Wedding in the Snow

January 16, 2010 at 6:12 pm 8 comments

Remember back in December when I went to a wedding and then it snowed? and snowed and snowed and snowed. Betcha thought I forgot to tell you about.

Ok I sorta did, but then I knew I’d be out of town for 5 days in January and it’d be the perfect time for a recap.

So here goes.

The bride and groom did just about everything for their wedding all on their own, and they did a fantastic job! When we got into town Thursday, we headed over to the church to help them set up and decorate. We decorated the mantel and window sills, arranged centerpieces, and moved quite a few tables and chairs.

We headed home, cleaned up, then went right back for the rehearsal. Once we learned the ropes, we headed to a wonderfully scrumptious dinner at Carrabba’s Italian Grill. I had a bowl of tomato soup to warm up, followed by a delicious piece of grilled Norwegian salmon. I also had a glass of their house red wine, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. For dessert they brought an assortment of their bacino- “little kisses”. As soon as the waiter said tiramisu, I grabbed it!


The next day was the wedding. It turned out beautifully. Like a romantic rustic ski lodge at Christmastime.

The food was an amazing Italian market display, with plenty of antipasto. The wedding cake was three tiers of cupcakes- half red velvet and half chocolate raspberry.


The whole wedding party:


My mom thought it was funny I was drinking a beer. (I guess you’re supposed to be a little classier in a full length gown??)


Such a beautiful space. The wedding was quite small, but the space was perfect to make it feel full and cozy.


And now my tribute to the cupcakes:

(We ended up taking all the extras home for the bride and groom to pick up later….I enjoyed quite a few. Remarkable. Really. What is it about cupcakes that makes them so darn adorable, and so much better than plain ol cake?!)

Then the bride and groom danced the night away…


The bride’s only wish was for snow to fall on her wedding day.

Between the last dance and the newlywed’s exit, the flurries began to fall.

And didn’t stop for 23 inches.

Be careful what you wish for on your wedding day. You might just get it. And lots of it!!

Congrats E & J!!!!!

    What a beautiful wedding!

    Those cupcakes look amazing. I think cupcakes are better than cakes as well – I think there is more frosting on cupcakes and who doesn’t love frosting!
