Last night, I went to Jen’s wedding rehearsal and dinner. Both went really well, and it was great to see Jen enjoying herself so much. She’s really excited for the big day, but she’s also one of the most laid-back brides I’ve ever met, which is a fabulous combination for a bride-to-be, right?
At the church, the priest was really thorough and covered every little detail of the ceremony, so the rehearsal took more than hour, but we all know exactly what to do come Saturday afternoon!
The rehearsal dinner was held immediately after at Maggiano’s Little Italy in Boston.
The groom’s parents hosted the dinner and reserved a private room downstairs.
The meal was served family-style and included lots of delicious Italian favorites.
I was a little worried about what would jive with my intestines, but everything worked out fine. No issues! Hooray!
Appetizers: spinach salad with fried calamari and a stuffed mushroom.
Main course: salmon and chicken parmesan.
The happy couple: Jen + Mike!
After dinner, the groomsmen received gifts. (Jen gave us ours at her bachelorette weekend.)
And then we heard a few words from the groom, the Best Man, Jen’s brother, and a few other family members. It was nice to hear from so many different people. Everyone is so happy for Jen and Mike.
And, of course, a couple of the speeches included some playful jokes and embarrassing stories about the bride and groom. Haha! Love it!
The evening concluded with dessert. I had a few bites of cheesecake. Delish!
Here I am with Jen and her Matron of Honor, Katelyn:
I can’t believe Jen’s wedding is TOMORROW! I seriously can’t wait to celebrate the big day with her and Mike!
