our wedding through the focused linz: the reception.
this week i am sharing some of my favorite photos that lindsey snapped during our wedding weekend.
so, we've now made it to the reception! the reception is supposed to be the most relaxing part of a girl's wedding day, but i would be lying if i said i wasn't stressed also about the proceedings during our reception. if you learn anything through my sharing of our wedding festivities, please let it be the following: calm down. relax. enjoy your wedding. throw caution to the wind. be in the moment. don't worry about when are we supposed to be cutting the cake or is this the right song to be playing while we eat. just enjoy your day. this is the party part. so.... party!
we danced to 'heaven,' by bryan adams
laughing over how awkward it is to dance for what feels like an eternity in front of a whole bunch of people
my dad & i danced to 'my girl,' by the temptations
we even made up a little routine
justin & his mom danced to 'have i told you lately,' by rod stewart
he danced with his sister, too
justin's louisiana tech groom's cake was red velvet - & delicious. it came from ambrosia bakery.
i love justin's face here - he is probably reacting to my you-better-not-smash-cake-in-my-face look
i wore the shoes my mom wore on her wedding day
justin's cousin caught the garter
i love this one of lindsey!
justin & i have been together since this little girl was a baby - now she's officially my niece!
i'm so glad people got up & danced!
not only do i love these two, but in the background, you can see my dad chatting with a guy he has been friends with since he was five years old...
i wish i knew which song we were dancing to in this one...
justin teases me for always dancing with my arms in the air... & here is the proof that it's true.
my favorite part of the whole reception was when all the couples got up & danced to elton john's 'tiny dancer.'
i love this one of landon & jennifer
as you may have read in this post, these two are now engaged
with mom & dad before the send-off
before we knew it, it was time for us to make our grand exit, running - me, trying not to trip on my dress - through a tunnel of bubbles & loved ones. it was surreal - our wedding weekend had come to a close - but we were already anticipating the next day, when we would board our flight, bright & early, bound for boston, massachusetts.
