Anniversary week part 4…the reception


Alright, we’re getting to the end of this 2-year anniversary wrap-up.

In case you’ve missed any of my previous post, be sure to catch up!

Part 1: Getting Ready

Part 2: The Ceremony

Part 3: The Chinese Tea Ceremony

And now onto the reception.  Party time!

Actually because we had our wedding on a Sunday (sooo much cheaper!) and it was in the ‘burbs, most of our guest were able to stay and party the night away.  That was perfectly ok with us since we were pooped and left the reception early!


Some of my DIY touches:

The red silk on the head table and the chocolate brown silks on the guest tables were all bought in China and brought over by my sister. I loved them! (and still have tons left if anyone is looking to buy *wink wink*)

Dave’s parents individually wrote the double happiness character on all 250 of our favors! A coffee cup (representing my addiction love for java) filled with Dave’s favorite candies (the man has a serious sugary sweet tooth).

Our first dance to “Make You Feel My Love” sung by Mick McAuley.

This was one of the many, many times I cried that day…

My sister and matron of honor, Rachel, gave a funny and heartfelt toast.

I got to meet my nephew Jadon for the first time!

This is where my dad surprised me with a slideshow of pictures of us with the song “Daddy Don’t You Know” playing in the background. It’s a father/daughter duet by Steve and Annie Chapman that we had sung together when I was a little girl.  Still makes me want to cry just thinking about it.

Love my dad!

My nephew Joshua definitely stole the show with his sweet dance moves.  I think his signature move was the jumping jack.

Can you guess what song was playing during the previous three pictures???

I love how in this picture I have an extra arm coming out of my hip, haha.

Probably one of the more awkward traditions at a wedding I must admit.


We did manage to sneak away and get some more lovey dovey shots:

None of these shots would have been possible without our amazing photographers, Alice and Jared.  Seriously people, book them!
