Love is all around
Our friends Paul and Kate got married this past weekend and we just had the best time! Anthony was a groomsmen which meant we were able to celebrate with the bride and groom Friday AND Saturday night.
Friday's rehearsal dinner was at the delicious Ristorante Panorana at the Penn's View Hotel. The dinner took place in their Wine Cellar party room and was really cool.
Saturday was just beautiful. After dropping the girls off with my parent's for the rest of the weekend, I raced home to get myself ready to head to South Jersey for the ceremony and reception. They got married in the cutest little white church, Kate's family parish, and it looked like it was right out of a storybook. The guests were armed with bubbles (and plenty of them!) as the bride and groom exited the church as husband and wife.
The reception? Yes, it took place at the ballroom at the Camden Aquarium! Just before the bridal party was announced into the room, a black screen was raised at the back of the ballroom to reveal a shark tank with at least 20 sharks and another 50 or so assorted fish! It was pretty incredible! First for Anthony and I as a wedding reception locale and it was amazing!
