When we finished our final wedding shoot with Tim, we dropped him back at his hotel and headed to our own hotel for the night. We rented a nice room at the Hyatt for Mr. Funnel Cake to use the night before the wedding and for us to share the next day, because everyone deserves a little privacy on their wedding night!
It was sort of funny driving…do you remember Mama Funnel Cake insisting we drive in her gianormous full-size van to the church so that my wedding dress wouldn’t get ruined? Well, she lent us her very small Ford Escort after the reception to drive Tim around and get to and from our hotel by ourselves. Needless to say, it was a bit tight cramming my fluffy dress, hoop skirt and extra petticoat in and out of the two-door car without closing the door on some fabric.
The brothers who were late to their usher duties also had a secret; Brother C was actually laughing while he scraped the car because he had just broken the handle off the car window, with the window still partly rolled down! So the whole time driving around in the cold Columbus weather, we had an open window in the car. Brrrr.
At the hotel, Mr. Funnel Cake helped me out of my corseted cupcake dress after wearing it for an incredible twelve hours, and wouldn’t you know it, it was like a vacuum on my stomach was released. Suddenly I was STARVING.
I gave Mr. Funnel Cake some incredible puppy dog eyes and he asked me the question I was dying to hear: “Do you want to go to Wendy’s?” he sighed.
Mr. Funnel Cake had refused to take me to Wendy’s in my wedding dress during our break earlier that day, but all this girl wanted to do was go enjoy her favorite American fast food! We headed to Wendy’s and I ordered a small fry, five piece chicken nuggets, small chili and frosty (which only comes in “chocolate” if you ask this Wendy’s purist!).
It sounds a little crazy, but this was the BEST food I ate the entire day. It tasted so, SO good. Really hit the spot. And Mr. Funnel Cake just sighed some more as I dipped my fries and chicken nuggets in my frosty. Mmmm! (He thinks that’s so gross!)
The OSU Buckeyes game was playing on the television as well, and at the last moment we were able to score and win the game in typical last-minute Buckeye style. My team won, I was enjoying a frosty and I got married that day. It was really the best day ever!
Now that I’ve told you all about Funnel Cake wedding, I’m sad to say recaps are over. But don’t worry, I have a few more surprises to share with the hive and I’ll see if I can pull together a budget breakdown at some point. So hang tight until next time!
