The Day We've Been Waiting For, The Reception Part II

So, after all of the hooplah, it was time to have some fun! We didn't have a full band so there wasn't a whole lot of dancing. I wanted the guys to have something to do while the girls gossiped.

I found a basketball game online and had it set up on the wrap around porch at The Ridge. There was also a Colts mini bean bag toss game (ie. cornhole) and a poker table. I had also planned on a putting green but due to the hurricane it wasn't possible to set it up. I really would have loved to have had more time to play myself!

Some of Matt's best friends enjoying the basketball game:


Matt and I playing a quick game:



You would think that he would have let his new bride win! But OH NO- he is WAY TOO competitive for that!



At the poker table:



My baby sister Katherine ~ she does not have a great poker face!



I believe I said there wouldn't be a whole lot of dancing but I convinced my darling hubby that we HAD to have a first dance. Chad Hall played Lovin' in My Baby's Eyes...


My Dancin' Shoes:



Havin' a Good Time with my girls:




We were so thrilled to have so many friends brave the storm.

LC, Me and JH:

My Sweet Sister Mary Alise and our new brother-in-law Michael:


In addition to all of the games, I thought it would be fun to have a "photo booth". I had a Polaroid camera (graciously on loan from The Law Offices of JTK and Associates) and a box of dress up items (the cigarettes are NOT real but they did have "smoke").


KT Pickle, me and WC:


Looks like TROUBLE!




My mom's girls REALLY enjoyed Dress Up!



One of my favorite moments (even though it seems a lot of people don't do it anymore, it is kind of expected around here)- Note the UK garter- GO CATS!


Matt did SUCH a GREAT JOB!


Leigh Kennedy caught the garter and guess what...

he JUST GOT ENGAGED!

Note his beautiful fiance Stephanie in the black and white to the right:



I think I just wanted to toss the bouquet so that I could have Jackie Gaut make me one to toss!



And then it was time to go.





Off to my surprise honeymoon!






Once again kudos to Kim Box Photography!
