It's always so much fun to cover a post-wedding reception party -- everyone is so excited for the newly-married couple, and there's generally such a wonderful air of reunion and delight in being gathered for such a fun reason. And it's even better when everyone at the party knows how to have a good time!!
Jen and Jon got married earlier this spring down in the DC area, and Jon's parents wanted to throw a big reception party to celebrate them. And what a wonderful gathering of family and friends it was! Jen was meeting many of her new extended family for the first time, and it was beautiful to see them welcoming her in with such wide open arms.
The newlyweds brought a whole bunch of silly photo booth props and stashed them in a corner, telling me that some of the guests might find them fun. And wow, did they ever. You haven't seen fun until you see a group of seemingly staid older family friends trying out goofy hats and glasses until they each find the perfect one for each group photo... :)
Jen and Jon, thanks again for asking me to be a part of your lovely celebration! Wishing you guys all the best in your married life together!
