Louie + Mary Elisa: The Reception!

Fab dress with not one, but two pairs of killer shoes…check. Slim suit with a rock and roll edge….check. A ceremony to make it all official…double double check check. The only reasonable thing left to do is get on over to the party to drool over scrumptious details (not the least of which include amazing cupcakes!), get teary over a sentimental dance or two, and put the rockin’ and rollin’ in this rock and roll themed celebration!!

Louie and Mary Elisa’s reception was held in the retro gorgeousness that is the New Hampshire Institute of Art’s French Building!

I absolutely LOVE that the tables were each named after bands rather than using traditional table numbers!
