Wedding Surprises

Posted on: Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Here's a look at some of the fun surprises we had at the wedding!

Ice Cream Truck-  What is better in the summer than surprise cold treats, delivered straight to you? Hardly anything. I thought it would be amazing to have an ice cream truck roll up during the party, and that's what happened! The Funky Freezer came, playing music, and stayed for cocktail hour.Guests could select any treat they wanted. Kyle and I went up first and got some flavored ice, which I proceeded to open and set down on a fence and never ate (photo time!), but I think the guests enjoyed it! The truck also made for some fun photos!

Bagpipes- I had no idea what sort of music we should have for the ceremony start and end, and I can't remember where the bagpipes idea came from, but my mom found a local professional to play for us! I don't think I saw or spoke to this guy on the actual day, but the bagpipes really added a lot as guests arrived and with the ceremony. (My husband is part Scottish. I mean- McPherson).

Caricature- I've mentioned this before, but I just love the caricature idea. It's such a great souvenir that guests can take with them, and it was a lot of fun to see guests' caricatures through the evening! :) You can see another post all about the caricatures here.

Cornhole- We had cornhole to entertain our guests during cocktail hour. I was oblivious to most of the going-ons of cocktail hour, as we were taking family/wedding party photos at that time, but I wanted to make sure there were some activities to entertain the guests (ice cream truck, cornhole, food, drinks, good company). Our photographer got some great shots of people playing.

Candy & Dessert Bar- I didn't want to just have one dessert option for guests, so we had a whole bunch instead! I set up a candy bar, using large glass jars, some milk glass vases I found on Etsy, and some burlap wrapped vases. I easily decorated some paper bags, decorated the table, and it was set! Aside from our amazing wedding cake, we had a fruit tart, chocolate cake, and carrot cake from Wegmans, to offer some variety. I think guests really enjoyed snacking on the candy through the evening.

Abigail's Birthday- The day of the festivities also happened to be my bridesmaid Abigail's birthday! So we surprised her with a cake (her favorite- red velvet, made by the same lady who made the wedding cake) and a round of "Happy Birthday." She was completely surprised, and it was awesome!

Fireworks- on the drive up to PA we stopped at a place in Tennessee and Kyle picked up some fireworks to set off at the end of the night!

The Week in Photos

Posted on: Tuesday, November 20, 2012

 Hux-man outside/ Stickygrams/ catching up on Castle on a Friday evening
 pumpkin card from Tracy/ D doing her thing on the door/ my old moose bag!/ Huxley on the futon
 Saturday outing/ religious pamphlets at the door/ Kyle and miss D/ cobb salad
doing homework at B&N/ skinny jeans, skinny belts, and some other ON goodies/ looking at bikes/ drinky drink (I didn't really like it :/)
kitty cats/ updating our door decor/ crockpot cashew chicken
hot chocolate and planning for the week/ cider and research/ futon kitties/ miss D

My sister is flying in from Boston today for like, a twelve hour visit (approximately 48 total in Texas). I have internship up through part of the evening, so husband is picking her up sur la moto. We haven't exactly told her that. Should be a hoot and a half. Thanksgiving break officially starts tomorrow! I have learned that it is much harder to find somewhere to volunteer to serve food on turkey day, so Kyle and I have no plans for the day. There's only two of us, so cooking a whole big meal doesn't make much sense (though I would if he wanted me to!). We may go on post to eat. We may stay in pjs all day, watch the parade and work on homework.

 I ordered these awesome instagram magnets (Stickygrams) a little while ago, and they arrived in the mail yesterday! They are really cool (even Kyle thinks so); I've never printed or had any instagram photos anywhere than on my phone and computer, so it's nice to see a selection of them up around the house.
