A Wedding in a Cave


This past weekend, I had the pleasure of attending my cousin Shannon's wedding (Hey girl, if you're reading this).  She and her now-husband had met many, many years ago, but lost contact when he went into the army, until he got honorably discharged for an injury and they reconnected.  Truly a love story!!

I actually loved their wedding because of how unique it was!  Tons of geeky references to movies, TV shows, video games etc.  and I think that this blended perfectly with their relationship.  Her dress had embroidered symbols on the skirt of Captain America's shield, Black Widow's insignia, Doctor Who, Star Trek to name a few.  Pretty unique, but also really cool.  Alex, the groom, comes from a Scottish family so all the guys in the wedding party (and my uncle because he wanted to join in on the fun) wore a full kilt get-up.

After the wedding, we proceeded to the reception which was in the Wabasha Street Caves.  A literal cave.  The food was served buffet style.  The music was very loud.  And by the end of the night, my feet hurt from dancing too much.  Overall, very successful night and what a beautiful wedding night.

The cake had Super Mario characters on top and was filled of raspberry cream. YUM.
Congrats Shannon + Alex! <3
