Happy Friday eve! Today’s installment of wedding week is our reception. It was so wonderful to have so many people we love in one room. The reception began with a fun entrance by the bridal party and our first dance as husband & wife to You Are the Best Thing. It was so special to dance to that song because when Dave & I first started dating, he took me to Ray LaMontagne’s concert in Pittsburgh and I was dying to hear that song. Unfortunately, that night, he never played it but Dave took me back to his house and we danced to it in his room before meeting other friends out that night. It was very sweet and from then, it’s been our song.
We wanted to incorporate fun details of our relationship, like these monkeys from the bar where we first met. It was awesome to see everyone have them on their drinks, coat pockets, etc by the end of the night!
