Wedding Week! The Reception

Let's party!!
Here's a ridiculous amount of photos of people dancing, laughing and having a great time!

For those of you who don't know, on September 8th, 2012, Bob and I got hitched. It was a wonderful day from the very start. We were married at White Eagle Golf Club in Naperville, IL and they were insanely helpful throughout the whole planning process - and made the day go by without a single incident. :)
I'll be sharing photos and some stories about the day with you this week - so please check back each day for more!
In case you missed anything along the way, here's the rest of the wedding:
"Getting Ready"
"The Ceremony"
"Portraits"

Because that's exactly everything that happened at the reception - it was the most amazing time ever.
Dinner was delicious, too. mmmm

Introduced as Mr. & Mrs. Humberstone for the first time! :)

We entered to "Chelsea Dagger" by The Fratellis
It's the song that plays when the Chicago Blackhawks score a goal!

First Dance:
"I Won't Give Up" by Jason Mraz

We were boring and just swayed. There were a couple spins. 
Nothing choreographed or anything fancy.

Our Sweetheart Table
DIY Table number sign and menus! :)

Gorgeous ballroom at White Eagle

Loved our tables - they were so pretty

Champagne parade (with sparklers!) before the toasts

Dad gave a great toast! Love him!


Maid of Honor speech - full of so many silly jokes!

Best Man speech - the most touching thing, ever.
I don't think there was a dry eye in the house.

Cake!
Caramel Infused cake with Caramel filling and buttercream frosting.
YUM YUM YUM

Cake Cutting

We were nice and didn't shove it in each other's faces

But did attack each other with frosting!


I loved how simple our cake was decorated. :)

Daddy - Daughter Dance

Mother - Son Dance

Dancing with my parents :)

My Aunt and Uncle from New Jersey came in for the weekend!
I was so excited to see them 

Yes, I slow danced with my sister. <3

Bridesmaids and their boys - I love that they all became buddies!



Bob, the Dads and the Groomsmen all enjoyed a cigar out on the patio

Teaching Mom some dance moves!



Mother-in-Law Hugs :)

Mama Hugs

We've got the loot!
Bob was actually carrying this around like a baby for a while. haha

We ordered a town-car, and they sent a giant limo!
So exciting!

Goodnight!



...and they lived happily ever after...

So there ya go! There's our whole wedding in photos!

It truly was a wonderful day. Nothing major went wrong, everyone got along. The sun was shining...
Just absolute perfection. I hope I never forget any of the details!

Thanks for tagging along! Up next, I'll share the highlights from our Honeymoon in the Caribbean!

  2. Everything was just gorgeous! What a fantastic venue.

    Did you guys do separate dances with your parents? Or did you do the mother-son, father-daughter dances to the same song?
