Wedding Wednesday

I completely lied. Don't hate me. There is just no way I could fit all of the pictures that were left into one post. Next week will be a couple of my random favorites, and then the after party and I SWEAR I am done, done, done.

Today we have the reception.

Our tables.... with low bunches of all white, mono-botantic flowers and swiss dot linens.

Place cards were all pinned into a big wall of boxwood

Gold foil paper goods 

The cake had my dress pattern in a very subtle, white on white design. It was supposed to have fresh flowers on top of it, but what can you do.

Our menu. I felt really strongly about having food that was actually, ridiculously delicious. Not just the usual banquet food and damn was it good.

Our first dance to Wrapped by George Strait. Every time I have heard this song I have wanted to get up and prance around the house with Spencer. That's how I KNEW it would be our song.

Damn I love this picture.

Our people. Truly the people we love more than anyone in the world. All 350 of them. In one room having fun. This picture embodies everything I loved about that night.
