Now for the last part of the recap… The reception!!
It was SO much fun! Lots of laughs and a few tears and lots of dancing!
Our first dance: (we danced to Dave Fenley and the Good Deal’s Really Good Man)
Father/Daughter Dance… we dance to Natalie Merchant’s Kind & Generous.
Step Father/Daughter Dance… We danced to Big Head Todd’s It’s Alright.
My Step Father has no kids of his own, so sisters and I are all he has… and it meant a lot to him to have a dance… He’s known me for most of my life so it was pretty special… he kind of lost it and just kept saying “this is the highlight of my life!”
All of the ladies in my family (and our very close friends family) have a thing for Kenny Loggins and at the two weddings we’ve had in the two families so far, we’ve always played “Celebrate Me Home” and we call it our “ya ya’ moment… So it was obviously something that had to be played at my wedding!
The Cake: (this is actually a bit of photoshop magic to make it look better, it had melted quite a bit!!)
My Niece has quite the moves!!
All of the girls in my family and all of my friends danced at the same dance studio growing up so they all knew the Thriller dance (it’s a dance they do every year) so when thriller came on they HAD to do the dance! 🙂
The boys kept it classy with only 2 keg stands. 😉

Officially cried @ “this is the highlight of my life!” When you were crying at the speeches was it the Maid/Matron of Honor speech or your father’s?
You guys did such a great job! It looks like such a fun party! 🙂

Everything looks absolutely beautiful in your recaps! Thanks for taking the time to put all the pictures up so nicely. I do have one question if you remember, where did you buy the pitchers for the drinks and how many gallons did it hold. I want to find something like that as well.
