Me & My Husband {Ninth Edition}

Question 9: The reception: Where was it at? Show us some pictures! What day did you get married? {From this post}

Race and I were married on September 3, 2010. We did not have our reception until September 25, 2010. We did this so that we were able to have a little bit longer of a honeymoon before we had to head back to Flagstaff to get all moved into our apartment and get back to school. We were married at 9 AM, had a delicious brunch with family and friends that were at the temple, and then left for our honeymoon in Sedona, AZ. It was so nice to get to leave right after eating and start our honeymoon so early in the day. 

Our reception was two weeks later, the day after my brother got married. It was a crazy weekend for my family! Especially for my mom. She put so much work into my reception and it turned out beautifully. We had it in our front yard on our lawn/driveway. It was super laid back and Race and I were able to relax and enjoy talking to our guests. I am so grateful for all the service that went into putting my wedding reception together. People from my home ward, my family, and my parents all put so much work into making this a special night for Race and I. 

This was the detailing on the tables. My mom cut out all of these cute little hearts and found the adorable, perfect fabric.

My mom and aunts also made the cute fabric banner and hung up the pictures along our garage.

 Here is the whole thing put together with some of our guests. As you can see, we were just out on the street but it was perfect for us!

  1. Beautiful! I love the colors!

  2. Frist of all, your reception looks like it was absolutely adorably to die for!!!

    Secondly, if my math is right, you married your hubby 2 days before I met mine!

    So exciting! But seriously, I love the way you made a front (back?) yard look like a thousand dollar reception room! Kudos!

  3. Thank you ladies! And my mom did ALL of it. I was so lucky to have her help me so much. When I have girls get married I will have to actually plan the reception. Haha.
