Erika & Joel – Wedding Reception at The Orchard

August 24, 2017

After the ceremony it was time to party!  I loved that Erika and Joel incorporated their favorite fandoms into their decor as cake toppers!  Everything from Justice League, to Harry Potter were present and it was awesome.  After cake cutting, toasts and a little bit of dancing it was time for the bouquet and garter.  Now, I have to say I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a dad monitor his new son-in-law during the removal of the garter, but Erika’s dad made sure that he had Joel in check.  Not to worry, Joel didn’t break a sweat and removed the garter with ease.  The rest of the evening flew by in a flash and before we knew it, it was time to say goodbye.  After a sweet private dance, Erika and Joel made their way to their getaway car surrounded by family, friends and sparklers.  I’m so happy for these two and can’t wait to see what the future brings them (and Franklin)!
