A Wedding Day...

We hadn't been to a wedding in ages! Yesterday we attended our old neighbors (outside the city) son's wedding. It was a lovely affair, though the weather could have been a wee bit nicer out. At least it wasn't raining! 8-)

First photo is of the Mr & Mrs coming out of the church, bagpiper and all... 8-) Then we were off to the reception...

A pic of the wonderful meal that we had. Good old perogies, cabbage rolls, mashed potatoes, carrots, caesar salad, meatballs, chicken, roast, and all the trimmings...



And for desert, cut up fruit, angel food cake, and mini marshmallow, all to be dipped into a chocolate fondu. Yes you read right, a chocolate fondu!!! On each table! Mmmmmm....... 8-)





And then, just because your children are all together, they revert back to childish fun, by roasting their mini marshmallows over the tiny tea-lights that graced the table... 8-)




After the meal and speeches we have the happy couple doing their first dance as Mr & Mrs...


Then we have our dear friends/neighbors dancing when the parents join in...




And the daughter/sister dancing with her wedding party partner, the bride's brother...



Our DD1 doing a polka with her Daddy. The only dancing our family did that night. DH wanted to go up for a slow dance with me, but I declined. Harsh hey!? But I told him that I would dance a slow dance with him if he dances other dances with me... it didn't happen... as usual!!! .... I love dancing... 8-(



New Mr & Mrs doing the cutting of the cake...







And here are our 2 daughters posing with the friend's daughter. They played together as pre-schoolers when we all first met. Time sure flies by quickly... Now the first one of our families, their son, is married... 8-)

And finally, a photo of my DH and myself. Though you can't really tell on this pic, I did my hair for the event, of course, and my son even commented on it!!! That is a shocking thing since he barely notices anything, or things that go on around him most times...

We had a wonderful time sharing this momentous day with our dear friends. We pray for all things good for S & S's new life together...

And now, to add something on the quilting end of things, I direct you to Coffee-time Quilt Studio to see an adorable children's quilt I found while viewing blogs this morning...
