Wedding cake

Was just going through some pictures of my brother's wedding a couple summers ago (3rd for him, 2nd for her) and thought you might find this picture of the cake interesting. She has a pair of Dutch Belted oxen that way close to a ton apiece.

Anything to do with oxen interest me. Would like to see what was so special about that wedding cake. Can you email me a picture or is that too much trouble as it was originally posted a year and a half ago? Saw another one of your postings dated 2002 regarding ox yokes and Bob Boynton. I mentioned it to him. He knew who you were. He's back in the business of making yokes and bows again. Thanks.

Is there some sort of criteria to follow, I mean, cakewise, when you're marrying the 3rd time around?

My cake was nowhere to be seen...had a great, beautiful, memorable and unforgetable third wedding. But now that you mention it? we didn't have a wedding cake.

Gotta work on that one..

Nice pic.

You that you mention it, I didn't get a cake either. When we came home from the courthouse my new maw-in-law threw dried pinto beans at us....Oh well, it'z my first and my wife's second. I ain't tryin no more, I got lucky the first time....Thank God!!!

I believe the throwing of rice at weddings in US comes from an Italian tradition, as a fertility wish. They also used to throw the newlyweds confetti, candy, nuts and raisins. I'll settle for rice thank you.

Is the throwing of pinto beans some sort of tradition around where you live? Just curious.

It's great that you hit the jack-pot in the first try, I did it in my third and we have a 30 contract.

Good luck

It just could be a Tennessee Tradition....can't put anything past us hillbillies. I think she did it cause she didn't have any rice handy...guess it coulda been worse :)
