Congratulations Joe & Kate!!

by Courtney on June 6, 2010

Yesterday’s wedding was SUCH A BLAST!  I am so excited for the happy couple. :-D

After a quick but lovely ceremony, it was time to get the party started!! ;)  On our arrival to the cocktail hour, each guest was presented one of Joe & Kate’s signature drinks: Watermelon Mojito!  It was the perfect drink to start the night.

The cocktail hour had a delicious spread of fruits, veggies, cheeses, crackers, & some homemade garbage bread.  I LOVE garbage bread!!

I ended up snacking on some veggies, a couple crackers with brie (my FAVORITE) and a piece of garbage bread that was stuffed with sausage and peppers.  It was amazing!  I also got myself a glass of pinot grigio which was by one of my favorite brands, Robert Mondavi.  The pinot was thoroughly enjoyed throughout the evening. ;)

Ok, so you’re probably wondering which dress was the winner, right?  Welllll…I’ll get to that in a second…I’m going to leave you all in suspense a little longer! ;)

For dinner, there was a fabulous buffet catered, again, by our friend Brad.  By the time we ate, I was pretty much starving, hence the reason my plate looks like it could feed a small army.

The pasta primavera was my favorite out of everything.  It had great flavor and I was very excited when I saw sun-dried tomatoes in the mix of veggies!  I didn’t eat much of the chicken, since it wasn’t my favorite, but the rest of the plate was delish!

A little while after dinner, it was time for CAKE (also one of my favorite parts of a wedding!)  It was a simple yellow cake with buttercream frosting, but it was out of this world!  I was quite excited to see that our table got served the vanilla cake, because I did see chocolate floating around too…but I’m a vanilla gal. I had no problem dominating my piece. :)

Ok, so now onto the big question…WHICH DRESS DID I WEAR?!?!

DRESS #1!!! :-D While they were both beautiful, I knew I’d be more comfortable in the red, and I completely fell in love with the neckline of this one.  I’m very happy with my choice!

So now I will leave you with some pictures from the night…and I’m sure you will notice that some shenanigans definitely started taking place as the night went on!

Me & my Brother Dan

Oh my God…. This is SO random. I was just reading your post and jumped up because I recognized your brother Dan. He was a year older than me in high school! Columbia? hahaha. That is hilarious. Did you go there as well?

What a small world!

Hahaha, how funny! Yep, Columbia it was…I graduated in 2002.
Talk about a small world! :)
