It looks like all of your guests had a blast! Where/how did you book DJ Paul? I really want to make sure that our DJ is really good and I watched some of your video and he seemed really fun and like he had good energy. Your cake was so pretty. I am trying to figure out how to steal a picture of your cake table b/c I want my cake to be that exact same thing (if you have a pic you could send me that would be so awesome Sparkles8300@hotmail.com
). I also love the fact that they pulled off that slideshow for you. How cool is that!!!!!! At what point in the night did you suprise everyone with the fire dancer? After the cake cutting? Also, (sorry for a million questions) could you email me the link to your TTD shoot. We are doing our TTD at Moon Dance Cliffs & Villas during our honeymoon so any location suggestions would be awesome. I def want a picture of us holding hands and jumping off the cliffs. I am so happy for you guys & wish you the best with your new live as husband and wife!
Thank you so much for the comments! And GREAT choice on the colors (haha!) Everyone LOVED them and while my mom was a bit hesitant that they too "loud" in that kind of environment they looked PERFECT! I was extremely pleased with how lovely everything looked! And Kerry really went above and beyond with making it look that way!
I was very pleased with the rose/starfish arrangment and loved that Rosemarie from Floral Fantasy did such a great job with it! I have to add however that we had been in contact beforehand and I wasn't sure how many rows of chairs we would have (b/c I didn't know how the Cliffs would arrange them). Rosemarie told me that it wouldn't be a problem and that if more were needed she'd have them ready. Well if you look at the rows, you will notice that the back row did not have them. Not a big deal at all and nobody really noticed. I didn't even tell Rosemarie - actually, I didn't even see her! So she might have corrected it had I told her. They were $35/piece and I was glad to see that the Cliffs moved them over to the reception site without me saying a thing!
I loved my dress! However, I got in an argument with the owner of the store I got the dress from - long story short I bought a dress off the rack, left it at the store for my dad to come by the next day, and when I came in the next day I had changed my mind and just did not want the dress! Well she was all huffy and puffy about it saying they have a strict no return policy which I said, well I don't want to return it, but can I exchange it? Well we went back and forth for awhile, but she finally let me exchange it for the dress you see in the pics - and I LOVED it! However, I think she deliberately ordered me a dress one size too small! I watched her measure me and I had to keep on correcting her! She would say a smaller number than what was on the tape! Then she was like, okay based on these measurements your size is X. And I was like, um, I think I should get size Y since it's easier to take something in than let something out. Well she ordered the smaller size! Ahh! But I made it my determination to "show her" by fitting into that dress!

Absolutely LOVED it in the end!
I LOVED DJ Paul! He was AWESOME! THe MC was Oliver and he was quite hilarious! I absolutely love music so I actually created the list of songs I wanted and the order of them, and Paul was really happy with that!
He actually said that he made a bunch of CDs from my songs for himself! Here's his email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Oliver was with DJ Paul and had great energy! Very funny and danced with a lot of the guests, including my mother in law!
Too cute! The only thing was that he had his wife/girlfriend with him - which was fine - but she actually caught my bouquet which I thought was a bit inappropriate. Going so far as to snatch it out of my friend's arms - yikes!
LOVED the cake! Turned out prettier than I imagined it! As I told Neha, I don't have the pics on this computer, but Brian mailed me a DVD with all the jpegs (and they are not copyrighted so I can share them with all my friends which is really nice!) so I will email you a picture when I get to the DVD! If you just want to let me know the number of the picture, that would be great!
As for the fire dancer, Oliver and Paul said that they would bring him out when the energy was down - well the energy was actually never down! So at one point (definitely after the cake cutting) they just asked us all to leave the dance floor for the surprise - turned out perfectly!
Okay, I think I covered everything except for TTD, which I am going to put in a separate post...
Please don't worry about the questions! I was JUST in the same position so I understand the millions of questions that go through your mind at any given moment! Hit me with them all!
