Survived!

Well, we all survived the wedding! There were a few funny things that happened (well, funny to us, and probably not the couple) but all went smoothly. Here are a few of my favorite photos I took at the temple that day...

The luncheon went well. While everyone there loved Jon and Donnarae, Troy and I wonder that just maybe they were second guessing the idea to let each of their parents speak! Hilarious for us all there, maybe not so for the happy couple.

Donnarae wanted crepes to be served at the reception. On New Year's Day, we spent 4-5 hours making 500 crepes, to be put into the freezer. Well, the picture below was taken during the reception. It was a scramble to pull the crepes (what ones would come off of the wax paper) and then roll them to be set in the reception room. (I have to say, I did not help in this matter - I was definitely happy I was the photographer and not the crepe roller) Can you tell they're all dressed for the occasion? It really was a crepe nightmare. If you asked ME if I would ever do crepes at a reception again, I would say only if they were purchased, not homemade. You may get a different answer if you asked someone else...anyways, they were good! There were TONS of toppings!

So, after a long day of being on our feet, we (as well as Jon and Drae) were ready for it to be over at 8:00. The second the clock hit 8, Troy started putting up chairs and tables, and I turned off the video, put away the sign in book, and started hauling gifts out. Troy overheard this comment: "When the Korth's say it's over at 8, they mean it!" I told Troy, we have no problem being an hour late for events, but when it's over, it's over! Cherice also overheard this comment in the restroom: "Those Korth's sure know how to clean up! I went and changed, and by the time I got back, everything was cleaned up!" My response is, it's sheer numbers. We've gotten everyone beat by our numbers. Take 16 adults who want to get home, it takes no time at all! We all got a good laugh out of the comments! We were all VERY happy this was our last wedding...unless Doug and Melissa decide to surprise us...

Jon and Donnarae are off to the Dominican Republic! I am sure they're having a fantastic time!

I say "no child of mine will serve crepes or have a chocolate fountain if I'm paying for it. I did enjoy the crepe sweat shop conversation that we had.
