Happy Friday!! We made it! Do you guys have lots of fun plans for the weekend? We have a couple plans, but nothing crazy so I am hoping to get in lots of walks with the pups and some boat time too!
So today is the last of my wedding recaps… I saved the best for last! 😉
Since we had our ceremony at my in-laws’ house, we decided a downtown reception would be perfect! We had shuttles bus our guests from the different locations. Our reception took place at the Skyline Club in downtown Indianapolis. It has tons of windows with a beautiful view of the skyline at night and it was just big enough for our guests, but not too big where the guests are too spread out.
My two siblings being introduced. Such cuties.
We went straight to cutting the cake after we were introduced so we didn’t have to stop the party later to do it. I wanted a very simple, elegant cake and my husband and mom chose all the flavors. 🙂 The two champagne glasses below were the ones my in-laws used at their wedding so it was pretty special that we got to use them too.
We went straight into the speeches and eating. We chose to do a buffet because I didn’t want the usual plated dinner. We had tons of options and the food was really delicious!
My dad and brother gave sweet speeches and my sister (the maid of honor) and Jon’s brother (best man) gave beautiful speeches too.
Next were the traditional dances. Jon and I chose Brett Eldredge’s song “Mean to Me” for our first dance. We both loved it when we first heard it and knew it was the one.
My dad and I danced to “I Loved Her First” by Heartland. It was such a special moment and I may have shed a few tears. 😉
Jon’s mom is a huge Beetles fan so their first dance was a Beetles song. 🙂
Jon and I share a huge love of live music so when we got engaged one of the first things we decided on was that we were going to have a band instead of a dj. The band made our night so fun and the dance floor was full all night!
The had us singing all night.
And some more singing… 🙂
We did the traditional bouquet toss.
Us with my husband’s high school friends.
All of my dad’s friends from law school joined and his friend from work. So fun!
The neighborhood girls. 🙂
We had such a blast at our reception and are so thankful for all our friends and family that traveled so far to be with us on our special day. One year down 100 more to go. 🙂
Thanks for all the love on my wedding recaps, it was so fun reminiscing this special day. I hope you all have the best weekend!!
