We Start Today: Making an Entrance

It was time to enter our reception, but before we made it inside our bridal party needed to be introduced. For their entrance we chose a song that we thought couldn’t be more perfect, the theme song from Friends! We didn’t tell any of our bridal party about the song choice, so when the music started they all got really excited!

“I’ll Be There for You” – The Rembrandts {Press play to listen}

First in were Bridesmaid C and Groomsman R!


Next were Bridesmaid S and Groomsman I. She was so excited about the song choice because the only thing we ever watched on TV in college was Friends. We didn’t have cable, but we did have all 10 seasons of Friends on DVD!

The next two in were Bridesmaid L and her fiancé Groomsman R.


Groomsman R took L’s bouquet and tossed it up over his head.


L waiting for it to come back down


She caught it!


Bridesmaid J and Groomsman M followed, posing and being silly.



And finally MOH N and BM N came dancing in.


Our bridal party made their way through the tables and down to the dance floor.


Before we made our entrance there was a change in music. This was completely Mr. Castle’s choice. I was unsure about it for a while but finally gave in. Mr. Castle decided on “The Power of Love” because of its connection to one of his favorite movies, Back to the Future. It ended up being the perfect choice. Our MC Brent let the music play a bit and got our guests on their feet and cheering. They shut the doors after our bridal party had entered and now had a spotlight on the doors in anticipation of our entrance. Brent finally introduced us as the new Mr. and Mrs. Castle. The doors opened and we made the most exciting entrance of our lives!

I look like a crazy person in this photo…I was just really excited!


Making our way through the crowd. PS: I got my dress all bustled up! I was so happy that I didn’t have to worry about my train anymore.


Making our way to the dance floor


It was such a thrilling way to start our reception.


When we made it to the dance floor Brent took my bouquet and we went straight into our first dance!
