Hitched: The Reception Part 1

Its safe to say I've been a little neglectful in my wedding recaps. My last recap was ummm....five months ago! With our first anniversary just two weeks away, I'm feeling inspired to be more on top of these things. I may even order my wedding album next week. In my last Hitched post, I shared our reception decor. Today, I want to share some photos of our reception.
First look at the ballroom. I'm in awe of how gorgeous it is. Corey is seeing dollar signs. 

Miss Mia and her coloring book.

My parents' intro

We had the best bridal party.

Our first dance was to Ben Harper's Forever

My dad gave the welcome and shared a blessing

Our salad was spinach, toasted pecans, cornbread croutons, and the most delicious bourbon peach vinaigrette.

Mr. and Mrs.!

Love is Sweet

Sweet, sweet moment. We had the best photographers ever. 

Best wedding food ever, although I might be biased.

My mom, grandmother, two aunts, and uncle.

Cutting the cake gave me such anxiety. Ha! It was just so pretty. 

We had a marble layer, a pink red velvet cake layer, and a vanilla layer with fresh strawberry filling. Unfortunately, the anniversary tier fell victim to Hurricane Sandy. 

Cortenay. The most amazing wedding planner who kept me sane and organized and who truly made the day perfect. Charlotte brides-to-be - hire her!!

It really was a perfect day. I love looking at pictures and it never gets old. I can't believe this was almost a year ago - I love my husband more and more every day.
