30th Anniversary SURPRISE!

My in-laws 30th anniversary is next week. 
When they got married, there were only a handful of people in attendance & shortly after they had
to make their way from Seattle to Alaska. So they never got a honeymoon OR a wedding reception.

About 2ish months ago my sister in-law asked me to help her plan a surprise wedding reception
for their big milestone. I told her hell no but she made me do it anyways...

The surprise happened Saturday night & it was pretty awesome.
We spent all night Friday decorating & all day Saturday cooking.
I was Amanda's bitch. She pointed and I obeyed. But together, we got it done!

The wedding cake they never got...


Memory Lane.


Speech. He cried...

I was proud of all my random center pieces. Thanks mom! :-))

Chocolate on chocolate like they always wanted.


They thought they were going to a retirement party with their best friends.
They were surprised to say the least. Success!
