Oh my goodness, we are almost done with recaps!
How on EARTH can that be?!?!
Okay, I'm sure I'm the only one thinking that
but seriously, I'm a lil sad recaps are almost done.
Alright, I'm a lot sad :(!
Moving on now.
Today I'm sharing the cake cutting, garter, & boquet toss.
I mentinoed last week how MUCH I loved our cake
and the display and I was alil bummed
we had to cut in to the beautiful artwork.
Someone is intently checking out the cake!
C told me before hand he wanted to do a cake smash.
I PROMPTLY told him NO WAY JOSE!
But, expect him to try and pull a small stunt.
As you can tell by my face, I tried to pouty face my way out of it :)
Clearly, it didn't work, haha
Pinky is NOT impressed!
I wasn't mad, because it was all in good fun and he didn't
mess up my make up, which was the rule!
At least he gave me my picture right?!?
Part of my gift to C was the groom's cake. Can we say PRESSURE!?!?
It turned out SO well and I'm SOOO happy he loved it!
After the cake cutting, we had some more time to mingle with guests,
chat and enjoy a bit of dancing too.
I'll be sharing a select few family reception pictures
next week, so I'm just focusing on the
'special' events today!
Faster than I expected it was time for the garter grab.
C wasn't particularly excited about this part in the beginning,
so I took it upon myself to make it 'more exciting' for him.
I had a special garter made in his college colors
by someone on Etsy as a surprise.
LOVE the peek of pink shoes and socks here!
My dad nearly STOLE the show when he pretended to be upset when my husband
put his hands up my dress.
Sportyspice played the part perfectly too!
He was super excited/impressed that I bought a Kent State garter. I'm so glad that he enjoyed my lil surprise. And this is one of my favorite pictures from the night :)!
Once the garter was off, it was time to toss the bouquet!
I know some people think this is 'dated', but I was so
excited to toss my bouquet to my friends and family.
Personally, I think it's a fun tradition :)
All the Single Ladies..... :)
They are so excited ;)
Bouquet got UPS!
I overshot the sissys [SOOOOOOOOOOOORRY]!
My oldest cousin caught it, which was super cute!
Next up, the MEN!
The joy of winning, and the kersplat of defeat.
After all the 'events' were complete it was time
to just DANCE, visit and celebrate the night away.
Come back in two weeks for more!
