CT adventures...

I had such a great time in CT. Seriously, it was just perfect. Pretty much all of our significant others couldn't attend due to the cost of travel so it was pretty much a girls (long) weekend which was awesome.

Thursday night was the bachelorette party which was a great time. Dinner and dancing at the club. Although, at the club I had to provide a back-up form of identification. The bouncer said it was because I had an out state license but so did 6 others in our group and none of them had too. I know, I know, one day I'll appreciate looking young.

No pictures from the bachelorette party but I had a fabulous time with the girls. We got home from the party a little after midnight (because that was when we could get a shuttle back to the hotel) and then we stayed up talking until 4 eek.

Friday was rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. One of our friends from divinity school preformed the ceremony and the rehearsal was very efficient 32 minutes a record! I have high hopes that when I preform weddings my rehearsal will also be swift.

Me and two of my very best friends from div. school

And the four of us. The bride is in the green. Some of my dearest and most treasured friends. These three are god parents to my children.
Such a pretty cupcake. The flower however not edible. Want to know how I know? I took a bite, it was Styrofoam. Awesome 

And cider. The only drink I like. This picture was mostly for my west coast friends who think I'm making up such things. 

We stayed up talking friday night until 3am after we got back to the hotel from the reception. Not a lot of sleeping happening.

Then of course saturday was the big day and it was so beautiful.  A perfect fall wedding in Connecticut. Everything about it was just perfection.

The view from the reception site. So beautiful.

Me and sandra. I love this picture.

Someone in the group was inspired by the brick wall. 

The center pieces. 

Cocktails before dinner. 

Delicious food. 

All the ladies from grad school with the bride. (I look so incredibly short I always feel much taller than I actually am). 

The bride. The beer was all home brewed.  
Beautiful reception site. Perfect for a fall wedding in CT. 

Everything was so beautiful. 

The happy groom and bride. 

The pie (in lieu of cake) baked at a local orchid. 

More group photos.

I loved the fall decor. 

So perfect. 

I had the best time. I can't wait until we all get together again.

It looks like you had an awesome time: It was certainly a beautiful weekend!

I'm with you on the hard cider...not much I like to drink, but I do like hard cider (preferably Bulmer's on tap).
