{{RECAPS}} RECEPTION (Pic Heavy)

>> Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Thanks to my loyal readers, love you guys, thanks for sticking around even after the wedding was over and the big gaps between postings........you guys rock!!!
OK so on to more recaps!
Our reception was BEYOND FUN!! We were introduced and walked into our reception to the Star Wars Theme, yep that's right, I totally surprised the hubby and asked our DJ to play that. He was so geeked about it and I just died laughing, I thought it was hilarious!


We had our first dance to Etta James' beautiful classic At Last. It was such a sweet moment and I just danced with my sweetie and forgot that everyone else was there. We took that moment to kind of talk about the day and laugh :)





We had our sweetheart table in the middle, over looking the room so that we could mingle with everyone.



No one really danced like I thought they would but they all had a BLAST and talked and caught up.





Our cake was more than I had ever imagined...Gail Wilson did such an amazing job! There was no mushed cake on either part, we both agreed not to do it...although I was tempted.




Throwing the bouquet was fun and hilarious.....I threw it and it hit the ceiling and fell in the kid section and they were fighting over it, LMAO!


{Sparkler Send-Off} I decided at the very last minute to have sparklers and got super lucky and found them at a local party store for about $50 for 100 36" sparkles...SCORE! I got a gorgeous glass vase to hold them at TJ Maxx for $12.

This was at the end of the night and we were both so tired but I thought it would be a cool shot.
