Dancing the Night Away

My precious bridesmaids helping me with my dress to dance the night away.
Rhett's cake, Aunt Mary surprised him with his John Deere mower on top, this is so Rhett.
My sweet best friend, from high school, Blake and his fiance', Leah. I am so glad you both came.

Wedding cake, I think Aunt Mary did a fabulous job.... don't you?

the toast

First dance, "We are Man & Wife" by Michelle Featherstone

The traditional "dip" and sealed with a kiss. Btw, Rhett made the dance floor...notice the "W"

Father/Daughter dance.... this was so much fun. Back in the beginning I had asked my Dad what he wanted to dance to at my wedding and Dad being Dad, stated, "Black Water" by the Doobie Brothers. Why he would state that???? Well growing up, Dad is a classic rock man... and my sister and I knew most of the classic rock songs, and we feel in love with this song and after school when Dad would pick us up we would beg him to play, "Black Water". I told Dad that we could never dance to that we needed a more traditional song, therefore, Dad said I could pick out the music. Well, I got fed up with picking the PERFECT song and anyways, I told Dad as we were walking down the aisle....that we were dancing to "Black Water" and I knew his eyes and tears gradually increased as did mine. Anyways, we had the time of our life dancing to this song, a special song with a special meaning behind it.

Gettin' down.
Mother/Son dance....

THE SURPRISE DANCE.... the whole wedding party learned it and performed it. My friend, Haleigh, and I created this dance, videoed on Flipvideo and youtube it to all the wedding party. I will post a video of the dance later. We had a blast.... and Rhett isn't the dancing type and he did it.
