When I first wrote this, Wes and I had were celebrating four years married and nine years together. Now, it is our 5 year anniversary and I still say… If I have learned one thing nothing goes as planned. It doesn’t matter if it’s a small dinner party or a big wedding, something is sure to go totally wrong or totally right.
So… Now that the bills have been paid and the dress preserved – let’s journey back to 2010 and discuss some of these “That Happened…” moments.
We all wore a shoe that has a ruffle. This was the one and only time I wore these shoes.
These two were very excited to be flower girls….
They had to be flower girls.
Yep. That happened
Wes dad dominated him in a game of pool. Not even on his wedding day was he allowed to win.
At 1:00 am the day of my wedding, we all had the brilliant idea to have fun walkouts for the bridal party. This was the meeting for them to go over what was going to happen.
It was a huge crowd pleaser, even if the guys didn’t know about it until 1 hour till showtime.
A memory worth keeping!
We found out my dad is hella photogenic.. Who would have known.
Speaking of photogenic… Out of 1900 photos, there isn’t one bad one of these two.
She’s been my bestie for over 10 years. This is when she lived in Hawaii and put us all to shame on the tan factor.
I hate ants all over my dress at this point.
I was re-thinking a June wedding at this point… Look how sweaty my forehead is!!
This is the picture of a mom who didn’t know we were doing Mother/Son, Father/Daughter dances.
And this guy at the bar ended up costing us $400 because he got smashed and smashed in the bathroom mirror. So, watch who people bring as their plus ones…
This is the one and only time I wore and will wear a cowboy hat….It was my Father-In-Law’s
Two Cosmos…I did not drink them. I am still sad until this day.
Someone played the chicken dance… and I hate that song.
It does look like I’m about to take my anger out on poor Wendy.
This little guy…he isn’t so little anymore :(
Instead of a bouquet toss, I gave my flowers to the couple who has been married the longest. 46 years…and the advice he gave Wes. Learn to say yes…frequently (Side note: Kathy lost her battle with cancer, R.I.P, you’re a beautiful soul and we lost a great one).
To get everyone on the dance floor at the same time, tell them your taking a group picture… THEN start the music. Everyone stays and dances. I wish I could tell you whats going on here but some poses are meant to be secrets till the grave.
