I LOVE love

by Nicole on September 27, 2010

Hello, I am alive and well, I swear! I’m really well, just REALLY tired.

I have so much to post about and it will all eventually get written. So far I’ve been sleepwalking through the day… in the most awake kind of way. I’m not even going to joke about sleep walking too much, considering I did have an encounter with Danny sleepwalking Saturday night at 4 am. Let’s just say it involving a lot of yelling, tripping, falling (him not me) and a minor scrape. I won’t get into it, but it wasn’t pretty.

Sleepwalking, for both him and me happened because this weekend was one of my very best pal’s weddings. I had 2 very special (well 3 if you count my mom) weddings in the past 2 months and 1 more to go. Lauren and John have been together for 8 years and met at PC. It is a true love story, and if you know anything about me, you would know I LOVE true love. If you didn’t know that about me, you would have after spending the weekend with me because I repeated it probably 8,349 times over the course of my crying out of joy 123 times.

Just Married!

It was an amazingly beautiful ceremony, wedding, reception, rehearsal and everything else. Their personal touches were all over the wedding from the place cards, to the Providence College mascot that came running out in the middle of the wedding, to the ice cream sandwiches that were served as dessert. The 5 of us bridesmaids (well 4, with 1 matron of honor!) all had different dresses from different designers. Lauren hand picked them each for us. We picked our own shoes from a huge selection she sent us.

3 different sandwiches (and my new TB clutch)


All Different Bridesmaid Dresses

The wedding was at the Watch Hill Chapel in Watch Hill, RI. (The invitations to the rehearsal dinner were postcards from Watch Hill!) The reception was at the Shelter Harbor Golf Club in Westerly, RI. It was under a tent, which was spectacular. The cocktail hour looked over the golf course and served amazing appetizers of swordfish in a cone, mini grilled cheese sandwiches, pulled pork on crackers and tomato soup among other things.

The reception food was also incredible. There were 3 choices of entrees: fried free range chicken, grass fed beef burgers or goat cheese and veggie stuffed strudel. There were also family style side dishes in the middle of the table: wilted chard, green salad, french fries, macaroni and cheese and corn bread. I had the veggie stuffed strudel and tried all of the side dishes. Then…..came the dessert. Lauren and John was their own cake with honker toppers, and then the dessert was 3 different ice cream sandwiches with different cookies/brownie and different ice cream. I ate most of the 3 and it was worth every single bite.

mostly all eaten up food

Cake Cutting

The wedding party stayed in the cottages where the party didn’t end. We danced the night away with not only the PC friar, but the shake weight too. Did you know it’s a perfect party accompaniment??? Why I don’t have any pics of anyone with the shake weight is just beyond me.  A perfect time was had by all… true love, friends, food and music = an unforgettable night!
