Wedding Week!!!! The Reception!


" My reception, MY reception..." Oh I feel like Shelby from Steel Magnolias! Except mine was not done in blush and bashful which, I may remind you are "two totally different shades of pink!"

We had our reception overlooking the ocean. It was so gorgeous with the sun setting.






We had a great band that played Earth Wind and Fire, Motown everything and a little Michael Mcdonald too!

Hubby changed into the white jacket and looked amazing!!!!

When my guests were looking for their tables they found their picture next to the table name!







Each table was decorated with a different flower arrangement and named with a theme. This table was done to honor my Grandmother. Purple of course!



Then menu was filet, grilled asparagus and garlic mashed potatos. We also had many pitchers of Mojitos served!!

I'm tagging always organizing , diapers to designs, Self Confessed Lamp Tramp, Kikibee, and Keeks and Brie! Show us your receptions!!!

The idea for the place cards? Ingenious! And so thoughtful!

And the flowers in honor of your grandmother? Just perfect.

Clearly, a lot of time, thought, and HEART went into the planning!
