Grey and Peter's Wedding Reception - Part 1

Our friends Grey and Peter got married legally last November in Maryland, but hosted their reception in late April (last weekend) at their home. They went all out for it and must've planned it for a year. The backyard was set up nicely, they had bartenders outside, hors d'ouveres, a tent and dance floor under it, a great band featuring David North and Julia Nixon, great food, and fun. 
Enjoyed meeting Grey's childhood friends!
   We met lots of other friends there including Steve and Jane, Jason and Kevin and others that we hung out with.

After an opening reception we all gathered around an outside platform with a view of the Chesapeake Bay. It was there where Reverend David North (who has a great singing voice we learned)  presided over Grey and Peter as the re-made their vows before everyone. The showers held out and the sun was shining, so it was perfect! 



Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
