Our Wedding

What an amazing, perfect day!

Wedding Preparation
The weather started out rainy, but by the time we were due to leave the hotel all precipitation had stopped and we were able to walk through the village to The Upper Crust. Mom and Emily came to the hotel to help me and get ready and Alison showed up a bit later with the bubbly.

The walk to the wedding was very interesting, I hadn't anticipated all the starring and comments, but it was fun anyhow.

The Wedding Ceremony
The ceremony was wonderful, everything turned out perfectly including the readings by Emily and Pia and Christopher's song.

I was VERY nervous when reading my vows and had to stop twice, how embarrassing. Ari did a fantastic job during his.

The Party
The reception was all we had hoped it would be, we had such an amazing time - it went by so very fast! We had so much fun eating, dancing, and spending time with all the wonderful friends and family who were there to help us celebrate.

We all danced the night away, including a Journey finale involving much loud singing and jumping - what a blast!

The Details
Dan, from The Upper Crust and I came up with what turned out to be a spectacular decor plan for the reception. I made three different types of votives for the tables, Mom made a beautiful runner for the main table and I also created 15 feet of strands of semi-precious beads to hang from the chandeliers. All these details combined for truly fantastic decorations.

The catering team was not to be outdone, the menu was just as amazing and extremely delicious.

And of course the cake - which was actually amazing spice, chocolate and vanilla cupcakes - looked fantastic.
