Picture Perfect: The Grandest of Entrances

The sun was going down and the guests were getting pumped up – it was reception time! We spent an obscene amount of time trying to decide what song to enter into the reception to, another thing we probably didn’t need to spend so much time or energy on. Initially, Cam and I were both deadset on Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes indie anthem “home,” but a lot of our bridal party had never heard the song. We ultimately used that for our recessional, and it worked out perfectly.

One day I was listening to Pandora at work and Michael Franti & Spearhead’s “Say Hey (I Love you)” came on. I found myself dancing in my chair and then I realized – everyone knows this song, it’s catchy, it’s upbeat, it’s perfect! So that’s what we went with!

Michael Franti and Spearhead – Say Hey (I Love You)

Sometime between cocktail hour and our entrances, Cam’s Uncle who works as a Karaoke host and DJ in San Francisco decided that he wanted to do the bridal party introductions. Hilarity ensued.

First up was MIL and FIL Camera:

Followed by my parents.

*Sidenote: Not only did Mama Camera have a rough summer because of her breast cancer surgery and treatments, but the week before our wedding she sprained her knee. Or at least at that time we thought she sprained her knee, she ended up being having MRI of her knee which showed a torn meniscus. I felt so awful for her, so I told her change into her sneaks after the photos were done, but she insisted on making her entrance in her heels.
 
Our bridal party started with BM Cupcake and GM VTech, Cam’s sister and my brother, respectively:

Followed closely by BM Boys (Cam’s other sister) and Doctor GM:

Next up was BM FUN. and GM Sailor. Fun fact: They got married about a month later!

And then BM Mom and GM Swag (see how he got his name?)

And then BM Yer Welcome gangnam styled with GM Teach – they got married about 2 months before we did.

Then came BM Hamster with GM Art. These two didn’t know each other before our wedding weekend, but you would never have guessed it by how much fun they had!

BM Work It and GM App sprinklered their way to the tent:

And last but not least, MOH JJ with Best Man Bro doing some sort of strange dance move.

It was perfect timing because “Say Hey” had about 10 seconds left, in which the bridal party danced around in the tent, while the DJ was getting ready to change the song for our first introduction as Mr. and Mrs. Cam was deadset on this being our entrance song, and I quickly jumped on board. Oh, did you want to know what he picked?
 
Hall and Oates – You Make My Dreams Come True, of course.

Do you want to go do karate in the garage? YUP. Did we just become best friends? YUP.

So much room to do activities!

This one was a gratuitous cupcake shot.
