8. what kind of food/ cake did y'all have? tell me about the topper!
christy: chris and i really aren't formal people, and we didn't want to change that for the big day. we served roast beef, chicken fingers, mac n' cheese, mashed potatoes, and green bean casserole. our desert bar was filled with banana pudding, berry truffle, thin mints, brownies and four different flavor cupcakes. our wedding cake just HAD to be strawberry because that is both of our favorite cake flavor.
i made our cake topper from a really beautiful christmas ornament I had saved for years. it's the ornament from our save-the-date video. I mounted the ornament on a cardboard box base, and adorned it with little craft store goodies. It ended up being one of my favorite details and i will always cherish it.
9. what was your favorite moment of the day(other than the "I do" of course)?
christy: our goodbye was EPIC. we were moving to california the next day, so we played phantom planet's "california." everyone was screaming the lyrics at the top of their lungs and going nuts. it felt like a scene from a movie. i'm surprised i didn't cry. it still gives me goosebumps.
10. what advice would you like to offer to brides-to-be? what do you wish someone had told you?
christy: when planning, stay true to yourself, but learn to compromise. make sure it is what y'all want, and don't worry what people will think. some of the older people that attended, who are only familiar with traditional weddings, said it was the best wedding they ever went to.
