It all began with a beautiful outdoor ceremony at a golf and country club- and although we were getting a bit nervous with the forecast having anticipated rain all day, about 2 minutes prior to the ceremony beginning, the sun came out and the weather was beautiful. It was small and cozy, no more than about 75 friends and family members.
After the ceremony, we made our way indoors and enjoyed catching up with old friends over drinks and appetizers, all while watching the bride, groom and wedding party have their pictures taken.
Soon afterwards, the bride and groom joined us in the club, and were introduced prior to dinner as Mr. and Mrs.! To the theme song from Rocky, no less! Dinner was fantastic - soup and salad to start, then prime rib with garlic mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and steamed vegetables. For dessert, NY style cheesecake served with fresh strawberries.
We finished off the night dancing to everything from "Brown Eyed Girl" to "Thriller" (including all the Wacko Jacko dance moves), while taking pictures and stuffing our faces at the midnight dessert trolley - boy, that chocolate mousse sure was good!
The new couple looked beautiful together and we had a fantastic night. I wish them all the best as they begin their new life together...
