wedding stuff: the Reception

Wednesday, January 28, 2015

Our reception was planned to be the ultimate party (or at least... the ultimate party for us). So when it was all over and everyone kept commenting on how much fun they had had, I knew we had done our job. I tried to set it up so there was always something to do, no matter what you were into. So the list of activities (and work) felt like it was never ending. 

While we were taking pictures, we invited everyone to come play lawn games with us. We took advantage of the huge yard we have and set out a few adorable oversized games.

I feel like a broken record, but even these games have a ton of loved stuffed into them. The signs were written by my cousin and his girlfriend. The dominos set was made by my grandfather, the awesome Scrabble set was made by my mother-in-law, and the Kerplunk game was made by my dad.

Under the tent, the decorations were all done by some people from our church. We have a rather small congregation, and these people have watched me grow up, so they're almost a part of our family. I was so humbled by the work they put into making everything lovely.

We got to display the dresses of my Granny, my mom, and Adam's mom. It was such a great touch, but it also added a bit of humor to the night. Everyone kept thinking they were ghosts!

We didn't get any pictures of it, but we made cones out of books for people to put their lavender in while they waited to toss it. It was a great alternative to birdseed. I smelled wonderful all night!

It'd been a dream of mine since high school to get my face on a Jones bottle, so of course we had to buy some personalized bottles for the head table. I only wish we could have bought some for everyone!

Since we were having so many dessert options, decided to have a small cake. There is a girl who we know who does cakes, so I was thrilled to be able to have her make mine. I loved how colorful it was inside!

My Maid of Honor's husband had put together this awesome photobooth for their wedding, and they were kind enough to let us use it. If you can get a photobooth for anything ever, I totally recommend it. Looking through the photos later made us laugh so hard!

After cake, cupcakes, and pie it was time to really party. We spent the whole night dancing, playing games, laughing, and talking to friends. 

And it was the best.
