Wedding: The Reception

Finally, our reception! After a delicious gumbo dinner, our guests continued to grab drinks from the bar (Of course we had to include cold cans and bottles of our favorite soda, Ale-8!), munch on home-made cupcakes, and chat.

Before we cut the cake, our friends gave toasts. I’ve known Chad since high school and Chet and Ganer go way back as well so it was such a treat to have them speak on our behalf. Their speeches were eloquent, beautiful, and funny to boot! I pretty much cry-laughed (Is that a thing?) the whole time.

Next up, my sister called everyone back into the Performance Hall for a little musical surprise. She performed a mash-up of “Where You Lead” and this Rebecca Lavelle song. (They’re the theme songs of two of our favorite tv shows–Gilmore Girls and McLeod’s Daughters.) It was too perfect!

Finally, we cranked up a playlist of our favorite songs and cut loose on the dance floor. Above we are serving some Bob the Drag Queen *REALNESS* to Purse First. Below we are spinning, vogueing, and singing along to Lost Bayou Ramblers, RuPaul, and Lady Gaga, respectively.

In the midst of the revelry, Chet and I made our way upstairs and stole a kiss as our guests cheered below. Such a cheeky but magical moment. Haha!

And then, as the reception drew to a close, we headed down the street to a nearby bar and enjoyed the company of our friends and family all the way ’til closing time. What an amazing party! I couldn’t have asked for a better reception and that was entirely due to the company we keep. Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate! We love you!!!

Thank you so much for indulging me as I shared a bajillion posts about our wedding. I hope you enjoyed them. I certainly enjoyed creating them and getting to re-live such a magnificent weekend full of love and loved ones.

Of course, none of these posts would be possible without the beautiful images captured by Sur La Lune Photography. So, immense love and gratitude to Carrie and Ganer for managing to preserve the day exactly as we saw it through our own eyes. You both amaze and inspire me. We will treasure our wedding photos forever and hold you in our hearts for just as long! xoxo
