Reverb 10 Challenge: Party

December 9, 2010

December 9th’s Reverb10 Prompt comes from Shauna Reid of The Amazing Adventures of Diet Girl

Prompt: Party. What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010? Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans.

Rehearsal

This one is easy.  The best party this year was Hubs and my rehearsal dinner.  Our wedding was an expected kind of awesome.  Our rehearsal dinner was an unexpected awesome.  We knew it was be great to hang out with our family and friends, but we had no idea everything about it would be so great.  We had Mexican street tacos cooked on site by Tacos & Gorditas.  It was beyond amazing.  We had margaritas from Senorita Margarita and cake from Sumi’s Oven

My now mother-in-law created an open mic policy, so we got to hear some amazingly sweet and hilarious stories from friends and family members.

And we closed the night around the bonfire.

Our rehearsal dinner was amazing because it was the “intimate wedding” we might have had if there weren’t other obligations and expectations for us.  We didn’t expect to have such a great time and it set the mood for the rest of the wedding festivities.  I have to thank my Mama and Papa in laws for hosting our rehearsal.  It was a great party with all of our favorite things… great food, great drinks, great people, great conversations, and some really great moments.  Parties don’t get much better than that!

Did you attend any unexpectedly awesome parties this year?

  1. Looks like it was great party – the warmth of the occasion is visible in every photo. (And congrats for getting caught up!)

  2. That sounds like an amazing gathering — bet all your guests had a memorably fantastic time!

  3. Your rehearsal dinner looks like lots of fun. I love bonfire of all kinds!

  4. Your rehearsal dinner looks so beautiful! I felt the same way about ours… the intimate wedding feel. I just got married on 10/23 so it was a year of great parties for us with the engagement and showers and of course the wedding weekend! I found your blog on the weddingbee post and I excited to read more of your recaps 🙂

  5. Next time you have an awesome party with a margarita machine, I expect an invitation. Mmmmkay? 😉
