Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Douglas Brown!

Doug and I were introduced and we entered into the ballroom.DSC_0309DSC_0311

Doug led me around the dance floor as The Mixed Nuts played Fly me to the Moon by Frank Sinatra. Lizzie_DougWED_0789_COLOR_large

We had been practicing the Fox Trot for months and had taken private lessons to make the first dance a little different. We had a great time practicing and fox trotting at the wedding.

Then it was time for the Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dance. Doug and I chose They All Asked For You by the Meters. Again, we wanted something a little untraditional.

Dad and I had practiced the week before and he had all his moves lined up.


Dad pulled out the shopping cart, sprinkler and lawnmower for our dance. He is a wild man. As we were dancing he said, “Mom said I could do any moves I wanted because not many people would be watching, but as I look around everyone is watching….” I laughed and agreed no one would be looking if we had done a traditional dance. Who would miss this show!

After the two “formal” dances, doug and I stayed on the dance floor to get the party started.

Doug and I did not leave the dance floor for a few songs. After a bit, we decided to make some rounds and say hello to people. I also remember my bustle coming out from all the dancing. Ashley was all over me and took care of everything.

The only scheduled event left for the evening was the cake cutting so we knew we had time to visit and dance the night away, or so we thought. There was one scheduled event we had no idea about…I will tell you about it next week!

Love and Hugs, Lizzie
