The wedding was exactly what we were looking for with a laid back dinner and lots of dancing. We worked hard to have the night relaxed and fun and guests, and I think we achieved it.
These last photos of our wedding highlight the fun that we had during the speeches and dancing. Enjoy!
While people were finishing up their dinners we got up to say thanks to our family and friends for coming to celebrate this new chapter in our lives together.
And then we welcomed up my sister to give her Matron of Honor Speech.
I am not a fan of speeches or particularly being the center of attention in instances like that. They really make me anxious so Price and I agreed that my sister and his brother would be the only ones giving speeches. The parents were warned of consequences (me full body tackling them), repeatedly.
She wrote a lovely speech about having a fun and loving successful relationship and marriage. She has been married for over 14 years so she gave Price some very important advice that works for them… the wife it always right! ha!
I have reread her speech several times since then the wedding since she gave us her speech. I love it. I totally need to get it framed.
Cheers-ing with the wedding ‘theme’ matching personalized Mason Jar glasses she gifted to us. Love it!
And then it was Price’s brother’s turn to give his Best Man Speech.
Chase basically roasted all the Taggarts.
While everyone was recovering from Chase’s hilarious speech, we took a moment to cut our cake and give each other a bite.
Our venue, Crissey Farm, is attached to the Great Barrington Brewery, which is well known for their Chocolate Stout Cake. The chef who runs the Brewery kichenalso runs the Crissey Farm catering kitchen, so we worked with her to modify the signature recipe a bit to get the cake we were dreaming of. The look and taste were just perfect!
We are moving before our 1 year anniversary and it will just be too tricky to transport the frozen top tier of the cake, so we have decided to eat it the night before we move. I suggested at the 6 month anniversary, but Price suggested the night before the move as a great send off to one chapter in our life and to welcome a new one. So sweet, I just wanted to eat the cake again ASAP! HA!
To kick off the night of dancing, my dad and I then did our Father Daughter Dance.
I had selected the song “That’s My Daughter in The Water” by Loudon Wainwright. I first heard it at the end of Knocked Up and I loved it ever since. It’s just such a sweet song.
And then the dancing!!!!!!!
My addable niece Cara cut a rug the whole night. She partied hard dancing around all the cousins and adults.
Besides our wedding cake, we served small bite served desserts so people could sample a variety of things depending on their preferences. Also, you could grab something and run right to the dance floor!
While these photos are bright from the photographer’s flashes, the room was dark as we turned off the main hall lights and just had some accent lights on low. Just a FYI…
One of my favorite photos of the night. Love Megan and Sarah!
Throughout the night we had different playlists to match the music with the mood, so for the dance portion of the wedding we amped things up with our “DANCE EXPLOSION” playlist to get everyone dancing.
We have out glow in the dark necklaces and bracelets.
They were a big hit with everyone, especially the kids. They were a fun accessory to dance around with.
The Gensler Crew!!!!
We also gave out flip flops for anyone who wanted to use them. Just kick off your shoes, slap on some flip flops, and get comfortable to dance!
Our last dance song was “Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond.
It’s such a classic feel good song. It felt so right in us picking it as it’s practically the unofficial song of Boston, where we met.
After the wedding a handful of us went to next door to Great Barrington Brewery to play some pool and dance around to music from the jute box. We closed out the bar too!
