Teasers - Megan and Vincenzo

This weekend was just wonderful. Literally. Friday afternoon I left to pick up Lauren at work in Annapols and then we both drove down to Soloman's Island for Megan and Vincenzo's wedding. Friday was the first time I had met the bride and groom and they were just as delightful as I had imagined they would be. They are from Boston so all of our conversations prior to Friday had occurred on the phone. I'm sure there are many challenges with trying to plan a wedding from that far away, but they did an absolutely splendid job.

Friday evening was a big cookout for all of the out of town guests and members of the bridal party at Soloman's Yatching Center. It was perfect weather and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves.

This photo set the tone for me for the evening.

And they had these little guys. Yum.

The bride, Megan has a beautiful smile that is just contagious.

This is Massimo, the groom's hysterical brother on the corn.

Loved the baskets of flowers.

There were a lot of folks from far out of town, I believe these are a few with the bride!

This guy had his sunglasses around his neck the whole 2 days I was there.

This photo is just awesome. It was when the sun was going down and the real party was about to begin. Groom is doing what he called the "scratch the leg." :-) But I didn't get that part, just this.

And earlier when I said the real party, what I meant by that is keg stands off the mini keg, pictured here:

And a whole 3 picnic table long flip cup.

Oh. And shotgunning beers. I loved every minute of it.

The next day was a pretty relaxing day for Lauren and I. We went to the Calvert Marine Museum after sleeping in a bit and wandering about the town.

We started with the groom and his groomsmen. We got so many shots of them. Soooo many that I haven't had time to go through them all. I went straight for the trolley photos and these are my two favorites. I'm sure that somewhere I have a photo of the groom not making a goofy face but these are so much more fun.

The reception was in this big and really nice room at the school that is connected to the church.

The bride's brother is overseas right now but called her right after the ceremony was over. Her mom had a photo enlarged to have at the reception.

The groom's sister is just awesome. She is super funny and great to be around.

There was a bit of a competition going on fo biggest party table between numbers 6 and 9. I honestly can't remember which one this is, but I think it's 9.

Once dinner was over and the bride and groom had their first dance, the dance floor opened up. And man, I have never seen so many people jump out of their seats to dance. I loved it. This is the groom's mom teaching someone to do the Twist! He apparently wasn't shaking his butt enough.
