Sam & Amelia’s Wedding

Wednesday, July 11th, 2007 · 2 Comments


Saturday brought us back to our old college town of Poughkeepsie for our third and final wedding of the summer: That of Sam and Amelia in the Vassar Chapel, the very same place where Jen and I got married nearly 4 years ago. All 3 weddings we attended this summer were all friends from Vassar, which was cool.

As always, it was surreal being back on campus — it seemed like a lifetime ago that we were students there. We were last on campus three years ago for our 5-year reunion. We got to see the fancy new round-abouts on Raymond Ave. for the first time. Campus was beautiful, as always, and both wedding service and reception (at the Alumnae House) were wonderful.

It was great to see Sam — looking really happy — and to meet his new bride, Amelia. It was fun meeting lots of new people, and running into some old acquaintances. We sat at the Vassar table — where two other couples had also been married at the Chapel.

After the service, we did a reenactment pose of our best wedding photo — we haven’t aged a day in 4 years, have we?

Then we did a Shakespeare Garden photo shoot, also to relive our wedding day nearly 4 years ago.

On the way to Poughkeepsie, we met up with Shay and his family for a great lunch in New Paltz (unfortunately, I didn’t take any photos; hard to believe, I know!). It was fun seeing Shay and Deb and their girls; we hadn’t seen them since the year of our wedding.

And last but not least was this truck we saw, advertising what has got to be the least refreshing beverage of all time: Intense Milk:

Other weddings this summer included Larry & Joan’s and Dan & Shira’s.

Good times!

(And this concludes the catch-up I outlined in my July Blog Blitz post on Sunday — and I did it before the weekend. Woohoo!)

    Gabe, I’ve got 7 weddings this summer, but you may be right up there with me! One’s in Poughkeepsie, too.

    Wow! 7 weddings will really keep you busy. I think our record was 8 or 9 in 2003 (including our own).
