Mr. and Mrs. Thomas (34 years)
Our First Date
High school sweethearts, Carolyn and Joseph Thomas met at
church, where her dad was the pastor. These sweethearts did not
start off that way! In fact they really disliked each other. Their first date
happened as a favor to Joseph's best friend. Carolyn's cousin was going on a
date with Joseph's friend but she did not want to go without Carolyn. In order to make this date happen, Joseph's friend paid him $10 to take Carolyn to the movies. What started out as favor to a cousin and best friend
turned into a heartwarming love story! The two sealed the deal on June 9, 1979. Thirty-four
years later and they are still 'dating'!**The best $10 ever spent!!!!**
State/Country of Residence: *Oklahoma / USA

WEDDING RECEPTION FOOD TERMS (via: www.weddingsforaliving.com ) ANTIPASTO: (“before the meal”) traditional first course of a formal Italian meal. Unlike hors d’oeuvres, antipasto is served at the table and traditionally consists of cured meats, marinated vegetables and cheeses. BUFFET : Casual way to serve a large group of guests; a variety of dishes displayed on tables that guests can pick and choose from. Typically doesn’t work for venues with numerous small rooms.

FRENCH SERVICE: This individualized and highly skilled type of food service is not very common in the U.S. Rather than being plated in the kitchen, white-gloved waiters prepare food table side from a single large dish or platter held by another waiter. Each guest is served individually. HORS D’ OEUVRES : (“outside the work” in French). Appetizer typically served befo
You have exchanged rings and vows! You are done taking wedding party pictures...now what?! Before you enter the reception hall and dance the night away take a few moments to enjoy being married. After all, this is the moment that you both have been waiting for! Don't worry about your guests, they will be fine without seeing you for another 10 minutes. Take some time to be alone as a couple. Once you enter the reception doors you will be swamped with conversations, hugs, kisses, pictures, toasts, and dancing. Eat!! Sounds crazy but my husband and I did not get to eat at our reception. I remember the wait staff preparing our plates...they handed them to us...we sat at our Sweetheart Table...was about to take a bite...and then guests started talking to us! At the end of the night we realized that we only had a piece of cake (the small piece that you feed each other for the photo op) and a sip of Sprite during the toast.
