It’s that time of week again! It’s Friday, and it’s “Show us your life” over at Kelly’s blog. This is such a fun theme for me (and for a lot of people) so it’s going to be a long, photo-heavy post!
Our reception was held in a dining room on the campus of the college where we got married. (The chapel was relatively close to this and it was easy to get to.)
A wide shot:
I painted these for our head table. When I first saw them, the piece that they stand on was upside down and had candy in it. Since I made a lot of the decorations, I had a few mini-freakouts early on in the reception (trying to put things the way they were supposed to be.)
The back of one of the programs on our table – I made the programs. Our tables had fall leaves and candy corn spread beneath three votives (of different heights) as the centerpieces. People loved the candy corn 🙂
We have a lot of photos of us looking in different directions:
Cake cutting (in which he started to give me the cake about 3 times before I finally kind of yelled, “just give it to me!” It’s on video. It’s pretty funny.) I made the cake topper (the monogram), and the flowers matched those in our bouquets. They’re all silk.
“Thriller” made an appearance towards the end of the reception, and everyone enjoyed it. My husband and matron of honor actually practiced for a couple of weeks to make sure they got the dance down just right.
This is just a photo I had to share….just before the ceremony and drinking my “signature drink,” if you will:
And how random is this? We ran into one of our groomsmen in the Charlotte airport, the day after the wedding. This was over 2 hours from where the wedding took place. And we all hung out until our flight took off. It was actually a lot of fun!:
And that brings us to our honeymoon in the Bahamas. We stayed at an all-inclusive resort in Freeport, and it was a fabulous week!!
We took a ride on a glass bottom boat, and when it was over, the owner of the boat drove us back to our resort in his crazy van:
The day we sent sea kayaking (and the day I entered a sea kayaking race, and was partnered with a rather large man from Canada named Richard. He was not very amused by me – maybe it was all of the free drinks I had that day – but we made it through the semifinals. Of course, this is not me and Richard, but me and my husband!)
Our last morning, and a photo with our favorite bartender, David:
See? That was a lot of pictures! Hope you enjoyed them!
