I do!!

This past Thursday Hubby and son Jon and I flew to Massachusetts to attend our nieces wedding. Betsey wanted to celebrate her special day in the lovely and very picturesque town of Marion on Buzzards Bay where her Grandparents live. Her parents rented this wonderful home for close family and friends to stay. This waterfront home was built in the late 1800s and had 10 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, butler pantries, library, wrap around porches and much much more! We were quite overwhelmed with it's uniqueness and charm and it took me 3 days to not get lost finding our bedroom depending on which set of stairs I went up. 

The dining room; table hutch and chairs painted in the pretty robins egg blue, if you are a lover of shabby chic you would adore this room. 

Many windows, lots of sun light, here is just a tiny corner of the kitchen. 

                                          The living room ceiling had something I have never seen before,
      a wind compass that was connected to the weather vane on the roof and actually worked! It was very large, about 6 feet in diameter.

This neat hooked rug caught my eye in the hall way upstairs. Our bedroom faced the front of the house and bay, at night the waves lulled me to sleep and each morning when I opened my eyes I saw the sun rise up over the water. I could go on and on, but I'm going to spare you because really, this home was just overwhelmingly wonderful!

                            On Friday Jerry and I had a little spare time so we decided to go sight seeing.  We drove over to Cape Cod and found a really neat tea shop to have lunch at, I thought he was really sweet to agree to stop here as tea shops are not necessarily on his bucket list, but he wanted to please me.

And it turned out we were both thrilled to have found this treasure in the town of Sandwich. The menu and food were absolutely fabulous... and the sangria, well you can see it was spectacular to look at and tasty as well!

After lunch we headed back taking in all the sights along the way. Here's something we never see in land locked Kansas, buoys and lobster traps. 

 Fast forwarding to Saturday, we are all dressed up for the wedding, everyone is pins and needles excited by now!

And after a lovely ceremony in town here comes the beautiful new bride and her groom.
Their smiles surely tell it all, don't you just love a wedding!

The wedding party arrived to the reception in a boat, how fabulous is that! 

The reception was at the yacht club, they had a huge tent erected by the water. The ceiling was encased in gathered white fabric with chandeliers hung down the center. It was just all so beautiful.

And last but not least, our handsome son Jon and I blowing away out on the dock, the wind was super duper strong but thank goodness the rain held off until night time. 

Cheers Betsy and Bake, we were so happy to be able to witness your special day!

What a wonderful place to have a wedding.
We are in RI, and love being near the coast and all of the New England states are close enough to drive to.
