All good things must come to an end. The last bit of our wedding (part 1, part 2, part 3) involved dancing, s'mores, a DIY photobooth, and a wardrobe change! After the formals were done, Brandon and I couldn't wait to start celebrating without all the nerves from earlier in the day.

It's pretty obvious that this little nugget tore up the dance floor more than most adults. She had moves I couldn't even pretend to keep up with. Those little legs moved way too fast for this bride. We danced pretty intensely to Taylor Swift's "Shake it Off" and I have no regrets - even after seeing photos of my "dancing face".
My mom suprised me with a choreographed dance to the one country song I allotted her for the night. (Brandon and I were pretty picky about the music - we hate country.) I have to admit, it was impressive! There was a group of like, 40 people line-dancing to Zac Brown Band. Caught me 100% off-guard. Touche, mom.
Our photographer stole Brandon and I for some of the most beautiful wedding shots I could imagine right at sunset! My reception dress was a million times more comfortable and I felt so much more natural in it. (I think this had a ton to do with it being time to just let loose and enjoy the party, too!) I love this entire collection of photos. I just chose a few for the blog, but I swear I'll send the whole shebang to whoever. How many wedding photos are "too many" to print? Haha!
Then we jumped right back into making s'mores, drinking drinks, and dancing the night away! The marshmallows were home-made by Brandon's mom, the s'mores kits were put together by my aunt and family, and our little sign (shown in the first photo) was made by Letters from Rita. We loved having that little extra something for everyone to munch on (as if the meal and cake weren't enough) and enjoy outside!
To finish off the night, our DJs invited everyone outside to join Brandon and I. Just as everyone stepped out of the tent FIREWORKS went off to end off our perfect night. It felt like a total dream.
And just like that our evening was done! Friends and family left, our shuttle brought us to our hotel, and we walked away as husband and wife. I can't explain how quickly this day went by! All those details I worried so much about went unnoticed by myself and all my worries were for nothing. Thanks again to everyone who shared a helping hand, who showed their smiling faces at our wedding, and those who joined us in spirit. We are still delighted to have shared this day with each of you!
