cinnamon raisin bagel with cream cheese, tuna salad, egg salad, and fresh fruit
The rest of the day was spent hanging around with the family. Even though I was a bit tired, it was really nice to see my relatives. I hadn't seen some of them in a year or two! It's crazy to see how fast everyone grows up - I still can't believe some of my cousins are getting married already. I swear it seems like yesterday that everyone was in middle school/high school. At some point in the day I ended up crashing and took a much needed two hour nap - I'm telling you I was T-I-R-E-D. That's ok though, I needed to rest up for the night's coming events! In the late afternoon we got all dolled up and were off!
I chose not to bring my camera to the actual wedding because I wanted to enjoy the night instead of worrying about photographing it. (And hey, that's what wedding photographers are for right?) But I can assure you it was a blast - not to mention the food was spectacular. The menu started off with a salad tossed in balsamic vinaigrette topped with a mushroom stuffed puffed pastry which was then followed by a dinner spread of every meat imaginable (we're talking fresh turkey, pastrami, salmon, chicken marsala, sesame chicken, filet mignon ... all in a buffet) and then finished with a dessert buffet consisting of a freshly baked belgian waffle bar and 7 different cakes. I definitely went to bed feeling more than stuffed. But that's OK - sometimes it's plain worth it to stuff yourself with delicious food. And it was great fuel for all the dancing I was doing...
The next morning my family and I enjoyed a quick Father's Day brunch at a French eatery and were back on the road home. It was definitely a jam-packed weekend, but after a good night's sleep on Sunday I was feeling energized and ready for work this morning! I'm going to attempt to photograph some more eats this week and keep you guys updated - now that I'm sort of on a schedule I think I've got this whole thing down.
What did you do this weekend?
