We loved our reception!
From the time we got engaged, to the day we got married I worked my tail off. Every lunch break and straight from work I was running errands and trying to make our wedding unique and us.
Russ is VERY outdoorsy, where I love cutesy, modern things.
For our wedding I tried to mix both of our personalities. I was SO nervous about our wedding. I had this vision in my head of exactly how I wanted it to turn out, but at the same time I was scared that everything wouldnt come together. Luckily, I was very happy with how it turned out.
After we got married, we had a great luncheon thrown my Russ's parents. It was perfect! It fit Russ to a "T". Russ loves meat, potatoes and hunting. His parents threw us a great luncheon at Texas Roadhouse. The food was great, the company was great...it was perfect. Both of our parents said a little something, and it was very touching and sweet. I LOVE the mango creme brulee from Zupas, so Russ's mom surprised me and had it brought it for me and all our guest after lunch. I thought it was incredible thoughtful besides being delicious.
From there, we went straight to the reception center to set up.
I got back in my dress and my niece Oakley loved to watch me get ready.

Our cake and throw away bouquet!
Our center pieces...
I loved this one because it looked like both Russ and I. It had the tree for Russ, and the crystals for me.
Russ and I went over to trace each others silhouettes and paint them on
Its hard to see in this picture, but here is the final product, in action!
BIG thanks to my great friend Kailey for helping me. She came over to my house 2 days before the wedding and saw the letters werent finished. She took them home and finished them and saved me! Thanks Kailey, you did a fantastic job!
We had this cute sign with a glass bowl with cards in our wedding colors for people to sign the card and throw in the glass bowl. I liked how it turned out! We loved reading through all the cards, and now we will just glue them into a book.
I especially love this picture of Russ in the line.
Chocholate covered pretzels.
Yellow french almond macaroons, white chocolate covered strawberries..and other delicious treats.
I threatened Russ with his life if he threw cake in my face. He listened!
My cute friends made sure the bouquet slowly crowd surfed into her hands.
I was still finding little balloons in my car weeks after
Now...off to the Virgin Islands!!
