Joining in again with Cheryl’s blog-party over at Twinfatuation, and continuing the theme of pre-baby photos.
In fact, this time we have to celebrate this very week four years ago… Our Halloween wedding in Disney World was a whole extended weekend o’ fun. As a destination wedding, and because it was on a Sunday, people really made a trip out of it and we had a blast. I’ll never forget, we arrived and checked in at the Grand Floridian on Wednesday night, and got into our hotel room just in time to turn on the TV and see the Boston Red Sox win the World Series. Yay for them and all, but did I mention we’re getting married this weekend?!
Friday evening, which was four years ago this very day, we had a little welcome party at a restaurant. It was fun, but when the party was done, my dad’s family wasn’t. Oh, how convenient, a Hooters across the way! Off went my dad’s entire side of the family and nearly all of the bridal party. Yes, my first and only time at a Hooters was my wedding weekend. Wings, anyone?
Saturday was manicures and pedicures for me and my girls, the rehearsal, and the rehearsal dinner. Much fun was had, M and I were appropriately roasted. After the rehearsal dinner, we all headed to the bar at the Grand Floridian. M and I were lucky that the shots of tequila didn’t affect us the next morning. The most spectacular, though, was one of M’s groomsmen getting hammered and shouting that he was “angry and fertile” while stumbling down the grand staircase at the hotel. I don’t think we’ve stopped laughing about that one yet.
The morning of the wedding, I booted M out of our room when the hair and makeup ladies showed up, and everything ran right along like clockwork. Maybe another time I’ll give the full run-down of the event, but for today I’m just remembering how fun the run-up was.
