On Saturday, my family made the journey to Fort Dodge, Iowa for my cousin Rebecca’s wedding. When we received the invitation, we realized they were having a Dr. Seuss themed wedding. This seemed perfect for a couple that fell in love in the theater. We were very excited to see what they had in store.
We got lost on our way to the wedding (lots of twists and turns). We stopped at a laundry mat and a nice man there had us follow him to the theater (only in a small town). It was fitting they would choose to marry in a theater and The Hawkeye Community Theater was adorable. Lots of character!
After the wedding it was back to the hotel for dinner and dancing. The hall was decorated with lots of touches of Dr. Seuss.
The best part of any wedding reception is the dance, or watching the children dance! From the first note of “Love Shack”, my nieces, Ella (8) and Finley (5), and my cousin’s daughter, Addi (3), were non-stop dancing machines. Addi even brought her own tutu!
As the evening was winding down, my aunt Laura pulled a piece of meat out of my hair. It looked like half a piece of pepperoni. We aren’t sure where it came from-there was no pepperoni for dinner. My cousin Joe said he had noticed it earlier, but thought it was some kind of fancy braid-men!
There really is nothing better than spending time with family and celebrating the union of two amazing people. Congratulations Rebecca and Mikey!!
