We had our cake made from Annette's Cakes. We had yellow cake with raspberry filling for the first tier and the second tier had yellow cake with fudge filling. 

We had our bird toppers handmade for us from Etsy. From Primitive Season. We also got the wooden cake stand on Etsy from Clay Olson.

We got our cupcakes from Sweet by Holly. They have a cupcake shop both in Jacksonville and Orlando. If you ever travel there I highly recommend it. They have the BEST cupcakes! We got 3 dozen cupcakes and they were almost all gone by the evening was over!


We had our wedding guest book specially made for us from Breeze Mountain on Etsy. The seller did such a well job on it and so many people wrote beautiful things in it. We will cherish it for many years. 


The card box also came from Etsy, from the seller Shelly Boney. She did such a good job on it, we were very impressed and many people complimented us on it! I think the guest book and card box coordinated so well together.

Dad and daughter dance. We danced to I Loved Her First by Heartland. 

Both Ryan, I and our families are very laid back and not really "party" people. We like to sit down, have a good dinner and just have a good time. We had our reception in a separate room at Copper Canyon Grill. 

It was a small room but I think that made the reception more intimate and personal. We got to spend quality time with our family and we liked that. :) 

For dinner we started with Cesar Salad, and then everyone could choose from The Salmon Dinner or Chicken & Ribs or the Steak Dinner. Then for desert we had chocolate uprising w/ice cream. It was very delicious and I think I had more than my share of good food. :) 

As for the theme of the reception, we were going for a rustic theme. With the little birds everywhere, handmade pieces/decorations, and flowers set in wooden containers (not shown) made the theme come alive. Everyone loved the decorations and thought that I did such a good job designing it all. 

I don't know if I mentioned who our florist was before but we had our flowers done from Dream Design Florist in Orlando. The florist did such a wonderful job, we were very impressed with their service and quality. Everyone loved the flowers!
