The wedding was scheduled for 2:30 at St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Taunton, so we figured we needed to get their before the start time in order to get a good seat. Good ol' Garmin got us to the church on time, actually about 25 minutes early, and just in time to catch a whole heard of people leaving the church and waving to a bride & groom on the sidewalk! Panic just about set in before we realized that was not Melissa and her new groom, but rather the bride who had booked the church in the ceremony before. Talk about hearts skipping a beat though!

After a treasure trove of fabulous finds and a tiny, little snack of Swedish meatballs later, the Garretts had burned enough time and were off to downtown Boston for the Simas/Tyler reception. Built on the site of a 17th century battery, The Boston Harbor Hotel at Rowes Wharf has been awarded the Forbes Travel Guide Five Star Award and is listed as one of the "World's Best Places to Stay." It was beautiful to say in the least!

But the perfect score was to come soon enough in dinner! Melissa & Nathan's guests were treated to a menu of char grilled sea scallops, goat cheese cake, filet mignon, Maine lobster tail along with a trio of wedding desserts. Dinner was unbelievable! We decided there are perks to living this close to the ocean. Our best surprise of the night was being seated at the 'fun table.' Table 14 turned out to be a random mixture of Nathan & Melissa's friends from college and work and were folks from Boston and Little Rock. Great food, great conversation and a great reason to celebrate!
We had a such a great time at Melissa's wedding and were so honored to be guests there...Our best wishes to the new couple!
