After Decorating, During Reception
It was a lovely evening. When it began, I was still
putting together the bridesmaids bouquets, 
but everything turned out lovely. I was so 
thrilled to have all the help I was given. 
So many put so many long hours into this to make 
it just as I'd always dreamed. 

While I was standing in the line, I found a needle still 
hanging from a thread on my jacket. I had been up to 
2 am finishing it the night before! 

The Cake 
Made by Loralyn Hansen
Flowers by Marsha Steed <mom>
The photographer got them all posed for the traditional picture and then when they went to cut the cake, and the photographer said... "Ok, now cut it".  Brandon looked at Crystal and she said, "We can't!  It is rice crispy treats!"  They ended up cutting another layer. 

A Victorian tradition we enjoyed, was each groomsman and each bridesmaid pulled a charm out of the cake, each signifying their future.  IE: Wedding bells - Next to et married. Cameo - Beauty; and so forth. 

Richard said some words, as did Dan Dever.  Derek gave a very nice toast, and Jen Grover spoke a little bit about her experiences with Crystal.  Jen Sang two songs.

When it was time to toss the bouquet and garter, I asked Crystal if she had it on, and she didn't.  We had to dash to the dressing room to remedy that. 

Derek (her brother) Caught the garter and Janeal ( her sister) caught the bouquet!  I told everything their colors had better be lavendar and silver!
