Labor Day weekend is usually when Brett and I head up to Syracuse for the GREAT New York State Fair.
Since both of our boys were born in summer, we have missed the past two years, but thought that this year was going to be their first trip.
Our friend's Eric and Julia had other plans - their wedding!
Brett and I decided that we should be there, and hold off on the kids first fair trip for one more year.
Eric and Julia got married in Chantilly at an out door golf course ceremony.
The ceremony was preformed by Dwaine Darrah (the pastor of New Life Westmoreland) and was a really well done and beautiful service.
After the service there was a cocktail reception with a HUGE baked brie display (clearly, that was a BIG hit).
Once they opened the doors to the reception hall we were introduced to some of the other great touches that Julia and Eric had at their wedding, including cards for guests to leave advice.
Best of all they had a photo booth with dress up clothes and funny props (we don't have pictures of that because they were done by the professionals).
After some sill picture taking we sat down for dinner, and a slide show of the bride and groom.
As well as speeches:
Then the band started! They had hired a really fun mo-town type band. we had a great time dancing, but it was Julia and her brother who stole the show:
Later they did the requisite cutting of the cake (which we were shocked wasn't a little messier):
After hours of mingling and dancing the night away, we bid the couple farewell and called it a night. Congrats to Julia and Eric, and thank you for having us at your lovely (and super fun) wedding!
