• Cape Wedding: Reception

    September 12, 2011

    Just in case you missed the first two posts in this series:

    Johnny and Alexa’s reception was such a blast! Holy moly. I haven’t had that much fun at a wedding since my own!

    After the bride and groom made their grand entrance and did their first dance as a married couple, it was time to eat dinner.

    On the menu: New England clam chowder, spinach salad with goat cheese and dried cranberries, and haddock with black olive tapenade and mashed potatoes. I loved this meal— one of the best I’ve had at a wedding!


    After dinner, there was plenty of singing.

    And beer chugging, which was totally Marie’s idea.


    Just kidding. It was mine! ;-)

    Awesome wedding! Thanks for including us in your special day, Johnny and Alexa!

    I am OBSESSED with all things nautical! That cake is my DREAM! Oh. My. Gosh. I need to get re-married just so I can steal that idea!

    It looks like you had a blast! I love weddings!


    Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife September 12, 2011 at 8:52 am

    The dancing part is MY favorite part of any reception. SO fun :)


    Holly @ The Runny Egg September 12, 2011 at 8:56 am

    That meal sounds delicious! Starting with clam chowder is a great idea.

    I’m glad you had fun!


    Stephanie @ Food and Fitness 4 Real September 12, 2011 at 9:01 am

    It looked like such a fun wedding! We are past the wedding season in our life (most of our friends are already married), so I miss going to fun weddings with lots of drinking and dancing. Thanks for posting pictures so I can live vicariously through your.
    So why, exactly, did you have to be on one knee to chug your beer?


    Tina September 12, 2011 at 11:06 am

    @Stephanie @ Food and Fitness 4 Real: LOL! I have no idea. I think that was my idea too! :)


    Paige September 12, 2011 at 9:03 am

    Omg I love that cake!! How fitting for the locale:)


    Courtney @ Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life September 12, 2011 at 9:05 am

    That dance floor looks packed! But I think those last couple pictures say it all…definitely looks like a blast of a wedding. :)


    Mer @mersworld September 12, 2011 at 9:11 am

    Looks like it was a beautiful wedding with fun had by all! Who doesn’t need some beer chugging to end a wedding reception?!


    Taylor @ Crumbs Don't Count September 12, 2011 at 9:13 am

    Ash @ Good Taste Healthy Me September 12, 2011 at 9:13 am

    What fun! I love that you guys are all glamored up and you’re chugging beer. LOL. I went to a wedding this weekend too. It was fun but the timing was totally messed up. We didn’t eat dinner until 9:45!


    Hilliary @ Happily Ever Healthy September 12, 2011 at 9:15 am

    Love the cake! Looks like you guys had fun!

    Cat @Breakfast to Bed September 12, 2011 at 10:56 am

    I was AWESOME at beer chugging in college. I think I would suck now. This is sad.


    Corrie Anne September 12, 2011 at 11:01 am

    Looks like an awesome celebration. The theme was really well done & looks like you definitely had fun!


    brooke September 12, 2011 at 11:20 am

    I had a similar wedding theme and cake! LOVE IT!!! Was this wedding in Chatham? That’s my favorite place :) !!


    Cara @ EAT.PRAY.RUN. September 12, 2011 at 12:34 pm

    The nautical theme is SO cute for a summer wedding. Looks like it was a wonderful celebration!

    Looks like SO much fun!!! I cannot wait for my friends wedding. :-)


    Shannon@HungryGazelle September 12, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    I’m in love with the theme of this wedding… and the beer chugging :)


    Brittney September 12, 2011 at 1:37 pm

    Ah, my cousin had her reception there! That place is so nice! I stayed at the resort actually :) The church in your previous post actually might be the same one she got married in too- she’s from Chatham and it looks the same as what I remember!


    Lara @ TresLaLa September 12, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    What’s the deal with chugging on one knee? I might have to implement that at our next house party! Makes for great photos!


    Rosa - Fitness, Food, Fulfilled September 12, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    Lol, the beer chugging pics cracked me up!

    Looks like everyone had a blast!


    Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio September 12, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    I love the beer chugging! Why on one knee though?

    The cake is super cute too! I love the rope going down the side of the cake.


    Kelly September 12, 2011 at 2:29 pm

    I love those center pieces!!


    Nicole @ Giraffelegs September 12, 2011 at 2:39 pm

    the cake is awesome!!! love the anchor!


    Gina @ Will Run for Cupcakes September 13, 2011 at 7:30 am

    Oh my goodness that looks dangerous but fun. I have to sharpen my beer chugging skills. I used to be a pro, but I’ve fallen off!
    So glad you had an awesome time :)


    Athena September 13, 2011 at 4:32 pm

    That beer chugging picture reminds me of my girlfriends and I in college! We used to call that “taking a knee” and have several different renditions of that picture! I love it :)


    alexa o'brien September 18, 2011 at 6:14 pm

    I have to say this is my favorite post- maybe I’m just biased loved it!!! you take great photos. Glad you and Mal had fun!
