Wedding Recap: The Reception

Good afternoon friends!  This post will be the last of my wedding recaps.  Be sure to check out the rehearsal dinner and ceremony recaps!

After our beach ceremony, guests headed to Lumina Hall for a cocktail hour.  While the cocktail hour was going on the wedding party had fun getting pictures at the beach!

We walked across the street and got some pictures on an old dock overlooking the sound.


After taking TONS of pictures the wedding party headed to the reception to join the rest of our guests.  You could find your name card attached to a white starfish.  Megan and I  filled old drawers with sand and placed the name cards in the sand.

The wedding couldn’t be complete without pictures of LJ and I at the beach when we were younger.  If you look closely you can see our very loved stuffed animals.

Some centerpieces were glass hurricanes with candles and surrounding seashells.  Others were tall vases with curly willow branches and white orchids.

My custom table numbers turned out perfect!  (Check out my DIY wedding table numbers)

My mom and florist (June) created the centerpiece at the head table as a surprise.  I absolutely loved the incorporation of my mom’s hand made pottery, fruits and vegetables.  I am a dietitian after all!!!
