Fortunately, the Red Lion, Paper Valley Hotel had power for Laura and Dan’s Disney themed reception. Cocktail hour was held in the reception hall, with décor to match Laura’s love for Disney. Every guest was assigned a Disney character, which matched with a dinner table. Everything was soft, purple, silver, and fairy-tale like.
After group photographs with their photographer, Jocelyn from Paper Raven Photography,the grand march ensued with style and energy, as family and friends welcomed Laura and Dan’s close friends and family of the wedding party into the reception to “Marry You” by Bruno Mars. All the bridesmaids and groomsmen were incredibly supportive and ready throughout the special day to help Laura and Dan in any way. Dinner was delicious, interspersed with guests picking Hershey kisses from a tote, which were wrapped in three different colors. After picking a gold kiss, several people had to smooch another, and others (including Laura’s dad!) told a story about Laura or Dan when they picked a silver kiss. Finally, Laura and Dan got to kiss if guests picked a purple-wrapped Hershey kiss! Toasts followed, with funny stories shared by the Maid of Honor and Best Man, showing their love for Laura and Dan. Dr. Keith conducted a funny, well-researched speech praising his daughter’s accomplishments and welcoming Dan to the family.
Here’s to new beginnings,
