SHOW US YOUR LIFE - Wedding Reception & Honeymoon

Today on Kelly's Korner is Show us your life - Wedding Reception & Honeymoon!
Andrew and I had our reception at Furman University in the room that overlooks the rose garden. We got married in May, so the roses were in full bloom.
Here we are in the rose garden, waiting to go up the reception. We had a dinner buffet and it was so yummy. My Mom made my wedding cake, and it was absolutely beautiful.
(The only thing about where we had our reception was that we couldn't have dancing. I would have loved to have dancing, but it wasn't that big of a deal to us. The tables were decorated with a simple vase with a Gerber Daisy, a rose, and some filler. We did all the flowers ourselves, which is a huge cost saving idea. My sister did all the flowers for her wedding, so we had some experience. As wedding favors, we gave out clear boxes full of purple/white or pink/white M&M's. So we had a box sitting at each place setting on the tables.
For our Honeymoon, we went on a Royal Caribbean Cruise to the Bahamas.
Talk about excited...

Our honeymoon was wonderful. The food was so great, and the service was unlike anything I have ever experienced. That is where I fell in love with Cruising, and have been on 2 more cruises since.

I heard that Royal Caribbean cruises are the best.
Great photos ~ looks like everyone had a terrific time dancing, eating and enjoying the event.
Your cakes was gorgeous and so were the decorations.
Your honeymoon looks like fun too.
