After the ceremony, guests sipped cocktails on the lawn and nibbled passed hors d’oeuvres of curried shrimp, risotto and mushroom croquettes and ahi tuna. "I was moved by my brother-in-law’s toast. He talked at great length about what a fun couple we are and how good we are together. I was touched by his kind words," says Alex.
The band, Project Pimento, kicked off the dancing with crowd-pleasing cover tunes that had what the bride calls "a 1960s lounge twist." "During the cocktail hour, we played everything from old Jo Stafford songs to the theme from The OC. It was an eclectic, fun mix, and each song meant something special to us." The newlyweds didn’t share a traditional first dance, but instead took a bounce together in the bouncy house, an inflated castle-shaped structure that provided a trampoline-like experience.
