Wedding: Reception


Last of the wedding photos (post 1 & post 2)!  We had our reception at Longworth Hall, an amazing historical building.  We hung buntings, giant hearts, and big panels with my illustrations of Wall-e & Eve and Brian & I.  Our guestbook was 3 old records signed with gold Sharpies.  My dad and Brian built wood boxes for the centerpieces that were filled with flowers from Posy & gold glitter hearts.  Our seating cards were flags in vintage thread spools.  We also made goodie bags for kids under 10 including homemade Pixar coloring books.

We had heart shaped donuts and mimosas for cocktail hour.  For dinner, guests chose scrambled eggs, quiche, or eggs benedict & all the fixins. Our cake by Marilyn's Cakes looked just like my sketch (plus cheesecake)!  Dad &I danced to Father & Daughter by Paul Simon.  Brian & Teresa danced to Child of Mine by Carole King.  We had our first dance together to La Vie en Rose by Louis Armstrong (from Wall-e, duh).  The three toasts were all so sweet.  Then we boogied all night long with our friends and family.  My cousin Samantha caught the bouquet.  We also found a few minutes to sneak away with Sarah to take a few photos just us in a long pretty hall.
