I have SO many thoughts and memories that I want to share, and I’m completely overwhelmed…
I figured that I have to start somewhere, so it might as well be here. 😉
First off, the wedding was amazing. I couldn’t have asked for anything better. So many people have commented to one or both of us about how much fun they had, or how lovely the ceremony was, or both…and each time I hear it, it makes me smile.
Knowing myself, I seriously limited my DIY projects so as not to drive myself utterly insane. One of my DIY projects was the table cards.
Rand and I decided to name our tables after famous pop culture couples. We located photos, and I glued the photos to some pretty rose-colored paper I found at JoAnn’s. I wrote the names and a corresponding table number on the back.
We tried very hard to make sure that at least one person at each table would “get” and appreciate the reference. For example, we were sure that Jen and Mark’s table was George Michael and Maeby from Arrested Development.
To make things a little more interesting, we made it into a contest! Rand and I bought a gift card from FYE and had some contest forms printed up. Our friend Thomas, the evening’s official emcee/DJ, collected the entries. I’m not sure who the winner was, but here is the complete list of answers:
Chandler and Monica (Friends, TV)
Buttercup and Westley (The Princess Bride, movie)
Diane and Lloyd (Say Anything, movie)
Pam and Jim (The Office, TV)
Leia and Han (Star Wars, movie)
Zoe and Wash (Firefly/Serenity, TV/movie)
C.J. and Danny (The West Wing, TV)
Desmond and Penny (Lost, TV)
Aragorn and Arwen (The Lord of the Rings, book/movie)
Fry and Leela (Futurama, TV)
Beatrice and Benedick (Much Ado About Nothing, play/movie)
Wayne and Cassandra (Wayne’s World, movie)
George Michael and Maeby (Arrested Development, TV)
Sydney and Vaughn (Alias, TV)
Turk and Carla (Scrubs, TV)
Jesse and Tulip (Preacher, comic book)

Lola and Manni (Run Lola Run, movie)
David and Keith (Six Feet Under, TV)
Peter and Mary Jane (Spider Man, comic book)
Harry and Sally (When Harry Met Sally, movie)
Ron and Hermione (Harry Potter series, book/movie)
Lady and the Tramp (uh…Lady and the Tramp. movie)
Rand and I sat at our own “sweetheart” table, and decided to name our table after perhaps the most enduring couple on television…Homer and Marge Simpson! 😉
As soon as I find out who won, I’ll post an update!
