Nuptials Weekend, October 17-20, 2013

It’s official! Jamie and I tied the knot this past weekend, celebrating with an event filled few days with family and friends.  We got so lucky with 4 days of great weather in Windham, New York.  Jamie and I arrived very early and had a few days to chill out with my parents. We tied up some loose ends for the party weekend, played a round of golf and then moved into our rental house.

Jamie’s parents came up early on Wednesday afternoon so with them and my parents the 6 of us had a really nice dinner out at Vesuvio’s in Windham.  The following day, Thursday, would be the start of our weekend festivities.  Our goal was to offer a weekend getaway for our family and friends and then toss in some nuptials some where in the middle.  I think we accomplished our goals to provide a fun and relaxing weekend away!  We started with an open house Thursday night at our rental pad for anyone arriving early.  These are the pictures from Thursday.

Thursday night was definitely a blast!! But Friday was the big day.  Prior to the nuptials beginning at 5:00pm, everyone who was in town relaxed during the day, went hiking, or hung out in the town of Windham.  We started with the cocktail hour outside on the patio at Ski Windham.  It was chilly and a bit windy but not too bad with the heat lamps and a fire pit!

The next day, Saturday, we planned for a golf outing for about 20 of us.  Everyone else scattered around the Catskill Mountains for various activities but most ended up at the Hunter Mountain Wine and Brew Festival which was only about 20 minutes from Windham.

That evening, following the festival and the golf outing, we all met up at 5:30 at the Windham Country Club where we hosted a BBQ dinner.  It was a low key night for most of us as many of us were still recovering from Friday night!!

We couldn’t just end it here, we had to host one more party! A Sunday brunch at our rental house to feed everyone before they take off on their journeys home.  Some close, some very far away.  Our friends and family traveled from NY, NJ, NC, FL, VA, RI, MA, ME, MD, PA, Ohio, Colorado, Brussels, and Australia!

One of the coolest surprises of the weekend was a gift from my sisters Tricia and Jenn and my brother-in-law Harold.  They found an online service that took our entire blog from our website www.wanderingtheplanet.net and converted it into a book! 410 pages, 73 chapters.  Every picture we ever took, every word we ever wrote on that blog is in this book for us to keep forever.  Amazing!

There are hundreds of more pictures! We plan to post more in the gallery of this blog and upload the rest to a Google Picasso album.

We want to thank our family and friends for your endless support and love throughout the years.  Jamie and I had an incredible time spending this special weekend with all of you!

We will continue blogging until we figure out where we will be living and what we will be doing!!
