our reception went by fast. like, scary fast. everyone told me it would, but i still wasn't prepared for how many people i'd want to talk to (and dance with, and drink with, and take pictures in the photo booth with) in such a short amount of time.
we made our big entrance and started to dance the dance that we'd practiced for weeks. we took three private lessons determined *not* to dance the standard first wedding dance (the clutch and sway, as i've coined it). to the song give me love by ed sheeran, we demonstrated a little lift, a little twirl, a little dip. i pretended i was on dancing with the stars.
and then there was dinner. i don't think i ate two bites because, you know, evie had to eat and then it was time to get up and mingle. (i heard the food was delicious!)
