I’m super nostalgic today about how great my wedding was.

When Hubs and I got married, I really struggled to find a song to dance to.

Hubs and I are rock addicts. To such an extent that we arranged out enire music song list for my brother who was our DJ because every DJ we found refused to play Def Leppard. They’re the epitome of true rock-stardom.

If you can’t remember, we had “Pour Some Sugar on Me” for our cake cutting song. *Strangest thing: no one called my wedding ‘lovely’ and ‘feminine’. Sad day*

How awesome are we?

So Hubs and I are anal retentive about our music. Here we are to display our awesome tastes to our community…

We pondered greatly about ‘our song’. Sure, there is a plethora of sappy sweet songs, including but not excluding those by Shania Twain, Nat King Cole and you know people like Britney Spears.

But we are rockers.

Then I heard it. The perfect song to start our married life on.

God Bless you Live. You rock my heart out.

Halfway through the song, I stopped dancing with my groom and asked my dad to dance with me. After a chorus with my dad, my mom took my place and I went back to Hubs. It was so sweet and meaningful to us, and absolutely delightful.

What fun it is to remember!

The Wedding overview

Ok guyus. this is the last post I’ll post about the wedding. Unless of course you HAVE to hear more… But then even that is a gamble. There is just so much going on in my day that I can barely breathe nevermind think about how glorious my wedding was.

So here is the final post about the wedding. Next I promise to bring back the humourous, snarky insightful writer you all fell in love with (please you are too kind)

Here are our centrepieces:

We sunk gladiolas, roses and… get this… chillies… in vases.

This is our guest book. We had a scrapbook for our guests, they signes and decorated the page as they liked and we took their photo to place on the designated square. It was a huge hit. Awesome.

This is the hall we held our reception in:

The arches sasid, Cherish, dream and live. Our wedding theme was: “Cherish yesterday, dream tomorrow, live today”.

Here’s where I met my groom. My baby sister is behind me. Love it.

Random Photos…

Love it!

Moments that I cannot erase.

This might be the most random snapshot I have of my day but it is my favourite one of just me. Perhaps it’s because the giddiness I felt at the moment was perfectly captured and I can look at the haziness and remember the blurry joy that danced around my vision as my husband and I exited the chapel.

There are some moments that pass us by without being remembered. This moment is one that will outshine them all.
