Twisted Together: Sneaking Out

The day of our wedding was particularly warm.  As such, it required that we take little breaks from the busy dance floor to cool down outside.   Our photographer caught some great candid shots of the boys and girls on the steps.

While our guests were dancing Mr P and I snuck away with our photographer for some more portraits.  Our departure however, wasn’t missed by my uncle.  He snapped these photos of us through the window because he was concerned about what we were up to.

What were we up to?  We were curious about the punk show going on across the street at a “private” club.  Death Punch, a LA based punk band was playing and the lead singer was gracious enough to pose for some photos with us.  I am sure to my family Mr P and I disappearing around the corner with the mohawked front man was a little alarming.  For us it was loads of fun.

We all looked tough…

… but couldn’t help but laugh.  I decided to try for a kiss on the cheek…

…as does Mr P.  I think we have reached the edge of this man’s comfort zone!  Our photographer had also scoped out a private club in the back of a liquor store (I cannot make this stuff up people) that had a ton of vintage touches. We had our own mini vintage themed photo shoot.

The complete vintage kitchen was to die for.  Mr P decided to cool himself with an open freezer and I finished up some dishes.

This little excursion was completely unexpected and pretty darn cool.  It was really nice to step away from the reception for a little while and be (kinda) by ourselves.

Twisted Together: A Rigged Bouquet Toss

We had no plans to do a bouquet or garter toss.  At 32 yrs old I was the last of my friends to get married.  There was only a small handful of un-wed women at our wedding and I figured it was just easier to skip this tradition.

*All photos by Amore Studios unless otherwise noted

My family had other ideas.  Meet my cousin M and his girlfriend A.  Aren’t they absolutely adorable?  Soon after dinner was served my cousin M approached me to inquire when the bouquet toss would be.  He wanted to make sure that his girlfriend caught the bouquet.  I told him that we weren’t doing a toss but this information didn’t compute.  Not doing a toss? Unbelievable.

Previous 2 images from USnaps Photo Booth

M wasn’t the only one inquiring. His step dad (pictured above) also pulled me aside to ask the same question, as did his mom.  I started to get the hint.  I let him know I would rig a bouquet toss just for him and A.  I was off to find a bridesmaid willing to part with her bouquet and to tell all the single women (there weren’t many) that we were doing a toss but to let the red-head catch the bouquet.

Ready, aim, fire!

I love how obvious the other girls are about not catching the bouquet.

A snagged the bouquet, YAY!

Mission accomplished!

My cousin was very grateful.  As far as I know he hasn’t popped the question yet.  Come on cuz, what’s the hold up?

Did you “rig” your bouquet toss?

Twisted Together: Cake of the Cup Kind

Cuppy Cakes!  I’ve heard stories about kids (and adults) stealing cupcakes off of the table before the bride and groom have a chance to “cut the cake.”  Thankfully our guests were quite restrained. I’m not sure how they managed to do it, look at that cupcake goodness.

Rhienn at Look Cupcake! did a fabulous (and yummy) job.

*All photos by Amore Studios unless otherwise noted.

Our signage detailed the four different flavors of cupcake:

  • La Nina De Chocolate Diablo: Mexican spiced chocolate cake with Kahlua buttercream frosting. Sprinkled with our special Diablo Dust
  • A Formal Affair: Classic yellow cake with a bittersweet chocolate ganache filling topped with a swirl of full tilt chocolate truffle
  • Summer in your Hand: Fresh lemon cake with strawberry cheesecake filling. The perfect complement- strawberry swiss meringue buttercream frosting.
  • Bollywood: Vanilla chai spice cake with cinnamon cheesecake filling. Finished with a healthy dollop of fresh ginger buttercream frosting.

I am getting hungry just looking at the photos!  Mr P and I had a discussion about smooshing cake in each others faces.  I was definitely against the idea.  Mr P played nice and fed me a bite sized cupcake.  YUM!

Mr Pretzel, let me help you get that icing off your lips!

Our guests made a bee line for the cupcake table and really can you blame them?

