Agnieszka's wedding

On June 3, 2006, we had the honor of attending the wedding of an old friend of mine, Agnieszka. Agnieszka and I were roommates back in the summer of 1994 at a language camp at Simon's Rock in Mass. I can't remember how long the camp was for. I want to say 6 weeks, but I can't be sure about that. Over the next 12 years, we managed to stay in touch, and since we moved to the NYC, we were invited to the wedding.

We gave a ride to one of her friends as well, and the morning started out with a bit of drama! We had reserved the car to be picked up at 9 a.m. but we thought that would give us too much time for the Noon wedding, so we pushed it back to 10:30. Well, it turns out...that was quite a mistake. Or maybe the mistake laid in the lack of full preparation. We didn't bring any credit cards with us--only our bankcard (which anywhere else can be used as a credit card). What this meant is that Jeff had to return home to grab one. This was no small task, as it is quite a hike home! To add to that, it was HOT and RAINING outside--not pleasant to be running in Sunday best! It seemed that everything was stacked against us this morning, but Jeff made it back and we were on our way. We didn't quite make it on time...but we made it!

After the wedding, we drove on to Patchogue, NY, where the reception was being held. I have to admit that this was definitely one of my favorite receptions! The food was exquisite! (Too bad Jeff and I don't really have cultured palates to truly enjoy this remarkable food.) The band was fun. And Agnieszka...I don't think that I've seen a happier, cuter bride!

Jeff had this thing with the keyboard player of the band...something about his "look." I didn't really get it, but most of our pics of the days revolve around this man.

The reception was right on the ocean. It would have been beautiful if the weather had been cooperating. From the window, we could just see all the waves crashing. If the big predicted hurricane actually hits NY, this place is sure to be hit big time! It will be a shame, because it is a very nice facility.

Check out this cake!! Mmmm...Mmmm...Mmmm...
