Six Years Ago...

....Jerk Face and I said 'I do'

It's been six years.  Six years?
My goodness.

June 4, 2005

We are officially closer to 10 years... and therefore closer to 20 years.. which is almost 40...  And then 75?  and then I guess death. My, what a rosy outlook. That's what living with Jerk Face does to a girl... 


We released butterflies at our wedding... A few weeks prior to our wedding, Jerk Face had went to Las Vegas with a group of his Marine buddies and lost $500 in less than hour : "Wesley Snipes says 'Bet on black!'"   Wesley Snipes was wrong. And because Wesley Snipes was wrong or because my future husband was an idiot?, we couldn't afford Monarch butterflies.. so I was forced to get their ugly step-sisters: The Painted Ladies.
...Maybe THIS is where 'Jerk Face' originates from?

Ugly Painted Lady on my dress

My cake.
I hated my cake.  HATED.
I brought a picture to the cake lady of exactly what I wanted.
Now, to be fair, we went to her house... she was probably in her mid to late 60's.. and will probably never be on Cake Wars or something like that... but! The fact remains that I gave her a picture of what I wanted and she said she could do it....
I wanted something like:
   
 or maybe even...
   
or perhaps...
 

but my cake? I'm too embarrassed to post a picture!

but I will.

for you,
my dear readers.
*sigh*
 are you ready?
...
..
.
I'm not...
but here goes nothing....



What in the heck?!
I know... the differences are subtle.
You MAY need to go back to the above cake pictures to see that they are in fact *NOT* the same...
I remember my Mom saying to me that "nobody knows what it was supposed to look like.. and it's really not that bad..."  
My Mother lied to me on my wedding day.
It did, however, taste really good... so there's that...
I'm thinking about how ugly this cake is...
I think I had cake in my ear and up my nose for the rest of the night.
(P.S. Jerk Face just told me that I looked good wearing the cake...
 yep, the romance is still alive...)

and now for some photos of the day:
My wedding party
On the party bus

I don't know who's motorcycle this was....

and we arrived!  
(an hour late)

and my family made the pillars*

Happy Anniversary Jerk Face!

Happy Anniversary! We are coming up on 10 this year. And your cake was nice, just a little...old looking :)
Love the red in your dress- very unique.

Happy anniversary!

I hope you just told everyone they were monarchs - because I can't tell the difference, so I doubt anyone else but YOU noticed :)

I had a similar annoyance when it came to my cake. It wasn't a cakewreck or anything...but it was very much NOT like the picture she said would be "easy" to replicate.

Aw, I love all of your photos. Congrats again! The cake isn't bad but it definitely doesn't look like the other photos, lol.
