Sean & Will's Wedding Preparations

Let's Celebrate Love!
The love we feel for you, and the love we feel for each other. 
Here in Vermont,
Where our love was hatched,
Under falling stars,
Over mountain trails,
On swimming docks,
And in laughter with friends.
The gardens are all decked out
Sean, Scott and Will at our first dinner on Saturday the 8th -
James arrived later by train from Washington
The rainbow flag waves proudly
The Hors d'oueves sign waits for customers and plaid buntings hang from the railings
Will and Sean's wedding on August 15th was amazing - a true reflection of their love for each other, the love they have for their friends and family - AND the love we have for them. They had planned every detail of the wedding and it was perfect. Then they worked all week to make it happen!
Sean, Will and James came on Saturday the 8th. Wilma, Brent and Wandi came on Sunday mid day. Later on Sunday Paula took the train up all the way from Maryland and James picked her up down in Bellows Falls at 5 PM. Will's parents, Cathy & Gary DeKrey came on Wednesday. Josh, Michal, Daniel, Cookie, Maya, Jonathan and Shira arrived late Wednesday. Zoe, George, Nick and Tommy came on Wednesday too. Morgen arrived Thursday along with Piper, Derrick and most of the wedding party. The "bachelor party" was Thursday night - unfortunately I wasn't there and don't have pictures but we heard it was a lot of fun! The photos here are mine and are just the preparations for the wedding. Next blog post will be the rehearsal dinner and then the Sunday Brunch. As soon as I receive the wedding photos themselves, I'll get them online. Every minute of this week was a joy!
