This greeted the couple and the guests outside the front door
Welcome Sweet Friends,
I finally have gotten the reception pictures put together
so you can have a lil look - see! Was very nice so
many of you were interested, so hope you will enjoy it.
Of Course, what is a reception without the
bride and groom, so here they are!!
Wed 2 weeks at this point..................
If you are new here or missed the wedding
pictures and would like to see them,
Remember when Fall came, I just decided to make my living room
into an all white room all of a sudden, well, I discovered the reason.
Now, I had no thoughts whatsoever, of having anything for the
reception in this room, but the Lord knew it would be the perfect
place for the guest book and card box.!
This was Scott and Megans cake top!
It is called "picture perfect".
(This was the photographers picture)
Becky from over at Junk to Joy came over to help the day
before and we put together this display on the top of my hope chest
then we took a white matelasse bedspread I wasn't using and
draped it over the sofa. The whole room looked so weddingly!
(like my made new word...............lol.)
This was the main table inside the house. Where we parents,
grandmother and aunts, and Scott and Megan sat. This was the
photographers picture too, but I had not put the rose petals on yet.
I really should have done it earlier, but sorta forgot!
I forgot a lot of things that day!! lol
with rose petals added!!
Here is a nice pic of Dee and I, you can see Megan and a lil of Jerry, and
Scott (but he had his head turned unfortunately). This will give you an idea
of how we had the food set up and what the plates looked like.
Believe me it was not easy finding tableware that looked elegant
for a Fall reception, cause everything was bright orange and
cornacopias and stuff like that.
If I could have figured a way to use regular plates I would have,
but just couldn't figure out what we would do with the mess
afterwards, since I have an open kitchen and their was a
dessert table in the kitchen.
Here we are enjoying the Celebration!!
Was so glad the photographer got a pic of this table, because we
completely forgot about it.
In the original wedding plans, Dee and Jerry were going
to have what they called a "Sweetheart" table, just for them.
So we decided to make one for them, and the picture above
and below are of that.
The champagne glasses were ours 41 years ago!
So thought that would be fun to have them use
I found those G coasters at Michael's in a lil pack of 6 for $1.00.
Thought they added a nice touch, and they have all sorts of letters.
The candle cups are gold mercury glass and looks o pretty
especially when the candle are lit. Notice the gold medallions
on the ribbon, they have double hearts embossed on them,
and the pearls on the ribbon, all found in the wedding dept. at
Michaels. The lil pearls were peel and press, so you just
stick them on. Loved the elegant touch it gave.
As you can see, Dee decided to change into something
more comfy since all the family pics were done,
and here they are enjoying their dinner..............
and drinking sparkling cider out of our glasses.
That was fun for me, I have to say!!
Fortunately, the photographer took this one.
Here is some recreated close ups below, cause I wanted
some pics and forgot to take any with the rose petals
on the table.
The tablecloth is yellow but you get the idea.
Below are what the other tables, that were on the porch
looked like, as well............................
These shots were all taken before I decided to embellish
them with the medallions, pearls and rose petals, they
looked pretty much same as the ones above, just
a more compact centerpc. to go with size of table.
But looked so much better afterwards, but no pics unfortunately,
The Photographer captured the prettiest part of this cake.
Remember I told you the cakes did not come out well.
This was not the one I planned on using as the wedding cake,
but Megan and I decided it was the better of the two................
looks pretty good here,
and here they are cutting the cake.............
the red piping on the cake looked terrible, think they must
have had a new decorator or something, didn't realize it looked
like that till we got it home. I knew the other one didn't look
like the picture, that is for sure, but thought, guess I can just
use this one. Have to say it was disappointing not to be able
to use the other one, because it had their initials on the top
made out of chocolate, with some other embellishments
and looked so modern, at least in the picture, that is!!
but oh well, gotta expect
something to go wrong, I guess!
The one in the picture was a yellow cake with straw-
berry filling and cream cheese frosting, and the other
was called a Mocha latte cake. They both were
absolutely delicious, Thank goodness!
and at least they had a cake to cut!! lol
I will leave you with some family photos.
Only included our families pictures as I don't want
to share the pics of others without permission.
From left to right: Scott, Megan, Dee, Jerry,
Jimmy, Nellie and Susan
With Rosie added in.
A candid of Me and Dee!
The photographer got a pic of Rosie in her dress clothes.
Now Dee didn't buy this outfit, it came with Rosie when
she got her from a family she knew.............Rosie also had
other clothes, beds, collars and leashes, she was......
and still is one pampered pouch, we only pamper her
with love tho!! lol
Thanks for your visit and thanks for enjoying
the reception with us, and thanks for your
patience with me in putting this post
together. Seems like it took forever!! lol
I wish you all a Wonderful, Delightful
and Grateful Thanksgiving Day!
May God Richly Bless You and Yours,
With Happily Every After Blessings,
