Ahhhh, the final chapter of the wedding!
The reception is always an interesting part of the day for me. My job at the wedding slows down for a bit (no one wants photos of themselves eating) and instead I get to just observe and watch the interactions and see ALL these people who have come together to watch the union of this couple. All the most important people in their lives are here in one place.. Suddenly a five hour reception doesn't sound long enough at all! No wonder so many receptions lead to after parties or have no cut of time.
This reception was absolutely stunning. I love the long banquet tables and the head table (that INCLUDES the dates of the bridal party). Everything was set up so wonderfully and everyone there had such a great time -- especially the kids when it came to dancing!
