Wedding Recap 5: The Reception

I know-I’m the world’s worst procrastinator! It’s been a really busy summer but I want to finish these wedding recaps! (Even though I’ve been married for 5 months-ha!)
After the ceremony, we split off to take photos of Zach and me as well as us with our families and the wedding party while the guests enjoyed cocktail hour.
We chose two drinks to have as our signature drinks and also served beer and Mississippi muscadine wine. The bride’s drink was a strawberry mojito and the groom’s drink was Captain and Coke!
The whole wedding party! From right, Jim, Danielle, Jonathon, Emily, Scott, Amanda, Shawn, Chelsea, me, Zach, Caitlin, Dan, Mary Catherine, Kevin, Brianna, and Andy! We had the funniest wedding party-they kept the party going all weekend and we all had so much fun!Reception1-022

Of course I had to say bye to my dad post-wedding! The poor guy had the Noro virus and was suffering the whole day. What a trooper!Reception2-198 
After our wedding everyone went to a local favorite restaurant, Red’s Ice House, and continued the party there! The place wasn’t busy, so we had the band and a whole section of the restaurant to ourselves! We had SUCH a blast! Our reception ended at 9 and we wound up staying at Red’s past midnight. Zach and I walked to our hotel which was right down the street and everyone was honking and yelling to us since we were in our wedding gear! :) We were so fortunate that we had so many people who mean so much to us travel for our wedding. We had such an amazing, memorable wedding!

Wedding Recap 4: The Ceremony

From downtown, we traveled to the ceremony and reception site, the Pavilion at Patriot’s Point. Since we had separate limos, the girls went inside the clubhouse at the golf club to wait for the ceremony to begin, while the guys waited in the reception area. Thankfully we only had about 25 minutes before the ceremony! I was too excited to wait any longer!
Our ceremony decor was pink and cheerful!
Pink and champagne ribbons on all the chairs, large flowers for the reserved rows, flower petals lining the aisle…
Signs leading the way to the aisle that had vows on them, such as “To have and to hold”, “In sickness and in health”, with the last sign before the aisle saying “Here comes the bride”.
I also made the paper flower garland that was strung between the trees!
My dad made 3 foot A&Z signs for us that we had in the ceremony and reception areas!
Before we knew it, it was time to walk down the aisle!
Here go the guys!
And the girls!
I love how you can see Fort Sumter, the decor of the ceremony, Caitlin, and the groomsmen in this photo.Ceremony-071 
Here comes the bride!


I loved our vows. We started with the traditional vows the pastor provided us and changed it around to make it more “us”. We both felt it had a lot about our personalities and also our relationship in the vows and the guests both laughed and thought they were sweet at the same time.

My aunt Mary Kate read a poem that Zach wrote during the ceremony as well!
Before I knew it, we were exchanging rings!

We are husband and wife!
Clearly I was very excited about this!
Mr. and Mrs. Zachary Wynne!
After the ceremony, we made it official and signed our marriage license! Zach’s face in this picture is HILARIOUS!

Time to celebrate!!
