Richele and I headed East to Boston and Vermont the first weekend of August to attend Matt and Antonia’s wedding. We flew into Boston late on Wednesday, 7/30/08, and crashed at Arrin’s house in Cambridge. The following day, we groggily made our way sightseeing through Boston despite the high temps and humidity. Fortunately, we were able to enjoy a few cold beers at Cheers during the heat of the day! Later that night, we drove up to Salem for a ghost tour in the rain!
On Friday, we drove up to Saxton’s River, VT and met up with the wedding couple and the rest of the guests. The outside wedding rehearsal went just fine in the bright sunshine at the farm, and back to the Saxton’s River Inn we went to celebrate at the rehearsal dinner.
Saturday, 8/2/08, was the big day for my friends. Us boys played volleyball at Bryce’s quarry, then got ready in our nice clothes, and headed back to the farm for the ceremony. Meanwhile, Richele met up with her friend, Amanda, for the first time since they were in high school together. Despite the sunny preview at the rehearsal, the wedding day called for rain and it was fortunate that the last minute decision was made to move the ceremony into the barn along with the reception. The ceremony was cozy with everyone in the barn, but it was a beautiful place for Matt and Antonia to exchange their vows and was certainly memorable! And within minutes, we were celebrating the reception in the same location! It was a great weekend and wonderful to see my friends get married!
