#mcwed part 5

After we ate, we did our rounds talking to everyone and then it was time for cake! I didn’t even think about how awkwardly the cake table was placed, that’s where they had it on the layout…but it was kind of off in the back corner.

Cake cutting is serious business.

I fed Keith a small piece of cake and he tried to feed me this giant bite, hence my face. And his face. Just look at that mischievous grin.

The cake was awesome, by the way. Lemony and delicious and I wish I had a piece right now.

After that, it was time to dance. Keith and I danced to Adele – One and Only which is also the soundtrack to our wedding video trailer.


Keith actually picked the song. What a sweetie. I had picked something else, but he said it was too depressing. Haha.

Then Keith and his mom danced to Pearl Jam – Future Days

Then my stepdad and I danced to Bellstop – Serenity

It took me a really long time to decide on a song…but then I had a stroke of genius to use a Bellstop song. Bellstop is composed of my cousin, Runar and his partner. Runar is my cousin on my dad’s side and lives in Iceland.  I thought it was a wonderful and subtle way to give a nod to my dad. There were lots of tears during this dance for sure.

I had requested a photo of the entire wedding…so after our dances…they shut off the music to get everyone out on the floor for a photo.

Love it. Most of my nearest and dearest. And then our DJ seamlessly went into “We are Family” and the partying began.
