Goofin' Off With Another Wedding

As I mentioned in my last post, last weekend we had another family wedding. I have five nieces and nephews getting married this summer. It's been a lot of fun. But this particular wedding had a first for us. I'll get to after the updates to my projects.

I managed to finish the all of the sub-units for the second set of blocks and have begun the assembly of the the blocks.

Beginning of Block Assembly

Last Sub-Units Assembled for Quilt - Woo Hoo!

And now for my to my cross stitch project...Mickey and Pirate Friends. You can see the top of Goofy's second eye beginning to appear in this one. Every time I work on this I can hear Goofy in my mind saying, "I'm watching you."

Now back to the wedding we went to last weekend. Last weekend was a first for the Goofin' Off family. My nephew and his wife asked Mr. Goofin' Off to perform the marriage. Mr. Goofin' Off was very honored and was happy to do it for them. However, Mr. Goofin' Off had never performed a marriage before, so he had to go about getting ordained in order to perform the marriage. Mr. Goofin' Off is pretty resourceful, so he had no problems there.

Mr. Goofin' Off With the Happy Couple During Rehearsal

A few weeks before the wedding, we had the happy couple over for some sweets and to go over what they wanted in a ceremony. The groom has been a huge Toy Story fan since he was knee high to a grasshopper (yes, I get the family started on Disney at a young age), so we asked if they were possibly interested in a few subtle Toy Story references in the ceremony. They embraced the idea. They shared with us that during one of their first dates/hangouts they had a Toy Story marathon and watched all three of the movies. Happily, they were married not just till death do us part but to infinity and beyond!

The Wedding Party

The day of the wedding arrived last Saturday. The weather could not have been more beautiful that day. Although the groom looked handsome, the bride looked absolutely stunning. I am so glad to have her as officially part of the family. She adds a beautiful sweetness to the family.

At the end of the ceremony, Mr. Goofin' Off handed the bride and groom a permanent marker and told the them that they should write each other's names on the bottom of their shoes to show they loved and belonged to each other...just like the character Andy did in the movies. After the ceremony, as the bride and groom left the room, they played "You've Got a Friend in Me." And, in case you were wondering, they did write each others' names on their shoes...wish I had gotten a picture of that.

The Bride and Flower Girl Checking Out the Bouquet Together

I know that the bride had picked out her colors for the wedding long before we met and talked about adding a few subtle Toy Story references. The colors she chose for her wedding were purple and green...and they went beautifully well together. But, still...

...am I the only one who knows what character is white with accents of purple and green?  Anyone?  Anyone?  I'll give you a hint, if you don't know, you can re-watch Toy Story again.  Let me know in the comments if you know who I am talking about.

And to all my friends and family who read this blog, have a magical day!

  5. A beautiful wedding and great pictures that you show here. As I'm not familiar with he Toy Story (probably I'm the only one, lol) I can't make a guess :)
    It's great fun to see the units for the blocks of your quilt grow.

  6. Looks like a magical day for your whole family, and you're doing this 5 times this summer? 2017 will certainly be a year to remember! How lovely that they asked your hubbie to officiate & what a neat idea to incorporate those Toy Story references. We start Disney young around here too, I vividly remember sitting in the cinema with my eldest watching Lion King. He was a few months shy of 3 & I was heavily pregnant with the twins which made it interesting when he got onto my lap for a cuddle at the stampede scene! The following year Toy Story came out & that Christmas I frantically hunted the stores for a certain Space Ranger - boy was he hard to get but made an almost 4 year olds day. He still lives here with Woody in a box of toys our kids couldn't part with & now our grandsons play with them so our house still resounds to cries of "to infinity and beyond!" So yes I recognise those colors on that beautiful cake very well as belonging to that Space Ranger! Have a lovely week,
    Helen

    1. Helen, Thanks for dropping by! Yes, it is that special Space Ranger whose colors popped up as the colors of the wedding. We love all the years of fun, games, and play that Disney has brought to our family. We are always looking forward to what Disney has coming in the future. Thanks for stopping by and sharing. Have a great weekend! Andrea

    1. Yes, It was most definitely Buzz Light Year! I am pretty sure it was purely coincidence...and my ability to relate just about anything to Disney. But they couple embraced the subtle references to Toy Story, so it worked out perfectly. It was a very beautiful day! Have a great weekend, Jo! Andrea

  9. Well Buzz of course! That is one of my very favorite movies. How cute that you guys were able to incorporate Toy Story into the ceremony. I am sure they will remember this special day each time they watch the movie.

    1. Emily, It was so much fun that they wrote their names on the bottom of each other's shoes. We love the Toy Story movies. The first one is still my favorite...most days. I love the message of lasting friendship and being there for each other when difficulties arise. How fun that the movies were one of your first dates, too. Have a great weekend! Andrea

    1. Myra, Thank you! I think the blocks turned out beautifully. I was kind of going off my own design and hadn't sketched it out yet. I was happy with the outcome. Thanks for dropping by! Andrea

  15. What a wonderful wedding and I love the way you incorporated the Toy Story in a subtle way, it could have been so tacky but you chose the nicest elements. I love the writing on the shoes, such a thoughtful touch.

  16. I love the wedding theme, what fun! The gmen grew up with Toy Story and then Nathan got to enjoy all three, one of my favourites too.
    Congratulations to the happy couple, and of course, To Infinity and Beyond!
