A bit about our wedding

16 Sep

As you know, I’m really behind on posting here. Since Pete and I have been married for well over a year by now, it seems slightly indulgent to share our wedding story with you, but it was really fun, so if you weren’t there, you’ll definitely want to take notes in hopes that you too can throw a fab party for 200 of your closest friends one day. đŸ™‚

Here are some of the highlights:

Here’s what the ceremony room looked like before the show started. It looked so beautiful and got me in the mood to get hitched! Also, I loved our flowers. After dinner, this room was turned into a dance floor with our wedding band in front of the mantle. My biggest fear was that no one would dance, but the band kept the dance floor full until the wee hours of the morning!

Me and my grandma shortly before the ceremony. Love that classy lady!

Pete and I wrote our own vows, which wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. Hearing what Pete had to say made me fall in love with him even more. Just when we were all about to cry, I cracked a joke and made Pete laugh, which was one of the highlights from our wedding day. Our good friend, Adam, served as our officiant and it was awesome to be married by someone we know and love.

We did wedding pies from a local bakery instead of a traditional cake. Delicious!

We made all of our guests pose for a pic immediately after the ceremony. The bar was just outside the frame of this photo and it was really hard to get our guests focused when the alcohol so close they could smell it. We served Pisco Sours for a special cocktail which great for two reasons: 1) Pisco is from Peru, which is perfect as Pete is Peruvian and 2) They were delicious and very alcoholic.

In lieu of favors, we made a donation to PAWS, a local no-kill animal shelter.

Sheridan Road magazine ran a small announcement for our wedding, so you can find all our vendors here.

    As great as that day was, I’ve enjoyed each subsequent day with you just as much.
