So my brother’s wedding reception was this past Saturday out in Stuyvesant Falls, NY. The actual ceremony itself was held Wednesday during the Summer Solstice which also happened to be the day it got up to 95 degrees outside. The outdoor wedding made the heat quite unbearable, so the jackets were ditched and after the vows we all changed into more comfortable, weather appropriate attire for a family BBQ.
Saturday was the big day, with all the family members coming out to see the beautiful homemade place settings, take a ceremonial walk through the woods to see where the exchange of vows took place earlier, try some home-brewed beer, and dance the night away. After supper we were met with several surprises including an ice cream truck and even a spectacular fire works display. According to the guests my best man speech was very well received, so I felt good about upholding my brotherly duties. All in all it was a fantastic couple of days, albeit filled with the occasional wedding stress which it to be expected. For now, the Mrs. and I are glad to be home for some R&R from our R&R. Check out some photos from the festivities after the jump.
