Our Fabulous, Fun Dessert Soirée

We had a unbelievable soirée to celebrate after the ceremony. We had a dessert buffet with cupcakes, cheesecake, cookies, gummy bears, tofu maple bars, and more. And yes, a dessert buffet was a blast and I loved it; after all, dessert is often the most enjoyable part of a meal. And nobody freaked out that we did not serve a whole dinner, but just in case, we also had fruit, brie and baguettes, and almonds to counter all the sweet deliciousness.

Anyhow, because we chose to have the wedding in Québec, and S has a TON of musician friends here, we were able to have an amazing band of his friends at our reception (for free!). One of his friends coordinated it all for us, and the result was an awesome band and loads of great music. Because S has so many musician friends, they switched out on instruments and vocals all night, and we had nonstop music until the wee hours of the morning! It was great- a fabulous band made up of tons of friends- who even thought to put in some U2 for me. It was SUCH an AMAZING gift, and everyone loved the music! And I think the band had a blast playing together too! :)

It was a fabulous party and we had a blast dancing and laughing and talking and eating! Just generally being giddy-happy with family and friends from all around the world gathered in one place. Completely joy-inducing...

  2. Hi, Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    In answer to your question - I did wear my engagement ring on it's proper finger on our wedding day. Then we just put the wedding band on top of it for the day. I now wear it underneath.

    I adore that last photo - you both look crazy amounts of happy!

    Hope you'll drop by again soon - I'm starting wedding recaps this week.
