The Luckiest: Cocktail Fifteen Minutes

We arrived at the Children's Museum with just enough time to enjoy a few appetizers, some whirlwind socializing, and, for me, a quick peek into the Grand Hall to see our reception set-up for the first time (Mr. Octo was more interested in having a gin and tonic with his buddies). Bridesmaid Katie put a cocktail in my hand within minutes of walking through the door, the reception looked fantastic, and I was in a great mood, finally relaxed and happy and ready to enjoy the party.

Bridesmaid Katie also took me aside to affix my "something borrowed"--Bridesmaid Erica's hair flower--to my hair, while I.....checked my cleavage (with concern), I guess?

Bridesmaid Clara's daughter discovered a fabulously interesting new toy: her mommy's bouquet.

Before I knew it, though, the event staff let me know it was time to pin down our bridal party and get ourselves ready, because everyone else was going to be seated. It was time for our big entrance!

  1. Hi! I just stumbled upon your blog today, as I am starting to plan my own Steel City wedding (while living in Virginia). I must say - your wedding looks like it was fabulous. I would love to hear your thoughts on reception venues (since you mentioned you looked at seven! I would love to hear which ones you visited, why you decided not to go with them, etc.) if you are willing to share: debernardinj@gmail.com

    Thanks, and best of luck with married life!
