This weekend my little cousin (!) John David married his lovely bride, Kristi, in Sturbridge, Massachusetts. My Dad and I made the 3 hour drive out there on Saturday morning. The entire event was held at Publick House, which is a quaint and historic property at the heart of the town. The wedding rehearsal was held outside in hope that the impending rains would hold off, but unfortunately they did not. It rained heavily the day of the ceremony so everything was held indoors. The space was beautiful and John and Kristi exchanged personal vows they wrote for each other. Their friend Joe sang an amazing acoustic version of “I’ll Missing You” during a remembrance portion of the ceremony (in honor of John’s brother, Jeffery; my mom, and a few other of Kristi’s family members). Afterwards we partied the night away and danced at a fantastically DJ-ed reception. I even managed to get my Dad into the Photobooth!
It was a wonderful, fun and refreshing weekend. I loved the opportunity to bond with my family and some time out of town (DC) and in my bed at home is always appreciated. Please enjoy a few pics below (click to enlarge).
Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. John Hey!
