After being dumped by nearly 2 feet of snow just two weeks ago, we’re now enjoying a balmy stretch of weather that has everyone walking around outside in t-shirts. It feels like a spring thaw; all the snow is melted and mud is everywhere. The temperatures have been in the 50-60s, even stretching to nearly 70 one day this week. Only in New England will the weather be so quirky, cold and snowy one day and balmy and delicious the next.

And this delicious weather arrived just in time for the wedding celebration of my sister-in-law and her husband. While they were officially married in August, this weekend marked the renewal of their vows in front of family and friends, with a reception that followed.

It was such a beautiful celebration. The hall looked marvelous with all of their hard work on both the ceremony details (they wrote their own vows!) and the reception. Both the bride and groom said their vows by memory, without prompting, and with such love. He was handsome and she was just gorgeous. The best man and maid of honor looked nearly as beautiful as the couple – not quite, but close. 😉 And the flowergirl nearly stole the show with her adorableness.

The favors were caramel apples hand-dipped and packaged by the bridal party and family. The centerpieces – beautiful wreaths with lanterns – were crafted with care by my sister-in-law herself.

And everyone just had a blast. The food was delicious, the company lovely and the dancing amazing.

A beautiful celebration for a lovely couple.

May they live happily ever after.
