So, if I was a *good* wedding blogger, I would show you pictures of all the lovely and unique details from our wedding. Truth is, our wedding wasn’t terribly unique, creative, or really anything out of the ordinary. I’ll show you some “detail shots” too, but for now, I just want to show you my favorite moments from the wedding. I’ll spare you a break down of “these are the toasts…this is t
he cake cutting.”
The inspiration for this is the wonderful website Moment Junkie. This website features fabulously hilarious and moving pictures from weddings. Not “these are the shoes I bought on etsy perched quaintly on a white picket fence” shots.
So here are our moments.
Our reception was at my parent’s house. The post-ceremony pictures wrapped up pretty quickly, and so we just went home. We got there about an hour before the reception started. I cannot recommend this enough. No worrying about holding up our guests, just hanging out. We greeted everyone as they got there and had plenty of time to talk to people as they arrived. This was my favorite memory of the day – standing on the porch, drinking a cup of coffee, feeling the breeze. Just happy.
My Grandpa took a nap inside.
John’s grandpas took a seat to watch the festivities.
My parents have a big backyard, so we put out a bucket of toys – frisbee, wiffle ball, bocce. Huge hit.
Rounding the bases.
My cousins changed into play clothes. I love this picture – she just looks so happy.
My husband played catch with our cross bearer, my cousin.
My aunt made our wedding cake. She’s putting on the final touches here.
