I'm going to break the reception pictures into three posts even though there aren't a ton that I like enough to post. But here they are!
Isn't Amelia adorable? Such a carefree child!
My Mom and her brother dancing. This is a special picture for a lot of reasons. Mom has had a lot of health issues over the years and wasn't able to dance much at my brother's wedding (she was in a wheelchair at the time) and my Uncle beat a really advanced case of melanoma thanks to some amazing doctors in San Francisco. They were both here and dancing together. So cool.
Wish Mom was showing those teeth. Maybe she already knew I was mad at the photographer. Haha.
Oh someone asked about Mom's dress but I couldn't reply because their email address isn't linked. A bridal shop in Charlotte called Hayden Olivia put this ensemble together for her (they were excellent to work with by the way). The material is all from Coren Moore. Mom had them remake the jacket, they ordered her extra fabric and the seamstress made the skirt and the top bodice was made by Modern Trousseau out of Charleston. It's quite the custom outfit! But she looked good and most importantly felt special in it and by golly your daughter only gets married once!!!!
Father daughter bond!
Do you all do any special sorority traditions? We had a layer of red velvet in our wedding cake and then my girls sang Shades to me. It was special!
Then we always dance to We Are Family!
I'll be back with parts two and three soon!
