Baker Wedding: The Send Off!

Sigh...the last of the wedding re-cap posts.

When I first stumbled across this picture on Pinterest, I knew immediately what we were going to do for our send off. Since Cameron and I don't agree on football teams, we split the colors, ordering half garnet and half orange.

I found them cheapest at Oriental Trading and waited for a sale to come along also.
We passed them out during one of the last songs and as you could expect between two rival teams, it got a leeeeeetle rowdy.
The Clemson fans started doing their little chant and all the Carolina fans would have to do is stick out their hand with 4 fingers held up (as seen below). For those of you who don't follow college football, we've beat Clemson 4 years in a row. I'm not getting cocky (no pun intended), I know that streak could easily be ended.....but hopefully not. :)
That's my Dad's best friend, Franco, tossing out the pom poms and Cameron and Ted on the mic doing their little Clemson chant.
And this would be my Uncle Jay.
My Dad wanted to test out the send off line. His moment of glory if you will. 
And then it was our turn! 

We left in style on Cameron's family's sportfisher, The Major Motion!
So fun! One of my favorite parts of the wedding. 
Cameron's cousin, who drives the boat, backed it up so that we could say bye one last time to our family and friends.
And then we had a mini photo shoot on the boat. 

We also had some stalkers, I mean, friends who came to the wedding by boat. 
Then we sat down for the first time in probably 8 hours and chilled as hubby and wife! 

Got dropped off at the Wappoo boat ramp and were picked up by Compass Transportation. Highly recommend them if you are looking for any kind of transportation!
Then, we were taken to our hotel room at The Francis Marion, where we were upgraded to the penthouse level and stayed in one of the Harbor View Suites! Score!

Thank you to each and every one of you who left sweet comments regarding our wedding. I had so much fun looking back at the pictures, re-living that amazing night.
