What a great wedding to end the year on! Yes, it was very cold & very windy, but the rain stayed away & the party lasted well into the night. Even though they were on a tight schedule, everyone was so ready to have fun. Mary Alice's bridesmaids were the most amazing cheering section & I wanted them to follow me around all night giving me compliments! Oh, to be surrounded by friends like that! It's the best.
The Bella Donna Chapel was one of the most romantic venues I've been to. A beautiful Tuscany-style chapel on a little island? It couldn't have been much better! Oh, wait! It was Christmas! IT GOT BETTER!
Mary Alice & Riley wanted to pray together before the ceremony. If I hadn't have been shivering so much, I would have been balling my eyes out. Such a precious moment I witnessed!
To say Riley was beside himself with happinesnto finally marry Mary Alice is an understatement.
Can I count this as an overseas wedding? It really looks like we're not anywhere close the States.
This, ladies & gentlemen, is pure joy.
A quick change of venue & we were ready to party. The Stonebridge Country Club across the street was ready for our arrival with warm & delicious food & a large dance floor that was never empty.
The Shoe Game is always a great idea. I just wish I had captions for these photos!
The best way to end the night is sparklers!!
