Saturday did not start out so well but definitely improved as the day went on. Another fitful night of sleep left me rather groggy, but ready to start the day because I knew it would be a happy one.
I was off to my Weight Watchers meeting as usual. For my efforts this week I was rewarded with a quarter of a pound loss. Doesn’t sound like much, but as I used to tell my members when I was still leading WW classes, every loss no matter how small is a step in the right direction. I’m below goal, but I want to get back to where I was before vacation. I have not gotten back into my routine yet, although you’d think a month would be enough time for it. Monday I take the steps (literally) to get myself back on track.
But enough talk about me…how about another Wedding!!
The wedding was held in the wonderful town of Haddonfield. It is a charming OLD town filled with beautiful houses, wonderful shops and much tradition. The wedding was held at the Haddon Fortnightly
I had to snag the photo from their website because there was no way I was getting my own photo. Pouring rain laced with snowflakes was what greeted us on our arrival.
Beautiful Fall decorations.
Ralph, my sister Ele and Bill, Father of the Bride. Bill is Ele’s brother-in-law.
The groom, Matt, waits nervously with his best man.
Here comes the Bride, Crissy! She was so beautiful!
Who gives this woman…
Dearly beloved…One wonderful thing about the ceremony is that it was performed by Matt’s Dad, Pastor Bob. It was wonderfully emotional and he had a hard time getting through a few pieces of the ceremony. We got the chance to get to know the Pastor at the reception and he’s a great guy. Get him to tell you his story about driving his ’57 Chevy on the NJ Turnpike…hysterical!!
You may kiss the Bride!
Time for photos!!
Ele with Crissy…they have a very special bond.
Crissy and Matron of Honor, Lisa taking a break and sharing a laugh before the reception.
Crissy and Matt with Matt’s parents. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a photo of the Happy Couple with Crissy’s parents.
Ele with her sister-in-law, Judy, Mother of the Bride. They have always been very close. They’ve always looked like sisters to me!
Billy, brother of the Bride, Ele and Bill, Father of the Bride.
Judy and Bill, Mother and Father of the Bride. Getting Bill to cooperate for a photo is a major undertaking. Judy’s good at dealing with him…she’s been doing it for 41 years!
Cutting the cake…
Ceremonial feeding of the cake. No cake smashing for them!
Oh, yes…the Cake…where is it?!? Well as with the wedding I attended two weeks ago, I think I’ll save all of the goodies from the wedding for What I Ate Wednesday. Makes it more festive I think. For the moment I’ll just say it was delicious, very vegetarian friendly thanks to the Bride’s Mom, Judy and I was in pain when I finished!
To Crissy and Matt…the very best of luck to you! We love you both!
Now for a day filled with Birthday Parties!!
