I woke up and completed a total upper body workout and 30 minutes on the spin bike. I love spin!!
Here is what my workout looked like:
I performed all the exercises 4×12 each!
The final recap of our wedding is here…enjoy!
After we stopped all the traffic, we walked across the street to The Worthington Inn, where our reception was held and our guests were waiting!
It was such a great place for our reception. It is this super historic building that used to be an Inn and the ballroom where our reception was held was added on in 1901. Love it! Not to mention, the food was outstanding.
We were introduced by Alex’s childhood friend, Brant, who has such a charismatic personality so he was perfect for this duty.
We made our rounds and said hi to just about everyone. One of the many great reasons about having a smaller wedding, you can greet everyone and enjoy their company.
We snapped photos with just about everyone and then we all sat down to hear speeches and eat!
Alex’s brother, Joe gave a speech that had us all laughing. “I learned that I don’t like roommates”…we love you Joe!
My sister, April got up there as well and nailed it!
Michael, my bro also did a wonderful job for not going up there prepared. I love these two!
Jessica finished off the speeches with a bang. She is absolutely amazing. We have known each other since freshman year of college and she was such a strong support system for me! I am so glad she could make it up for our wedding!
Uncle John delivered the prayer before we ate. A few months after our wedding, we went over to his house and he gave us this incredible Bible with a piece of paper in it with the prayer he gave written on it. Such a special gift!
I ate just about everything that was placed in front of me. Endless amounts of bread, salmon, prime rib, salad….lawd there was so much food. I have heard from so many brides that they didn’t even have time to eat the food they paid for at their wedding. Not this girl, I ate it all. Another reason a smaller wedding is such a joy!
After we ate, our photographers scooped us up to take us outside for some sunset pictures. I am really glad they did this because it was another moment of “us” time during our big day and we had fun!
It was so cold, so we made it quick and went back inside for the rest of the night.
Our coordinator had us go over to the cake table to cut the cake. Alex got me in the face that little terd!!
I ate four pieces.
We then went over to the dance floor for our first dance. I loved this moment. I am pretty sure we were just trying to make each other laugh the whole time.
We also had a piano player show up to play some live music. It was so unique having him there and our guests could request songs as well.
This little guy got the party started!
So much dancing and laughter! My most memorable moment of the night came at the end when everyone formed a circle around Alex and I and we just danced and made our way around to everyone to hug and kiss them and thank them for celebrating with us. This was not planned or scripted which made it so so cool!
We left the reception site and extended the night at a really neat bar down the road from our hotel. I am not sure what time we made it back to the hotel but when we got to our room there was a giant pizza waiting for Alex and I. Thanks Ben!!!! So clutch!
The weekend went by super fast but I am so happy with how everything turned out. It really was a perfect wedding and I can’t think of one flaw.
Thank you to everyone who made it so special! We love you all!!!
