Michelle and Gilbert's Wedding

Where to begin? My little sister got married this weekend. Like her, the wedding was beautiful and unique. The reception took place at Warner Farm in East Banana Peel, I mean Cummington, MA...

The ceremony took place in Northampton (My sister insists that it is 20 minutes from Northampton to Cummington. If you're ever in the area, I would give yourself at least 35. Trust me on this, we missed our manicure appointment, were late for the rehearsal, late for our hair appointment and the wedding ceremony that was supposed to start at 1:30, started a touch after 2:00) It was 95 degrees and soooo humid....made my Spanx feel like a little slice of hell, but I kept them on...I'm so vain (fat). On the way back to the farm, the sky opened up and it poured. The temperature dropped 23 degrees and by the time we all go to the reception, the rain had stopped and it was much cooler and much more enjoyable.

After taking pictures, Gil's dad played bag pipes as the bridal party walked up a dirt road to join the celebration. It was still misty from the rain, and well, well it was really cool. The food was wonderful, the drink plentiful, and their was a live Irish Band that rocked! I heard that there was a bonfire after the band finished...but I was in bed...(Not drunk, not at all, who has time for drinking when you are carrying a baby in a mei hip and making sure that your three year old hasn't disappeared into the woods?) like I was saying, not drunk, just completely exhausted.

Sooo, Michelle and Gil I love you both very much. You are two of the most wonderful people that I know and I am confident that you will have a wonderful life together.
