Kate and Colin had a wedding that in the words of the bride was " a party with a ceremony thrown in"!
The venue was 5226 Elm Street. The mood lighting was spectacular. From the hanging lights in the garden above the beautiful koi pond to the flashing balls in the floral vases, this wedding shouted FUN!
This was exactly what the bride wanted. As the guests walked in the bride greeted them in a cocktail dress and the groom in his Tuxedo imprinted t-shirt. They spared no expense to make sure the guests knew it was time to party! This was going to be the best night of their lives.
As the night went on the bride and groom slipped out and changed into their formal wedding attire and surprised the guests with a musical introduction from the movie THE PRINCESS BRIDE. Not only did they have the musical introduction, but in walked the priest from the movie. Everyone was so puzzled as the priest made his way to the front from the back of the crowd. Once the bride and groom had made their way to the platform the priest began "Mawiage, is what bwings us togeva today...". Family and friends were howling with laughter. Colin proceeded to tell the priest, "This is not what we asked for..." off walked the priest and in walked Whoopie Goldberg from the movie SISTER ACT in her flashy habit, singing her song. Then there was Elvis, a cowgirl, and a goth. Finally, the groom's cousin came in and performed a heart touching ceremony.
After the ceremony the party got back into full swing as everyone was invited to the reception hall for a Maryland/Texas style dinner.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself as I watched the bride and groom have their first dance and saw the look in the eyes of all the little children watching. I'm sure some of the little girls are going to have this wedding in the back of their minds as they plan their dream wedding.
Kate and Colin, I wish you all the best! May true love follow you forever and ever!
