We had made it through the ceremony. Whoot Whoot! I was now married to Ryan, had not fainted, and no one had heard my growling stomach. All in all, quite a success :0)
I took a moment to relive everything with my bridesmaids. I love their faces in this picture.
Ryan and I then got to walk out into a sea of bubbles. Since the state park where we held our reception wouldn't allow sparklers, we decided bubbles were the next best thing. I think they made for some pretty pictures
I just like this picture because the back of my dress looks fluffy and it makes me think of icing and sweet and yummy things. No idea why.
Having an "oh my goodness we're married" kiss in a vintage car. But where are we going?
How about an Irish pub? Since our ceremony ended at 3, and our reception started at 5, we invited guests to stop by my family's restaurant which was conveniently exactly 1/2 way between the church and the reception site.
We decided to stop on in for a drinks (a Guinness for Ryan and a Blue Moon for me)
And some fun pictures :0)
We weren't sure how many guests (if any) would show up. We were surprised to see about 80 people there. It was so wonderful to catch up and share some laughs with everyone in an fun laid back environment. Plus this meant less running around for us at the reception.
There were lots of hugs and big smiles
Next up some beautiful bride and groom pics!
