Last night, The BB, my parents and I headed out to the wedding of a family member. It was at The Mansion at Maple Heights in Pittsburgh (Shadyside).
The BB and I pre-wedding. I ended up wearing the dress I originally purchased for this event. I tried it on for my mom on Friday, and she said it really wasn’t tight at all! I was so glad I could wear it.Jale (my parents) looking snazzy before the wedding. :)We stopped for a refreshment on the way to the wedding…Then we arrived at the Mansion. It was beautiful!One of the rooms inside the mansion. This is where some of the appetizers were located during cocktail hour.Then my Aunt Linda revealed the flask full of vodka in her purse! Some of my family members were taking shots before the ceremony. :)The Bodybuilder and I waiting for the ceremony to start.Ceremony set-up/my parents making their way to their seats.After the ceremony, we headed inside the mansion for cocktail hour. I had a wine spritzer (Pinot Grigio and ginger ale; my cousin told me about the combo) – delicious!Side view of the tent where the reception was held.My place card. I sat with The BB (obviously), my cousin Alexis, cousin Nik, cousin Lara, and cousin Chase. It was a fun table!Gorgeous floral centerpieces.The food was very good, and actually had quite a few vegan options. I had a big salad with dried bing cherries and a citrus vinaigrette, fresh bread, lots and lots of grilled vegetables, and some potatoes (which were cheesy and not vegan, but delicious, so I had to try some). I definitely didn’t leave hungry!The cake (to the left). It was white cake with raspberries in and on top with a creamy vanilla icing. It was really fresh and SO good.
We had a good time! It was nice to see everyone, and so fun to go to a wedding! I know how much hard work goes into planning a wedding; it was nice to be a guest this time around. :)
Are you guys having a good weekend? The BB and I are hanging around my parents’ house for awhile longer, then heading back to WV to prep for the work week!
