A Blonde Wedding: {Our Photos - The Reception}

Good morning, Blonde Ambitioners! Today is Tuesday, which means you officially survived Monday. Today, we'll look at photos of our wedding reception. There were quite a few, so I'm dividing this into two.

Arrangements of hydrageas, lily of the valley, ronoculous and english garden roses...all in ivory : )

Bridal portrait upon entering the cake room....Yes, our cake had its own room, haha!

Kissing balls made of hydrageas or english garden roses in ivory hung above the tables.

Stephen's groom's table was comprised of various Hog cupcakes, as well as a series of cheesecakes done by our favorite local restaurant. Coincidentally, the cake we served our guests was an exact replica of what we ate on our first date : )

A quiet kiss before making our grand entrance

First dance : ) Our first dance was to "To Make You Feel My Love" by Adele.

Ok...Many of you probably don't know that my husband is a GREAT dancer. Like, really, really good. Let's just say he broke it down on the dancefloor for the bridal party dance ; )

My husband is so shy, HA!

This dance ended with me "spanking" him in front of the entire room...the southern grandmas didn't know what to think, haha!

Be blessed, lovelies-


  1. Incredibly gorgeous! And I must ask - did you use a particular teeth-whitening method? Your pearly whites look dazzling!

  2. Gorgeous photos :) Obsessed with the color scheme! And the grooms table is adorable!
