The Dinner & Par-tay!

Yesterday was our 3-year wedding anniversary. I shared photos of both Kyle and I getting ready and of our ceremony. Today comes the fun part – the dinner and dance photos! Everyone likes a good party, right?

And, because I love sharing wedding photos with you/can’t narrow down my favorites, I’m also going to post some A LOT of our outside portraits post-ceremony but pre-dinner :)





At this point in our photo shoot, a guy in a tiny speedo/thong ran by us on the path across the street. He was seriously wearing NOTHING and we all obviously thought it was hilarious ;)







The traditional “taxi cab” pose with a squad car instead :)


Okay, NOW we’re onto the reception. Our reception was held in the City Hall of Minneapolis. I know… When I told most people we got married in the City Hall, I get a very strange look. Once you see the photos, you’ll understand why we selected this venue.



Again, Kyle is thinking he’s President Obama ;)


Maybe it’s a BFF thing… Nick – Kyle’s Best Man – was doing the President wave too!


Cake time! There was NO smashing cake into my face… I let Kyle know that cake on my expensive make-up would be cause for an immediate annulment so he played nice ;)


Dinner time – Cheese Tortellini for her and Chicken Marsala for him plus a side of spanikopita and other hors d’oeuvres from our cocktail hour to share. Oh, and there was wine… Lots of wine!





Have I convinced you that the Minneapolis City Hall is an amazing venue? Yes? Okay, good :)






Showin’ off my shoes!


I have this photo on my desk at work. It is one of my all-time favorites of us!


So, that was our big day! It was the best day of our lives and I had so much fun reliving our wedding day through these photos.

Where did you have or where do you want to have your wedding reception?
