Scenes from Massachusetts

Matt and I spent last weekend in Worcester, Massachusetts for one of his best friend's wedding. I think it so so awesome that Matt has a solid {large} group of guy friends he still keeps in really good touch with, sees several times a year, stood in our wedding, etc. from growing up in Springboro, Ohio. Although he's made tons of great friendships through the years, these guys hold a very special place in Matt's heart. 
 
Okay, I'll stop yammering.Here are a few pictures from the weekend...
Once we arrived in Boston we took a train into Worcester, which is apparently pronounced "Wuster." Not only was this my first trip to Boston, this was my first train ride. I live a very sheltered life.
Our first night in Worcester was a late one. Matt was so happy to be reunited with his best friends that we really partied it up until 3 a.m. And by "we," I mean I took a cab home at midnight because I just can't hang like I used to.
The ceremony and reception took place at Club Maxine's, a really awesome lounge. For the ceremony we all got to sit in huge plush chairs. And speaking of the ceremony - it was one of my very favorite parts of the entire day. I'd never been to a more intimate, sweet and cozy ceremony. Everyone cried, laughed and cheered.
Bride & Groom!
After the cocktail hour we headed upstairs to the reception. Check this out!
Cool, right?! The dinner overlooked the bottom floor where the dancing took place.
The food was just as amazing as it was presented. I scarfed my steak and shrimp down way too fast to get a picture.

Congrats to our sweet friends, Jill & Robbie, on an amazing and beautiful wedding day. Enjoy the honeymoon!

  15. Hi Christina! I'm a new reader and I'm so glad I found you through Tea Time with Tess! Congrats on your recent marriage, new home and gosh - I'm so glad Charlie is okay! We have a 2-year-old golden/lab mix and I had tears streaming down my face reading your old Charlie posts. ANYWAYS, decided to comment today because my best friend had her rehearsal dinner in "Wooster" at Club Maxine's! Small world - such a great venue! ;)

    Don't feel bad, I hadn't traveled on a real train until we traveled earlier this year. I love it though!

  17. Beautiful wedding! So awesome that Matt is from Ohio. I live in Columbus, Ohio, so not too far away. If you are ever back in Ohio and looking for things to do in Columbus, let me know. And I also have never been on a train. I definitely need to travel more :)
