For today's Show Us Your Life from Kelly's Korner, we're sharing our wedding reception and honeymoon pictures!
***Let me go back a minute and say that I live in a small town. So my wedding was by no means elaborate! We kept it simple, and while I do love big and fancy weddings, that's just not me. So it all works out...simple wedding in a small town for a simple girl:)
We had our reception at a place in our downtown called Club Cola. As you can see on the sign, it is a place for receptions...not like a night club or anything! That would be quite frowned upon in our little neck of the woods:)
A very close friend of our family owns this place, and he and his son also collect antique vending and soda machines...the museum they have for their huge collection is located in the same building as the banquet hall. They even have a few of the working machines inside the banquet hall. They had them stocked for us and provided the dimes too! So we got to drink soda at the wedding out of the old-fashioned glass bottles:)
The building used to be an old mill that they had converted. So everything is exposed...brickwork and ductwork, and the original wood floors were restored as well. Its a very neat place, and it was cool to have our reception in a place with such history from our little town:)
Here you can see one of our table settings...birdcages (and some had lanterns) with candles and leaves.
Here is our food table. My mom made the centerpiece! It is GORGEOUS! She still uses it at her home in the fall...lucky her!
Now onto our honeymoon!
We actually took two honeymoons....a short weekend at the beach right after our wedding (can't find any pictures!), and then our big honeymoon to Disney World the week before Christmas.
Yes, I wore wedding ears. And while you may laugh, we got TONS of free stuff! Like a $60 snow-globe for my niece for Christmas...FREE! And lots of free Fast Passes and such. Sometimes, it pays to look silly:)
Took some pictures with some characters..
And enjoyed all of the pretty Christmas decorations throughout Disney:)
We had an amazing time! But I won't bore you with the 500+ pictures I took that week:)
I know a lot of people would rather go to someplace tropical or exotic or at least less crowded than Disney World. But Disney just fits me and Jimmy...we're just giant kids, and had more fun and made more memories in that week than we probably would have in a month at Hawaii! And we can't wait to take Noah..and are really hoping to next year some time!
And afterall...what's more of a fairy tale than having Snow White herself (in the middle of the Spectromagic Parade, no less!) wish you congratulations on being newlyweds:)
