Weekly Winners/Sunday in My City

Weekly Winners and Sundays in my City are two fun photo memes that are a great way to start your week :)

Remember this gorgeous bride from our Halloween party?

Well, believe it or not, that bride was a man! I know--it's simply shocking, as shocking as this display during the party!

I can't tell you how happy I was to be invited to their real wedding (which took place this weekend). Jed and Sara looked like royalty...

And for the record, there was no garter display at the real reception, which was spectacular; they had ice sculptures, amazing hors d'oeuvres (Shout out to Liz and Michelle for helping with this spelling!!), and even these fun bloody-Mary mementos.

As if that wasn't fun enough, they even had a Photo Booth! Since Sara's parents are good friends of ours from the neighborhood, at one point a bunch of us neighbors piled in there and took some pretty funny photos. Sorry I don't have those shots, but here are some of me and Mr.4444 being cute.
Sorry for the poor quality here; they actually look quite nice in real life. The photo people took another copy and put it in an album for the bride and groom, and we wrote a little note for them next to it on the page. How cool is that?!

And finally, I snapped this sweet shot at the wedding with my zoom (but no flash). I think you'll agree; it's still precious.

  5. The photo booth idea is awesome. I love that they had a copy for themselves that you could add a message to. That'll be fun to look at over the years!

  6. Sara makes for a much better looking bride than Jed. He should definitely stick to being a groom.

    A photo booth at a wedding reception. What a nifty idea.

    The flower girl and the ring bearer make a great couple themselves.

  7. Beautiful pics! I was in a wedding one time and they had disposable cameras at each table for the guests to take pics! It was awesome! Some of the pics were better then the paid photograpers!

  15. Ohhhh! That looks like a FUN wedding! And I have to say it - the real bride looks way more spectacularly beautiful than the Halloween bride... ;) How fun to have a photo booth, too!

  18. The Photo Booth is such a great idea. I want to get married again so I can have all the fun of planning a wedding again. After all, the last one was 25 years ago and they didn't have all this cool stuff back then. Heck, they didn't even have cell phones, laptops, or DVR's back then either! Ancient history!

  20. nice favor and beautiful dress, I love weddings.

  21. Awww that's so sweet! I LOVE that dress. And the little bloody mary mix is such a neat idea, too. (btw, hors d'oeuvres - they're plural)

    We had a photo booth at the fundraiser I was at on Friday. Unfortunately we never made it to the photo booth. But ummm considering it was 80s night and I had a side pony tail with my shoulder padded dress, that may have been a good call ;)
