Not In Boston...

But you might have thought we were last weekend with all of the Red Sox paraphernalia surrounding us!

Instead of Boston, though, it was the quaint area along the Delaware-Pennsylvania border and instead of a Sox game, it was the wedding of our friends, Ethan and Carolyn, two avid Boston fans.

The wedding festivities started with a delicious and relaxed meal following the rehearsal at Buckley's Tavern. This also will go down in history as being the site at which Ethan bestowed upon each of his groomsmen, my husband being one of them, their official "Pimp Cups" (and as they say... "the rest is history"). My enormous, broiled crabcake became only secondary news to these infamous drinking receptacles, but suffice it to say, all of our entrees were delicious.

The ceremony Saturday late afternoon was beautiful, held at the downtown Wilmington, DE, Westminster Presbyterian Church. Most special about the ceremony was that an old family friend of Ethan's as well as Carolyn's pastor growing up co-officiated making it that much more special.

We arrived back at the hotel and reception site, the beautiful Inn at Mendenhall just up the road in Chadds Ford, PA.

The couple had put so much thought into each aspect of the reception - it was so fun! Our placecards were also photo coasters so we could take them home and keep our favorite picture from the day in it, and also, each table was named after a favorite spot in Boston. Such cute ideas!

You sadly can't really tell exactly the design in this picture, but each of the guests were also treated to little tins of Sox-logoed M&Ms!

And finally, it was apparent (see the groom's cake below) that while the couple is together in their love for all things Boston, including the city's baseball team, they had some work to do in terms of their NFL teams... Ethan being a staunch Giants fan, and Carolyn true to her Eagles.

But nothing could take away from the joy of the day. We truly enjoyed celebrating with Carolyn and Ethan and were so glad that we could be a part of their wedding weekend!

Of course the "pimp cups" had to make one last appearance at the reception...Hilarious.
