was, however everything else looked fantastic, so I’m not that worried about it.
@cola: I’m starting to get over the officiant being so late because everyone I hear from (except the drama filled family members) were really happy with everything and loved how our wedding was so us.
@baldor1: I’m going through 4 CDs of pictures now and I can’t wait to see more of the rehearsal.
@mishelleez: Those cakes were delicious and the set up was all McGroom. He also finished the cake topper when I gave up on it.
Thanks for all the nice comments. I can’t wait to finish going through the pro ones and show those.

Congratulations! You looked amazing and I love your cake and cake topper so much. I’m so sorry it didn’t turn out quite how you planned but it looks like it was a really gorgeous and fun event. I love that you tried to include people’s special songs. That’s so sweet and something I think I’ll be needing to copy.

Just to be clear, we made the cake topper, not the cake. I guess it’s an ambiguos sentence. Sorry for any confusion.
And here’s a professional shot. I’ve got 4 cds worth of pictures, so there’ll be a lot more.
