You and Me: Wedding Shenanigans

Our wedding reception seemed to disappear in a flash before my eyes. One minute we were just being introduced, the next minute we were dancing and mingling and it was almost time to leave. How did that happen?

We spent some time mingling with our guests and attempting to get to every table, which is way harder than it looks. Jase and I grabbed each other's hands and made the rounds, thanking our friends and sharing our excitement.
Meanwhile our guests continued to boogie...
... and mingle with one another on the dance floor.
It was at this point that Jase kindly offered to go and get me a cold beverage, since we were parched from all of the schmoozing. He headed towards the bar, I began chatting with a friend... and after a while, I realised that my new hubby had been gone for some time. Where'd he go? And where was my drink? A little searching, and I found him.
Well, lookie here: a certain someone got sidetracked at the open bar. But he wasn't alone...
Those sneaky groomsmen!
It's ok, though. I also made my way to the bar. And why wouldn't I, when we had these babies waiting for us? Mo-straws! Made with love by my Maid of Honour & loved by all!
But, like all good parties, the wedding festivities were about to come to an end.

Let's start at the very beginning - it's a very good place to start.
Our wedding rehearsal went by in a flash.
We finished off our last minute projects at home.
I had some girly time the day before the wedding.
I checked into the bridal suite and spent the evening alone.
A prank call woke me up... to my wedding day!
The girls had their hair and make-up done.
The boys relaxed and took it easy playing pool.
It was finally my turn to get beautified!
I put my dress on & became a bride.
My bridesmaids and I rush, rush, rushed to the church & arrived early!
The wedding began with a processional...
Our guests waved us out of the church with our home-made ribbon wands.
We took some bridal snapshots in the wind and rain.
I took a few moments with my new husband, just he & I.
Our bridal party posed with us as the daylight began to fade.
We relaxed in the bridal suite.. and I got sewn into my wedding dress
All of our wedding details came together beautifully.
The Jaguar bridal party made their way into our reception...
And on the way there, I took a tumble & landed on my butt!
We were spoiled with gorgeous speeches from our loved ones.
Mr. Jaguar & I snuck out to take some evening portraits.
We got tangled up in champagne toasts & cut our lovely cake.
Our first dance, to 'You and Me', was a bumbling success.
We got our slow dance on & opened the floor with a little jazz.
The party started & our guests put on their dancing shoes!

Your nan with the straw is probably my favourite thing ever.

Another sign of a great wedding -- shots! At my wedding, Tim and the groomsmen all did vodka shots with my mom. When I found out after the fact, I was so disappointed I missed out on that amazing bit of the party! Sadly, my wedding did not have mo-straws -- what a fabulous addition!
