The Best Day Ever...The Reception {Part 2}

More reception fun...I just had to post these--too great for words. In this lineup, more dancing from the live musical stylings of Scat Springs, action from the garter/bouquet toss, late night treats for the guests, and our sendoff into honeymoon land!

The Best Day Ever...The Reception {Part 1}

The best part, right? To me, the ceremony was the most important part of our wedding celebration, but I think all brides can agree that the part they look forward to the most after months and months of planning is the reception...the perfect time to see all your hard work pay off, and the time where you can cut loose with your friends and family, and have the time of your life! Up first, the beginning elements of the reception--transportation to the venue, entrances and first dances, cake cutting, and then time for dancing! {Forgive me ahead of time, we're going to have a few reception posts...just so many fun pictures to share!
The spiffy bridal party ride
let the fun begin
BFF picture time!
William...seriously, can he get any cuter?
He was dancing up a storm with Boom Boom Pow
yes, there was a pole ;)
some of the bridal party introductions...
we walked in to Black and Yellow, and it was perfect!



Ready for our first dance...Meaning by Gavin Degraw

 The parents' toast...do they not look awesome?

 Our pinky promise game...forever and always
Time to cut the cakes!! They were just too pretty
 My cake was a 4 tier vanilla almond cake with buttercream cream
cheese icing topped with ivory fondant and sugar peonies
He played nicely ;)

Jeff's grooms cake was a Jack Daniel's bottle--a kahlua chocolate cake with
chocolate cream cheese icing...so rich!
 Dancing with my Papa
Scat Springs Band... amazing! {P.S. Check out everyone in their sunglasses...
one of the fun favors we had for the guests}

 The Grays on the dance floor

 And yes, Mom is clearly having a great time...and so happy it was finally time to party!
