Later came the cake cutting (it was simply the most amazing artisan wedding cake from Restoration Cake – thanks Charlotte!) and we took a little break from that point so that the cake could be taken away for cutting. Once cleared, we had our first dance. Now, I expect you are all thinking that I had rehearsed something to rival the best of YouTube. In fact, I hadn’t – I had helped plan so much that I wanted this to be slow, pure and personal. What better than the traditional first dance shuffle?!
From that point on the party really got started. Our DJ, Steve, was amazeballs. Simply the best disco I have ever been to. The night was one big party, and everyone joined in which was awesome. Highlights were the photo booth that we had arranged with our photographer in a side room that was run by a second shooter so Mark could still take snaps through the evening.
Other highlights were spending as much time as I could with our evening guests, air guitar to Bon Jovi, coordinated dancing to Saturday Night Fever, and most importantly my wife rapping Vanilla Ice’s Ice Ice Babyword-for-word.
The end of the night came all too quickly. I’m still remembering things and just writing this post has made them flood back. The only downside? I can’t write about getting married to you all, but perhaps I can review what it’s like being married from time to time.
Thanks to you all for taking this journey with me
