Justine and Patrick's Wedding!

Unfortunately, the cold that's been kicking my ass since Wednesday decided to hit me hard on Saturday night while we were at a wedding. With each day this cold seems to get worse and worse and we leave for Disney World in 6 days!! I MUST get better! I tried so hard to muster up some energy on Saturday, but found it harder and harder as the night wore on. As a result, I did not capture this wedding nearly as well as I had hoped, but I can show you some highlights:

I really liked the church in Glendale, Queens where the ceremony was. It was exactly the type of church I always like for ceremonies: beautiful stained glass windows and a long aisle with grand entrance doors!
 I loved Justine's one-shoulder dress, it looked absolutely beautiful on her.
 I also really liked the bridesmaids dresses and their beautiful orchid bouquets!
That night we headed over to the Crescent Beach Club in Bayville, New York. Not only was the place beautiful, but the views were breathtaking, as it was right on the water of the Long Island Sound. I would definitely love to come here for dinner one night. During cocktail hour, Chris and I looked out at the water and even walked in the sand for a bit!
 On our way up to the reception, Chris and I grabbed our place-card attached to a silver dollar!
Favors were homemade chocolates with a note that a donation had been made to the American Cancer Society. 

The bride and groom were announced and it was time for the first dance:

Near the end of the night it was time to cut the cake!
After that, Chris and I got our piece of cake and went up to the ICE CREAM BAR. I love me some ice cream, but add my love of ice cream to the fact that my throat was on fire, and it was just what I needed to close out our night.

Congratulations to Justine and Patrick and sorry I was such a sick and lame party-goer on Saturday!

The bride's dress is gorgeous and new/old fashioned, the cake looks like a piece of beautiful carved Italian marble, and the color of the bridesmaids' dresses and their bouquets is really stunning. Very nice. Hope you feel better.
