Friday totally got away from me. I had all of these great plans to cross things off of my To Do list– freelance work, blog updates, cleaning the house for Anne’s visit– but I don’t know where the time went!? Don’t ya hate that when it happens?
Before I knew it, Mal and I were driving to our friends’ wedding at The Villa, which was an absolutely gorgeous space for an event– both inside and out.
The wedding was officiated by the groom’s father just as the sun was about to set. It was perfect.
A cocktail hour and reception immediately followed the ceremony.
The appetizers during the cocktail hour were so fun! Among my favorites were cheeseburger sliders served with a shooter of Sam Summer beer and a mashed potato bar with all of the fixings. A mashed potato bar!?! How cool is that?
A little while later, it was time for dinner.
The theme of the reception was a “Tale of Two Cities” since the bride and groom are from Boston and Philadelphia respectively.
The table numbers, favors, and place cards all featured the skylines of the two cities.
Dinner started with a simple salad with balsamic vinaigrette.
For my entrée, I had the chicken, which was lightly breaded with a buttery caper sauce and green beans on the side.
And, of course, dessert included a big slice of wedding cake. I <3 buttercream frosting.
Mal and I spent the rest of the evening getting down on the dance floor. Good times!
This morning, I woke up thinking it was Sunday, but it’s only Saturday. Wahoo!! Friday night weddings rule for that reason.
What do you think of Friday night weddings?
