Our Big Day: The Reception

When planning our wedding, Bradley and I both agreed that we wanted a fun party atmosphere for our reception with our favorite foods included.  Our wishes were granted- the reception was everything we wanted and more.  All of our hard work and planning finally paid off! {Warning: picture overload}

I want to start with a few details of the reception first before showing you all the fun we had.

Our picture signing book for all those who missed it at the ceremony.

The amazing display my cousin made for cards from our guests!

Koozies were our favors.

The food was so good and prepared by a local family friend trying to break into the catering market.  We had many different options for our guests to choose from!

Beer and wine were both served.

And now for all the fun!  The pictures tell all!

After the wedding party introductions, we had our first dance.

"Baby I Love Your Way" Peter Frampton

I surprised my mom with a Mother/Daughter dance to "Because You Loved Me" by Celine Dion.

Bradley and his mom danced to "In My Life"- The Beatles

Toasts by the Best Man and Maid of Honor
Cutting of the cake

 This tradition did come true...these two got engaged a few months later and are now happily married!

We did not want this awesome party to end, but had to get on the road to 
Atlanta to catch our early flight the next morning for our honeymoon.  

To this day, our friends and family still tell us how much fun they had, how amazing the food was, and how they talk about that night regularly! Mission accomplished.

Everything looks gorgeous! I really love the lights under the tables. We had draped lights in our tent and I think they really add to the feel of the wedding!
