Everyone Gathered at Hammond Castle on Saturday, October 2nd 2004 for the wedding. After 8 years of dating, it was finally the day! Michael Stannet presided over the ceremony, calling forth tools of the ceremony carried by various groomsmen. Our hands were fasted and we pledged our love with the grace and protection of a sword.
So many guests came in costumes, while others came semi-formal or casual. I'll be looking forward to posting pictures of everyone once they're developed. My parents dressed as a King and Queen and Kevin wore a full suit of armor (no helmet though). Cornucopias of fall flowers adorned the tables and the drawbridge, and the Reelies performed - they are musicians who we found at the NY Rennaisance faire.
Vinwood Caterers fed our guests and provided an open bar. The quality of the food and the nice attitudes were so welcome and above and beyond, I have to recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer in MA. We had a buffet, as well as a big dessert buffet!
That weekend was also my Sister's Birthday! A cake was brought out and the musicians played a rennaisance rendition of Happy Birthday for her, my sister-in-law Elisabeth and my Mother Elaine.
