The Final Wedding Reception
It has been a crazy week of getting everything ready for the reception.
On Wednesday, I dropped some things off at the Church so the work could begin.
On Thursday night, a few of my friends met at the Church and we got to work. Of course, that day i had to snow like crazy--I really didn't want to get out in the snow, but I DID.
Friday afternoon Allan arrived home and ran a couple of errands and then picked me up and away we went to run more. And then Heidi and Daniel arrived very late that night. There connection in Minneapolis was too tight and unfortunately their bags didn't arrive.
Allan and i were up bright and early on Saturday and headed out to see if we could pick up some of the last minute stuff. I had cheesecakes to make and
The cultural hall looked beautiful--Allan and I laughed that if we were doing the decorating on our own, their would have been just a tablecloth with a flower in a vase, but these were so beautiful.
I thought the favors were really cute. No, I didn't have them in a box--this is just how I transported them to the Church.
When I first talked to our friends, the B's, they had these INCREDIBLE ideas to use columns and do a photo display--WOW was I ever amazed. I was so grateful that Macy had done such an amazing job with the photos. Of course, it didn't hurt one big that Heidi and Daniel are just so cute ; )
I know Heidi and Daniel were VERY IMPRESSED
Lots of time and lots of work (a whole lot more for the B's.) So grateful for friends that were there to help And when it was time to clean up--OH MY GOODNESS. IT WAS INCREDIBLE. I wouldn't have thought the decorations could have come down that quickly.
The food was delicious. Sister D. did empanadas, spring rolls with sweet and sour sauce and stir fry vegetables with ride noodles--YUM, YUM, YUM.
It was fun having everyone have a chance to see the little video presentation with a slideshow of each of them and then the video of the Daddy-Daughter Dance ; )
the evening was lovely. So fun to see these three together again. They have shared many fun times together.
