Surely you remember Christy and Michael from their Calvin and Hobbes inspired engagement session around St Augustine, Florida! Needless to say, we were more than a little excited about their wedding day. :) The whole event was held at The Players Club in Sawgrass, Florida.
There were so many unique details about this wedding that it truly made it one of our favorites of 2010. Case in point :
The guys started the day playing Halo, and even let Nate join in for a bit. :)
Christy’s bridesmaids did a fabulous job on her hair and make-up!
Michael and his groomsmen, in lieu of boutonnieres, sported action figures on their lapels. :)
Christy, you are gooooorgeous!
Christy is an only child, and I loved how doting her sweet parents were. :)
Their guest book table, complete with an antique typewriter and the infamous red wagon used during our engagement session, was just darling.
Yeah… Mike wasn’t at all excited to get married. Not. One. Bit. ;)
Another favorite part of Christy and Mike’s day – Their ‘grown-up’ flower girl and ring bearer. :)
Even their vows were completely unique : After the traditional vows, the officiant asked Michael, “And, in the event of the Zombie Apocalypse, do you, Michael, promise to PROTECT, PROVIDE FOR and be PATIENT with Christy?” Then, when it was Christy’s turn after her traditional vows, he asked, “With his promise in mind, in the event of the Zombie Apocalypse, do you, Christy, promise to follow Michael’s instructions without question in order to keep you both alive?” AMAZING. :)
FAVORITE! You guys need this one HUGE. On canvas. Just sayin’. :)
Many of the centerpieces were antique pieces that were borrowed from members of Christy’s family. So cute! :)
You knew it was coming : The lightsaber entrance!
A cake after my own heart!
As if the wedding couldn’t get any better, our favorite group, The Buzzcats, were there to wow the crowd!
To all of my other brides : Why have we never seen milk and cookies served at a reception before?!
We may or may not have surprised Michael with a wedding gift… We found out during their engagement session that Christy and Mike are huge soccer fans. When Lorie and Jon were honeymooning at the World Cup, we had them pick up a vuvuzela for them, and Mike brought it out during the last dance. :)
The end. :)
