I promised you guys I would write about Kerri and Matt’s wedding. So here it is!
The wedding was on Saturday. What a beautiful day it was for a wedding! Seriously, perfect weather.
The wedding was in Rhode Island. The church ceremony was in Coventry, and the reception was in West Greenwich at Whispering Pines, technically a part of the URI campus I guess. It was beautiful there! We had to drive through this windy road in the middle of the woods to get to the reception. It was in the middle of nowhere, but it was so pretty right by the water and the scenic outdoor views!
The overnight guests stayed in these little lodges all spread throughout the campus. This was the view from our lodge:
The reception was held at the main building/conference center. The cocktail hour and DJ were set up on a spacious outdoor deck, so all the dancing and everything except for the sit down dinner was held outside. It was the perfect time of year for that – not too hot or buggy on the outdoor deck but still early enough into fall that we weren’t freezing outside either.
Some pictures of Tim & I on the deck:
Note: New dress! H&M, $35. Score.
FOOD & DRINKS
The food was good! I especially love cocktail hours at weddings. Honestly, who doesn’t love free food literally being handed to you?
A sampling (but not even close to the amount) of what I ate:
For the main course: Bread, Salad, and I got the filet!
I drank (a lot) of Pinot Noir and blonde beers. I was dancing too much to have dessert!
CUTE WEDDING PICTURES OF KERRI & MATT
There were a ton of us coworkers at the wedding, and we had a blast!!
There are a LOT more, but I’ll save those for my Facebook page.
One cool part of this wedding was that after the reception was over, everyone headed over to the campfire set up as part of the lodging and brought beers etc and just hung out. Except me because I fell asleep curled up in one of the chairs and missed the whole thing! Way to be lame, Athena. Either way, I thought this was a really cool feature that the venue offered.
In the morning, we had complimentary breakfast.
On my plate: Scrambled eggs, fruit, and a blueberry pancake. Let’s just say it was good breakfast but didn’t settle well with me.
On the way home from the wedding, Tim and I went on a mission to find Del’s Lemonade. Since Del’s was a staple of my Providence College days and Tim’s Bryant days, we love getting it when in Rhode Island. We actually weren’t far from the Bryant campus so we stopped to get some there.
Del’s = The perfect hangover cure. We spent some time just enjoying the quiet campus (I forgot nobody gets up before 11am on Sunday mornings in college!), pretty day, and nice view from this picnic bench. Do you think the few college students that were up and at em were wondering why there were two old people just sitting there?? Looking oh so great?
Congratulations Kerri & Matt!!
