Part 3 - The Destination Wedding - Cocktail hour and Reception

By Melanie

After the ceremony, it was time for the cocktail hour with drinks and appetizers at the outside bar lounge area and of course time for taking lots of photos of family and friends.

Me and my sister.

My friend Mya.

My friend Ursula (check out her blog at Traveling Mango -it's awesome!)

Although the photographers did a great job capturing so many moments, I wish we would have designated someone to organize the photo shoot. It was a little challenging for the photographer to get everyone to cooperate. I think everyone was already in party mode and having fun. Who could blame them! We took advantage of this and took some couple photos.

My favorite! I love our reflection in the tide pool.

After the cocktail hour we held the reception in an air conditioned room that overlooked the water. This was a good decision since it was 90 degrees and windy.

Now I know that most guests do not like to participate in a dance train during a reception so we did NOT plan this. But family and friends are so fun they decided to start one on their own. Everyone had a blast and dance the day away!

Here we are dancing to our song, Sea of Love by Cat Power. This song was so perfect for us. I get so teary eyed when I here it on my ipod.
I feel like the luckiest girl to marry Brian and have so many of my family and friends with me to celebrate. Perfect ending to the best day of my life!
