10 years ago today some of the strangest things happened...
A girl dressed up as Pocahontas came to the bridal suite and I thought she was going to sing...but she was there to do my makeup.
Drag queens dressed my dad in earrings and a feather boa while they waited for the stylists to finish with my bridal party.
The cocktail hour became cocktail 2 hours because the food was great, the jazz music was soothing, and everyone was enjoying it.
A woman dressed as a bride showed me around the ballroom so I could see the tables all set up.ScaryMom and "other" Halloween bride
My new husband twirled me around the dance floor like a pro and we nailed the dip at the end.
My dad gave the most heartwarming, sentimental, and tear jerking toast...to my mother, "his bride of 32 years".
I did my best Tina moves on stage with the band when they sang "Proud Mary".
My husband got up and danced with the band when they played "The Way You Do the Things You Do" - Jerry Garcia style.
Masks of all kinds appeared around 11:00pm and I think people actually got up to do the Monster Mash.
My 85 year old grandparents somehow agreed to come and enjoyed themselves. This was the last major trip of their lives.
I watched my dad do his signature dance move, "the mojo" one too many times.
Really drunk trick-or-treaters hopped on the wedding busses that took the guests back to the hotel.
A life-size cut-out of Austin Powers greeted people at the morning-after brunch, "Hello Baby!"
For me, it was the greatest weekend of my life. We spent too much money on it, but we have memories and stories to last a lifetime. People are still talking....
Happy Anniversary to us Mr. Scary! I love you.
This post is dedicated to the only other man in my life, my Dad. He always loved a good party and lived his too-short life to the fullest. I miss him every day.
