I posted a pair of wedding bands last month. They got put to good use this Saturday when my friends Shawn and Laurrell got married!
The ceremony was held in a beautiful spot in Central Park.
Shawn adores hot pink and butterflies, as you can see from this photo of the fans that were given out.
Shawn doesn’t just adore hot pink. She REALLY, REALLY adores hot pink. She had pink in her bouquet …
… the bridal party wore pink …
… and Shawn’s high/low (aka “mullet”) dress showed off her hot pink shoes.
As for the butterflies, Shawn wore a white butterfly fascinator in her hair …
… and butterflies were released during the ceremony. Before that, the officiant addressed the couple. She compared Laurrell to a protective oak tree. Guess what she compared Shawn to? (Pssst … it was a butterfly.)
At the reception, the tabletop decorations continued the hot pink/butterfly theme.
There were pink butterfly cupcakes for dessert.
I am disappointed that I forgot to have MrB wear a pink tie. That’s what happens when I sleep through my alarm and only have 30 minutes to get dressed. I miss important details.
In case you’re wondering what Laurrell thought of all the pink — as some of the wedding guests were — he loved it!
And I loved their little dance routine. As the officiant indicated, Laurrell is usually the strong silent type, while Shawn is bubbly and gregarious. But look at Laurrell get down!
Congratulations to Shawn and Laurrell! I hope your marriage is as full of joy (and hot pink and butterflies) as your wedding was.
