From Washington Park on April 5th, we went onto party at the Normanside Country Club on April 6th! And party we did!
But first, everyone had to get ready! Vanessa (of Elegant Esthetics) arrived with all the party colors in hand and got to work!
Once make up was done, the girls helped Erin into her dress.
Since Finn, Erin and Mike’s adorable Boston Terrier made an appearance on Day 1, it was only fair that their cuddly cat – Ted Kennedy (no, not that Ted) did too! He watched over everyone (especially Erin) to make sure that all preparations went smoothly.
Earlier that morning, Mike received a sweet, sweet shirt from Erin!
While the girls got ready, Mike and Uncle Joe traveled to OTB to place some last minute bets.
Here they are with their game faces on!
Now, that didn’t last long…so home to get ready for the party they went!
Here’s Mike – GQ ready!
Mike and Joe got ready fast, wouldn’t anyone with a cigar break as a motivator?
One last look at Erin as she snuck in a little Yoga while Sarah’s (Maid of Honor) sister set Erin’s hair.
Before we knew it, it was time to party with all the guests at Normanside!
The delicious cake from Dolce & Biscotti (I vouch for it’s amazingness!).
After the cocktail there was a sweet slide show.
And then there were speeches that made Erin, Mike, friends and family – laugh and cry.
Followed by a first dance!
And the father-daughter dance!
DJ Playground got the party going!
Then, it was time for cake!
And more dancing, dancing, dancing!
Gangham style happened too…Everyone partied into the night!
Thank you Erin and Mike for allowing me to document your tremendous and awesome celebration. I wish you both, Finn and Ted Kennedy many, many, many years of happiness, laughter and love. Love is limitless.
