Grace's and Cristian's Wedding - Part 2

Man, what a fun wedding! The ceremony was beautiful. The reception was a blast!Since this was essentially an international wedding, the people at our table were from Spain, Switzerland, Germany...and of course the USA. Danna and Steve sat at our table, as did Cristian's sister and her husband. The meal was scrumptious. The company was great. The bar was free. And we danced (well, I did a little anyway). And of course, watching Grace and Cristian dance was amazing!

So...after the reception was over, we went back to our room for a another glass of wine and then headed to Grace's and Cristian's suite for the party after the party. The audio post below is from just before we went to the suite...

Grace's and Cristian's Wedding - Part 1

Another week, another wedding! Our friends Grace and Cristian got married on Saturday, August 20th at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. We traveled into the city with our friends Danna and Steve on Saturday morning, taking the Metro North from New Haven into Grand Central Station.

After checking into the Waldorf, we went down the street for lunch (a mere $20 per couple for a cheap lunch - ouch!). Man, was it delicious! Then, since we didn't know whether the wedding reception would be open bar - and the courtesy drinks in the room were ridiculously priced ($7 for a can of Budweiser) - we went on a hunt for a liquor store. We wandered all around and finally found one after about an hour and bought a Incidentally, we found out on Sunday that there was a liquor store right next to the restaurant where we ate lunch (sigh).

Anyway, the audio post below takes place after the liquor store hunt and before the wedding ceremony.

Karen's Wedding

We traveled to Allentown, PA for Sharon's cousin's wedding this past weekend. I had hoped to get more audio, but here's a quick post I made just before the wedding ceremony.
