Wedding Recap Part 1 | Welcome Party

Photography: Costola Photography

There are very few times in our lives where all of our loved ones come together to relax and celebrate – our Wedding Weekend was one of those rare occasions.

With both of our families and closet friends arriving on Friday, we kicked off our wedding weekend from October 4 – October 6 with a Lakeside Welcome Party. We wanted a chance to thank all of our guests for traveling to be with us and fully take advantage of every minute of having everyone together.

On the property that we would also be getting married at, we transformed the space to have a totally different vibe than what guests would experience on our wedding day. Keeping in tradition with Travis’ family ‘Pizza Friday’, we served artisan-style pizza made in a woodfired pizza truck, dips, garlic knots, and salad.

We wanted everyone to relax and feel at home on this lake that was so significant (and about to become even more so). With a casual vibe, we served drinks out of large galvanized bins for a backyard feel and mini ice-cream cones from Trader Joes at the end of the evening. We wrapped everything up by surprising our families by lighting remembrance lanterns for our loved ones that couldn’t be with us that weekend. It was truly a special moment that I’m so grateful we went forward with.

I hope you enjoy a look at our Welcome Party that kicked off the best weekend ever. All details are linked below the pictures. Stay tuned next week for Wedding Recap Part 2 | Getting Ready and Our First Look
