for these posts about our amazing european sandwich meetup lindsey and melissa will be making tag-team posts. lindsey will post in orange and melissa will post in green.
the next morning was the big day! we went over to the pink house to help claire decorate the reception tent.
We got to hang the lovely hearts that friends and family knit.
We scampered home to get ready for the wedding and got back just in time to watch claire's cousin putting on her makeup.
Claire's dad did an amazing job with the ceremony. By telling his sweet stories in both English and German, I don't think there was a dry eye in the garden he dubbed the 'cathedral of nature'.
On to the reception! the food was amazing
the cake was topped with a traditional portuguese rooster.
Entertainment was charming. Claire's cousin's son sang traditional Portugese Fado
claire and georg didn't sing, but they did give heartfelt thank you speeches in both english and german.
We crashed Claire and Georg's photo shoot
But really, who could resist this beauty?
seriously, have you ever seen a more beautiful bride?
we even taught their portuguese photographer the word, "smootch!"
The shawl turned out perfectly and looked amazing with Claire's dress and feathers.
It was a beautiful day and we all enjoyed it long into the night.
