After a slow start on Friday, we squeezed in a couple of visitors before hitting the road and making the 4 hour trek out to Lewisporte. Funny enough, about an hour into the trip we ended up driving behind Elizabeth’s uncle and cousins for a while! After a couple of pee breaks, we found ourselves at the villa where we were staying and got settled in while catching up with the rest of the immediate family.
Afterwards, many members of the Norman family headed back to the villa where we were staying, where even more drinks and snacks made an appearance. Some of the cocktails weren’t as tasty as usual but they still hit the spot; we did what we could with limited tools and (unintentionally) extremely alcoholic Moscow Mules.
On Saturday morning, we took it fairly easy decorating our cars and somehow still struggled to be ready for the wedding at 2pm. Sarah and Matthew’s ceremony at the church was beautiful and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. The afternoon was then full of family photos, more food at Elizabeth’s Pop’s house, and lots more family. We enjoyed the sunny weather and played some games of washers and bocce while soaking up the rays between the ceremony and the reception.
Here are some more photos of the weekend; a big thanks to Elizabeth’s Dad for taking way more photos than we did and letting us share the photos on the blog:
