Part 3: Ceremony and Cocktails
Kyle and I had the best night of our lives. We were so thrilled to see our guests enjoying themselves. It was surreal seeing all my hard work fall in to place. I definitely had my dream wedding!
As the guests entered the reception, they picked up their escort card. I embossed 3 white snow flakes and then my mom wrote the names of each guests in black.
Our gift table was also where we put the wine guest book. We decided to display the Merci sign during the reception. I thought it was perfect for the table.
I previously blogged about these lovely cake pops that were our favors. I can’t thank my mom enough for making all 150 in one day. They were a hit!
Using the same silver paper, I made menu cards for each place setting. We also decided to bring in silver linen. At first, I didn’t think it was necessary but I am SO thankful I spent the money. It made such a difference in the decor.
I previously blogged about the table numbers which were cities we’ve visited together. I decided on the silver stands which I think went great with the linen.
We were so happy the way our cake turned out!
Now it was finally time to enjoy the party. This is one of my favorite wedding photos! We were so excited!
The guests were clinging glasses all night.
My sister’s toast was the best that I have ever heard. A small part of it was about gifts Kyle has given me in our relationship. Unfortunately, when we were in high school, I thought this blanket was a good idea. I was shocked when my sister brought it out. Our guests thought it was hilarious!
She was an amazing MOH.
I had to post this picture because of our expressions. Right before we were about to cut it Kyle told me he was going to smoosh it all over my face. Clearly, I didn’t like that idea and was telling him be better not. I’m glad he listed to me!
The first dance was one of the only moments where I felt like Kyle and I were the only ones in the room.

Then, it was Kyle and his mom’s turn.
Finally, after a great meal it was time to dance. We had such a great time dancing the night away!
Kyle hugging it out with his best friend/groomsmen. This picture makes me laugh every time!
The end of the night quickly came but this picture sums everything up for me. Kyle and I together surrounded by our friends and family.
We had the perfect day!
