Friends Weddings

We have had a busy two weeks going to wedding rehearsals, showers and the actual "I DOs" in which Rick visited Aurora 3 times in 4 days. It started out with Rick attending Luke and Jen's rehearsal dinner in Aurora so he could get to know everyone before the big event where he was the photographer. The next day was Ewa and Wojtek's hilarious bachelor/bachelorette party. I wish we could have stayed longer for that one.

The next day Rick went up to Aurora again for Luke's family pictures. That afternoon Luke and Jen got married in a beautifully romantic ceremony by the Lake. Jen looked gorgeous in an amazing dress; Luke was handsome in his tux; and the reception had tonnes of great little personal and fun touches. Rick was behind the camera so we haven't found a picture of us yet.
The weekend continues on Sunday afternoon when we attended Ewa's Wedding Shower in Aurora.

In usual polish style there was lots of great food and lots of yummy treats. The cutest part was when we had to strain to see Ewa behind a mountain of gifts.
A week later was the wedding completely in Polish. Needless to say I couldn't understand a word but it looked wonderfully touching. It was a very small wedding less than 40 people in attendance and like nothing I've ever experienced. It was great to have time and quiet enough to talk to the people around you while eating mountains of food. An amazing 7 course meal, very polish. With such a small group you could also easily demand the bride and grooms attention. I think the amount of time that Ewa and Wojtek got to spend with each guest is what every bride and groom would wish for but can't do because of the 100+ people in attendance.

We had a great time.
