After our ceremony, we gathered up our wedding party and Laurie took some amazing pictures! The Blackthorne Inn‘s bridge and gazebo were the perfect spots to capture some of our best wedding day shots. Meanwhile, our guests were enjoying live Celtic music, cocktails and yummy hors d’oeuvres!
After all of our hard work it was incredible to see everything come together! Guests were welcomed with navy and green koozies, which had seating tags for them.
I designed and created all of the printed items, including the ceremony programs, table signs and menus, which had a “Thank You” message to our guests on the back. I was so happy with how they all came out!
After our grand entrance and first dance, we made sure to eat… and our food was so delicious! My Man of Honor, my brother, gave a sweet toast that brought me to tears. And Shaun’s sister, his Best Woman, included her husband and daughter (our Junior Bridesmaid) in a fun blues song toasting us. Both were wonderful!
The (perfect!) evening continued as Shaun danced with his mom and me with my dad. We (Dad and I) surprised everyone by breaking into “Sweet Caroline” in the middle of our dance. It definitely started the party! When not dancing, our guests signed our Red Sox and Nationals shirts (a nod at how we met- at a Sox/Nats game).
As the celebration went on, our guests enjoyed the Cigar Bar and Dessert Bar!
06-02-2012 was the most amazing day of our lives… and we wouldn’t change one thing!
