Wedding Day: The Reception9:00 AM
Our napkins and table runner were embroidered by a friend of my mother in law's. My mother in law actually hemmed the napkins and table runner herself. I spent so long trying to find dark gray napkins and never found any that met my standards so I went to the fabric store and bought this beautiful fabric along with the pink embroidery thread so that it could be made exactly how I wanted. It turned out beautiful and now we have custom napkins to use when we throw dinner parties and such.

We had started out outside on the deck, but drops of rain started coming down so the staff stepped in and swiftly moved the table into the restaurant and we went on with the night. It was such a smooth transition that it was something that I barely even remembered.
And then it was time for the cake
J watched me cut the cake because he didn't want the "cheesy cake cutting picture" (his words not mine)
and said goodbye to our wonderful, magical day.
* I am Chinese (Taiwanese, to be exact) and it is tradition to have the double happiness symbol at weddings. Even though we did not have a traditional Chinese wedding, I still wanted to incorporate it somehow.
