5 years ago today I married PJ Burchett in a fun filled, luau themed wedding.
Can you tell we are car people? I think this was one of the last events while PJ and Larry were still designing the Tomcat. Can I gush for a minute? That beautiful car was recently sold at the Barrett Jackson Auction! (not by us, unfortunately!) If you like the cars and want to see more of what my husband and his father create, check out their website here.
Our dear friends, generously volunteered their home for our big day. Speaking of talented people in my life, they built this place themselves! Amazing...and BEAUTIFUL!
PJ worked really hard leading up to the wedding to restore his mother's yellow Ford so it could be at the wedding too.
I worked really hard leading up to the wedding on the decorations. We (myself and my amazing friends) did almost everything ourselves and did it on a really small budget.
I wanted this wedding (my second) to be fun and so we went with a luau them and really bright colors.
There were Hawaiian Leis, palm leaf fans, and flip flips for our guests to use.
We had a tropical bar and a watermelon pirate ship (carved by my talented husband to be in the middle of the night, on the eve of our wedding!) because what wedding doesn't need a watermelon pirate ship!
The grooms cake had a solid chocolate bride and groom and old car. The cake frosting was melting, so it looked like the car was sinking in the mud! Also, during delivery, some of the icing melted off the main wedding cake (did I mention it was outrageously hot?) but one of my art teacher friends hid it with some floral accents. Oh well! It all tasted great, so who cares.
