pre-meltdown at the rehearsal
She insisted on wearing Nana's pearls to the rehearsal.
Thankfully, she did great during the actual wedding. Possibly because I told her that throwing a fit = no cake at the reception. Sure enough, as soon as she finished her flower girl duties and came to sit with me, she whispered, "Mommy, I did not cry. I'm ready for some of that chocolate cake now." Ha.
And the reception. Oh, the reception. Other than briefly eating, she danced 100% of the time FOR HOURS. It was exhausting--but impressive--to watch.
Dancing on Daddy's feet
And then she took Dave's hand, led him to the deejay, and asked if he would play "Let It Go" from Frozen. I've always known my child wasn't shy, but I've never seen her THIS uninhibited. EVER. She dominated the floor and danced/sang every part of the song with dead-on accuracy to the actual movie. It was hilarious. And at the end of her performance, everyone applauded... and she gave the most dramatic bow/curtsey I've ever seen. So, so funny.
So... looks like self-confidence isn't an issue. And apparently the next best thing to dancing is a photo booth...
Thanks, Kelly and Joey, for letting our girl be a part of your special day! Your wedding was beautiful and we had a great time!
