If you've been reading PSA Stamp Camp for the last few months, you already know all about Susan and Luke getting married on May 21st. Half a dozen posts were devoted to the couple, from the engagement party, couples shower, invites, and bachelorette party. All of those events lead up to one of the best weddings I have ever been to. Here is a recap of The DeLano wedding.
In a word, it was REAL. No, not surreal. Real. It was the most authentic and genuine wedding I have ever been to. The evening was truly about two people who are madly in love, wanting to share and celebrate with their family and friends. It took place in Lenox, Massachusetts. The ceremony and reception in the home where she grew up in, set against the gorgeous Berkshire Mountains.
With her two best friends Laura and Becca, she dressed in her gown in the room she slept in for almost 20 years. The ceremony performed by a family friend in the garden, Susan wearing a slightly altered version of her mother's wedding dress.
We feasted on the tastiest smoked turkey, beef tenderloin, ham, smoked salmon, tomatoes and mozzarella, homemade potato salad, Italian meats and the most luxurious tray of cheeses you ever did see. Cake was forgone and served instead was a giant cannoli. Guests stuffed ricotta deliciousness into their own! We drank oodles of wine (with a picture of Susan & Luke on the exterior) and danced for hours and hours in the living room.
Bridezillas everywhere please take note. It's not about engraved invitations, having the reception at the Plaza, wearing Vera Wang, the sushi bar or the chocolate fondue fountain. It really is all about the two people getting married and having the night of your life with close friends and family.
Mike and I sure did have fun! Thanks Susan & Luke and congrats to you. Have fun in Greece!
