A Long Island Wedding

Wednesday, October 15th, 2008

So Kelly and Cliff got married this past weekend. It was wedding number three for us in the past three months, but what a wedding it was.

This one was in on Long Island and we decided to drive there. Sure it was 400 miles and 8 hours away, but it was cheaper and less stressful to drive than to fly. The ceremony was in a neat little church about an hour drive away from the reception which was close to the hotel they got a block of rooms in. They had a shuttle between the reception and the hotel which was awesome, once they got their acts together. The shuttle to the reception was supposed to leave at 6pm and there were about 7 of us waiting for it. There were two wedding blocks at the hotel both with shuttles to their receptions at different times. Their shuttle was at 5:30 while ours was at 6. Apparently people from the other reception got on our shuttle without bothering to find out where it was going and it left early probably because it was full. So once the hotel manager figured out what happened, they put us on one of the other buses to drop us off at our reception and pick up all the losers who ended up at the wrong reception and take them to the right place.

When I think about that reception, only one word comes to mind: food. The food was absolutely amazing. For cocktail hour there was this huge room packed with hors d'oeuvres. They had all the usual finger food and just about everything else. They had a carving station with different meats, they had a seafood table, I had a couple lamb popsicles, some caviar and a few pieces of star-fruit. Everyone was stuffed before dinner was even served. For dinner I picked at a fantastic fillet mignion. They also offered stuffed shrimp, some portobello thing and some pasta dish. When it was time for dessert, we went back into the cocktail hour room and it was stuffed with desserts. They had a coffee station with different coffees, liquors and toppings (including chocolate covered spoons). They had cookies, stuffed things, fruit, flaming fruit (served on ice cream), a bunch of mousses, a chocolate fountain, wedding cake and tons of other stuff. It was like entering that room at the beginning of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

We are in Rhode Island, Providence area for a wedding this weekend. Spending a few extra days visiting the area, and then on sunday we head over to Newport for a few days. We spent all day yesterday walking around Providence and then did the ghost tour at night, my legs are killing me. The picture by the pool looks good.

Yeah that shot was done by the professional. I had to steal it from the wedding website, so it's kind of low quality. Sounds like you had a fun time in providence...

It has not been a bad trip overall. we are in Newport right now and decided to head back tomorrow..a day early, because it is going to rain up here all day tomorrow and Robert has to work on friday, so he wants a day of rest. We have done a lot. But we can say that the drivers and the signs in Rhode Island are FAR WORSE than NJ. He has lost his patience too many times with those things, and has had enough.
