2. when you knew he was the one: self explanatory.. but how and when did you know?
3. proposal: how it happened, how long were you engaged for? was it a total surprise? pictures of that... etc.
4. the ring: tell us about it! did you pick it out? did he? pictures! tell us about his ring too!
5. engagement/bridal pictures: let's see em!
6. the colors: show some of the flower and colors you used
7. the dress: was it what you always imagined? did you have it made for you? white or ivory?
8. the little accessories: you know, veil? shoes? jewelry? what did your bridesmaids wear?
9. the reception: where was it at? show us some pictures! what day did you get married?
10. the cake/food: i love food. so tell me about what you had at your wedding!
11. favorite part of the day and least favorite part of the day: can be anything.
12. honeymoon: where did you go? was it good? ;) haha...jk.
13. thoughts on marriage: what is the easiest/hardest part? if you could change anything, what would it be?
14. first place that you lived together: pics if you have them!
15. kids: do you have any yet? if not, when do you plan on it? how many do you want? any tips on good/bad birth control?
16. most recent picture of you and your significant other and what you love most about them :) and any other thoughts.

Would you believe me if I said I have no pictures of the meals we served at our wedding?  I think everyone was starving and, really, who wants pictures of fish and chicken and steak?  Needless to say the meal was amazing... at least I know the steak was because I was not ladylike at all in the way I chowed that sucked down.  For those that haven't been a bride yet you have know idea how much it takes out of you.  Although I'd eaten breakfast very early that morning I was STARVING by the time that dinner rolled around.  We served a fish plate, a chicken plate and a steak plate.  I opted for steak with game with baby red potatoes and an enormous salad.  I'm sure it came with something else too but I was a little to enamored with the amazing steak.  Our venue served the BEST food, it was seriously delicious.

As for cake, we opted for a simple red velvet with butter cream frosting.  And yes, it tasted just as good a year later when we ate the frozen top on our anniversary.

We had a little bit of drama where the cake was concerned.  The lady was very nice the first time we talked over the cake and decided how it would look and taste.  However, later she was almost rude to me when I called to confirm everything.  It gave me such a bad vibe.  Luckily, the cake tasted great and in the end that's all that matters.

P.S. Please head over to Summer's blog Athena in the Middle and wish her a happy birthday!

beautiful cake! I've never tried red velvet cake... might have to now :)


Being a bride makes you hungry... I even went for second serving, I think I was the only girl doing so... lot's of the men didn't even go for seconds:)


I'm always amazed on those wedding shows when there's drama regarding the cake. You'd think it would be a simple part of a wedding day, but not really! I'm glad it turned out well for you after all!
