Ultimate Wedding Week: The Reception!



 I am so excited that today's installment of The Ultimate Wedding Week is THE RECEPTION! Today I'm linking up with Natasha to talk about everyone's favorite part about a wedding, the party
As I mentioned before, our theme was modern typography, so we knew we wanted the colors to be bright and bold. We chose purple linens that matched the girls' dresses, with white napkins. I designed green menu cards that were placed in the napkins for a pop of color.

We hired a coffee barista to do lots of fun drinks since everyone in my family loves coffee (except for me!) We also had Ritas Ice come and serve our guest three of our favorite flavors. (Jordan's extended family owns a water ice branch in NJ, and he worked there growing up which fueled his love for water ice in the first place!) We also rented a photo booth which was a huge hit! I'll post pics of these items in the details part of this link up for sure!

We had a DJ who did an amazing job at getting everyone out on the dance floor! Our bridal party walked in to "Dynamite" and we walked in to "Party Rock Anthem", which was a blast. Since my dad's side of the family is Italian we did a traditional Italian dance which most of my cousins have done at their weddings too. Those are the pic of us all in a circle holding hands, it was so much fun!

It was seriously the best night of our lives. We had such a great time and loved every second of it. Enjoy the party!


































I can't wait to post pics of the details from our big day, our photographer did a great job at capturing every aspect of our wedding from every angle! Also, I've decided I'm going to do a future post on our fabulous wedding videos. Our videographer was AMAZING and I can't even tell you how many times I've watched our videos :) 

Happy Wednesday!

Your reception looks like it was SO. MUCH. FUN.
And you were the prettiest bride EVER!

What a bummer that blogger is being weird and wouldn't save your post :( Nothing like that has ever happened to me. I'd email the blogger and ask them what's up.
