Edmonton Reception

Because one wedding reception wasn't enough, we decided to have one in Edmonton as well. This gave Jerry a chance to celebrate with his friends of which there are many. Unlike our California reception this was held in a cultural hall and as previously mentioned was intensely DIY.
Luckily we had help. Pictured here was our de facto wedding coordinator. Everything beautiful, creative and interesting about our wedding was her idea. She was also our cook and made hundreds of little heart shape grilled cheese sandwiches for us.

The nice thing about having two wedding receptions is having two chances to get it right. For example, I always wanted cheesecake at my wedding. Also, my preference for cakes is square. We had a round wedding cake in California, but this one was square.

These are two of my new nieces. They make me laugh. The older one was very concerned that if she wore white to the reception that people might think she was the bride. The other was telling stories about the wild play date she had had earlier.

Here I am explaining how glad I am that they gave away the top of the cake. I think my in laws were feeling guilty that they started dishing it out.

Jerry feeding me cake. I'm pretty sure that we actually did better at this the first time. But it was fun to do again.
LinkWe had a lot of fun and Jerry really enjoyed his friends. I posted different photos on my family's blog if you want to take a look.

Looks like fun! We actually liked our second reception better - we weren't nearly as frazzled or nervous. You look soo, sooo, sooooo, soooooo pretty. When are you coming to Boston??? Also, I need your new address due to my condition of being a serious slacker when it comes to sending you your (cough, cough) present. :)

P.S. Be sure to send that address my way too. ;)
