We started out our reception by being introduced as the new Mr. and Mrs.
We then moved onto some toasts about embarrassing sibling stories...thanks to my brother.
Toasts about how Match.com is the perfect place for bald men to meet their future wives...thanks to Rick's best friend Jeff, who is getting married in January to a lovely lady he also met on Match.
Toasts from long-time friends...thanks to my friend Lisa who has been there with me through so much over the years, and was one of my first friends to meet Rick.
To toasts about having babies...thanks Dad!
We then went on to cutting our beautiful cake (which I will share more details on in a future post)
And then on to our first dance.
I love this photo of my nephew taking a video of our first dance. I believe he is using my Mom's phone and I haven't had a chance to check to see if there really is a video still on her phone.
Then there was the traditional father-daughter dance...
...and the mother-groom dance.
Then things started to get really fun.
We started with a little Single ladies.
My good friend Amy, also one of my long-time friends who was a huge help with helping me find my wedding dress and attended each of my fittings, caught the bouquet. She now needs to hurry up and get engaged so I can help her find the perfect dress!
Then came the boutonniere toss.
I'll be honest I don't remember much of what happened at this point. But was extremely surprised and laughed hysterically when I realized how my nephew managed to catch the boutonniere.
That kid is something, let me tell you...ha!
