27 January 2008

We had such a great Saturday. We started off at Arundel Mills Mall for some shopping therapy. Emily had gift cards and wanted new clothes from American Eagle. Then it was back home for us and time to get prettied up. I did the hair and make-up, and after getting ready, we drove our neighbor and her date to the ceremony. Everything about the wedding was artfully done. Everyone gathered outside after the ceremony to watch white doves released. I've never witnessed that before. Amazing. I wonder how they come back. I'm gonna Google that. It was absolutely freezing and the women in the bridal party and the bride wore sleeveless gowns! Because we live close to the church, we were able to come home for about 90 minutes before leaving for the reception. There were heavy appetizers including mini Beef Wellington, coconut shrimp, Maryland blue crab dip and antipasto. There was a full bar. We were seated in the grand ballroom at 6:00 for dinner. We were able to choose from Salmon Wellington, Filet and chicken and shrimp. I had ordered the Filet and Emily the chicken, but we switched. After dinner there was a chocolate fountain with bananas, strawberries, pineapple, marshmallow and sponge cake. They brought bowl to our tables with whipped cream, cinnamon sticks and rock candy sticks for our coffee. Then there was that beautiful blue cake. The music was fantastic. We sat at a table with our neighbors and literally danced the night away. It was a wedding to remember!

I'm not really a big fan of weddings, but I would definitely have enjoyed that reception.

I love a good wedding. I went to one just a few days after 9/11 and I don't think anything else helped me heal as much as witnessing someone else's love.

I'm so glad you and Emily had a good time. You both look gorgeous!

lovins,

It was so good to hear that the went went well. There is nothing better than having a great time with one's children. She looks so grown up and you two look so much alike .. especially in the almost matching dresses.

Glad you had a great time. :-)
