Happy Monday everyone! The end of a very, fun and busy weekend! One filled with friends celebrating the marriage of Luke and Amanda.
On Saturday, it was a beautiful sunny day for a wedding. In these parts, a winter wedding isn’t all that common because of the fear of having a blizzard on the day of your wedding. This past Saturday was the absolute PERFECT day to have a wedding.
Friday evening a dusting of show fell and on Saturday the bright sky and relatively warm temperature made for a wonderful wedding day.
The commute to the church was simple, just down the road at Wesley United. Dad was asked to play the piano for the wedding and I was asked to sing and so we both got AMAZING seats at the front of the church to watch the beautiful ceremony.
It was a great ceremony. Ryan and I met up with Mom and Dad for a before dinner cocktail and then headed to the reception hall.
I don’t mean to brag but I do think Ryan and I were seated at the BEST table! We all laughed and laughed throughout supper. Not to mention I think if there was an award for “best song with Love in the lyrics” our table would have totally taken it!
One of the highlights of my night was when Gary got everyone up singing The Coconut Song, a Young/MacKechnie Christmas eve tradition.
After supper and really funny, heart felt speeches the bride and groom danced to their first song as husband and wife.
Then Amanda joined her Dad for their dance.
And Luke with his Mom, Elizabeth for their dance.
The party REALLY got started then! The D.J was awesome and between dancing and visiting the night went by in a flash!
It really was a wonderful day and a great wedding. We (Ryan and I) are so happy for Luke and Amanda. Thank you for having us there to help you celebrate your marriage!
How was your weekend?
