The wedding was great last night!
The setting was just gorgeous. They got married in a small church downtown and then the reception was at a yacht club (they rented out the whole club)—outside by the water. There were fireworks, good food, open bar, dancing….all the lovely things you expect from a springtime wedding! I started the night by having a cosmo when we arrived at the reception. Cosmos are my drink of choice when I need to look classy and wine isn’t appropriate (snazzy cocktail parties). While I was sipping on my cosmo though I saw that the bartender was making mojitos!!! So, after the cosmo I had one of those and it was great. That pretty much concludes my drinking night because after that I stuck to club soda. I can really only have two sweet drinks, not because it makes me get drunk, but because it will give me a headache! I feel wonderful this morning though and I attribute that to stopping while I was ahead.
Yelling at Ryan for blowing cigar smoke in my face!
Love those candid shots! The girls got chocolates as “party favors” and the guys got cigars…haha
I skipped out on the meat filled apps that were floating around the pool area and instead got a plate of fruit (pineapple and strawberries–not photoed) to have with my drink. Dinner was a buffet, which I was very pleased about because I could bypass the stuffed chicken entree and instead fill my plate with rice, steamed vegetables, bread and salad with raspberry vinegrette. It was actually very good. I think we ended up eating around 8:30 and around 10:30 I was hungry again while on the dance floor so I ate the emergency larabar in my purse. Glad I had that! We ended up getting home around midnight, opting for sleep instead of the afterparty at the bride and groom’s house down the street. Today we have another busy day ahead of us because we are headed over to St.Pete to go out on the boat for the morning, have a bbq with friends and then go to the Rays/Red Sox game (sitting in a box with our friends! fun!). I’m thinking about picking up some veggie burgers to bring to the bbq.
For breakfast I had another big bowl of steel cut oats with almond butter and banana. Ready to go be in the sun now!
ps- the bride and groom are leaving tomorrow for their honeymoon in French Polynesia!!! How jealous are we??!!
