Bamboo for Two: The End of the Night

And with a blink of the eye, our reception was coming to an end.

The cupcakes and some coffee and tea were put out for people to enjoy.

Then my MOH started gathering people for the after-party while our parents and the venue staff started to take all of the decorations down while PBear and I said our goodbyes and paid off the rest of our tab.

I know a lot of people plan exits for themselves, but honestly, I was planning on being the last man standing. I wanted to be there until the bitter end, and suddenly there we were. I remember the immense sadness, happiness, relief, and tiredness that I felt. It had taken so long to carefully put everything together, and yet within minutes it had all been taken back down. It was so sad looking around the room at the remains.

The panda bag held everything we needed to bring back that night, and we left the rest of it with my parents to bring back the next day.

We walked a few blocks down to our after-party in an excited, dreamy night. The night was alive and excited with spectators of the Boston versus Chicago Stanley Cup game (we eventually won this game in overtime but lost the series—oh well). It was so utterly romantic, just us and the city we love so much.

We had the balcony area of Globe Bar and Grill, a bar nearby, and we just hung out for old times’ sake. All in all, it was a nice mellow end to the day. If I could freeze any moment on our wedding day, I think it would be this moment right here.

And with that, our wedding day was over. After a few rounds of drinks, we hailed down a cab and headed back home.

    That’s a great way to end the evening! And I totally wanted to be the last to leave my wedding, even if it mean no cute sparkler photos for the Waterfalls.
