Reception after Destination Wedding?

Like most people seem to be doing these days, my husband and I decided on a [destination](https://wedding-recycle.com/blog/category/destination-maven/) wedding. We knew before anything was ever “finalized” that we would get married in Vegas. We have now been married for 2 years and looking back on it, I wouldn’t have done it any other way. I didn’t […]
