- Wedding: January 2012
My husband and I got married ten days ago, and it’s been ten days of bliss so far. Our wedding, too, was perfect. Seriously, as soon as Darling Husband and I got into our hotel room that night, we just looked at each other, gave each other a high five, and said, “Nailed it!!!” The day had its hiccups, of course, but I am so very happy with how it turned out. My husband and I are now married, and everything was gorgeous, and my husband and I are now married, and the priest’s homily was awesome, and my husband and I are now married, and the food was delicious, and my husband and I are now married, and all our guests had a blast. Oh, also, my husband and I are now married!
Anyway, have some guest photos:
This is our church. Unfortunately, this photo from before the ceremony began is the only one I have so far from there. Everything else is from the reception. Didn’t the church look gorgeous, though? I love how perfectly the light shone in through the windows and onto the altar area.
Here’s our guestbook, made by our brilliant photographers out of our e-pics. This display was one of the first things our guests saw as they came into the reception. The peacock feathers in the background are actually our pens!
Our escort card display. Fiance and I worked really hard on these.
The table setup!
And here’s our other type of centerpiece.
Here’s part of the mask table. We had a masquerade theme at the reception, so we had a table just piled full of masks for our guests. It was on the dancefloor as they walked in. My local BMs and I spent MONTHS working on these things, so we’re really glad they turned out so well! People loved them! I can’t wait for better pictures of this table.
Here’s our first dance. We waltzed to “Come Away With Me”, and we were very proud of ourselves for not falling over!
This is my “AAAAHHHHH! OMG! JUST LET ME EAT! STOP TAKING SO MANY PICTURES OF ME! I WILL EAT YOUR FACE IF I DON’T GET SOMETHING SHOVED IN MY MOUTH NOW AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!” face.
My dad, my BIL (the best man), and my Maid/Matron of Honor completely nailed their toasts. They were funny, sweet, and touching. I was really proud of all three of them.
Here’s the father/daughter dance. Daddy and I did a polka because we’re Polish. The DJ was supposed to explain that even though my last name is no longer OMGHOWCANSOMANYCONSONANTSENDUPINAROWski, I’ll always be Polish like my dad, but he forgot. The polka was a hit, though!
Our bride’s cake. I was so pleased with how beautifully it turned out! 😀
OM NOM NOM NOM NOM!
…And the geektastic Dungeons & Dragons groom’s cake. I was SO HAPPY that this thing turned out so well. Isn’t the d20 just perfect??? We saved it, and I’m definitely going to use it when I run our next game on Saturday. Bwahahahaha. Darling Husband says I have to throw it away after that, though. Sad. Anyway, this cake was delicious, too. Even more delicious than the bride’s cake, in my opinion.
Here are two of the three flower girls, plus the daughter of one of my friends. Aren’t they adorable? I was really proud of all three of these girls. The two flower girls don’t speak any English, and they came to the US all the way from Japan just for my wedding. Despite the language barrier, they made friends with all the other kids, and they all ran around and had a great time all night. I was told that they plan to keep in touch with their new American friends via email!
Our faux-tobooth! Darling Husband, a few of the groomsmen, and I all worked really hard on the wall here, but the actual photo mechanism was provided by our photographer. Everyone had a GREAT time with it, especially the kids. The little boy in the bottom of this one is DH’s cousin/godson and our ring bearer, and he photo-bombed about half of all the photobooth pictures! Really, though, you can’t argue with an adorable little boy showing up in your picture.
Our grand exit, where we were surrounded by all our friends and family, lots of love, and even more bubbles!
That’s it for now. I’ll post more as I get them!
