Show Us Your Life — Wedding Receptions and Honeymoons

When we planned our wedding, we made everything really simple by having the ceremony and reception at the same location, a historic courthouse. Since we had our ceremony inside (darn the hot temperature!), we had the food inside and tables outside for eating and mingling. It really worked out well.

There was cake. The wedding cake was *supposed* to be an almond cake, but somehow it got messed up and we had just a plain cake with buttercream icing. It was still good, though. Joe’s groom’s cake was a cookie cake because Joe absolutely loves cookie cakes.

And, of course, we did the bouquet and garter tosses. My niece, Amber, and Joe’s cousin, Ryan, caught them respectively.

And, there was the traditional Jewish chair dance. I was *terrified* while I was up there because it felt like my brothers were trying to tip me off my chair!

Our guests blew bubbles at us at the end of our reception.

We spent our honeymoon in Boston. There was one specific reason we chose that location.

Yes, we’re baseball-crazed people! We also toured a *lot* of the historical sites and went on a whale watching cruise. It was so much fun. We can’t wait to go back.

    Cady,

    We live 40 minutes outside of Boston! In fact I worked in Downtwon Boston for 8 years. I stopped when Nick was 5 months old, I felt the need to be closer to his daycare.

    We LOVE the Boston Red Sox too!

    I’m from Maine so the Boston Red Sox are the winning team! Love the big cookie! Great idea.
    My husband has been in my life for 20+ years and I still feel my heart skip a beat when he walks in the door.
    I pray that all you ladies have that feel for years to come.
    What a beautiful reception ~ cake and decorations.
    You both look so happy!
