Show us your life-Reception and Honeymoon

So finally the reception. I thought I had a lot more pictures but can't seem to find the professional ones. :( Anyways I did my own center pieces to save some $. Here is Barbara and I assembling the apple vases. There were filled with water and had little tea lights floating on top.
I did a lot of DIY projects. Here is my ribbon board which held the escort cards. Thanks to Martha Stewart!
I thought our reception was a lot of fun. In fact I didn't want it to end. Here we are dancing away. It looks like we are dancing by ourselves but there were lots of people dancing. So much in fact that our DJ extended the reception by 1 hour!

Did I mention that we danced?!? Here is my new hubby breaking it down.
The night flew by so fast we kind of forgot to cut the cake. Finally the DJ remembered but of course a lot of people had already left. So we got to take a whole lot of leftovers home for ourselves. It was delicious. Chocolate cake soaked in raspberry liquor, filled with raspberries, and topped with butter cream. Yummmmmy!

Close-up of the cake. I drew the design on a piece of paper and sent it my cake lady. She probably thought I was nuts. Then in the end she ended up getting it wrong. Oh well. Haha.
Now for the Honeymoon. We went to Sandals Antiqua and it was absolutely gorgeous. I had never been anywhere in the caribbean and this was every thing I thought it would be. Gorgeous aqua waters, soft sand, and warm breezes. It was a little hot but who cares when you are in paradise, right? Here we are on a sailing excursion.
Enjoying the outdoor lounge after dinner.
One of the many gorgeous sunsets.
This is where we ate breakfast. Seriously.
You couldn't beat the hammock chairs there. Perfect for a nap.
I can't wait to go back. I guess will have to go to Beaches now having a little one and all.