Sadly the cupcakes that we fed each other are the only ones that Mr P and I got that night.  We were too busy dancing and mingling with guests.  Our 1st anniversary is less than a month away

. My fingers are crossed that Look Cupcake! will be able to whip up a small batch for us.

Twisted Together: Rock On

We wanted a band… a band who would rock and keep the party going, not necessarily a “wedding band”.  I lamented about it in this post. I wanted to rock out but was conflicted with my desire for some old school hip hop.  Is there a band out there that is both rock and old school hip hop? Probably not, so we focused on a band who would rock.

*All photos from Amore Studios unless otherwise noted.

I think we were successful!  We stayed clear of “wedding bands” and started searching Gig Masters.  We had a short list of 3 bands we wanted to see in person.  On our first excursion out we stumbled upon our band by mistake.  The band that we thought we were going to see canceled and the bar booked The About Face band instead. We weren’t aware of the switch-a-roo and at the band’s first intermission we chatted with the lead singer only to find they weren’t who we thought they were. Whoops!  But we liked them, we liked them a lot. We went to see two more bands but they didn’t compare to the first band.

Image courtesy of wedding guest, Mrs Cherry Pie {Persimmon Images}

What’s not to love? This four piece plays classic rock and the lead singer Arny sounds just like Steve Perry from Journey.

As soon as they started playing everyone was on the floor dancing.  My Uncle J was very influential in my love of classic rock growing up.  He was in heaven rocking out all night.  We couldn’t have chosen a better band.

When I started to think about this post I kept thinking about the playlist for the night.  Mr P and I chose the songs and created the iPod intermissions.  I emailed Arny  hoping that he still had our playlist 10 months later.  Despite having a crashed computer and losing most of his playlists just months earlier Arny came through and delivered.  That my friends is customer service!

The dancing wasn’t limited to the dance floor.  A lot of our guests were enjoying the music outside too. Mr P sings to me as we dance outside our venue.

Our band rocked and Mr P and I danced our butts off.  So much so that I managed to rip the strap to my dress with one of many fist pumps that night, but it all totally worth it.

Going for a non-wedding band really paid off for us.  The band’s rate was totally reasonable and they were a dream to work with.  At the end of the night my Uncle J said to his daughter “When you get married, you’re having a band like this”.

Coming up next: Cake time!

Twisted Together: Dance with Me

I mentioned how much Mr P and I enjoyed taking dance lessons and choreographing our first dance.  After a couple of weeks of lessons I thought that Papa Pretzel might also enjoy dance lessons.

* All image courtesy of wedding guest, Mrs Cherry Pie {Persimmon Images} unless otherwise noted.

Papa Pretzel isn’t much of a dancer but is always down for a challenge. One evening when Papa Pretzel and I were catching I floated an idea. “Would you consider taking dance lessons Dad?” I asked.

“Gosh darn it Pretzel you certainly know how to ruin a surprise.  I had already decided to take lessons and was going to surprise you” he replied.  Whoops!

Photo by Amore Studios

My Dad took lessons in Phoenix and his instructor collaborated with my instructor via email.  We selected James Taylor’s “You’ve got a Friend” and our instructors taught us a couple basic steps that we could string together.  We didn’t get to practice with each other until a couple days before the wedding and admittedly my Dad was much better than I was.  He would tell me which step he wanted to do next and sometimes I couldn’t remember which one that was. While we were dancing I let him know I need lots of advance notice!

Papa Pretzel wears two hearing aids.  Unfortunately they had been acting up around the time of our wedding and he only had one with him.  While we were dancing I could tell that he was having trouble hearing the music (as Mr P had earlier) so I began singing the words to him so he could get the beat. We sang the song together and I am still struck by how the lyrics to this song resonate so perfectly with the relationship that I have with Papa Pretzel.

When you’re down and troubled and you need a helping hand
and nothing, whoa, nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me and soon I will be there

You just call out my name, and you know where ever I am
I’ll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call and I’ll be there, yeah, yeah,
you’ve got a friend.

