Words from the bride: We wanted the wedding to be signature to our favorites, while making it comfortable and fun for our guests.  it was more about them having a good time, than us!  I'm (tawny) am more of a hostess than a guest, so making sure that we made the wedding as memorable FOR THEM as for us was important.  this is why we incorporated a non-orthodox "casino night" into the reception because all of our friends and family enjoy gambling.  and, we incorporated a bit of a competition in it because, my family is super undercover competitive.  in addition, the family-style food service was important as well.  we were tired of the traditional wedding feel and made it more "family friendly".  our friends and family have waited a long time for us to finally get married, so this wedding HAD to be impressive, while still staying within our budget!
