Yesterday I told you that I was really good in narrowing down pictures for the ceremony post; well today is a different story. I had a really hard time choosing, so feel free to skim through these pictures. I did this mainly for my own memories.

Once we got to the country club for our reception, we headed out to take a few pictures on the golf course and the guests began to arrive.
As soon as guests began arriving, they immediately picked up their food (yummy bbq) and began to eat. (Remember, we did get married at 6 PM and it was a 20 minute drive to the reception.) After pictures, Dustin and I had a table set up in the office and we were able to eat by ourselves before the actual reception began. Best thing we did! We were able to make sure we ate uninterrupted and it was so fun to recap the day together and eat our first meal as husband and wife.
The band's set list
Our first dance was to Van Morrison's "Crazy Love"
After our first dance we immediately cut both of our cakes. I wanted guests to be able to eat cake while they watched the next two dances. I definitely thought about how I feel at weddings sometimes where I'm dying for cake but it seems like it takes forever until the bride and groom cut it haha!
My cake was strawberry and vanilla layers with a buttercream frosting died pale pink. And as you can tell, I didn't have a cake topper #notapriorityforme
Dustin's cake was wildlife-themed and it was red velvet with a buttercream, too.
My dad and I danced to Hall and Oates's "Sara Smile." He always sang that song to me when I was little to where I thought it was about me, so it was only fitting that we danced to it at my wedding!
Dustin and his mom danced to a George Strait song.
And the dance floor stayed full the rest of the night...
My sister breaking it down 😂
We also had a table set up where people could leave us marriage advice, and some of the things we read were hilarious! And others were very sweet
Some of my book club friends came to the wedding!
I love this picture so much! I have it framed on my bedside table 😍
