The wedding was beautiful and fun. I’ll let the photos do most of the talking:
After some fun hanging out at the hotel, we boarded a bus to the ceremony. It was a looong ride and I was thirsty so I had some of Matt’s water –
We made it to the church on time –
It is HOT here!! We got on the bus to head to the reception and it was nice and cool, but when you step back outside the humidity hits you like a wall
The reception was beautifully decorated
The table cards were also menus!
My thirst was finally quenched with some Perrier!! I wasn’t interested in alcohol at this point
Matt and I shared this plate. My greek salad lunch actually held me over wonderfully and I wasn’t even that hungry 5 hours later, but I had a few cheeses because they are delicious and a cracker or two.
And passed – had one of these and turned down several more
I finally got a glass of wine when it seemed we were approaching being seated for dinner
Table 6 was the “rowdy frat bros” table in the back
Derby Salad – a tradition here
My wine glass was refilled when I had only drank half, so this isn’t as much as it seems more
I had a fluffy roll and shared it with Matt
The entree was a Petit Filet with Shrimp, Potatoes and Veggies.
And after. I left most of the beef and taters
First dance during dinner
The love of my life!!
Happy for cake
That would be Cookies n Cream Oreo filling!! MMMMM! Excellent buttercream.
Matt was out in the ballroom and brought me a piece not knowing that we’d been served. We both ate the filling and icing off of it (neither of us like the “bread” part as we call it)
And a friend gave me the icing he rejected when I raved about it
So I ate a good amount of icing, but not much “cake”
Having had 2 drinks, I moved on to club sodas
We did a lot of dancing next –
I felt pretty good about my eating for the evening (you guys know how much special events are my weakness!)
Until the late-night cookie favors came out!
I ate half of the bride and half of the groom over the course of two hours. Not the healthiest way to end the night!
We didn’t get home until 1AM after an hour long bus ride and were totally exhausted. I fell asleep instantly.
Congrats to Clare and Dover and thanks for the wonderful wedding!!!
