"A wedding reception is a party held after the completion of a marriage ceremony. It is held as hospitality for those who have attended the wedding, hence the name reception: the couple receives society, in the form of family and friends, for the first time as a married couple."
Based on this definition, the "Reception" for the the guests at Brad and Chandler's wedding was a huge success.
But, I will let you be the judge also.
May I just say here, that the brides dress was so perfect for her. I can't imagine her in anything else.
She worked her way through college as a bridal consultant at David's Bridal in College Station and the Bridal Boutique in Lewisville, Tx, so she had her pick of styles.
She chose well!
Being able to witness the joy and excitement on their faces as the couple is introduced and share their first dance as husband and wife is always so much fun if not a bit emotional for a grandmother.
But someone did offer to provide proof that I was there. And I got to pose with my beautiful Cassidy, the Maid of Honor. I loved the simplicity and beauty of their dresses.
One of the highlights for the women at a reception is getting a close-up of the rings.
I learned just yesterday from the groom's grandmother that Brad designed the rings for Chandler. He knows her so well. She was thrilled to show them off.
The Bride's 8 year old sister. Her mother is trusting the next wedding won't be any time soon.
