I decided to make a Flip Flop Basket for our reception, because I was at a wedding last year and ...
I hope that your wedding plans are coming together. Congratulations to the newly wed and the newly engaged brides! I know I've missed a lot and have been MIA. Married life is wonderful and very busy.
Here are some photos of the wedding reception. All of these photos are of us dancing. Our first dance was to I've Had The Time of My Life from the Dirty Dancing Movie Soundtrack. Dee and I practiced every day for months leading up to the wedding. We nailed it perfectly! Except of course the lift. I did not want him to lift me up into the air as I'm kind of a big girl and it would be disastrous if not highly comedic. So we did something unique. We did a forward high jump that landed us into a fun body bump. We didn't tell anyone that we were going to do this so of course when I started running towards him people were wondering if we were really going to do the lift. When they saw the body bump they cheered and exclaimed in approval. It was pretty funny. Our Best Man and Maid of Honor helped out with the dance. After the body bump we invited others out onto the floor to dance with us for the rest of the song. Then we went right into the Cupid Shuffle. The dancing continued from there until the closing with fireworks to the song We Are Young by Fun.
Dee and I love to dance. We dance together all of the time. He's the best dance partner I've ever had. Even in my younger years, when I was a dancer and professional choreographer I never had a dance partner that made me feel so alive when I danced with them. Perhaps it's because I'm in love with this one. LOL
Since we love dancing we had Fire Dancers, Shamadan Dancer, Fire Eater, and twirler at our wedding. The very sexy fire eater/dancer gave Dee and I a side by side lap dance while she ate and played with the fire. That was VERY fun! haha
The Shamadan/Fire/Belly Dancer gave us a belly dancing lesson and taught us how to do a seductive dance. What was so shocking about this was that Dee was actually better at the belly dancing than I was!! He mimicked her moves for me while I sat in the chair and was entertained by the both of them shaking their hips and rolling their bodies to the romantic Egyptian music.
Everyone was laughing and cheering. It was a really great time!
I'll be sure to share more photos soon. There are tons of more photos from the reception. We had fireworks, cake pops, magicians, and lots more fun. It's just too much for one recap blog.
