Want to incorporate your love of sports in your wedding photos? Take a cue from groom Nick Jones, who created a photo commemorating his favorite basketball team — the Cleveland Cavaliers — at his Akron, OH wedding. When word of LeBron James’ potential return to Northeast Ohio came out the previous week, Jones amassed his jersey collection for his eight groomsmen to wear while he stood in the middle, recreating James’ powder toss. The guys then wore the jerseys for their introduction at the reception, Fox Sports Ohio reported. The future newlyweds went to a Cavs game for their third date, so luckily, Jones’ bride-to-be, Christa Deckard, was on board with the idea, too.
One father of the bride took a gamble by ditching the father-daughter dance song the two had previously selected for the occasion and went with an original song he wrote instead. The results, of course, were amazing. Check out the bride’s emotional reaction in the video above.

Believe it or not, one of the major wedding elements guests remember most isn’t what the newlyweds wore, the couple’s first dance or the awkward family speeches, but the food! Whether it’s a formal sit-down, a more casual buffet or something a little off the beaten path, guests will definitely take note of the food served that night — and whether they had to stop at a drive-through on the way home. Bon Appétit shares nine tips for serving delicious reception meals.
