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:
The groom's cake (very popular and yes, everything was edible except the beer bottles):

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!
