We had our reception that night and it was a blast! I was so worried it was going to be the lamest wedding ever but it really wasn't! We still get compliments about how fun that night was! Our reception center was beautiful! It was at a club house on a golf course and we were able to hold most of the reception outside. The food and gifts were about the only things inside. Weather was perfect! I could not have asked for a more perfect night in St George!
hilarious! caught Eric doing the air guitar :)
crap! I wiped my dad out :)
Eric's family.. we weren't able to get a picture at the Temple
We had a line at our reception which I wasn't happy about but now I'm glad my mom made us do it (dang it..our mom's are always right!) It was non-stop people for over an hour and a half and the first break in the line my dad, me, and Eric all ran for it :) I know people kept coming after the line was finished but I was so unaware of them.. I was just too wrapped up in Eric haha. That's why I'm glad my mom made us do it. We got to actually see our friends and families who took time out of their lives to help us celebrate!
For music we were just going to put together a play list on our iPod and hook that up but with my dad being a musician he said he wanted live music. That's the only time he put his foot down in planning the wedding. So who better to provide live entertainment thatn.... my dad's band! The Lawn Darts played for our wedding! :) They were a major hit! Having them for our live band made the reception! Everyone felt so comfortable dancing and playing!
When my dad couldn't play with them (because he was standing in the line or dancing) my brother stepped in...so awesome!
first dance as husband and wife
daddy/daughter dance. yes that's a wet cheeck..I was totally crying
Eric dancing with his mom
oops I may have just kicked my husband in the mouth..
we had a money dance! ok I'll be honest...Eric made bank! I didn't do to well...I was tired haha!
I was so ready to go but Eric wanted to stay and keep dancing...what?! isn't the guys supposed to be dragging the girl out!?
finally! we're outta here and off to honeymoon!
Well this was a super long post.. congrats if you made it all the way through :) I'm so grateful to have the most amazing husband ever and I'm so glad I'm finally documenting this stuff! After 2 and a half years I've already forgotten so many details! So stick with me as I continue updating my blog to present time :)
