The Reception

The reception was AMAZING!! Some of my favorite things:
  • the cake!!!
  • the string quartet (background music)
  • the band (joe muscolino)
  • dancing! such a good turn out!
  • the food- even though I only ate an egg roll, the food looked incredible and everyone said it tasted really good
  • the ice sculptures
  • the bridesmaids and groomsmen outfits
  • the flowers
  • party favors- candy bars with our names on them
  • no line! (we reached our goal of not having the guests stand in line)
  • our choreographed first dance
  • the butterflies... in theory, it is a great idea for the send off. but they didn't quite fly..
  • last but not least- all of our family and friends who were able to attend and make it incredible!
by the way... I went a little crazy and put up a lot of pictures.. I just couldn't decide!
