Here's the third and final installment in my Rustic Southern Wedding series. This one is all about the reception. We had so much fun! Our awesome band, The Glow Band, was so great that Brian and Caroline signed them to play at their wedding. Family and friends, old and young were on the dance floor having a blast together. It was a great night.
From the bride and groom's first dance to the father daughter dance, this wedding was special. But the father daughter dance was just a little bit different. Malorie and David are both talented musicians and singers, so they came up with the idea of singing together. Mal always used to play Great Day to Be Alive by Travis Tritt on her iPod, so it seemed a natural choice:
Followed by the mother son dance...
There was great food provided by Atlanta's Finest Catering, and unlimited beverages:
There were the usual wedding activities:
There were lots of ecstatic parents and grandparents:
And happy siblings:
Many, many friends and family:
Even a family reunion of sorts—the groom's dad has five siblings and this was the first time they had all been together in years:
We had another surprise in addition to the father-daughter duet. Not only are Malorie and David musically talented, but so are several of our closest friends. So David arranged with our awesome band, Glow Band, to have his friends come up and play a couple of tunes. The crowd loved it:
And speaking of our band, at this wedding there was dancing. Lots and lots of DANCING. It was So. Much. Fun.
Around 10:45, the happy newlyweds said goodnight amidst sparkling laughter...
It was a beautiful end to an extraordinary evening and one that our family will never forget.
