Our Wedding: Dinner Begins

Finally, it was time to eat, and I was seriously starving because my nervous stomach had kept me from eating  all day.  The guests got to find their pinwheel escort cards and head to their tables...

Our pinwheel escort cards were a labor of love - I would not have finished adding the names and table numbers if I hadn't had Bridesmaid Philly helping me before the wedding!  She is handy with a glue gun.  The plastic planters looked perfectly antiqued with their paint job and I think they matched the War Memorial's traditional decor.

I am so thankful that the War Memorial staff took pictures of the reception area set up before guests came in - our photographer was so busy following us that these are some of the only pictures I have of just our reception design.  Again, I am so thankful to my friends and family who set everything up so beautifully and made my vision a reality.

Here's the dinner playlist Mr. Spin and I put together...

Our parents and bridal party were introduced, and it was time for us to go see our guests!

This was one of the most emotional parts of the day for me.  I got choked up seeing a roomful of people I am so thankful to know and love!

I totally stole the idea from a wedding message board to have the caterer put a plate of appetizers from the cocktail hour on our table.  It was such a great idea considering that my blood sugar had taken quite a dive.  Also, shouldn't Lesley consider becoming a food photographer for cookbooks?  This picture is gorgeous.

I am so happy that we decided to go with the sweetheart table.  I cherish every moment we spent together on our wedding day.

Hello, Facebook profile picture.

The page I used for our table number is from The Time Traveler's Wife, one of my all-time favorites with special meaning for Mr. Q and I because we saw the movie together in the theater.

Our bridal party seemed pretty happy to have their own table!

This sweet boy is my cousin's son.  I LOVED his bow tie and declared him honorary ring bearer as soon as I saw it!

My mom and her little brother.

My friends from summer camp and my college Bible fellowship!  I love looking at these pictures because it looks like everyone was having such a great time.
