On november 17, 2017, ryan's parents, dianne and bob, hosted our rehearsal dinner at the community lodge on high crest lake in west milford. the room was decorated with cafe lights and cozy touches. ryan's sister and her boyfriend were kind enough to put together a slideshow of pictures of ryan and i and our families.
there were about 55 guests at the dinner; it was quite a party! the food was so delicious and the music was festive. it wasn't long until the dance floor was filled.
other than eating and dancing the night away, ryan and i gave gifts to our bridal party and parents in hopes of expressing our appreciation for all of their support, love, and hard work leading up to the wedding.
it was a fantastic evening!
MY MOM GAVE OUT UMBRELLAS AS GIFTS TO THE GUESTS. WE HAVE A RUNNING JOKE IN OUR FAMILY THAT FOR EVERY ONE OF MY IMPORTANT LIFE EVENTS, IT RAINS. THE QUOTE MY MOM USED WAS FROM MY CHILDHOOD BEDROOM: I USED TO PAINT MY FAVORITE QUOTES ALL OVER THE WALL, SO SHE SNAPPED A PHOTO! IT WAS NO SURPRISE THAT ON OUR WEDDING DAY, IT RAINED! THANKS FOR KEEPING US DRY, MOM!
