- Wedding: March 2012
I’ve been having a lazy Saturday, looking at our wedding reception pics and smiling, so I thought I would post some in a recap 🙂
Our wedding programs, made by my mom and sis-in-law.
This is a pic of the room, which I loved– even the ugly green chairs :/…
Our wedding wasn’t the most traditional- but I loved every moment just the same. When we had some minister (and family) issues, we moved our wedding date up and had a small (kids and parents only) ceremony….BUT …. we still had this venue- a small local conservatory. We had sent out save the dates to about 50 family and close friends… So, we decided to host a Wedding Celebration and re-affirm our vows in front of family and friends with a DIY reception :). Our parents, family and close friends assisted with every part of our special day including our buffet style dinner, the music and the flowers.
Reaffirming Vows- we were brought into the garden by my brother and sister in law and talked about why we were thankful for the support of our family and friends. We did a unity sand ceremony and then our moms both blessed our union by asking everyone to make a circle of support around us and leading a prayer.
Family Fun- we had all kinds of card games at the reception- Uno, Family Feud, Skip Bo, Apples 2 Apples, Scrabble Slam. Each guest recieved a game as a favor.
One of the things that I loved about our celebration was the sense of family and fun. It was relaxed and intimate and we were surrounded by people that cared about us. These are a few reaction shots to our guests playing “Chris and Keisha Jeopardy.” Each table was a team and if they knew the ‘question’ to the answer- they had to make a funny noise before my broth- our very own Alex Trebeck- called on them…. Each table had a score sheet and the questions all have to do with our evolving, wonderful relationship.
Some of our DIY Touches- this is a pic of our candy buffet…
We had a cupcake tower instead of wedding cake…
This is our DIY Memory Candle and table for my huband’s deceased brother and other family with us in spirit…
Our flowers came from the local Farmer’s Market- including my bouquet…
We also did a DIY Photobooth that was hilarious!
By the end of the evening, we were tired but so very happy and feeling so blessed and supported. 🙂
With our dear mamas…
I kept asking my little one to leave my dress ALONE! :/
Just the two of us in the atrium at night 🙂 … I am so happy to be his wife.
