Wow! My niece and her boyfriend finally got married! I didn't think it was ever going to happen. Very nice wedding. They are Catholic and I was expecting a long drawn out wedding, but this catholic wedding was only an hour and 15 min. Most Catholic weddings I've been to were about 2 hrs long. My niece, Katie, is a very sweet, down to earth person, and so is her new husband. It's their wedding but they went to a lot of trouble making sure the guests were taken care of. Along with the invitation, they sent the details of activities the day before the wedding, the day of the wedding, maps, and hotels in the area (because many guests were coming from out of state). I'm not a fan of polka, waltz, and the fox trot, but it was fun to watch people dance at the reception. Their parents had brought back wine and champagne from France. The champagne from France is so much better than the champagne in the states. They had a lot of desserts, besides their wedding cake - all homemade. They had german wedding cake and there were several kinds of cookies: chocolate chip, snickerdoodles, chocolate, and different flavors of sugar cookies. And my favorite dessert/snack - peanut butter rice krispie squares with chocolate frosting mmmmmm..... so delicious! I can't say enough good things about my niece, Katie, and her husband. They are both wonderful people and I wish them the very best!
