One very cool and sentimental part of our wedding was the food, if you can believe that. I had known the caterer since I was twelve. I became very close with the family and ever since I was twelve he'd been saying I'm doing the food at your wedding. So nine years later, after having passed the business on, we hired the company for our special day. I walk into the church and who do I see....he had come back to run the catering that day. I totally bawled my head off. Every person we had at our wedding meant something to us. None of those attendance were people that were random friends of our parents, which is crazy to think about it because it was so many people. But Christopher and I had been involved with so much - volunteer work, boyscouts, dance, two churches over the years, different jobs, family friends that remained close to us over the years. I even had a kindergarten teacher who my family went to church with as well. We played a slideshow during our first dance, which happened to be the first slow dance we ever danced to on that very first date to junior prom - Angel of Mine by Monica...which incidentally I had engraved on his wedding band. Mine says, "My Princess" and then the date in military form of course, LOL - 14AUG2004. Such a nerd. Our cake topper was my parent's cake topper, with a couple things added to it like purple roses and some green ribbon.
Now onto some pictures......
