The rehearsal dinner for our son’s wedding was held in the backyard of friends outside of Helena. The grounds are surrounded by huge, old willows. There was abundant shade for a party and lots of space for the kids to run. Just a few weeks prior their lawn and basement had been flooded by high creek run-off. The week of the wedding there had been multiple downpours but it was dry enough Friday night to host the dinner. It was not a place for high heels since the ground was very soft. It was causal wear and time for a BBQ picnic! Yum! Everyone had a good time, I think. We fed about 34 people.
We certainly appreciated all the hard work it took to host the party. Thank you, thank you!
There might have been a slight case of wedding nerves that evening. Ian Caitlin were pretty cool, but I certainly was feeling it! Everyone got enough to eat and drink and it didn’t rain! I’d say it was a success. The food, catered by best man # 2 – Nik’s parents, was delicious.
