A Party To Remember: Our Entrance and Cake Cutting

I was hoping to be able to show you guys a video of our entrance, but that requires Mr. Milk's help, and unfortunately the poor guy is so busy with work he hasn't even had the chance to do any of the editing he wanted to for the wedding footage. So as soon as he has the time, I will come back with some video footage. In the meantime, here are some of the pics of our entrance and cake cutting. 

So here we are :) Our entrance song was a remix of the Black Eyed Peas song I Gotta Feeling.

I love that the ballroom was pitch black other than that one spotlight on us

Cutting...

Still cutting...

Failed at cutting and so needed the help of the hotel experts! To our defense, the knife was crap :)

Our cake was nothing wow. In face, the 2 bottom layers are fake. Since our wedding favor was so rich, and we had a dessert buffet that was out of this world, we decided that the cake itself was more for the tradition and pics than anything else. The top tier was a chocolate/biscuit cake, which we fed each other and then had the waiters take away. A lot of people later asked about why the cake hadn't been served :) 

A little worried that I would get cake in the face. I didn't thankfully!

Toasting our guests

Drinking our champagne...

Downing our champagne :) After taking a sip and uncrossing our arms, Mr. Milk whispered to me "down it!" So I did :)

I love this picture! Sitting down after the cake cutting and getting ready for the dinner and party to start!

That's too funny about the guests asking about the cake! I love your head table. Such pretty flowers and decorations!

I love those flowers on top of the cake! And that's too funny that you downed your champagne with the spotlight on you :)

When I go to a wedding, I would rather there be a dessert buffet than just cake. Then I can choose what I want.

Your cake looked really pretty! I'm with Aubrey - the buffet sounds awesome and much more exciting than just cake. Your reception space looked really nice. Looking forward to the detail shots!

The buffet sounded like a great idea and what biscuit and chocolate cake must have been good!

Amy said...

I TOTALLY failed at cake cutting too--we also had to have someone from our venue help us! Oh well, you win some, you lose some.

Great post. :)

Haha - I love the story about your cake. Ours was part of our package at our venue so we made sure it was the best one we could get! LOL
