Fall Weddings


This last weekend Dave and I attended the wedding of a good friend's daughter's wedding. (That's a lot of apostrophes!) The venue was a GORGEOUS country club in Andover called The Terradyne.

Dave and I got all gussied up. Here is a picture of us before we walked out the door.

The wedding was outside on the balcony.............right as the sun was going down. The temperature we perfect. Not too hot or cold. Here is a picture of the lovely bride and groom during the ceremony.

After the ceremony it was time for cocktail hour. We enjoyed lovely fresh fruit and veggie platters with our choices of wine, beer, tea, coffee or water.

Here are some pictures of the tables (notice the Chinese laterns and all the leaves and lights in the background), the wedding cake (It had 2 different flavors: Pumpkin spice with cream cheese icing and vanilla with buttercream icing) the grooms cake was chocolate with truffles and since the groom LOVES pumpkin pie there was also whipped cream served on top of the pie........and last but not least the CANDY BAR!

For our supper there was a buffet: Prime rib, stuffed mushrooms with crab meat, spinach dip with fresh made corn chips, chicken strips, smoky BBQ meatballs, quesidillas and several kinds of dipping sauce.

After the meal there was TONS of dancing. They hired a DJ and he was awesome.......so much so I got his card for future weddings........we do have 5 daughters you know!

Here is a picture that our friend Pat took of us at the reception. Tons of fun!! Not to mention tons of ideas for when we have to plan one of these!!
