Our Best Day Ever | The Reception

 Bride and Groom Wedding Toasts

It's crazy to think but 2017 is coming to an end. I was reflecting on this amazing, whirlwind, best year of my life and realized I never shared our reception with all of you! Marriage is at the very top of the list of what I'm most grateful for this year. I'm so lucky to leave 2017 with a husband who leads us in our faith, loves me well and chooses to be my teammate every day. Christmas Eve will mark 3 months of marriage and every day it is my greatest privilege and honor to be Kurt's wife. So as the year comes to a close, I thought it would be appropriate to share one last post from our best day ever. 

My mom deserves most of the credit for how stunning our reception space turned out. I had the best time planning all the little details with her and those will be moments I'll cherish forever. With the help of our wedding planner and florist, she made my vision come to life. From the greenery rings to the menus to the cake + donuts, every detail was more gorgeous than I could've imagined. Momma, we're forever grateful to you for all the time and hard work you put in behind the scenes to give us the most beautiful wedding and reception.

 Our wedding cake was one layer of carrot cake, one Italian cream cake and one Almond Joy-inspired... aka the cake of my dreams. I surprised Kurt at the reception with chocolate and peanut butter donuts as his grooms cake.

 We chose to use a leather bound Bible as our guest book and it was one of the most special pieces from our day. It's been so much fun to look through the verses and notes left by all of our favorite people.

 Our first dance was to 'Take the World' by Johnnyswim. We love all of their music and this song has been so special to us. Thanks to my sister's engagement gift to us, the lyrics hang on the wall in our condo too.

 And to no one's surprise, my sister crushed her toast. Best Maid of Honor in the game.

One week away from three months of marriage and every day is better than the last. Thankful for all of you who celebrated us, cheered us on, prayed for us and supported us this year. And of course, a special thanks to all of our people who made the trip to Seaside to celebrate on our wedding day as we became husband and wife.
