The Reception

The evening started with the couples first dance.

Then we had buffet stations with:
Chicken Skewers
Mac & Cheese
Pulled Pork Sandwiches
Corn on the Cob
 Then it was time to cut the cake.  The cake was three different flavors.  (vanilla, chocolate and red velvet)  Yummy!  I will show you more about the cake on another post.

This is James.  He is a college friend of Matthews.  He made all the playlists for the entire day.  He did an awsome job!!!!  Thanks JAMES!

Then it was time to DANCE!

Chris and his girlfriend Kara did some swing dancing.  Notice the shoe change on Chris.  He had suede put on the bottom of his shoes just for swing dancing.  He and his girlfriend take lessons all the time.  They have great fun!

The bride and groom getting their groove on!

Some outside line dancing!

It's garter time!  I don't know the history behind this tradition, but it just makes me uncomfortable. 

Then Sarah tossed her bouquet.

Sarah's friend made this cute backdrop for people to pose for picutres.

We had props for people to do "photobooth" type picutres.  They had people do this for the their guest book.  I will show that to you later.

They played the "shoe game".  They were asked questions and they had to raise the shoe of the person who was the answer to that question.  I thnk they answered the same for all but one question.  I will find out the questions and do another post about the game.  I had never seen this done before at a wedding.  It was fun!

We ended the night with a sparkler send off.Well that was the wedding day.  It was over in a blink of an eye. The kids had fun and all their friends said it was great day.  Mission accomplished!  I may have a new career in party planning.  Hahahaha, NOT!  I want to thank all the people who helped and the Lord for guiding the day.
