ABBY + CHRIS | HOYT ARBORETUM + ECOTRUST WEDDING

I never went to parties when I was younger. I should clarify that it was probably due to a lack of invitations, not a lack of curiosity. This wedding reception felt a lot like what I imagined a good party must be like. The connection between friends, the music, the laughter… it was glorious. Wedding receptions are often my highlight of the entire day, and I see why people love parties so much. The sense of belonging alone is intoxicating, especially when combined with actual intoxication  😉  I often watch the bride to see her reaction to all the fun being had, and the combination of pride and relief is incredibly sweet. Brides often spend a year planning for their day, and the pressure for everyone to JUST HAVE A GOOD TIME can be overwhelming, for some. When it all comes together, it’s absolute magic.

It’s ironic that I’m now a bit of a professional party-attender. Who would have guessed?  Granted, I am there as an observer, rather than a participant… but if I’m being honest, that’s my best case scenario for social gatherings, anyway. Abby and Chris, I hope your life together is as great a party as the wedding was.
