love, honor, [not necessarily obey], cherish

Saucy is having a Wedding Party today! Happy Anniversary to Saucy! Now, everybody say "I DO" and check out all the fun posts across the blogosphere. Starting here, of course.

The family gathers to witness a young woman and a
slightly younger man marry.

Why the long faces, gang? Is it the bridesmaid dress, black velvet & cheap satin in May? What??

There was walking down an aisle, Pachelbel's Canon in D played on violin by my beautiful & talented cousin of whom I got no pictures.
Stupid photographer.
After some sobbing bawling regaining of composure, there were vows.

Then there was kissing.

Fast forward to the reception. (Seriously, our ceremony was maybe 15 minutes start to finish. Whenever I attend weddings now, I lament about what we could have done rather than rush through at warp speed. Alas, it is done).

We danced with parents.

We cut cake together (sort of; really there was this photo then someone else jumped in to do a decent job).

I'm pleased with the simplicity (read "super cheap model") of our cake.
And it was delicious. [It's all we actually ate at the reception; too much chatting]

We didn't do the mean cake-shove; I just forgot to close my mouth and Stu kept pushing his piece in.
Whoa that sounds really dirty...

And then there was the traditional groping of the bride
under her dress.
Stu insisted on this song for the garter toss.

Thanks for coming! We're going to go do it like monkeys
get some dinner now.

You two are B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!

The photos are so fantastic, not just beautiful either, but the love! The love just jumps out of the photos and fills my heart with warm fuzzies.

Of course, there's this to make me laugh too:

"I just forgot to close my mouth and Stu kept pushing his piece in."

Do I look as tired as I felt in that last picture? Where is the picture of the 4 pounds of birdseed we got out of your dress?

you think your ceremony was short? When we were finished with our ceremony and went down the stairs the woman standing at the bottom thought I was running from the alter...

Loved seeing your wedding pics, I should do one of these.

my ceremony was of decent length but i HONESTLY was forgetting the words as quickly as i was saying them. i was thinking (while saying the words i was being given by the bishop) "what the heck is he getting me to say?" i seriously have no idea what i agreed to *exactly*. i hope it wasn't something i'm actually opposed to...

holly said...

oh yeah and GREAT PHOTOS, OH MY BOB!!!

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

How is that we were all so YOUNG?


JCK said...

These were great, you youngster, you!

He looks a bit shocked that you called him a monkey.

Tootsie Farklepants said...

What did you do to that man before that last photo was taken? He looks....spent.

Restless Ink said...

Great photos and what a cute couple you are!

And off the subject - i just saw your twitter re: Ave Q!! I'm so excited you saw it! I was working at Wynn in Las Vegas and it was playing there at the time and I saw it 3 times! Is it hilARIous or what!!!

Again - wonderful pictures and beautiful wedding - sorry for crashing it w/Ave Q comments.

Sorry it took so long for me to visit your wedding party, what with all my JT stalking and being out of town for a week and all.

You guys were HAWT! Love the cake. Dumb photographers happen to the best of us. Unfortunately, I married on on the first go-round, so I know first hand about that.
