- The live jazz band. Grady plays in a jazz band and he had the entire band come in to play live music during the reception. The live music led to some really fun dancing and great entertainment.
- The personality. Grady and Jessica infused so much of their personalities and interests into the wedding. This included a catered BBQ dinner and homemade spice rub as the wedding favour (they love meat!) and postcards for people to sign as the guestbook (they love travelling!).
- The speeches. I've said it before, but I am one of those odd people who loves wedding speeches. They allow me to get to know a couple on a much deeper level, as I hear what their closest family and friends have to say about them. The speeches at Grady and Jessica's wedding were thoughtful, hilarious, and perfectly delivered. I was laughing, crying, and smiling through all of them.
