Any excuse for a party
When was the last time you had a really good time at a wedding? For us it was just a week ago and the party started two days before the ceremony and continued on through brunch the following day. My guess is that no one had any trouble falling asleep on Sunday night. We were in Rockport, MA where our guesthouse was right across from the beach you see here at sunset. Elaine and Fred, parents of the bride, were the first to stop by to enjoy a glass of champagne on our front porch and to take in the view. Later we saw Lynn, then Lucy, met up with Pam, Al, and a delightful group of new friends including folks from France and Germany.
The ceremony, held in a beautiful state park with a view out to sea, was followed by an unbelievable party that featured signature cocktails, beers including one brewed by the groom himself, wines, plus hot and cold hors d’oeuvres served on silver platters. The first course was steamed mussels and bowls of clam chowder with a good ‘ole lobster bake not far behind. There was no doubt that we were in New England! Even dessert fit the theme with apple cider donuts.
I think that everyone was especially impressed with the attire of the wedding party. The groomsmen were in navy blue suits while the bridesmaids blue dresses can easily be worn to other events without fear of looking like a prom dress. Even bride Brenna will look stunning in her gown at the next awards ceremony where she will be the proud recipient, I’m sure.
Good luck Brenna and Eric, congratulations Elaine and Fred, and thanks to all of you for a fantastic party! By the way, I hear that the south of France is a wonderful honeymoon spot….
