When I got to the church, I changed back in to my dress, and made my way to the cultural hall where my family was. I walked in, and didn't know where I was. Kristine Peart was the decorator, and transformed the place, and it was absolutely GORGEOUS!!! It was exactly what I wanted. The colors were very vibrant, and there were gerber daisies EVERYWHERE!!! Well, everyone in the Wedding Party was supposed to arrive at the Church at 5pm that evening. The reception started at 6, and we needed time to take more pictures of family and what not. Well, Matt's family didn't arrive until anout ten til 6 because his brother in law was sick. So we made do with the time we had, and took some pictures of the fam. Then people started trickling in. Slowly at first, but then by 6:20, the place was packed, and no one was leaving!!! Haha Apparently our Wedding Reception was the place to be that night, cause there were SOOOOO MANY PEOPLE! We had a great time standing in the line to greet our family and friends that came to see us. Then, when my feet felt like I was walking on coals, we dissolved the line, and went out and had some fun. We cut the cake, and I thought all was safe after about 3 bites, and then Matt looked as thought he was going to go in for the kill with the stupid shove in the face act. So, instead of giving him the satisfaction, I beat him to the punch, and he had cake up his nose. Hahaha. Then he got it all over my forehead. I knew that his sight was a little sketchy, but my forehead?? Wow. Then there was the boquet toss. I got all my girls lined up behind me, and tossed that mother like there was no tomorrow (I had to be careful of the drop ceiling of course), and my friend JJ was the one that caught it (A little update on her, the weekend after my wedding, JJ got engaged!!! I guess it really does work!) Then the garter um... thing? Matt told me previous that he didn't want to take it off with his teeth, and I was just fine and dandy with that. Until he knelt down... He was seriously just going to take it off with his hands?! Heck no. I grabbed his head, and shoved it under my dress. I don't think anyone (including myself) was expecting this... But FREAK! It was FUNNY! The I had the dances with my MEN (Daddy and Matthew Blaine). Then we peaced the freak out! It was so fun! His best man, Markus Oler from Idaho, and his wife made us a little care package for the night. We had a lot of fun looking at the stuff in the bag, and confessing our confusion for a lot of the items. So that was it. We were officially on our honeymoon!
