This week's Show us Your Life is featuring wedding receptions and honeymoons! When we left the ceremony we went to the TN River and took a few pictures that turned out to be my very most favorite. Here are two of them (again, sorry for the poor quality, but I've been married almost 5 years and have mostly film pictures that were scanned way back then).
After we took about 10 pictures, we got back in the limo and went to the Read House for our reception! Since our wedding was at 6:00, we had a heavy buffet by candlelight. I wish I had a picture of our centerpieces, but they were candelabras with white candles on mirrored tiles and white votive candles and roses around the edges.
I found this cake in a Martha Stewart magazine and then added a square tier on the bottom since we needed about 350 slices. (yes, we fed 325!!!!!) It was white on white with raspberry filling. I also had them add crystal snowflakes all over it and our monogram in the center.
This was my favorite picture of us by the cake.
Michael picked out his cake. He loves the outdoors and camping, so we found a picture of a tree stump and had our initials put on it. It was chocolate/chocolate with silk holly leaves around it.
I wish I had my very most favorite reception picture scanned, but it is a closeup of his hand around my waist and it is an awesome shot, but instead, here is one of our first dance.
My dad and I danced to "My Girl" and it was a lot of fun and people still talk about how fun it was to watch! My dad had some skills no one knew about! Ha!
Some of the ADPi sisters that came to the wedding.
We did another leaving scene leaving the hotel (to just drive around the block and come back for the night! Ha!). Yes, I am holding my train because my bustle broke about an hour before. :-(
For our honeymoon we stayed at Sandals Ocho Rios, Ocho Rios, Jamaica. It was the best trip we've been on. It was absolutely beautiful!!!!
We got there on Monday afternoon and stayed until Saturday. It was so relaxing and fun!We ate, ate, and ate some more while we were there. This was the third night when we ate at the restaurant on the beach. FUN!
The last night we were there we ate at an Italian restaurant and I love this picture because it shows how much fun we had that week. We signed up for the frequent guest club, but sadly haven't been back. Depending on what is going on in our life in January, we may go to another Sandals resort for our fifth anniversary.
