Show Us Your Life: Wedding Reception and Honeymoon
This week's feature for Show Us Your Life at Kelly's Korner is reception pictures and honeymoon pictures.
As you know, Fred and I were married on April 5, 2008. This was the same day as the Final Four game for the University of Memphis basketball team. Our wedding was at 5:30pm and the tip off was at 5:40pm. At our reception, we decided to have a big screen tv there for all of the guests to watch. Fred and I actually had to wait to enter our own reception until after the game was over. Memphis ended up winning that evening, but lost in the championship game. Everyone loved the televisions and they still talk about them today.
My cake (strawberry cake with chocolate filling):
Fred's cake (a replica of the Univ. of Tennessee basketball court and white cake with bavarian creme filling):
The UT boys singing "Rocky Top":
My friends from high school (one of my fave pics and do you see the tv in the background?):
My sorority sisters gathered around me to sing (an ADPi tradition):
Leaving for our new life together:
Fred and I went to the Hawaiian island of Kauai for our honeymoon. It's the rainy island, but we had great weather. We took a helicopter ride, a boat ride, went snorkeling (something I don't ever care to do again) and we spent our last day on the island of Oahu. We had a great time! We'd definitely go back. Here are just a few pictures of our honeymoon:

I hope you enjoyed our wedding. We did!
