While games and festivities were to be had outside, inside the barn, the real party was starting.
All the tables had been set with their mason jar centerpieces and horseshoe favors (more on them later!).
Our sweetheart table was ready, including the last minute chair signs I made and the champagne glasses gifted by my mother-in-law (love them!).
The bar was open and drinks, including beer in mason jars, were flowing!
The cupcakes were out and ready to be eaten!
To top it all off, the band, fronted by my uncle, was already rocking out!

Sadly, this is the ONLY photo of the entire 3-man band together.

This is my Uncle Frank, one of my mom's brothers. His band is called Downshift and they offered to play at the reception for us. Yes, it was awesome. And they were awesome. Apparently my uncle is a local legend, due to his guitar talent, and actually recorded a few records in the 60's and 70's. One of the bands he was in was 'Tripsichord Music Box' and if you google them, it's quite a trip (literally).
Anyway, the band started playing during cocktail hour which was surreal, and the dance floor was hopping.
Even I was getting into the action!
Up Next: Before arriving at the reception, Cowboy H and I get mugged!
