The reception came and went the fastest, as most enjoyable things tend to do. Like I said in my last post, we all got there about an hour early because I wanted to make sure everything was the way that I wanted. Once it was, we all settled in our bride and groom rooms, and drank a little, took some pictures, touched up our make up…you know, what ladies do. I don’t even know what the men did but what I do know is that they really didn’t stay in their room, on the other side of the ballroom, for very long. I guess we all just couldn’t stand to be away from one another ;)
Soon, everyone started coming, and I started to get a little nervous again. I think Dominic felt that and pretty much stayed at my side almost the entire afternoon/night.
Our reception went pretty flawlessly. We were all introduced, everyone gave their speeches, we ate delicious food, danced/drank the night away and really, I think I can speak for all of us when I say that we pretty much lived in each moment. All of these long months of planning, and the day was finally here, the day we dreamed about. Our day. And it was perfect.
Once it got dark out, the place was dimly lit, and there were candles everywhere and it was just so romantic. It truly did make everything that much more intimate, which is exactly what I wanted.
And then toward the end of the night, we did did sparklers, which was SO fun. I’m so glad we went through with that plan!
Being able to celebrate such a special, momentous occasion with our closest friends and family was the best part of it all though. I don’t think this day would’ve been as perfect without them. We are so grateful to have such wonderful people in our lives!
This weekend, Dominic and I are celebrating our one year anniversary by spending the weekend away for some much needed alone time! We are so excited and in case you’re curious, we are definitely going to RPM again :)
Thank you so much for letting me share our big day with you guys, I love having this little community and I love knowing that I’ll always have this space to come back to!
Have a good weekend!
