Last weekend we attended our friends’ wedding, and had a wonderful time. Our gift to the newlyweds was a 22″ x 28″ framed poster we created with photos taken for the cover of our magazine. We think the collage turned out great, and we hope they love it. Aren’t they a gorgeous couple?
I “Rented the Runway” again with a vibrant Rachel Roy dress to compliment my daughters’ outfits. Tom wore an equally vibrant blue dress shirt with pale khakis.
The wedding was held at a local Golf Club, a scenic venue (albeit a “tad” windy). The bride was escorted down the rose petal-strewn, grassy aisle by her father. The ceremony was brief (“I do.” “Me too.”), and soon we were following the wedding party to the clubhouse.
Mr. and Mrs. wasted no time getting to the dance floor for their first dance. We all cut the rug before the night was over, and I have to say our 11 year old daughter was a star working her Wii Fit 2 (her admission) dance moves.
I lightened the video since it was so dark in there. Here she dances with our friend, Mike. They are both superstars!
A buffet was presented with fruit, cheese, salad, chicken, potatoes, asparagus and bread rolls. When we returned to our table, the girls had plates of mac & cheese and fried chicken tenders waiting for them. So thoughtful! Everything was delicious.
The wedding couple cut their cake, and fed it tenderly to each other. No cake/face smashing. The white cake had a cherry filling and chewy fondant frosting.
The bride tossed her bouquet to a sparse crowd of 5 single ladies, while the groom flung his wife’s garter to a sea of single men and two small children. Not sure how to interpret that. The garter was caught by a classmate of our 11 year old which made the whole room erupt in laughter.
Champagne and sparkling cider were served in flutes, and we all enjoyed the tradition of toasts.
The girls were looking forward to attending this wedding as much as they had looked forward to Knott’s Berry Farm. All the pomp & circumstance were a secret they had yet to experience. I think it was everything they hoped it would be and then some!
