May The Road Rise Up To Meet You

Saturday was wonderful.  I met a lot of J's old college cronies and friends that he grew up with at the wedding.  Two Irish families joining together for a Saint Patrick's Day wedding?  Now that spells out a good time.  The food was delicious and so was the music!  There was plenty of dancing and laughing and reminiscing.  Here are a couple of snapshots from the wedding before my camera decided to stop working!

I just love this woven metallic clutch.  The pewter color is divine and the interior lining is so special!  I love that it is not super shiny and bright, but provides just enough of that extra something.  The perfect accessory to my LBD for this morning wedding!
The church was pretty.  I liked that it was a mix of modern and traditional.  The shape and details of the church itself, the structure, the shape of the windows, the lighting fixtures, everything felt modern, yet the crucifix and the idea of stained glass and the classic shape of the church was very traditional.  The natural light that poured in through the stained glass windows created a beautiful and other-worldly atmosphere.

Being Penn State Alumni, what's a wedding without a Nittany Lion drink-pouring ice sculpture?  True art.  Haha.

A harpist at the reception?  Beautiful and certainly different!

An Irish toast to the bride and groom with a little bubbly!

This was the name of the table that we sat at.  I like that our table had a name rather than a number.  What a nice detail.  :)  Makes everything feel a little warmer, doesn't it?

This salad was amazing!  I love salads that mix fresh fruit and cheese in with dark crunchy greens.  Delicious!

Prime rib dinner that melted in your mouth like butter with string beans and peppers and the most adorable potatoes shaped like mushrooms.  I'm not sure why they were shaped that way... aesthetics perhaps?  Well, whatever, they were amazing.
And of course, the cake!  What a unique design!  The tiers looked exactly like staggered boxes with beautiful green satin ribbons along the bottoms.  Inside was a chocolate and vanilla marble cake, but they also served a variety of other cakes such as Oreo cake, lemon cake, chocolate mousse cake, etc.  Simply delicious!
