Elisabeth and Joe are Married

We spent a delightful weekend in Philadelphia over the Fourth of July celebrating the marriage of Elisabeth (Adie’s college roommate) and Joe (Jimmy’s childhood friend). Adie and Jim were both in the wedding party so it was extra special, especially since it got me out of Rochester and on a mini happy trip.

Saturday, July 4th was such a pretty day in Philly. I mean 80 degrees, bright sunshine and no humidity (my hair was thankful).

The marriage ceremony was held outside on a lovely trellised patio at a beautiful country club and was performed by Elisabeth’s grandfather.

Elisabeth, in a wonderful
Priscilla of Boston draped gown looked so happy! She was preceded down the aisle by the bridesmaids, dressed in black halter style dresses. They carried a vibrant mix of oranges and pinks, including roses and peonies. The bride carried a lush bouquet of cream and blush peonies.

The sweetest part of the ceremony was when Elisabeth began to say her vows, but could not find the words through her tears. She finally stopped and asked her grandfather for a “do over” so she could recite them again. It was so endearing.

Joe looked very handsome in his classic tuxedo and pink tie.

The cocktail portion of the evening was so nice. A picturesque setting, an open bar, (oh, so important) and yummy cold and hot appetizers including an oyster bar. The most memorable appetizer was a mini philly cheese steak in a cream cheese tart.

For dinner and dancing we entered the ballroom. The bridal party and Elisabeth and Joe were introduced and danced. We were served a delicious dinner, topped with a tasty piece of cake.

What a happy event, and how nice we could all witness their vows and the beginning of their marriage. Congratulations, Joe and Elisabeth!
