♥ our wedding: the reception.

our wedding reception took place at the red lion inn's gorgeous barn.
it's simple elegance really set the tone for the entire wedding, 
and looked so beautiful with just a bit of candlelight and
a few bursts of color.

our first dance was "forever young" by bob dylan-
a song that has meant much to us over the years and perfectly
expresses our attitude towards life and love.

my sister, lissy and our comedian friend, will
gave heartfelt, hilarious speeches.

in addition to our strawberry coated wedding cake, our friend, chris baked
some  delicious vegan cupcakes for the occasion. sampling them earlier on,
 i didn't feel half as bad eating the entire container.

there were lots of spontaneous performances that night.
lissy turned into sasha fierce during beyonce's "put a ring on it."

timothy and i danced to cyndi lauper's "time after time"
a la romy and michelle

and then nick and i gave the performance of a lifetime-
singing along to the eleven minute, way-too- extended version
of my favorite karaoke song, meatloaf's "anything for love."
it was a crowd pleaser!

....but i won't do that.
