Drew & Tracy's Wedding (Part 2)

After the wedding ceremony, while the wedding party was having pictures taken, we were served drinks at an open bar and an abundant variety of delicious hors d'oeuvres. 

I took this opportunity to take photos of our family who came together for the wedding.  Here we have my brother-John, his wife-Phyllis and my brother-Tom.

My brother-Bob and his wife-Bonnie traveled with us from Beloit, Wisconsin to attend the wedding.

My niece, Brittany, drove to Beloit from Appleton, Wisconsin and then rode with her father-John and Phyllis to the wedding in Novi, Michigan.

I took several pictures without asking family to pose.  I like this one of Tom.

Lon and Brittany are happy.

We were instructed to go to the room where the reception was to be held.  After the wedding party joined us, Ryan gave the traditional best man's speech.  He did a great job.

Drew also spoke.  He thanked all of the guests for sharing this special day with him and Tracy.     

It's time to dance...

...and get used to being husband and wife.

My brother, Carl, now has two married sons.

I like Carl in his tux.

Emma and Abigail and a precious moment.

This thoughtful card was beside each place setting at the reception dinner.

We all stayed at the hotel where the wedding and reception were held.  That worked out well for everyone.
On Friday evening, Pam-Drew's mother, hosted a rehearsal dinner at her home and we were all invited.  We enjoyed plenty of food, drinks and fun.  It was a lovely gathering on a beautiful evening in Pam's yard.
Once again, CONGRATULATIONS TO DREW AND TRACY, from all of us.

Thanks for share this post I also share with you something hope you like my post. My cousin got married a few months ago and there was no program for the festivities. The wedding started at 5 and lasted about an hour. Naturally, when the ceremony was over at 6 and we headed to the reception site to see appetizers we assumed it was a cocktail hour before dinner. There were two tables on either side of the room which contained buffet style appetizers. Everything was bite size and finger foods ranging from veggies and dip to deviled eggs. Not to mention, the plates were only about 5 inches in diameter. Image our surprise when no food was served throughout the rest of the reception! We had to go back to fill our tiny plates at least five times and were still hungry when the food ran out. Not to mention she had a cash bar as well so we had to pay for drinks and didn't even get a meal. We were not happy at all! Thanks
