Wedding Recap: Receiving Line and Limo

Note:  All of the pictures with watermarks are taken by our photographer, Nathan Peel.

After the ceremony, we decided to have a receiving line.  I figured it was a quick way to see everyone and thank them for coming and still have the entire reception to do whatever I wanted.  Our church has a beautiful garden (and it was a gorgeous day), so we did it out there.

We then took some formal pictures inside and hit the road in our limo!! 




Champagne was had by a few


And Matt had a Snickers.  He wasn’t feeling so great, so he was hungry.  My bridesmaid, Brooke, said “I have a Snicker’s bar!” Matt, being the gentleman that he is, at first turned down the Snickers.  This prompted his best man to declare, “That is the first time that he has ever turned down chocolate!”  Finally he decided to take her up on the offer.  Mmmmm . . . . . tasty.

Wedding Recap: Get me to the church on time

Note:  Most of these pictures are taken by our photographer, Nathan Peel.

After getting our hair and makeup done at the hotel, we hopped in a limo and headed to the church.


Upon arriving at the church, I was greeted by my handbell players, who called out “How much?”  It was a big joke from our days at Purdue, and was just perfect!  I cracked up!

We all went to the parlor to finish getting dressed.  I had decided to get dressed at the church, because I was determined to NOT sit down in my dress prior to walking down the aisle.  My wedding planner, Julie, helped me to get dressed.  The only thing that I wore under my dress was my underwear.  I put on my dress feet first, and yup, I totally mooned Julie.  She laughed!

No pictures of me half naked, but here I am ready to have my mom zip me up.

Extra hands to zip.

I think my mom looks kind of shifty in this picture.

Now to put on a few touches.  My earrings from Roxy’s Jewelry.0013_20110521 Anne and Matt wedding copy0017_20110521 Anne and Matt wedding copy

and fixing my hair.  It didn’t want to stay pinned in.

My Grandmother helped me with my pearls.  She gave them to me.  She gave “add-a-pearl” necklaces to all of her granddaughters.  Mine started with about 8 pearls and is now a full 18” stand of pearls.

And finally the veil.  My mom made my veil with tulle and ribbon.  So much more cost effective than those ridiculously priced veils at the bridal salons.

Earlier that day, I meant to go to the ATM and get money for the honorarium to give to the minister.  Actually I meant to go much earlier that week, but it just never got done.  So my mom sent my brother to get some money.  Here he is delivering the money.  If you knew my brother you could imagine what he saying to my mom right now.  He can be kind of self-involved and douchy goofy.

Oh, Tom!

And now my florist, Courtenay Lambert, arrived with the flowers!  She had gotten lost somewhere.

That meant it was time to get some pictures taken before the Matt and his people arrived.  They were on their way in the limo . . .
