warning! lots of wedding pictures!
The day was perfect inspite of the wind and some clouds from Irene! she really did us a favor, because I really thought that the weather was perfect and that the lake was GORGEOUS! the waves were beautiful! so from my perspective, thank you Irene (but in regards to the havac you caused else where.. .shame on you!)
YOu may need to click on these pictures, because blogger usually chops of the right sides of them when they are large. Jen and Tonys wedding really was perfect. I have no clue how many people actually came, but the place was packed!
Im so glad that we had this beautiful enclosed pavillion. there were Lots of double doors and windows that could be opened, but the wind coming off the lake made us keep them mostly closed. However the pavillion also acted as a barrier and blocked the wind for us on the other side! Perfectly!
I think everything turned out well and we had lots of compliments. There was tons of food and chicken and actually quite a bit left over. I didnt want to bring it home so what I couldnt talk people into taking.. I threw away! (very wasteful I know.. but I just couldnt deal with it!)
we had bbq chicken, salt potatos, baked ziti, baked beans, tossed salad, strawberry pretzel dessert, rosa marina and rolls. as well as tons of fruit, cheese and crackers, nuts and candy, LOTS of cookies, rye bread and dip, all sorts of chips and of course cupcakes!
I'm pretty sure that Jen and Tony enjoyed their day and I think their guests did too!
The cupcakes were so good! and so pretty! and we had so many left! people left with out having any... I have a big plate full in the kitchen even after giving a bunch away! umm.. not complaining though, I like eating them! I have a bunch of cookies too! but (lol.. as soon as they are gone...) I'm going on a diet!
The music man.. thats what I kept calling him ( he probably thought I was obnoxious!) did a good job playing a lot of old frank sinatra, tonys (the groom tony.. theres too many tonys!) favorite! and then they had karaoke! It was fun watching and listening to all the singers.
So many of Jens friends do musicals and theatre and are great performers! Anyone who left early missed out on a lot of fun when they really started getting into it.
Did I mention the lake yet?? it was perfectly awesome!
Tony and Jen released a big bunchof balloons on the beach!
The water was a bit cold and it was closed for swimming... hmmm.. I wonder why!?
Isnt my baby Torry pie freaken cute?!
This is a picture of my stepgranddaughter Ella! She is beautiful!
I have to admit that by the time we were done for the night I could seriously barely walk!
I was exhausted! But it was all worth it. Jen was happy and thats what the day was all about!
She had a good time doing karaoke with tonys sisters, whom I LOVE!
Oh GEEZ... look at these two OLD farts!
This picture of tony trupo, Jen and step grandson Carson is my favorite of the day!
no, maybe this one is..
I dont know.. there are so many! I also uploaded about 70 of them onto flickr. I cant wait to see the ones the photographer took!
Carson and Ella.. arent the adorable!?
Gert and Torry.. Poor Torry was cold. He liked HOT weather! It was definitely cool enough for long sleeves or sweatshirts. Not for me though. I loved the coolness of the day!
Just like this picture of our friends. for some reason it makes me laugh.
Aww.. Two of my favorite peoples.. Beths boyfriend and my Tonys girlfriend..
I have a video of Tony and Jen singing this.. they are doing Meatloafs song.. will you love me forever..
I loved it.
I ate alot of these... and have alot left over.. that I've been munching on today while Ive been RECOVERING!!
And at midnight last night I was having decafe tea and a cupcake while I tried to unwind!
well thats all folks.. if you want to see the rest I think you can click on any of them and go to my flickr.. or just use my flickr bar.. where ever it is on the right over there!
I need to go look at some of that left over chicken and think about dinner...
