Wedding: Reception and Details

Okay I bet you thought I forgot to do the rest of the wedding posts……..

 

I sort of did. But now I remembered. I can’t believe it’s been more than two months. Every time I go on Pinterest and see wedding things I die a little inside. At least now I can pin house decorating ideas. Who am I kidding? It’s not nearly as fun. Is anyone getting married? I’ll help you plan!!!!

I left off recapping the ceremony which took place right at the reception hall. This made it really easy! Since we did the pictures before hand all we had to do after the ceremony was snap a couple family pics then we were on our way to make it through the line of our guests at the cocktail hour. This was really important to us since we didn’t have a receiving line. We wanted to make sure we talked to as many people as possible. I’ll admit it was a little overwhelming, and I worried that I wouldn’t be able to talk to everyone. But when the night was over I had at least said hello to every single guest.

We made our way in after the cocktail hour and immediately did our first dance, parent dances, and speeches.

The speeches were great!

Then after we ate (hardly even remember the food) we were basically free! We had to say hi to a few more people then the only thing “formal” left to do was the ice cream!!!! OMG it was SO GOOD! I want more NOWWWW

Good thing I have these pictures because the reception went by in SUCH a blur. I seriously wish I could go back and experience it again. It’s so bizarre how you spend so much time planning and obsessing and then it’s just….over. Ah, oh well.

    Your wedding was so beautiful!!! I love all of your finds on Pinterest. I love your burlap banner, cupcakes and Instagram sign. So so cute. The ice cream looks WONDERFUL too!!

    I wish I could get married all over again, dang it. I didn’t have Pinterest and things were just not nearly as cute back then. 😉
