Jaime and Chris, her husband, were totally beaming! I don't know that I've ever seen a groom's face as lit up as Chris'. Jaime walked down the aisle to a rock version of the wedding march. Everything about her wedding was like that - it's not something that you're expecting, but it totally fits and makes sense for Jaime.
|This picture says it all! The band let Chris sing a line of a song to Jaime and then he jumped off of the stage.|
The food was AMAZING! The drinks were AMAZING! The entertainment was AMAZING! To kick things off, she and my uncle Art did the obligatory father daughter dance. Jaime is a sap like myself. So when the song Butterfly Kisses started playing, I thought to myself, what the hell is she on?! Then, Art went up to the DJ and gave him some money.....and the Party Rock Anthem began playing. They had this whole thing choreographed. So fun! My next observation is that all music was dance and party music. No slow songs. This worked out for me because my family bailed pretty early. Jacob and I did get in a few good dances. Jaime had a Van Halen cover band play her wedding....apparently Chris is a huge Van Halen fan! That was probably the best money spent on the whole wedding in my opinion. The members of the band were so nice and they were extremely talented! Between sets, we did a Girls Flash Mob. I had too much to drink by that point, so I don't really know how I did. It was so fun! I've always wanted to do a flash mob....you know, since they became popular. ha!
|I love this picture! Matthew, Andrew, and Jacob playing with slugs....while dressed in their suits.|
After the wedding, those of us left standing met in the bar at the hotel. I only lasted a few minutes before I had to have Derek escort me to my room. I was sure I was going to be sick, so I just crashed in bed with my dress on. When I woke up the next morning, the boys asked if we were going to another wedding. Yeah....funny, but not my best Mom moment.
