we are almost done with the wedding wednesdays!
some of y’all are probably thrilled,
others hopefully enjoyed wedding madness as much as I did.
I’ll likely continue to wedding stalk on style me pretty and pinterest as much as I did before I was even engaged…. it never gets old
I have some reception highlights to share today!
I wanted passed Coca-Cola bottles as a nod to my Dad (his career was with Coke),
so everyone raised a bottle of Coke in his honor for the wedding toast.
ugly crying below…..
our cake was so pretty!
and at the cake tasting Kip randomly said “you’d bet you’d like the clovers on either side of the R.”
my mom and I gasped….. so proud…. I’ve rubbed off on him so much.
I surprised Kip with his Grooms Cake
I hate, hate, hate being on stage/speaking in public/ anything related to the sort.
So when I had to be on stage to dance (torture) I did my best Mary Katherine Gallagher to ease the anxiety.
you know I can’t do a post without adding in a gif of some kind…. sooooo
we had a photo booth set up with props for everyone to have fun with.
kip’s shirt was open the majority of the evening.
his studs “kept falling out” ….. which yes, they did, during the wedding photos we kept having to button them back up…. but really the groomsmen just seemed to de-robe the moment the party started
my favorite picture of one of my best friends below.
she is the life of the party from start to finish and this picture is perfection.
our band was incredible…. and luckily encouraged (or more likely didn’t discourage) our joining them and hoisting everyone in the air.
jump roping is always quite the hit at the o’shaughnessy weddings
my brother in law and his friends are always amazing with it
during the jump roping,
my moms friend dove in her dress across the dance floor on her stomach underneath the guys legs.
it was truly one of the greatest moments
of the night of my life.
the monogrammed shrimp bar was one of my favorite things
(that I didn’t even see until almost the end of the night when my mom pointed it out — it was a surprise from her)
I was blind to everything…. you spend months picking things out and then never see a thing!
we had a sparkler departure that was so pretty!
which led to a golf cart for us to drive off in.
however, the golf cart was facing back towards everyone…. the way we just walked…. so we then had to drive back through everyone and wave goodbye…….again.
luckily we somehow didn’t run anyone over.
we ended the night with individual Krispy Kreme boxes that said
Sweet Dreams from Taylor and Kip

I want to do it all over again!
Especially those Krispy Kremes……
nothing is better than a fresh krispy kreme. or four.
