We need a fun poll on a Monday, a cold Monday here in Colorado.
So how about a wedding poll...
1. Where you married?
3. Style of dress?
6. Fill in the blank....add another thing about your wedding
1. Negril Jamaica (right on the beach)
2. April 21, 2007
3. A halter mermaid style. It was awesome.
4. Pool Blue.
5. We had a reception the following month in Michigan. Our cake was chocolate with vanilla filling and vanilla with raspberry filling. It was very yummy. The outside was covered with the pool blue fondant and there were waves piped on the side with a huge white chocolate shell on top.
6. I had one of my aunts embroid a swatch of fabric with my first name and wedding date. I sewed it in the inside of my dress on the bottom. I'm hoping to pass along the dress and have my daughter or DIL do the same thing.
1. Silverlake Winery
2. October 6th, 2007
3. You can see the top half in my sig, the bottom was that gathered cake frosting look (don't know the real name for it!)
4. Apple red, black and white
5. White with raspberry filling and chocolate with mocha filling, anniversary layer was pink champagne with Bavarian butter cream filling.
6. It was a gorgeous outdoor fall wedding! I wouldn't have changed a thing about it! Our DJ cut his hand while trying to catch a falling wine glass, he bandaged it up and kept on going though, he was awesome!
1. new hampshire
3. ummm- not sure
4. sage green & white
5. cake & cupcakes (many different flavors)
6. our wedding was a dry wedding so people left SUPER early :)
1. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on the beach at the Springmaid Beach Resort.
2. July 21, 2006 (the eve of the 5 year anniversary of the day we met). Iowa Reception Labor Day weekend 2006.
3. Halter style with beading above the empire waist
4. Pool blue
5. Two teirs with a chocolate and marble layer. Covered in pool blue cream frosting and white scroll work on the sides. The cake was made by my friend Nate who I have known since kindergarten. The cake and frosting was flown down with him and frosted down there. Thank God my wedding was a month before the 3 oz. liquids rule! (= The cake topper was two little lawn chairs Barbie suntan lotion and sunglasses and brown sugar sand.
6. There were water spouts (tornados) over the ocean in the morning when we woke up. Thankfully moving off shore and not on. I had two friends miss the wedding because of flight issues the day before. The wedding was at 10 am, noon reception, and swimming in the ocean by 2. It was awesome!
1. Cozumel, Mexico
2. March 11, 2006
3. Strapless fitted up top and bustled on the bottom.
5. White cake with raspberry filling.
6. We took a cruise with 70 of our closest friends and family from Galveston to Cozumel, then got married on the beach and made a long weekend out of it. I want to do it again!!
I had two weddings. One for military paperwork reasons, the other for family.
1. Las Vegas & North Dakota
2. November 13, 2004 & May 26, 2006
3. Plain white halter/Strapless with lots and lots of beading
4. Salmon & yellow
5. Some boring white cake that I got all over me. There was so much sugar in the frosting it felt like an exfoliant.
6. I lectured the groom and his men about the importance of being on time for pictures...our hair appointments ran late and it was us girls that were a little bit late for pictures. oops!

2. when? June 23, 2007

6. My something borrowed was a locket that was my gramdmothers. It was the first gift my grandfather gave her over 70 years ago. (they both have passed away). I pinned it to the ribbon around my bouquet. It was so beautiful. Both their pictures were inside so it truly felt like they were there with me the whole day.
1. Washington, DC
2. September 8th, 2007
3. Dropped waist, pick-ups, and sweetheart neckline (I had my dress custom made this way, otherwise, it would have been straight across) - my dress was one of my favorite things about my wedding. I was so in love with it!
4. Pink and medium brown (latte)
5. Half vanilla, half chocolate with dulce de leche filling (YUM) with fondant. My cake was also one of my favorite things! We recently had our top layer on our anniversary and it was just as good as on our wedding day.
6. DH was born Christian, he's more Buddhist now, and I am Jewish. We honored all three faiths in our ceremony. We had one of the most unique ceremonies I've ever heard of (and many of our guests said the same thing!) I was really pleased.
I've got photos of my wedding in my Knot and Nest bios!

2. When? June 30, 2007.
3. Style of dress? Strapless with beading along top, gathers and small beading on bottom half.
4. Colors? Black. My gals came from four states and another country. I just told them to find a black dress with a little bling and go with it. It worked out great.
5. Cake? White buttercream icing with pink accents. Bottom layer was Italian cream with raspberry mousse filling, middle layer was raspberry liquor, the top was chocolate liquor with the raspberry mousse filling. I couldn't choose just one kind.
6. We had our reception at the large occassion room at Sneaky Pete's Marina. We were supposed to leave the wedding by boat, but it had rained so much that spring that when my brother went the day before the wedding to make sure we had three boat slips reserved, he discovered that the ramp to the docks was now under water. It hadn't been just three days previously. So, the afternoon before the wedding, I was scrambling to find a limo for a Saturday night. Ended up finding a classic Daimler that worked out great.

My family did the reception food ourselves, we all got together with the church ladies and cooked, it was fun. We had homemade dinner rolls, meats, cheeses and salads. We also had deviled eggs.

6. Fill in the blank....add another thing about your wedding: I am so glad that my grandmother was there. She gave me a small gift the morning of our wedding - they were little porcelain elves that my grandpa bought for her in India when he was stationed there during WWII. She wrapped them in TP and put them in a styrofoam take out box, because she wanted to wrap them herself and that was all the hotel could find for her. I love them and when I see them, I think about how sweet it was that she gave me those as a wedding gift.