If the sky above you should turn dark and full of clouds
and that old north wind should begin to blow,
keep your head together and call my name out loud.
Soon I will be knocking upon your door.
You just call out my name, and you know where ever I am
I’ll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call and I’ll be there.

Hey, ain’t it good to know that you’ve got a friend? People can be so cold.
They’ll hurt you and desert you. Well, they’ll take your soul if you let them,
oh yeah, but don’t you let them.

You just call out my name, and you know where ever I am
I’ll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call, Lord, I’ll be there, yeah, yeah,
you’ve got a friend. You’ve got a friend.
Ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend. Ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend.
Oh, yeah, yeah, you’ve got a friend.

I’m so happy Papa Pretzel took dance lessons, he and I had so much fun dancing and Papa P ended up really enjoying his lessons.

MIL Pretzel chose a “You Decorated My Life” by Kenny Roger for the mother son dance.

All my life was a paper once plain, pure and white
Till you moved with your pen changin’ moods now and then
Till the balance was right
Then you added some music, ev’ry note was in place
And anybody could see all the changes in me by the look on my face

And you decorated my life, created a world where dreams area apart
And you decorated my life by paintin’ your love all over my heart
You decorated my life

Photo by Amore Studios

Like a rhyme with no reason in an unfinished song
There was no harmony life meant nothin’ to me, until you cam along
And you brought out the colors, what a gentle surprise
Now I’m able to see all the things life can be shinin’ soft in your eyes

Photo by Amore Studios

And you decorated my life, created a world where dreams are a part
And you decorated my life by paintin’ your love all over my heart
You decorated my life

Twisted Together: Photo Booth All-Stars

When I sat down with Papa Pretzel to review the budget for our wedding there was one line item that he was curious about.  He was confused about the photo booth entry.  We talked a little bit about it and why Mr P and I wanted to have a photo booth.  He didn’t understand completely but was ok with it.  After the wedding he told me he thought the photo booth was one of the best ideas that we had and that it was totally worth the money.

We went with a digital only photo booth by USnaps.com.  All photos below are courtesy of USnaps unless otherwise noted. *Warning, photo heavy post*

Photo by Amore Studios

I wanted a bright backdrop and the options that the photo booth company had were blah, so I made the backdrop with fabric from IKEA.

Remember our mustaches?  They were quite the hit with young and old.

I also ordered conversation blackboards from Hello Lucky. We found some fun hats around the house and other props.

Photo by Amore Studios

The process was easy.  Stand in front of the backdrop and click the shutter release.  Your photo displays on the back side of the unit until the next photo is taken. USnaps had cards printed with our website and password so people could download their photos the next day.

I spy a Cherry Pie!

We made easy to follow chalkboard instructions.  Best Man M demonstrates.

Very nice use of the clicker Best Man M, very nice.  Extra points for you.

My cousins rocked the photo booth. No really, out of the 500 photos our guests took these guys (plus my niece and nephew) are in the largest percentage of photos.

Going through all the photos to pick some for this post was extremely difficult.  Seriously, my cousins weren’t the only photo booth all-stars.  I’m gonna need your help, hive.  Help me pick the Pretzel Photo Booth All-star (Poll at the end of the post).  In order to help me show the range of photos we got I put them into categories.

Sweet – Blowing kisses and loving sentiment. Our family and friends had some really sweet photos.

Self-Portraits– From Grandpa to Cherry Pie’s twist on a self-portrait these are my favorite portraits.

* Ok Ladies, this is our friend P. He’s smart, funny, and an all-around great guy, but super shy.  If you know a great single girl in the Seattle area send me a message. Poor P was disappointed that there weren’t more single women at our wedding.  Sorry P all my peeps are married!

Up close and personal– for whatever reason some of our guests decided to get REALLY close to the camera.

Hilarious– Our friends and family  are hilarious. I’m not as funny, so I’ll let the photos do all the talking.


Ok hive!  Which one of our hilarious friends “Rocked the Photo Booth” best?

A Mr & Mrs Cherry Pie *Sigh

B People aren’t wearing enough hats

C Grandpa’s self-portrait

Twisted Together: Nom, Nom, Nom

After our Dad’s spoke it was time for food!  City Catering really outdid themselves at our reception. We opted for what I like to call an “Eat and Mingle” buffet.  The food was light, fresh and summary.  Most importantly it could all be eaten with a fork.

