After all the portraits were taken, the bridesmaids help me bustle my gown (in record time, I might add!), then we were off in the limo to the reception!

Things one should think about when thinking of transportation:
-How big is your dress?
-Does it require its own seat?

It was fine in the limo, really, I just think my poor husband was squashed by the dress ever-so-slightly. It was a fun ride though, with the wedding party and gearing up for the reception!

After the limo pulled up to Amerigo's, Matt helped me out of the limo and in we went!

Checking out the wedding cake and the Groom's pies

I realize now that I failed to blog about the wedding cake design. Well, no better chance than now, yes? Anyway, as you can read about here, we used Kiss the Cook Cakes for our wedding cake. Here is our mock-up design:

The Bible verse we gave them was 1 John 4:19- "We love because He first loved us." At the very beginning of our wedding planning, I knew I could quickly become so wrapped up in all the details of the wedding I might lose sight of what was really important- our God-focused marriage. So for me, this was just a very tangible way of reminding myself of that through the planning and on the wedding day.

Now, instead of doing the traditional Groom's cake, Matt opted instead for apple pie. And these apple pies aren't just any pies. His grandmother baked all of those pies and then had them shipped to Houston 10 hours away. Words cannot express how grateful we were/are she was able to do that for us, especially since that set of grandparents couldn't come due to health reasons. It was really special, especially for Matt, as those homemade apple pies are his favorite food.
