I just got all of our professional photos back so I can post everything now! I’ll repost a couple photos so you don’t have to go back and dig to see them all. I posted about this before but we had a lot of people not show up. As in 14 out of 70 RSVPd and then five of those didn’t show. I was so depressed before the wedding but when it got here I didn’t care – I was so happy to be getting married. Because so many people didn’t come I had to upgrade everything as much as I could to meet minimums. I had a full open bar, added a candy bar, uplighting, added linens and upgraded everything I could. It was crazy but it came out really nice. I had a cocktail hour with 7 different appetizers, then during the reception a salad then main course. Because I had already ordered 5 centerpieces and in the contract it was too late to cancel I added those flowers to the ceremony instead. The venue was great. They literally took care or everything and I had no worries. My day of coordinator would bring me wine whenever I asked before the ceremony. I needed it because I was so nervous. But everything came together perfectly – could not have been any better.

Entering the reception –
Just some of me – I am so happy I went with a ball gown. I posted here a few weeks before my wedding freaking out that I looked fat but the day of I felt perfect –
I was loving that open bar – here you can see my bustle also (ballgown bustle , I didn’t want it to look bustled)
Cutting the cake – it was soooo good. Vanilla with a raspberry pineapple filling on the top two and tiramisu on the bottom
And exhausted at the end of the night –

You have such a wonderful attitude about the lack of RSVPs! I myself had a very intimate wedding and wouldn’t have traded it for anything; I hope that you loved every second out of celebrating with those closest to you.
Every detail is lovely and you look stunning in that ballgown! You and your H look so happy. Congratulations!

Wow wow wow, you look absolutely beautiful and the venue and decorations are gorgeous!! I’m so glad you enjoyed yourselves and didn’t let the guest count bother you. In fact I think its more beautiful that it was an initmate wedding with people who care and wanted to share your special day with you.
Congratulations to you and hubby!

Stunning! Your dress is amazing and you look so beautiful in all the pictures! Congratulations!
This makes me feel better because I’m in the same boat as you (14 out of 62 coming) and I was worried about it being so small but you show you can pull it off with class and have an amazing day!
Thank you for sharing!
