Reception after party at the lambs

Well - we all had kids - so the after party came to our house. It was fun to visit - very hot - but fun to watch the kids play around in the backyard. Everyone hung out after the reception and it was fun to visit and just relax...well - as much as you can with 13 kids! Me with 5 week old Josie Ward. so tiny!

Reception at James at the Mill - all photos by Mike!

We had a big reception for Kelley and Gran at James at the Mill on Saturday July 31st. Since their wedding was a destination, this gave a chance for everyone to see the happy couple and to gether together and talk about the wedding! We had a slide show of the wedding, great food by the chefs at James at the Mill, two great cakes from Shelby Lynn's, a favor table by me, and a guest book and picture table that my mom decorated. Everything turned out so beautiful. It was a lot of fun to visit with everyone about the wedding. A big thanks to Phyllis for helping set up and big thanks to the Humphrey's for helping clean up! What a day what a day

Note - sorry they are in reverse order - I have to get better at this!!

Max - not his best behavior at the reception but boy did he have a blast!!

The Grooms cake - a golf theme

The brides cake - I loved it! The seashells were made from fondant. Shelby Lynn's always does the best job.

The favor table. I took this on as a project of mine. I definatley had help from Phyllis, Kelley, and mom, but I helped bring the idea together. We had everything blue, green and white. I loved it. It was sure a big hit with the kids - but I saw plenty of adults around it too!!
