~ Michele's and Derek's Wedding Reception ~

Tradition dictates a reception to follow a wedding ceremony to honor the newly married couple and to celebrate their happiness of the event. This reception was that sort of celebration and honor. The hall was full, the music lively and a great time was had by all in attendance. This was a wedding reception to remember.
May their marriage be filled with Trust, Honor, Understanding, Respect, Acceptance and Love, Always.

NOTE: My guess is that Michele was very tired and stiff, if not sore, on Sunday. She danced every dance throughout the afternoon. The only times I saw her sitting were for the toast, the dinner and the snatching of the garter by Derek.
