Reception and Honeymoon

I've been to a few receptions in my day, and mine was one of my favorites.

We had the kind of fun that the best flowers, the nicest food, the prettiest dresses can't buy. That being said, we had great flowers, food, and dresses too. :)

(To see more pictures of my reception, visit my flowers post from last week!)

Our reception was held in an old antebellum mansion in Tuscaloosa.

In the entry, we had our guest book and pictures of our parents/grandparents from their weddings.

We also had an area for the food (filled with Christmas-y, southern food, like fried turkey, ham, and crab cakes)...

...the cakes...

...the tables...

...and dancing.

The dancing area probably got used the most. :)

As soon as we did a little bit of first dancing...

...and getting some cake smashed in our faces...

...we had an absolute blast!

We had my sorority's candlelight (it's an old southern tradition at weddings)

and we danced...a whole lot. :)

(This is one of the funniest pictures from the wedding - Noah's best friend decided to throw an unopened bag of birdseed at his face. We still laugh about this one!)


The honeymoon was so much fun. We relaxed...which was much needed after the experience of the wedding.

We went on a cruise (what else with us) to Cozumel, Beliza, Honduras, and Freeport.

Our room on the ship.

So there you have it...the longest show us your life ever. :)
