Our Reception

Our reception was a blast! I cannot wait to see our wedding video, to relive it! And, I think everyone had a great time too. As everyone warned me, the night flew by. But, I do admit, by the time it was over, I was ready for some R&R. My feet were killing me. I don't think I've ever danced so much in one night... Everything was wonderful!

I think besides stating our vows, I was most nervous over the first dance. I like to dance, but I wouldn't consider myself that great. Yeah sure, I can dance when there's a crowd, or if it's fast, and for fun. But, slow dancing, in front of 200 people is quite a different story. And, we had some turns and twirls in our dance, to top it all off. We had practiced our dance too. I know that I 'messed' up during the dance, but I don't know if it was noticeable to others. Anyhow, we (or me) opted to not do the turns the second time around.

The toasts were all special, and all hilarious in each way. My sister was so nervous, yet she did great. Her toast was perfect - emotional, funny, and full of memories. Jeremy had the room rolling on the floor with laughter. And, his too, was emotional for Bob. Jo's, of course was great too! The key joke was awesome; especially with Bonnie Burton!

The cake cutting was a lot of fun too. We never did get around to discussing what we would do with the cake, meaning, if we were going to smother it all over our faces or not. With that being said, I totally smothered cake all over Bob! And, then I licked it off his face - ha ha! Just one lick though!

The tossing of the bouquet was pretty funny. I had two surprises up my sleeve. The first was my garter. My sister had the idea of getting a Florida Gator garter. Bob was surprised when he pulled it off my leg. We pulled the ol' switcharoo, and kept the Gator garter. I instead, handed him another garter to throw. Oh, and poor Bob! I made him work to get that garter off my leg. My other surprise was for my sister. I had planned beforehand to "toss" my bouquet to her. But, I didn't actually toss it, I ran it over to her, and gave it to her. Why not? She's next in line in the Lee household! Anyhow, Bob and I had concocted a plan to make sure Kathy caught the bouquet, and Phil caught the garter. Phil was very close to catching it, but instead, Bob's cousin, Michael, swept in for it. Luckily, he was willing to give it to Phil.

Overall, the reception was full of fun memories for us. I hope it was the same for everyone else too! I have attached one of my favorite pictures. It's a picture of us leaving Heathrow, at the end of the night. We look so happy, and I just loved all the bubbles. We both felt like the line of our family and friends was never-ending. It was the best way to end a perfect day.
