Another Wedding Wednesday! I thought I’d share some of the more fun photos from our reception today, because let’s be honest… they’re my favorites! Peter and I quickly realized on our first date that we both LOVE to dance. Now, I didn’t say we’re good at it… but we love it! Luckily for us, our wedding guests seemed equally enthusiastic about the big dance party our reception turned into…
It was so much fun to see all our friends from different eras of our lives together, many for the first time, having a blast!
After much debate (it turns out that most of our favorite songs don’t lend themselves to slow dancing) our first dance was to Ray LaMontagne’s You Are The Best Thing.
My friend/bridesmaid Katie is the undisputed limbo champ… at every party!
All our flower girls and ring bearer wanted to do all night was dance, and only the oldest one lasted long enough for the band to start. So sweet!
Shout out to our amazing band, Entourage. Not only were they extremely helpful with all the planning that goes into a wedding, but they set the perfect tone for the evening and got everybody on the dance floor!
My brother is the life of the party everywhere he goes…
My childhood best friend, Katy, and I both played the trombone in the middle school band, so as a surprise for Peter, and everybody else, we got up on stage and played the University of Michigan (our Alma Mater) fight song, Hail to the Victors, half way through the night.
I always have the hardest time keeping secrets from Peter (I’ve been known to give him Christmas/Birthday gifts weeks early because I can’t stand the suspense…) but he genuinely had NO idea about our trombone number. Mission accomplished!
My mom, and our amazing Priest, Fr. Jerry, cutting a rug.
Imaginary double dutch… clearly.
The band played All The Single Ladies while I tossed my bouquet…
One of my best friends from high school, Taylor, caught the bouquet and got engaged 2 weeks later. So much fun!
Dancing bridesmaids… and the back of Sam’s amazing hairdo!
The last song of the evening was Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing, which turned into a big sing-a-long… just as we’d hoped!
