A friend had a smallish wedding and decided on Whole Foods cake. But what they did was to buy a bunch of different cakes (premade/in the fridge case at WF), put them on pretty cake stands they found while thrifting, decorated with some edible flowers, then used those as the centerpiece for each table. When guests arrived at the reception, their tables were named according to the cake type: Carrot Cake, Red Velvet, Chocolate Ganache, Vanilla.

Instead of having a "cake cutting" cake, they went from table to table to cut the cake and take pics with their table's guests surrounding them. AND they encouraged their guests to trade cakes with other tables. It was a great idea as it really broke down the ice. Within minutes, people were mingling and trading cake slices and chatting and laughing. Plus, I got to try all the cake flavors. Awesome!

They are a very attractive couple! What is best is the calm, relaxed happiness and self-confidence that they project, both individually and as a couple. Were they as good looking when they were young, or improve with age? And, if not intrusive, what became of your biological father? Just curious.

Pops got better looking as he aged...and finally allowed us to pick his haircut. He rocked the Jackie Chan/Bruce Lee modified Asian bowl cut for decades. It was hilarible.

Mom was always pretty, but now that she's grown out her eyebrows (she has that 70's pencil thin look), I think she looks amazing. But she won't go for microblading...yet.

Finally got the chance to watch this: tears. I hope I get that lucky to have 35 years with my spouse one day. My parents just celebrated 36!

Congrats to them :)

Thank you! I've shown the lovely comments to my parents, and they were very grateful for all of your kind thoughts. Mom asked for the link to share with her friends hahahahbaba

You're right. I cried. That was absolutely beautiful. I loved this video more than I love most wedding videos. You're parents are SO in love and this video captured that so well. I look forward to that in 35 years. :')

They're such different personalities; mom's super outgoing and gregarious. Pops is more introverted/socially awkward. She's loud and brash and expressive, Pops is quieter, more stern. On their own, they're too much. Together, they balance each other out. The older I get, the more I appreciate how well they work with each other. And how much love they still have after all these years.

Life goals! They're pics and video are absolutely beautiful as they're continued love of 35+ years. Thanks so for sharing because it has definitely inspired me to incorporate a photo session into mine and my husband's 20th anniversary trip this coming Nov. 21st.

If I could give all of you one piece of advice is to spend the money on great photos and videos. Unfortunately, our photographer wasn't very good and as much as I loved our wedding, I seriously would have rathered a small intimate affair to afford pics and videos of this quality.

Completely agree re: videographer and/or photographer. I understand that it can get expensive here in the US (my parents were fortunate enough to throw their party in the Philippines where the US$ goes pretty far. )

But I think even if they'd hosted the party here in the US, I would have convinced them to cut the guest list in exchange for at LEAST a photographer.

Two of his photos do show him digging large holes in the ground and stuff. So, a pun and a truth?

The profile had five or six photos of the same dude. I'm too scared to swipe just to satisfy my curiosity - I mean, this has to be a joke, right?

When I send you an email asking for further information about your technical request, please don't respond with "We should meet and talk about this face to face." Or "Can we talk on the phone?" Because no, I'd really rather not.

Just respond by email. Please. For the love of sweet baby jeebus.
