Show Us Your Life ~ Wedding Reception and Honeymoon

”Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner”

Just like the ceremony, our reception was absolutely exactly what I wanted! We were able to have both the ceremony and reception at Maravilla Gardens. They have two separate large lawns for that purpose. Most of the night was filled with dancing, of course! If you know me, you know that I am always dancing!

Ryan and I had our first dance to At Last by Etta James.

The food that we had catered was fabulous, from what I heard. I hardly had time to take a bite! Same with the cake. According to our family and friends, it was delish! I remember my one important bite, but I think that's all I got to eat!

My absolute favorite picture from our entire wedding portfolio is this one of my sister and her Air Jordan leap for the bouquet! Isn't that classic!

The evening ended on the perfect note. We ran through sparklers to our 1920s limo! It was magical to walk out of the bride's room with my brand new husband to see all of our friends and family smiling in the glow of hundreds of sparklers!

We honeymooned in Saint Lucia, which was beautiful! We spent most of our days either snorkeling, windsurfing, or just relaxing on the beach or at one of the pools.

Isn't our view breathtaking!

We were able to go on a day sail around the island, where we got to tour a cocoa plantation, visit the caldera, and see the entire Caribbean side of the coast.

One night we had dinner prepared for us in our villa. We decided to make that Chargers night! Gotta represent!

I could go on and on. I hope we can return to Saint Lucia again in a few years. Maybe for one of our big anniversaries!


  1. We hardly ate anything at our reception, either! Our parents did pack us a picnic basket & put in the get-away truck, and we had that once we got to the hotel...but the drive was 2 hours, so it was pretty cold...and they forgot to pack any we had to eat it with our hands! But we were so hungry it didnt matter--was the best cold food I've ever eaten (with my hands)! :) We LOVED St. Lucia, too, and totally want to go back for one of our "big" anniversaries, too... I am thinking for #10! :) Your wedding was beautiful!!! Love that poofy dress!! :) Glad you stopped by my blog, nice to "meet" you!

  2. We went to St. Lucia for our honeymoon too -- we loved it! :)
