Jen & Mike Get Hitched

I love weddings. Have I said that before?

As expected, Jen and Mike’s wedding was wonderful (beautiful, romantic, and fun), but the reason I enjoyed it so much is because I could tell how totally in love the two of them are. It was so sweet to watch, it actually brought tears to my eyes on more than one occasion, and I’m not typically a crier at weddings.

The pre-wedding festivities started bright and early with hair and makeup for the bridal party at Jen’s parents’ house.

Once our hair and makeup was finished, it was time for champagne. Hey, it was 5 o’clock somewhere!

Then, it was time for the bride’s hair, which, of course, was much more fun with a glass of champagne!

Veil time!

This is when Jen started to get really excited about her big day!

Putting on the veil always makes it real, doesn’t it?

A little while later, the flowers arrived.

And then we were back on the trolley toasting to the newly married couple!

The reception, held at The Algonquin Club of Boston, started with a cocktail hour followed by dinner.

Old friends! Mal and I sat at the “Oak Square” table during dinner. I think about half of the table lived at 647 Washington Street at one point or another.

The food at the reception was so delicious: poached pear salad with crumbled gorgonzola and walnuts, filet mignon with asparagus and potatoes, sugar cookies and chocolate-mocha cake.

Cake cutting!

At the end of the night, Jen and Mike took a horse and carriage ride through the streets of Boston to their hotel.

Adorable, right?

It was such a nice wedding, and I’m so glad I was able to celebrate with Jen and Mike. I can’t wait to see them when they return from their honeymoon next week.

Question of the Day

Do you cry at weddings?

36 Comments

  1. I haven’t been to many weddings. The last one was a few weeks ago and I teared up a bit but didn’t cry. The last wedding before that was when I was in 2nd grade!! What’s up with my friends anyway? LOL

    I love white roses for weddings. They just look so elegant.

  2. I have never cried at weddings before, until my own, I cried through the whole thing! It was just such a happy and emotional time and seeing my husband smiling at me, I just couldn’t stop 🙂

  3. Yep, I cry even when I don’t know the couple. You looked beautiful! I’ve always wanted to be a bridesmaid..I am in my mid 40’s so I think my chances are slim to have that experience but it’s on my bucket list incase it ever happens!

  4. I went to my sorority big sis’s wedding on Saturday night and definitely teared up. Seeing your close friends so happy and being able to share in that joy is pretty much the best thing ever.

    That blue dress is really pretty!

  5. I had to do a doubletake on that picture of you & Jen. The flowers behind you make it look like you have a HUGE flower arrangement in your hair! lol
    What a fun, fun wedding! 🙂

  6. For a second I thought that bouquet was part of your hairdo in the picture of you & Jen – that would have been hilarious! Luckily it was a bus decoration 🙂
