SUYL: Wedding Reception/Honeymoon

Today @ Kelly's Korner it's Show us your life: wedding reception/honeymoon, and I'm excited to join in!

Once the ceremony was over, I had to rush into the back room and loosen my dress.. I almost passed out.. lol. This would be me telling my parents I needed to go.. now! :)

Our reception was held at the grand ballroom at a local college.

Z & I took lessons and did a swing dance to Glen Miller's In the Mood for our first dance.

My dad and I danced to Stephen Curtis Chapman's "Cinderella", performed live by a friend of ours.

I played the piano and my bridesmaid sang "There You'll Be" by Faith Hill for the Mother-Son dance.

This would be my sisters dancing w/Z.. if you can't read the caption, it says, "Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me?". lol..

From the looks of things.. our guests had a pretty good time:

My sisters gave an hilarious toast:

Z got the garter..

I threw the bouquet.. (please excuse the 'girls popping out..) :)

We played a slideshow showing us growing up & meeting. We recorded our voices telling "Our story" in the background. Props go to Z for the video editing. :)

We left to a sparkler send off:

We took a short honeymoon in NYC & a cottage in PA (can you tell Z was the photographer?):

Whoa! Sorry for picture overload.. I had like 1500 to choose from, can you blame me? :)

1. The lace up back dresses are killer - they are so nice but seriously will knock the wind out of a girl.

2. I adore that you took swing lessons for your first dance. That is so fun. I wanted to do that too but we never got around to it. Although my mom and dad were taking dance lessons for the few months prior to our wedding so my dad taught me a dance and we practiced and practiced for the father/daughter dance.

3. I love that photo with the sparkler spelling Love ... very cool.

4. You look good with the statue of liberty on your head.

Jen said...

Love the pics! My dad and I danced to Cinderella, also - we took lessons before the wedding and every lesson we'd get all teary - that song gets me every time!
