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!
