Becca and Devon's Wedding!

We survived the wedding! It was beautiful. I can't think of one thing we'd change, not even the snow that dropped on us in the morning. At the reception the couple danced to Norah Jones, Come Away With fitting -

Come away with me in the night
Come away with me
And I will write you a song.....

I want to walk with you
On a cloudy day
In fields where the yellow grass grows knee-high
So won't you try to come

Come away with me and we'll kiss
On a mountaintop
Come away with me
and I'll never stop loving you....

Okay now I know I'm getting carried away with the mushy stuff but trust me it was so awesome. As a mom it is so comforting to know that your daughter is in good hands, loved and happy. Below are some pictures that my sister Nancy took. We won't have the professional pictures for a couple of weeks. I think these are pretty good though.

The happy couple

They left through a tunnel of waving sparklers.

Not exactly Craig and I at our best but we were sure having a good time. Becca made it clear that she wanted her reception to be fun, more like a party and absolutely NO RECEIVING LINE. I found the idea online to make a photo booth. I bought several fun props at the dollar store and hung a red silk sheet I bought for $2.00 at D.I. and we had an instant photo booth. We just used my camera and downloaded the pictures into a photobucket account so our guests can go there and view and print their own photos. Since my camera doesn't have a trigger, Jaimie and Tyler were the photographers. Thanks for doing a great job guys! It was a great addition to the reception.

Devon thought he and Becca could be twins with this blonde wig, hmmm I don't think so! I just love this picture of Becca. Devon is all personality!

Me and my girls

My Grandkids, they didn't really get the whole photobooth concept. Although they are adorable no matter what!

Me and my girls again


Kayla was obsessed with the candy buffet.

The chocolate fountain! Need I saw more? I'll just tell you about my personal favorite. Those little cream puffs, ahh, the blissful sweetness of dipping one of those in a warm liquidy curtain of chocolate! It was seriously like a dream!

This picture was taken behind the professional photographer, outside on the temple steps. Yes that is snow on that black coat. I know this picture is fuzzy and tilted but I like it. Look at those sweet, patient, freezing little girls. They actually smiled for the camera.

The guys!

The Candy Buffet. This is another idea I got online. We had cellophone bags for guests to fill with candy as a favor. There was caramel popcorn and cinnamon sugar pretzels both drizzled with white chocolate that was tinted blue, blue salt water taffy, hershey kisses, hot tamales, red vines, blue candy canes, peppermint puffs, and hershey bars with a custom blue label. It was an awesome idea and the guests seem to like it as they left with a loaded bag.

Tammy gave Becca a Bridal Shower a couple of nights before the wedding. Since Devon and Becca met while working at In and Out, that was the theme. Tammy did a phenomenal job. She served hamburgers with all the trimmings for dinner. The dessert was a cupcake made to look like a hamburger. Honestly it looked so much like a hamburger. She also made french fries out of sugar cookie dough, these looked very real as well. Tammy really out did herself. I have never attended a more put together shower. Thanks so much Tammy! If you'd like her recipes or ideas leave me a message and I'll pass it on to her. The picture above is Becca opening one of her gifts, of course she had to have a scanky nighty, right?

Tammy interviewed and recorded Devon to get answers to some "How well do you know each other" questions. Becca had to guess what his answer was and if she got it wrong had to chew a piece of bubble gum and add a piece for every wrong answer. Lets just say she had a mouthfull of gum by the time it was done. It was so fun!

These are the hamburger and french fry desserts talked about in my previous picture. I wish I had a closer picture.