Image courtesy of wedding guest, Mrs Cherry Pie {Persimmon Images}

“A fork?” you ask.

Yes a fork.  You might remember back to my Gocco the fork idea. Well it was a pretty darn good idea and I Gocco’ed 200+ forks for our guests.  Taking the hive’s suggestions we had four versions (in four colors) that read: “Nom, Nom, Nom” “Matt ♥ Amy”  “Amy ♥ Matt” and “Love on Tap”

Enough about the forks! Let’s eat!  City Catering prepared the following dishes:

Black Bean, Jicama & Corn Salad (top) Quinoa Salad (bottom)

Grilled salmon with avocado relish (top)  Chicken Souvlaki (bottom)

Hanger steak platter with fresh potato rolls

Heirloom Tomato Salad

My mouth is watering just thinking about the food.  I wasn’t a bashful bride and fixed myself a heaping plate.  It’s good that I did, I never did make it back to the buffet for seconds.

Our “Mix and Mingle” seating meant that people ate pretty much everywhere. It also meant that it was easy to move myself around and catch up with friends while I ate.  Genius!

Mr P roved around the room while he ate also.

My BIL and SIL caught a quiet moment outside with their dinners.

The kids had sodas…

…and the adults had beer (ummm… beer) life was good and the bellies were getting filled.

Twisted Together: The Dads Speak

After our first dance our DOC immediately handed Mr P and I pints of beer so we could settle in for speeches from the dads.  Best DOC ever!  *All photos by Amore Studios unless otherwise noted.

The dads were all that was keeping us from yummy food so we were appreciative that their speeches were heartfelt and brief.

FIL Pretzel had a lot of practice.  Three  out of four of his children got married in the 2009/2010 year and Mr P and I were the last.  The advice he shared with us was solid and tear inducing.

Papa Pretzel is my rock and my best friend.  I was nervous that his speech would have me a blubbering mess.  After some words of congratulations and welcoming Mr Pretzel to the family my dad did something so thoughtful.  He read a poem from his baby sister.  My Aunt M couldn’t make it out to Seattle for the wedding (she did party her butt off with us last November at our hometown reception though) and she sent my dad with a poem.

2 hearts now joined as one
my wish for you is simple
may your lives be filled with peace, happiness and fun

always respect each others’ feelings and agree to disagree
always cherish your time together but keep you own identity
always remember why you fell in love

there will be good times and bad
always be honest with each other
and never go to bed mad

just a simple bit of loving advicegiven to you from me
now these families gathered here can happily add
Mr. and Mrs. Pretzel to their family tree

God bless you both and
congratulations!

Papa Pretzel’s speech might not have been long, but it was really special to have my Aunt’s words with us.

Twisted Together: Take me for a twirl

Mr Pretzel and I were introduced at the reception over the last few refrains of Kodachrome by Simon and Garfunkel.  An appropriate choice for our colorful wedding.  Our DOC ensured the dance floor was clear and that we had a clear path to it so we could immediately start our first dance as husband and wife.

*All images by Amore Studios unless otherwise noted.

Our guests were in for a surprise. For months leading up to the wedding Mr P and I spent 2 evenings a week in dance lessons with Andrea at American Ballroom Dance in Bothell WA.  Andrea choreographed a routine for us to L-O-V-E by Michael Buble.  These lessons were special time for Matt and I.  We worked hard and we worked together.  Mr P was a bit more of a natural than I was but we polished the dance.  We promised our instructor no beers before our first dance, hence why we did the dance immediately after entering the reception. Plus it was a fun way to kick off the party . Play the video to listen along.

We took our places as the music started.

Our dance of choice was a foxtrot.

Mr Pretzel helps me out by counting under his breath.

We spun, twirled, and fox troted around our dance floor.

Previous two images courtesy of wedding guest, Mrs Cherry Pie {Persimmon Images}

The ending, the big finale was a move called a chainsaw.  I was a little nervous the first time Andrea showed us this move, but by the time the wedding came around we were pros.

