Over the weekend Chris and I flew to LaGuardia to attend his cousin John’s wedding in the Bronx. It isn’t easy for him to get away during the season without taking off work (aka losing a week’s pay) but luckily he only lost a few services since the orchestra was playing two different programs last week, and he only had to take off for one of them, provided we flew back really early Sunday morning.
The lighting for this picture was not great, but I wanted to show off my awesome dress. I wore this in August, and I seriously love it. It is definitely coming on honeymoon with me.
I’m not going to go into a lengthy description of the wedding, because you don’t know them and probably don’t care, so I’m just going to post some pictures and give a little commentary. Basically the wedding was completely over the top as far as food—SO much food, we were beyond stuffed and then more food was served. It was great to see Chris’s family, especially those that might not make it for our wedding, and the Frank Sinatra style singer at the cocktail hour was the best.
Sugar rimmed champagne glasses upon arrival!
The cocktail hour was great fun, and there were about 8 tables of food to try. We were pretty stuffed before dinner!
My camera was having lighting difficulties. I like the blue lighting.
The end of the wedding was ridiculous—after the cake was served, they turned the dance floor into a dessert buffet, with 10 stations of desserts, including an espresso bar, a gelato bar, fruit, chocolate fountain, cannolis, homemade eggs creams, and a crepe station.
We were completely exhausted and almost sick to our stomachs by the end of the wedding, but I’m glad we got to celebrate with them!
And now I am REALLY excited about our wedding…
