Wedding Bells at Christmas Time


The only wedding I’d ever been to was my niece’s. I think I was about 5 years old and I was a bridesmaid. All I can remember however, is a vague image of the dance floor and the room where we had to sleep when our parents were dancing. When I got the invite to the wedding of my college friends, Tania and Geert, I was more than excited. I started brainstorming immediately with one of my other friends and had the perfect outfit in my head more than a month in advance. You might think that this is going overboard, but you must admit, I’m not the only one who does this.

Two weeks ago Saturday the magical night arrived and we finally got a glimpse of the cute couple, and the bride in a gorgeous white dress. The venue was dressed in a Christmassy mood and the food was beyond incredible. I do have to stress the dessert though: cotton candy and waffles on a stick?! Among the other hundred desserts, these two really got my train going. Anyway, we had an evening I’ll never forget, dancing with old friends and celebrating the union of these two very sweet people.

I’m so excited to let you know that I’ve started a new blog. You can find me on Rooftop Antics. See you there!