Image courtesy of wedding guest, Mrs Cherry Pie {Persimmon Images}

Mr P walked behind me and took my outstretched hand. Crossing my arms in front of me he started to tilt me to the side…

… and then pointed me face to the ground…

… untwisting my arms I spun to face up to the ceiling…

Image courtesy of wedding guest, Mrs Cherry Pie {Persimmon Images}

…with a leg popped out all cute.

Then Mr Pretzel lifted me back up to standing position.  We took a bow and then celebrated with a kiss.

Image courtesy of wedding guest, Mrs Cherry Pie {Persimmon Images}

Swiftly as we exited the dance floor our fabulous DOC handed us each a beer.  Perfection!

Amazing, right?  Our friends and family cheered, they were certainly impressed.  However, Mr P and I were a little bit heartbroken.  What you can’t see in the beautiful photos is the point, only 2 verses into the song, where our world began to unravel.  Our song was being played via iPod over the bands sound system and the volume was not loud enough.  The acoustics in the room at times made it impossible to hear the music.  All of a sudden Mr P couldn’t hear the music and then he lost his spot.  He couldn’t remember the steps and couldn’t figure out where we were in the routine.  I also lost the music but was able to get caught up. I tried to lead him through the rest of the song stringing together steps from the routine.  We winged it and got through. We got to the big finale and nailed it.

In the end, nobody knew that we had screwed up but us.  My instant reaction was to want a do-over, that’s the competitive side of me.  Mr P felt horrible, like he had let me down.  In the images of us hugging after the dance Mr P was telling me over and over “I am so sorry”  and I am reassuring him that it is ok.   It wasn’t a matter of knowing the dance or having enough practice, it came down to being able to hear the music and it was nobody’s fault.  Over time we came to accept our first dance for what it was, absolutely amazing, magical, flawed and real.  It wasn’t exactly as we had practiced but it was entirely us.  We have a video of the dance. I watched it a month after the wedding and couldn’t get through it.  I put it on a shelf and maybe someday I can watch it without reliving the panic that we both felt when we lost the music.  We do have a cell phone video of us doing a dry run at our venue.  This is the dance in its entirety.  We were just practicing to map out the dance space needed so it isn’t polished or perfect. We didn’t do a full chainsaw at the end but it gives you an idea.

I wouldn’t trade the hours of practice in for anything.  Sure the dance wasn’t perfect but  the months of preparation were. We carved out time every week just for us.  If one of us was in a grouchy mood from work by the time we left dance lessons we were happy.  We both feel much more comfortable on the dance floor when a slow song comes on.  All of this is why I don’t regret dance lessons and why I would suggest them to anyone.  A month after the wedding Mr P and I competed at the Seattle Star Ball in the beginner category and earned three first places (full disclosure they give away first places like candy, but we had fun).

Did anything go wrong in your first dance? How did you recover?

Twisted Together: Georgetown Walk for Two

After formal photos with our family and wedding party we piled into the party bus again and made our way to Georgetown.  We pulled up to our venue and our family and wedding party joined the cocktail hour already in progress while Mr P and I took a stroll through the neighborhood.

*All images by Amore Studios

Part of the original Rainier Brewery reflected in a storefront window.

Mr P borrows a bike in front of Georgetown Records.

We took a break in a coffee shop, it felt good to put my feet up for a minute.

I never missed an opportunity to kiss my new husband!

Love everything about this doorway, especially the graffiti “Love” on the door.

I smiled for the camera before ducking into a bar… oh look, they serve Rainier Beer- Yay!  This Pretzel had to pee and the bar looked like an oasis.   Can I just spend a second on how much easier and hassle free it is to use the ladies room in a short dress?  Easy-peasy, done!

While I was using the ladies room, Mr P and our photographer wandered into a liquor store where Mr Pretzel took an elephant for a ride (sorry Mrs Elephant!).  I had no idea until we got our proofs back and I have to say this is one of my favorite photos.

Time to join our friends and family at the reception!
