Dave and Marie’s Wedding

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

Congrats to the happy couple!!! :mrgreen:


I love these guys! πŸ˜€

Dave and Marie make such a great couple. You can tell how much they enjoy being with one another. It’s so nice to see a couple who is truly best friends like they are. I really felt honored to be part of their special day.


The wedding ceremony was held at the hotel and Marie’s uncle officiated the marriage. Here’s Dave and his best man (Mal) waiting for the bride.


Marie’s mom walked her down the aisle.




The banquet room for the reception was gorgeous! It was stylish, sophisticated, and romantic with dim lighting, votive candles, white roses, black striped linens, and splashes of deep purple.



The reception started with the introduction of the wedding party and then went right into Dave and Marie’s first dance as husband and wife.




Mal did an awesome job with his Best Man speech. He combined a sentimental story with some funny memories of the couple. He received lots of compliments over the course of the night.


For dinner, we started with a goat cheese salad.


The main entree was stuffed chicken with mashed potatoes and vegetables.


Our table.


Cake!!! :mrgreen:







THE dress! πŸ˜€


After dinner and dessert, we spent the rest of the evening dancing.





It was fun.


After Party

Our friends were well prepared for the after party.

One word: Beer-ritas.


Yep, it was one of those nights! πŸ˜‰


(I actually drank a TON of water last night and woke up feeling totally fine this morning. Thank goodness! I don’t do well with hangovers. I’m such a baby!)

It was a fantastic wedding!! Dave and Marie were so happy all weekend. I loved seeing them enjoy themselves so much. Plus, they really know how to throw a party! πŸ˜€



  1. Looks like a great night! I love the colors for the wedding..deep purple is elegant πŸ™‚ You look great in your dress by the way!

  2. Looks like you had alot of fun! I had to comment because dear YOU ROCKED THAT DRESS! πŸ™‚ Gorgeous!

  3. I love posts about weddings! Dave and Marie’s looked like so much fun! And that Rent the Runway dress was awesome. You looked fab! πŸ™‚

  4. Looks like an amazing wedding and you guys seemed like you had so much fun. That picture in the bathtub is too cute – I definitely have some memories like that one…
    You’re dress looks HOT! (Especially since it’s showing off your Body Pump-toned limbs!)

  5. If I knew how to wolf whistle I would, but it usually ends up a bit spitty. That dress looks fantastic! Amazing, really! And I have never made beer-a-ritas like that before, with the beer bottle tipped in like that. Now I’m going to have to do it. Looks like a fun wedding πŸ™‚

  6. I love the dress! Just wondering if anyone knows of a company in Canada does the rentals? I love your blog but I am bummed that we can’t use all the awesome resources you give us and/ or buy the products you give the links to. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!!

  7. Wow! That dress is so much more stunning when you see it on a real person in a real context. Did you get tons of compliments? It looks fab in pictures. =)

  8. You look stunning! I love your dress πŸ˜€ Congrats to Dave and Marie! I like how it says “It was fun.” and then there’s that awesome/startling picture of you two. πŸ˜€


  9. I love weddings!! I wish people had danced at ours though. No one would! It was just my husband and me and then my best friend and her husband. Eventually we had the ring bearer and flower girl dance. But I guess everyone else wanted to be party poopers!

  10. So much to comment on – Marie looks beautiful, I’m glad Mal’s speech went well, you look fab in your beautiful dress, the cake looks amazing, such clever decoration, and the after party looks….messy! I’m glad that you were feeling ok this morning, I so would be hungover after beer-aritias!

  11. Oh my goodness–that dress–you look spectacular! The last picture of you and Mal is cracking me up. Too fun!

  12. OOh, I love that dress you picked out. It’s very romantic looking and cute! And Marie’s dress is gorgeous too with that halter strap. You must give us a low down on the beer ritas! Just a regular magarita w/ beer added?

  13. beautiful wedding! I’m planning my wedding right now so I LOVE looking at wedding pictures…and healthy food blogs so I can look good on my big day πŸ˜‰
