Our wedding is 8 months away and I havent even started looking at dresses...I feel so overwhelmed and have no clue where to start...I just wanted to say "Aloha" and mahalo (thanks) for the inspiration!
Welcome and thank you! I didn't decide on my gown design until about 8 months out, and I had to make it! Oh, and I love your screen name by the way!

My favorite part! I couldn't wait to get to the reception just to see how that cake turned out! I almost didn't want to eat it. Almost.

Thanks for sharing!
Thank you! And yes, yes they are. I want another wedding just to have an excuse to use them again!

They did. Our florist sent us tons of pictures of vases and votives to pick from.
And now I just need to find an reason to wear that gown again!

Alright, I think I'm just going to push through and do two final posts to make it through the rest of the pictures. So! We first have the awesomeness of Kathryn Flocken and her magic scissors. Seriously magic. She had a crowd all night long it was so impressive. I do silhouettes at home, but I draw them out first. She just goes at the paper with gusto and is done in what seems like seconds. Here's my niece as her first sitting:

The end result:

She makes two of each. One for the guest to take home and one goes in a small book that can be used as a guest book. Two in one!

And only the Roots can make Soy Sauce look this amazing:

For the toast we used my grandparents wedding glasses circa 1942. We have a huge set of them, but only brought two for us. We didn't want to risk the possibility of breaking that many!

Since both of the groomsmen weren't speech giving types, my bridesmaids and my aunt gave speeches. I think this was the point they were proud of themselves for setting up my elaborate proposal.

They ended with a really cheesy comment about wishing upon a star and dreams coming true, which was supposed to be funny. Then Erin started to tear up and I had no hope!

I gave my Aunt less than 24 hours notice for her speech. Which may seem last minute. But you don't know my family. I did that so there would be no props involved and no grand skits written. They've done everything from a surprise redneck wedding to a fake funeral to parades to taking my Aunt to "court" over her misadventures (with a real judge). I knew she'd manage something great on short notice!

Next came cake. Yum. Ken even showed us how and where to cut, thank goodness. You may have seen a dozen weddings, but when it comes time you have no clue!

The story of our lives. I'll let you do it so I won't screw it up. Or get stabbed.

I still want to lick the screen every time I see this.

I'll be honest, I don't know Evan's cousin's kids very well. But, this kid is adorable! The hat was at least three inches longer than his head.

Evan by this point had discovered that the whole front section of the cake was all sugar, and therefore edible (except for the LEDs of course). He proceeded to inform EVERYONE.

The lights were still my favorite part though.

Next came the first dance. I'm awfully proud of this. I choreographed an Astaire/Rogers type number to "Beyond the Sea". Which doesn't seem long until you have to choreograph it all!

Evan managed it quite well considering I only had a month to teach him (and me).

Lots of lifts:

We almost made it through without mistakes. But we both forgot about four eight counts near the end! Still fun though.

I dragged the bridesmaids out for one dance:

And Evan made extra sure to prove, for all posterity, that it is really edible.

Wave goodbye!

I'm new to the boards, and as I want a Disney wedding, this is the first place I looked! Your wedding looked amazing! The boardwalk photoshoot is beautiful. Such a perfect fit for your theme! I can only imagine the work you put into the wedding but it seems to have paid of! Congrats on your wedding!
