|Lovely Other Dragons do love to shop, |
especially for shoes as cute as these!
In this very funny and cute love story, the main characters are a fierce male dragon and a lovely female dragon.
|Wedding dresses can help keep the bride WARM!|
And, to just take in the fact that John and Chris are married!!!
I loved how the couple had so much support in making their day special: everyone chipped in to decorate the hall, Chris's Aunt Janice handpainted signs for the cupcakes, for the piano and for the "Mr. and Mrs," plus Janice and Nancy painted all the lanterns used for the table centerpieces. It truly was a community event.
The bride and groom decided to make their wedding memorable with food and beverage favorites: brick oven pizza from Inferno Catering, pickles put up by John's mother as part of an antipasto plate, cupcakes from Hello Cupcake and beer (both John's brew and three selections of Rocky Coulee beer made in Chris's home town of Odessa). The guests were all smiling.
So the Dragon and the Lovely Other Dragon sealed the deal with one more kiss and became Mr. and Mrs!
Wishing the two a life-time of happiness!!!
" Thank you so much for being at the wedding. We had such a great time, and in the midst of all the craziness, it wonderful to have someone as calm as you. We had tons of compliments about you (even from people from Odessa, who are hard to impress!)"John and Chris had very good things to say about all the wedding professionals who helped make their day special. When the wedding needed to be rescheduled because Chris's mom passed away just days before their scheduled celebration, the wedding professionals were very supportive in adjusting to the new date. "They are such great reminders that there are still wonderful people in the world!"
~ Chris and John
Kudos to Eric Ross of ECR Photography (for letting me tag along and snap these pics). Chris has known Eric and his family since she was young. She used to babysit for his children! She described him as "great," a true professional.
Jennifer Iovanne played the piano during the ceremony. I enjoyed meeting her and Chris said she was so lucky to find her -- she is both incredibly nice and a great pianist too!
The DJ was Chris Curtis from South Bay Sounds. John and Chris found him through a friend and they were very pleased. They said "he plays great music for all ages and knows when to play what."
Floral arrangements were by Windmill Garden, who the couple said was amazing to work with. Even though they had already ordered the flowers for the first wedding, they didn't charge John and Chris for them! Very nice, indeed!
The beer was from Rocky Coulee. The owners' son is a good friend of John's from high school and Chris's mom was a member of the "backroom girls," who meet on Fridays for a beer, to play a few games and to enjoy some conversation. The bride and groom have reserved some of their wedding "pint" glasses to contribute to the group as a tribute to Chris's mom.
