Let me just say:
the reception was a photographer's nightmare.
I didn't bring my own camera,
figuring that Roselle would do a much better job of capturing images than I could.
And she did, but she didn't necessarily get pictures of all the stuff I would have.
Like my favorite flower arrangement in the old metal water pitcher...
Also - I think it looked so much prettier than the photos show.
In person, the eye was drawn to the pretty stuff;
in the photos - the stains on the carpet and the cords and such jump out at ya.
Over all, though, what I saw looking through the pictures,
was people having a rockin' good time.
|we had to get creative with the flowers - they didn't go nearly as far as I'd planned|
|that tub - for the silverware ~ it had little trick-or-treaters on it; I just covered it with double sided tape and glitter :-)|
| agh - this picture of that picture does not do it justice. When Roselle saw it, she got chills |
and said she couldn't believe it was one that she'd taken. Adding glitter made it amazing! you'll have to trust me on it ;-)
|Roselle made this (and the groom's cake) as her ridiculously generous contribution to the potluck.|
I'm telling you - that woman sure made my kids feel loved!
|My talented friend, Amy, with some help from another crazy talented friend, |
made this awesome photo prop as a gift to Tony and Kacy. It was sooo much better than I could have imagined!
|the kids table looked a little more Mardi Gras-ish than I would have preferred. still, I think they liked having it :-)|
|my Eva. always serving. She loves me so!|
|youngest and oldest. How I love them. And all of the others in between.|
|When I presented the idea of a dance area to Tyler, there were landscape timbers and cinder blocks involved.|
isn't he amazing?! Thanks, Love, for going along with my crazy ideas. And making them (and me) so much better.
|three words - double sided tape|
Many thanks to everyone who pitched in to make this a memorable evening for Tony & Kacy.
and everyone else :-)
