The reception, I must say, was an uberblast.
It started with dorky, funny pictures staged by my splendiferous step-mom, where my dad couldn’t wait to get rid of me….
….and Scope’s parents couldn’t wait to get rid of him….
….and Scope’s mom and I had a big ol’ tug-o-war over him (“leggo—he’s MINE!!!!”)….
Our Best Man, Tony, gave a spectacular speech….
….and we cut the cake, with a special surprise for my brother’s girlfriend sneakily delivered first (hee hee hee)….
We got our cake at Safeway.
(Yes, the grocery store!)
Despite the store bakery staff’s complete and utter lack of confidence that they could actually do a wedding cake any sort of justice whatsoever (they were sooooooooooooooooooooooo jittery and radiating pure panic over it, I almost felt mean for asking them to do it) (almost), the cake turned out beautiful, elegant and extremely delicious….
I threw my bouquet…. and clocked the poor girl who caught it right on the nose with it (whoopsie! My bad)….
I don’t really have any good pictures of the bouquet toss. Yet. But I do have it on video….
And Scope threw my garter. After removing it with his teeth. *wink wink*….
We have all that fun caught on video too (heh heh heh)….
And then with our fabulous DJ/Master of Ceremonies, Kenny, pulling the strings, we danced the night away….
We even danced the Hokey Pokey (this was our Father/Daughter Dance, by the way. *snicker*)….
If you live in Western Washington and you need a DJ for anything, YOU WANT KENNY from Action Entertainment. No, no arguing—YOU WANT KENNY!! You DO. You JUST DO. Kenny is absolutely amazing! We had sooooooooooo much fun!!!! :-)
We hung out with great friends….
There were kisses….
There were hugs….
And in a flash, it seemed, the night came to an end and Scope and I left the party and hit Seattle to get a shot of ourselves by the Space Needle….
Then we headed for our hotel. And the rest of it is nunnaya bidness.
Up next: the honeymoon in San Francisco!
