Welcome! I'm a newlywed who started this blog to document the planning of our September 2010 wedding, and ended up addicted to blogging! Follow our journey through life as we try to find the way to our "perfect" marriage. Happy reading!

So after Mr. Milk's super sweet surprise, it was time to head onto the dance floor for our first dance as husband and wife. We had taken one very last-minute dance class, as our chosen song (Michael Buble's Everything) was a little tricky to dance to. But the dance class was a waste of time :) On the actual day we decided to just wing it and enjoy the moment :)
Our lighting guy did a great job that night! So glad we added him in to the budget last minute.
Hey ladies! Sorry to be MIA on you all, but for the last few weeks Mr. Milk and I have been house-hunting, and it is taking away far too much time from everything else. Most time I now spend on the computer is looking at houses. It is an exciting and frustrating process all at once! I'm sure many of you who have already gone through this can relate. I will hopefully be back to reading and commenting on your blogs very soon!
But I am ripping myself away from the real estate websites to tell you about my hubby's surprise at our wedding! I thought I knew everything that was to take place at the wedding, but clearly I was mistaken!
While I'm sitting there trying to eat my dinner, I see these two walking towards me
Mr. Milk, who was sitting next to me, takes off his jacket, grabs his violin, and goes around the table to join our best man and their friend. Now, Mr. Milk hasn't touched the violin in about 10 years!
At which point I realize that my hubs is serenading me, and the tears come. Again.
He melts my heart
They had the whole room captivated!
They then moved on to stroll through the guests, playing different songs. They must have been up there for 15 mins or so.
These three lovelies used to do this exact same thing back in their late teens! They were called the strolling musicians and played at a hotel to earn extra cash.
One of my faves! People wouldn't leave them alone! They kept throwing out requests! Many people at our wedding have said that this was the highlight of the evening.
Once we finished our meal, Mr. Milk and I went around and said hi to all of our guests. We took our champagne flutes and went round all the tables, clinking our glasses and thanking them for coming. There are a ton of pictures so I'll only show you a few so you can get the idea.
Good friends! The two on the left are getting married in May!
Our best man and his gf.
More good friends!
