Well ladies & gents, here it is. After I made you wait a full MONTH to see any photos from our reception, here they are! It took so long, because I was so busy with guests and running the party that I didn't even remember to take one single shot! My mom & grandma sort of became the impromptu reception photographers though, which meant that I had to wait for them to do whatever they were planning with them (which turned out to be a really nice set of prints in a photo album & digital CD).
I thought I'd organize them into two massive photo- dump style posts. Today's post will be the physical set up, and tomorrow's will show off the faces of the day- both people and animal:)
So without further ado, here is a photo tour of our reception set up in my Aunt's yard:
|We rented a tent to house the food & longer eating tables.|
|Family chatting before the event. Just to give you an idea of what the tables looked like.|
|Pool, to the tent, to the house- grey on the right in the background.|
|This is the "pool house" behind the pool. It's a GORGEOUS little sitting room where|
folks can sleep in the summer or change into their suits.
|Bench under grapevines- behind the pool too.|
|Hanging out during the party.|
|We put little family tables & smaller groupings of chairs throughout the yard so that people could |
choose where to eat & hang out.
|Group in the front yard.|
|The side of the house has a lovely porch with french doors. In the background you can see the volleyball net|
we set up. We also had badmitten equipment & toys & balls for kids out there.
|Next to the porch I set up the guest sign in, favors, and gift table.|
|Some of you may recognize the album & sign in book we ordered from Edi of Memories for Life.|
|Off a bit in the side yard, my Aunt built this tree house out of 100% salvaged materials (dumpster dive style!)|
|Right in front of the tree house, they have a fire pit. We spend the late night shift of the reception|
hanging here making smore's and chatting.
|And here I am cleaning up the day after. |
