If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends

I think it’s safe to say that the reception was one big dance party, and the best one I’ve ever been to. All my favorite music, played by my favorite band, with ALL of my favorite people on the dance floor? Amazing.

These are the highlights from the wedding reception, which ended in me on the stage singing Spice Girls with some of my bridesmaids on stage with the band.

Started out with my mom and brother hittin’ the floor with the classic Kroeger moves (raise the roof, push it down, bring it back)…

Meghan and David, keeping it classy …

See, the Kroeger-clan likes to raise the roof…

Not a wedding has gone by without me and my big mouth making it into a photo …

I love this photo, not because we had so many alumni in it, but because we are MISSING so many more who were chasing down the bartenders serving our “specialty cocktail” (the Tim’s Wall) …

And, my FAVORITE photo from the wedding: Grandpa stealing food from Grandma’s plate while she is schooling me on something. I’ve never seen a photo that captures them as best as this one  …

The Walk Down the Aisle

I really didn’t think walking down the aisle was going to be as emotional and wonderful as it was.  Being with my dad, and seeing everyone I love most in the world all together in one room, and Kyle at the end of the aisle smiling was definitely the most amazing experience.

Our moms …
