Yes, Geo and I are officially
The groom was decked out in khakis, a Polo shirt, and a tweed-like sport coat (which he promptly ditched after the "I do"s). I wore my medieval inn-keeper's wife dress (at least that's what I refer to is as). It's a plain maroon floor length long sleeve dress. Nothing fancy. I wanted to look decent yet feel comfortable. The dress fit the bill.
My mom was the perfect hostess. I was pleasantly shocked that she held to my wishes and kept everything low-key.
It was a very relaxed atmosphere. There were all of 16 guests ... perfect. We had some snackies before the shin-ding and deli-meat lunch tray from Al's Corner Deli at Torresdale Avenue and Rhawn Street in the NE. The poor meat-tray didn't have a chance. It was g-o-n-e within thirty minutes. I was lucky to get a taste of the potato and macaroni salad before that too evaporated. The cake was from some bakery that shall remain nameless. I don't believe in slander unless totally justified. Normally this bakery, who is famous for their pound cake in NE Philly, does a good job. However, on this occasion, the cake was dry and quite forgetful. I smiled and choked a piece down for my mom's sake. She was so excited when she ordered it and I didn't want to disappoint her. Least we forget the champagne toast by the best man (who was decked out in his best black jeans). It was my kind of affair and I loved it.
I promise to post pictures soon. They are on Geo's laptop so I need to transfer them to mine.
So ... more to come!
