wedding + reception

Friday, November 11, 2011

here is the final post on jenny’s wedding (the reason for my october homecoming).
42
jenny’s sister, sally, wins the ‘best bridesmaid hair’ award, don’t you think?
21
and while we’re giving out awards, i think jenny deserves a little something for choosing cute bridesmaids dresses that were super affordable, too (or am i the only one who minds when brides expect you to spend $300+ on a dress you’ll never wear again?).
24
jenny’s mom found her mother-of-the-bride dress on etsy.  isn’t it lovely?
32
being a bridesmaid in jenny (aka the most relaxed, laidback bride who ever lived) and eric’s wedding was an absolute privilege.
40
and celebrating their marriage at the historic round barn in arcadia was a treat, too.  while the dinner and cake were delicious (especially served with raw milk provided by a local farmer/family friend), the highlight of the reception was dancing to beyonce’s ‘love on top’ with the wedding party.48
did you know that oklahoma’s historic round barn (located on route 66) was built in 1898?  if you’ve ever seen elizabethtown, then you’ve seen the barn.  i think it’s a pretty great venue for wedding receptions.
47
it was definitely one of my favorite weddings/receptions that i’ve been to yet. 
thanks again, jenny & eric!

Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks

I love those bridesmaids dresses...I keep telling my oldest sister that when she gets married in a couple years to pick out cute, cheap bridesmaid dresses that will look really good on me, haha. And wowza, that barn looks really cool.

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog the other day. ♥

Thrilled to see these reception photos. I also attended a grand wedding reception party on last weekend. It was hosted at prettiest San Francisco venues. Really it turned out to be a blasting weekend for me and my fiancé!
