The One Where Fro Yo Says Goodbye

Ahh… I’m so sad to write this post!!  I’ve been putting it off, but really, I’ve spent over a year blogging on Weddingbee, and I think it’s time for me to step down and let some of the newer bees take over. 

This community is unlike any other one I’ve ever been a part of.  The girls are just truly amazing.  You listened to me vent, helped me find items I needed for my wedding, and helped me plan all my wedding outfits.  But, above all that, you were an incredibly supportive community.   When I applied to be a bee, I never anticipated I would make such wonderful friends, but that’s exactly what happened.  I can’t thank you guys enough for your sweet comments and great advice. 

I will miss you all a lot, but if you’re interested in hearing what else is going on in the Fro Yo household, you can find me over at Minted Life

I’ll leave you with one of my favorite moments of the wedding day.  Mr. Fro Yo and I had just finished our ceremony and we were surrounded by our bridal party.  Everyone was hugging and offering their congratulations.  There is really nothing better than standing next to the person you love just after you say “I do.”  Sigh.  Here is a snippet from our full length feature by Vanessa McKellar where Mr. Fro Yo and I tell you what it feels like to be married:

Thank you again! 

Love,

Mrs. Fro Yo



The Party Comes to an End

So, though it felt like the party had just started, I got the word from our coordinator, Lisa, that it was almost time for our last dance.  Boo!  The day seriously flew!

Well, Mr. Fro Yo is not a big dancer, but I pulled him out onto the dance floor for this last moment.  We danced to “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey. 

We started things off as happy newlyweds:

But, shortly after, we had someone cut in:

My sister’s boyfriend couldn’t let the night go by without stealing a dance with Mr. Fro Yo.  And, not to leave me out, my sister took her place as my partner:

Shortly after, we returned to our original partners:

And, all our friends joined us:

After the song was over, everyone thanked us for a wonderful time and grabbed their ribbon wands to see us out.

And, after we had our private last dance, we joined them to say goodbye:

Our videographer, Vanessa McKellar, captured these last moments perfectly.  And, she even caught us doing a little Jersey Shore style fist-pumping.  Here’s a sneak peek from our full length video:

Up next?  Fro Yo says goodbye. :(



Let’s Get This Party Started

So, we got all the big things out of the way– we had our first dance, cut the cake and played in the photobooth, now we were ready for people to hit the dance floor. 

The girls started things off:

Then, slowly the boys started showing up to0:

Then, these guys showed up and it got a little bit crazier:

But, I’m not sure that pictures do all of this justice.  Perhaps a little video will help.  Here’s a clip from our full length feature by Vanessa McKellar.  Oh, and in the clip, I use our handfasting ceremony cord as a lasso.  Yep, keeping it classy:

So, are you looking forward to the dance party at your wedding?



First Look: Redo

I know, I know.  I bet you think I’ve lost it.  I already talked about first look and I showed you all the wonderful photos.  But, I didn’t think it was enough.  The photos did a great job capturing the emotion we felt at that exact moment, but you don’t get a real visual of how all the emotions unfolded.  Well, surprise surprise.  I have a clip from our full-length video to share with you.  Oh, and here’s a little secret, my big strapping sweet husband that never cries, cried.  Here’s a piece of our video from Vanessa McKellar:

Sigh.  I could watch that over and over.  It was definitely one of my favorite moments of the day.  We didn’t talk all day, so the build up was huge.  I was anxiously awaiting the moment I was going to get to see him in his suit, and that he would finally be able to see my dress and me!

For those of you not married yet, what moment are you looking forward to most?  And for the married girls, what moment was your favorite?



Photobooth fun

The photobooth was a lot of fun, and it was busy most of the night.  Our photobooth guy even stayed an extra hour because things were still bumping.  Thanks, Party Booths!  I already showed you some of my favorite pictures from the booth (I especially love the one man YMCA), but there was so much more than just that. I ncluding video from our videographer, Vanessa Mckellar.  For instance, don’t you want to see what someone’s face looks like when they find out their boyfriend has herpes?  Here’s an excerpt from our full-length video showing just that…

And, here are a few of my favorites from outside the booth.

My shoes were cute, but they were KILLING me, so I had to switch.  Too bad because I think the picture would have been really cute with them:

The kids really loved it too, especially the props:

And, the props weren’t just a hit with the kids:

But, of course going prop-less was popular too:

Maybe that’s because the props were making their way onto the dance floor via all my bridesmaids.

So are you going to do a photobooth?  Will you have props?



Yummy Cake!

Our first dance went well and we spent a little time on the dance floor.  Shortly after, our wedding coordinator told us it was time for the cake cutting and toasts.  Yay!!

I’m not sure how many times the kids had asked me when the cake cutting would happen, but at least I knew that I wasn’t the only one super excited about digging in.  But, before the kids (and I) could have some cake, Mr. Fro Yo’s brother and my sister had a few words for us.

Mr. Fro Yo’s brother started it off.  He lived with us right before our wedding, and also shortly after, so I wasn’t really sure what he was going to say, but his speech was super sweet.

Now, here’s the thing, Mr. Fro Yo doesn’t like alcoholic drinks of any kind, including champagne (I know, I don’t get it either),but dammit it was our wedding and he was going to take a celebratory sip of champagne even if he did not want to.  Check out my glance over at him to make sure he was indeed taking a sip:

I know he’s faking his sip, you can totally tell, but I let it slide.

After my peer pressure to get Mr. Fro Yo to drink, my sister followed with another sentimental toast.

And, it made us smile.

Lastly, it was our turn to thank our guests for celebrating with us.

Then it was really time for some cake!!

We had our knives from Z Gallerie:

I was nervous that I was going to do it all wrong,  but we started to cut anyway:

And you can see that I was nervous.

But, Mr. Fro Yo had a reassuring hand on my back:

And, we did it:

We gave one another a piece in a nice and sweet (no cake smash in my face) way:

And a little kiss:

We also had a groom’s cake, but I completely forgot about it, so we didn’t cut that one.

Our guests got some though (and no, we don’t work at the radio station, though I can understand why you might think that.  Mr. Fro Yo LOVES this sports station, like is totally obsessed with it, and so…he got the cake.  Somehow the station got wind of it, and they talked about our wedding on Monday.)

So, are you going the cake smash or non-cake smash route?
