Pinot Butter & Jellies: Mr. & Mrs.

March 17, 2011

Last we left off, we had just been pronounced husband and wife.

“Please join me in welcoming…Mr. and Mrs. Garrett and Monica Jellyfish!”

I love my MOH’s giddy expression in this picture.

Our DJ then cued the song we had chosen to walk back up the aisle to.  The lyrics of this song resonated with me even when we first started seriously dating…”Wouldn’t it be nice if we were older, and we wouldn’t have to wait so long…you know it’s going to me it that much better, when we can say goodnight and stay together…we could be married, and then we’d be happy, wouldn’t it be nice?”  LOVE.  Such a happy song, and it was so perfect for the way we felt at that moment.

We made our way back up the aisle, towards the saber arch.

I don’t know how much of you know about saber arches, but here’s how they typically work.  When the bride and groom make it almost to the end of the arch, the saber dudes (technical term) stop them and request a kiss.  Not ones to mess with tradition, our saber dudes asked us to kiss.

So we obliged.

But it wasn’t over just yet…see Mr. Jelly’s brother’s face in the picture below?  He’s got something up his sleeve…

I love how he’s actually licking his lips in anticipation.

Ah yes, the traditional “welcome to the military” swat to the bride’s backside.  Wouldn’t be a military saber arch without it.

We don’t have any shots of the actual swat in action, but I think our expressions say it all.

Followed by our parents, without whom the wedding would not have been possible.
