Show Us Your Life: Honeymoon

This post is Show Us Your Life: Honeymoon, check all the other people participating in this blog hop at Kelly's Korner.

The day after the wedding, we flew over to Europe for our 2 week honeymoon. Our first destination was Paris. We fell in love with all the site and sounds and can not wait till our next trip to the City of Lights, whenever that may be.

While we were in Paris we took two side trips one to Monet's Garden, as an artist this was an amazing place to visit.

The other side trip was to Versailles, the palace was interesting but I found the landscaping and fountains to be breath taking. We rented a golf cart that we could drive around the grounds, as well as renting a row boat that Aaron used to row us out to the middle of the man made lake.

After spending a week in Paris we flew to Venice for a few days, this is a great city to spend a few days in if you are in Italy or just passing through, there is nothing like it anywhere else in the world.

Our final stop on our honeymoon was Rome. This city was full of excitement and history, Rome is a place where the ancient coincides with modern.

I hope that someday I get to take a vacation like this one again.

Show Us Your Life: Wedding Reception

I thought I would take a break and participate in Kelly's Korner blog hop called Show Us Your Life. This post is Show Us Your Life: Wedding Reception.

Our Wedding Reception was at the Kernwood Country Club in Salem, MA

Here is our yummy cake!

We had my 2 brothers and Aaron's brother who was also the best man make the toasts.

My father sang "The Way Your Look Tonight" during our first dance.

I danced with my father to Tim McGraw's "My Little Girl" with a dip at the end.

Aaron danced with his Mom to "I Hope You Dance".

Aaron is half Jewish so we had the traditional Hava Nagila.

We partied into the into the night!!

After the reception we continued the party at my parents house. Here is the groom's cake that my mom's friend made for us.

Tomorrow I'll be showing you our honeymoon.
