We finally arrived at our daughter's house and unloaded all the "stuff" we had brought with us. Unfortunately most of that same stuff came home with us!
I brought my wedding dress because she wanted to try it on.
It was a beautiful dress but pretty dated.
She will not be wearing it (I didn't think she would, though).
Does anyone know a place that takes these as donations?
One of the fun things we did while we were there was to visit the venue where the wedding and reception will be taking place.
It's called the Cookery.
This is the room you walk into upon arrival.
It is where the cocktail hour will be held after the wedding.
From where I was standing if I did a 180 this was the other view of the same space.
We walked through an outdoor area into the ballroom.
This is where the dinner and dancing will be held.
See those two large doors?
The bridal suite (for getting ready) is behind them.
Bridal suite view one.
(windows are looking into the courtyard where the wedding will be)
Doing a 180 this is the rest of the room.
This is the courtyard where the wedding will be held.
On Saturday it was game day. Max was all set in his MSU green and white.
We were not watching the game because we were shopping for the wedding dress!!!
This is all I am allowed to show. It was as we first walked into David's Bridal.
The dress is a secret.
We headed for home on Monday morning via the New River Gorge.
I learned that the New River is one of the oldest rivers in North America.
I believe this bridge is the largest single span in America too.
It was pretty spectacular.
We stopped for a photo.
As we were driving along the mountains we happened upon Cathedral Falls. So beautiful!
We walked along the slippery rocks to get close to the falls. So fun!
We spent the night in Marietta Ohio at the Lafayette Hotel.
It was a beautiful old hotel right on the river. Take a look at that ship's wheel on the ceiling!
This was the view from our room.
Isn't this a cool old hotel?
Next up will be the spoils of the trip. Or at least most of the spoils.
