Moony Monday Memories

Party_Horns_215 Every week, I check out Gayle’s Monday Memories blog party over at Planet M Files. But I’ve never actually participated — I’m like that party crasher who shows up and doesn’t bring a bottle of wine ;-) So this week, I'm being a proper party guest and contributing to the party with a Monday Memories post :-)

Last week, a Twitter friend posted a link to these unique wedding cake toppers. We had a unique topper on our wedding cake, and I wanted to find it and post a picture of it. As I was going through all the wedding pictures looking for one of the topper,  I saw lots of smiling faces, drunk people, my cousin’s wife with her eyes closed and a napkin on her head, a Marilyn Monroe impersonator, a mouthful of food, and a set of boobs. And there’s this classic picture that’s been on our fridge door since the fall of 2001 (close your eyes if you’re easily offended!!):

MMM moons

Hahahhaha!! Hubby and I had fun trying to figure out whose butts they are. The girl was easy, but the guys took a bit more thought!!

So as you can see, it was a pretty relaxed, informal kind of wedding!! And our cake topper fit in perfectly. I don’t have it anymore and I can’t find any close-up shots of it, but I think you can see it pretty well in this picture:

You had to know that our wedding colour scheme was purple :-)

My best memories of our wedding day…

Grandma being my Matron of Honour even though she’d had a stroke a month before our wedding. She was in a wheelchair and she couldn’t say much or do much, but she was there and she was smiling and that made my day :-) We even managed to convince her nurse and the ambulance driver to come inside and have dinner & cake :-)

Dwayne telling hubby that he forgot the ring and hubby (and everyone else!) believing him — and people frantically running around trying to find a ring to borrow for the ceremony. Gotcha!!

The sunset during the ceremony.

Seeing all of our family and friends having a good time. Especially during the scavenger hunts!!

The photographer getting hoisted way up into the air to take this group shot:

And of course, marrying my dude :-) We had our eight anniversary this past September, so looks like we made it past the 7-year itch :-)

Be sure to head over to Planet M Files to check out more Monday Memories…

Gayle said...

Kelly, you had some wild wedding! Hahaha!

You're on twitter? Do I follow you on twitter? I don't go on that often, so I don't remember!

Christy said...

Oh what fun! I love that you had a purple themed wedding!

Puna said...

Oh my gosh Kelly, too funny. Was one of the butts your gradpa or uncle? That would be very embarrassing for sure.

Oh Kelly, I knew from the get-go you were my kind of gal! What a fabulous wedding. I am touched about your grandmother & the thought of the sunset as a back-drop. Truly a fabulous evening for all. The cake topper is priceless but the butt shot is stellar. All in all, spectacular ~ Xx deb
