To help me through the wedding planning process and the stress associated with it, I often reminded myself of the true meaning of the day. The simple fact that no matter what, Mack and I would become husband and wife, allowed me to minimize my stress over the irrelevant details! Once we officially tied the knot, we were ready to celebrate with our family and friends! Driving to our reception was such a wonderful relief because we were married!!!
Our reception was at the Manor House and there is no location more beautiful. I selected this venue because it reminded me of the architecture that I was surrounded by in Oxford, MS, while attending Ole Miss. It has a vintage charm about it that can’t be beat. Furthermore, the house itself features a quaint style that is welcoming and conveys the feeling of entering a family members home. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it in the beginning of the planning process! Now, having actually experienced the venue filled with our family and friends, it was the perfect setting. Not to mention, all of our photos from the day are stunning!
My most-loved component of our reception was our first dance that took place on the front porch of the Manor House. I adored everything about the unique outdoor placement of the distinct dances that featured large white columns and a lovely chandelier as the backdrop. Our guests were able to casually congregate around the front porch, enjoy the Colorado scenery, and share in the moment of us dancing for the first time as husband and wife! I also danced with my Dad, and Mack with his Mom, on the front porch. The photos of those beloved moments will be treasured forever.
The remainder of the reception happened in literally the blink of an eye. Time decided to speed up as we indulged in cake and laughed with family and friends on the dance floor! Before I knew it, we were walking through our sparkler exit and the evening concluded. People warned me about this happening, but it really is so true. The entire day flew by!I have said it once and I will say it a million times over, our wedding day was the BEST day ever! It was a dream come true and so very special for us and our families. I wouldn’t change a single thing and I am so grateful!
