Wedding photos (reception)

The reception was perfect! Almost no mix-ups, except we didn't have champagne in our glasses when the toast was done. Oh well we toasted with what we had. I loved the way the hall turned out and can't wait to get my quilt from my mom that she's gonna make with all the bunting we made! It was a lovely lovely evening that went by way too fast!

Everything at the reception was handmade. The bunting, the cake and all the wooden words through out the hall. My backdrop and all the frames were re-done by me. My cake bunting and guest book, even the jam that was my wedding favor was handmade!

My sister Amy gave us the most beautiful speech. I am so thankful to have her as a sister and friend as you know already if you read my regularily. I cried and stood up to hug her more than once!
"Let me first say thank you for coming and sharing this special day with us. I am blessed to be given the opportunity to give a toast for my sister Val. She is a truly amazingly talented and beautiful person inside and out. I couldn't be happier that she found her match Valdo. I know that you two will have an adventurous and loving marriage for decades to come.
I never new Valdo before he dated my sister so I don't have horrible stories to tell about him. But what I can tell you is that he is perfect for my sister. He is thoughtful, caring, has a great sense of humor, and he truly respects my sister. We are happy to welcome you into our family. Now your Stuck with us.
Val, you make the most beautiful bride. Thank you for letting me be apart of this perfect day. We have had our share of memories and adventures together. 80's night with the girls, our origami stage, misbehaving in public, our letters back and forth with yours always ending in p.s. I LOVE DONKEYS! And then there were some not so happy moments like the time we broke up and decided to see other people. Finally two minutes later after begging and begging, she took me back. I thought I had lost you.Val, you are an amazing person. I have never thought of you as a step sister but as my own sister and best friend. And I am thankful that we were able to be apart of each others lives.
To the bride and groom, may you love grow stronger with time. May you have many years and many babies together. And may you never forget why you fell in love. Felicidades y te quiero. Congratulations and I love you."

My wedding was exactly what I wanted! It was perfect! Except for the few people missing who we really wanted there, nothing else went wrong! It was a magical day and I will remember and cherish the special moments from that day forever! Thank you all for sharing this whole year of planning with me and for being so excited to see photos! It has been a pleasure to share my wedding here with you all!
