Wedding, Part 4

We went straight from the ceremony immediately into the reception. Hotel 71 is awesome because we herded everyone into the cocktail area for an hour while our florist and the amazing hotel staff transformed our connecting ceremony area into the reception space.

Aaand massive drinking ensued.


Sister with friends. By the bar, of course.

I was beyond thrilled how everything turned out.

Woman's hand + alcohol = Drunk Grandma (who else?)


I threatened violence if he smashed cake in my face.

Cake was chocolate with real raspberries crushed in chocolate ganache filling.

Looooves you.

Mom, find me Dad's written speech and frame it. Seriously.

Laughter, just before tears. (Mine.)

Best man speech. Also incredible.

We love Joe.


Sister speech.

I look like I'm telepathically threatening her if she says anything embarrassing.

One of my favorite pictures of the wedding. I almost always tear up seeing it.

Photos were SO good. We never even noticed them.

Looks like a stock photo, but it's not.

No idea what was funny, but I was drunk. Could've been anything.

First dance. Wanna hear the song? Click below...

Look at his dimples. How adorable is that?

What a wonderful world.

Such a Daddy's Girl.

Mama's boy, dancing to Frank Sinatra's Shadow of Your Smile.

With sis and mom.

DRUNKY IS BACK. Along with the family friend who made my amazing veil.

Mom and Dad

Leave room for God, boys. Leave room for God.


We're very excited.

I SWORE I wouldn't do this. Drunk people lifting chairs? No, thanks.

Dave got dropped. He says he "bailed" but this was Attempt No. 2.

Hey, why not?

Ang and Mel!! Who's surprised Ang has bubbles?

Yeah, I wish I knew what the hell this was all about.

Our moms dancing.

Sneaking away from the reception for a few nighttime shots.

On Wacker.

And we're done.

Hope you guys enjoyed the wedding!!

I'll post honeymoon stuff next. I still haven't uploaded the pictures and I've been home for a few weeks now. I'll get to it, I promise. But not this weekend because I'm going to The Best Bachelorette Party Ever at some wineries just outside of St. Louis.

Have a fantastic weekend. :-)
