Just our luck for
a few weeks prior to our wedding day, Eschol Park had suffered floods
and heavy rains. We were very worried about our day and it didn’t
help that I had to get up at 5am on the day and it was still very
dark out side. I was frantic about rain, but the heavens were on
our side as the sun rose and shone brilliantly all day!
Our ceremony was short but beautiful.
I walked down a red carpet with my father to Johnny Cash's "The
First Time Ever I saw Your Face". I mouthed "I Love You"
to Scott on the way down. I immediately handed my chief bridesmaid
the bouquet and took his hands in mine. We spoke our own vows and
our photographer hit his head really hard on the gazebo behind us
attempting to get a great photo which sent the bridal party into
hysterics but to which Scott and I were oblivious. We signed the
papers to Hunters and Collector's "Throw You Arms Around Me"
and walked back down the aisle as husband and wife as guests threw
cones filled with pink and green rose petals.
Following was our reception,
held at Eschol Park House. It was in the grand ballroom with a shabby
chic vintage theme. The venue was a sea of pale pinks and pale mint
greens. I designed the bomboniere which were pink and green bacardi
breezer bottles with a vintage wallpaper label with our initials.
We entered the reception as husband and wife to Frank Sinatra's
"Love and Marriage".
Our music was mainly old school
rock and roll but we cut our cake to "I Like Candy", danced
our waltz to Aerosmith's "Don't Wanna Miss A Thing", Scott
removed my garter with his teeth to Christina Aguilera's "Aint
No Other Man" and I threw the bouquet to Shania Twains "I
Feel Like a Woman". Our cake was three tiers and laced up like
a corset with white ribbon and featured roses tinted with mint green.
The food was incredible and the atmosphere was pumped!
