My Wedding & Honeymoon: Day 6-10 (Part 16)

October 19, 2011

Everyone knows that the best part of a wedding (well, in most cases) is the cake.  And ours definitely did not disappoint!  Faena Hotel + Universe baked us the most spectacular cake ever: a double layered dulce de leche and milk chocolate torta with white chocolate icing on the sides.

I begged Lucas to eschew the tradition of shoving the first bite of cake into each others faces and thankfully he obliged.  While we were feeding each other, my friend, Apphia, whom had flown all the way from China, sang “Unforgettable”  to us on a whim.  It was absolutely breathtaking!

Once she was finished, the band began to play again.  They played a mix of popular jazz and bossa nova songs.

Of course, everyone loved the slow music, but the party did not officially begin until the dance music started.  The star of the show was definitely Lucas’ Dad.  I guess I know where my husband got his smooth moves from?

I must have been inspired by his Dad in the following photo?

I refused to have any cheesy songs played during the reception, such as “YMCA,” however I did not protest when the conga line was started to a Black Eyed Peas song.

I then paused for a quick champagne break, as I knew I would need some liquid courage for what was coming up next, while Lucas took my Mom for a spin on the dance floor.

What is your favorite photo?

    I was so happy to see these post because I love the photos of Apphia and Nathan singing to you — one of my favorite parts of the wedding. However…the post also makes me sad because reception time can only mean one thing…the wedding posts are coming to an end!

    Andi – this has been a truly epic saga to read about. I’m impressed by all the pics, of course. Looks like you got a good hard squeeze in on the Conga shot haha. It looks like there was much joy and jubilation on all fronts here, and that makes me happy.

    Keep it up 🙂
