• Blain & Jaime’s Wedding

    June 19, 2011

    Yesterday was such a whirlwind, but a fun whirlwind! After attending the Saratoga Brewfest, a friends’ wedding was next on our agenda.

    The church were the ceremony was held was only about 15 minutes away from the brewfest, so Mal and I changed into our nice clothes in the parking lot and drove straight there. (We’re classy like that.)

    Our friends Blain and Jaime got married at a beautiful Catholic church.

    The bride was absolutely stunning! Jaime’s grandfather walked her down the aisle.

    Vows.

    The reception had movie theme to it! So fun!

    During the cocktail hour, I munched on a ton of appetizers. I was starving!

    After drinking beer all afternoon, I decided not to drink at the reception. I just wasn’t feeling the booze. (I know, I’m as surprised as you are!)

    Even still, Mal and I had a blast at the wedding!

    For dinner, we enjoyed a Farm & City Salad, which was made with baby field greens, sharp cheddar cheese, walnuts, Granny Smith apple slices, and a honey Dijon vinaigrette. I definitely want to recreate this salad at home.

    For my entrée, I had the Sirloin Steak, which was served with horseradish mashed potatoes and asparagus. I also ate a piece of wedding cake, but I never snapped a photo of it. It was marble cake with strawberry filing, buttercream frosting, and it was totally to die for!

    With the happy couple!

    I’m so glad we were able to celebrate Blain and Jaime’s big day with them. They’re the best!!

    @Tiffany: it was a bunch of wedding scenes from movies that we edited – everything from “muppets take manhattan” to “the princess bride.” then, for the “ceremony” we had charlie chaplin “marry” us using title cards.

    If you’re going to do sleeves, capped sleeves are the way to go. Unless you’re Kate Middleton. Then you can do a turtle neck and still look gorgeous!

    What a beautiful wedding! That church looks so impressive and what a neat theme for the reception. I’ve heard of some pretty “out-there” wedding themes, but this one sounds really fun!

    Love when Upstate New York gets some loving… I live about 3 hrs from Saratoga, but normally when you tell anyone you live in New York..they automatically assume NYC. Upstate New York is a beautiful place to live!
