What a wonderful weekend it was for a wedding! Brett and I arrived in Moline, IL about 3:30 on Friday. We attended the rehearsal dinner that night at Johnny's Steakhouse - FABULOUS!
Brett stayed out and celebrated the end of Jason's manhood until 3 am and had the best time. Saturday was filled with chilly weather and a nice walk around Moline. Not much to see but we did a little shopping and had a nice lunch. My favorite part of the trip was the leather couch in front of the big stone fireplace where we sat and (tried to) read. It was so relaxing!
The wedding ceremony was lovely with a full Catholic mass. Afterward we took the shuttle to Rock island Arsenal for one the most elegant wedding receptions I have attended. It was filled with various size dinner tables and cocktails tables decorated with white Christmas trees. There were passed hors d'oeuvres and a meat carving station and make your own pasta bar for dinner. Delicious!
The night was filled with much dancing and celebration! When we left the arsenal, it was like a scene from a movie - big white sow flakes falling to the ground! We celebrated for a bit more at the hotel bar until we finally called it a night. Congratulations to Natalie and Jason...may they have a lifetime filled with happiness!
At the end of the night, everyone was left asking, "Who is that guy?"
