Rehearsal Dinner

The Spina's threw a sweet rehearsal dinner for the bride & groom before the big day. The day was filled with amazing food, family, friends, and toasts that even made grown men cry. It was lovely to be part of such a heartwarming event.

We began with the all important practice portion by the beautiful river.

Here you see Judge Robert Herman who also married Karen & Audie as well as Ryan & myself. A pretty special way to unite the families.

Afterwards, we got to mingle between the families.

It was time to eat and boy, did we have a spread to choose from.

We all sat together and enjoyed Nan's freshly picked flowers.

Our toasts followed, complete with Spina homemade limoncello.

Check out Nan's reaction...

...yet it doesn't compare to Phil's pure happiness.

Some serious talk...

...followed by a big bite of Carmen & David's ice cream.

A wonderful evening spent by the river with much anticipation for what the next day would bring. Here's to the new couple & their families.
