Going to the Chapel.

Saturday, August 31, 2013

I love weddings. I get absolutely giddy during them. I mean, who doesn't?


Two of our family friends, Kate and Danny, recently tied the knot in a gorgeous wedding ceremony complete with a beach reception! 


After a lovely church ceremony (where I refrained from taking pictures) and a piece of this cake that looks like it's out of a fairytale, I grabbed my dancing shoes and went to the beach!



The building the reception was held in was decorated beautifully, but being the vain girl I am, I immediately headed to the restroom before the appetizers arrived. 


Kate (The Bride) had taken care of every little detail possible.

Besides having a little 'Emergency Basket' in the restroom, she had a basket stuffed full of flip flops for our aching feet once the dancing commenced.



 She must have known that my 6-inch heels would be abandoned mid-party!


After fawning over the restroom (I'm a girl, it happens), I found my place card and sat down to enjoy the appetizers! 



The soup we had was so good that it left everyone shocked. (See above.)


After the appetizers were devoured, I slipped outside to enjoy the beach sunset before a long night of dancing. 

It was too dark to photograph the rest of the reception, but I do have a video to leave you with. 

I'll call it 'The Proper Way to have the Best First Dance Ever.'

    1. I loved that idea too! Clearly she knew me better than myself. Not having to wear my heels the whole night was wonderful!

  3. When I was little, I found weddings really boring (sitting for a long time - I don't know what was wrong with me) but I love watching them now. Probably the best part is when the bride and groom have their first kiss as a married couple <3

  11. I love weddings! I agree with the favorite part, watching the groom see the bride for the first time when she's decked out in her nines is the best part. I also love the toasts and first dance!
