Wedding Recap: Reception

Finally, here are pictures from our wedding reception! I have SO many more details I want to share, but I do not have the professional pictures back yet, so these will have to do for now. I'm sure y'all are getting bored with wedding pictures!

Our reception was FABULOUS (at least I thought)! We had a really nice cocktail hour after the ceremony, then the guests moved down to the topiary garden for a seated dinner reception. The menu was amazing. During the cocktail hour, we had several passed appetizers, including stuffed mushrooms, grilled shrimp, mini pimento cheese sandwiches, and beef wellington. We also had a big fruit and cheese display...I wish I had pictures of it! The seated dinner started with a Southern greens salad (with peach vinaigrette), then we had grilled chicken stuffed with artichoke, spinach, and boursin cheese. And of course, dessert was wedding cake!

Our band was SO much fun. We had an eight-piece band that played everything from classic rock to Motown hits. Everyone stayed till the end, for the most part...Michael and I left by horse and carriage at the very end. We were going to do a bubble exit, but it was raining. Anyways, here are some pictures from our reception:

Every detail of our wedding was perfect. And the most important part, Michael and I are now MARRIED! I am definitely loving being a wife.

That's all for now...eventually I'll have a wedding details post, but otherwise, I'll be back to my regularly scheduled blogging. I'm sure you're getting tired of my wedding posts, so I will definitely be writing about something new and different soon. I hope you have enjoyed reading as much as I have enjoyed recapping everything! Have a great day!
