A Wedding Feast

By Katherine

Last month, Sean and I tied the knot on Martha's Vineyard in front of a very small group of family and friends.  It was wonderful in every way, including the amazing lobster dinner we had afterwards.  

We rented the beautiful home of our old friends/neighbors, the Guineys, in Seven Gates Farm in Chilmark for the week.  We had the ceremony in the backyard (thankfully the rain that day stopped just in time) and the post-wedding feast on the lovely screened-in porch.

Since we were on the Vineyard, we knew we wanted a locally-inspired meal to celebrate.  Lobster was a must, and we rounded things out with corn on the cob, green salad, and garlic bread. It was not a menu to be eaten daintily or tidily, but luckily Laura got some pretty adorable bibs printed up for us.

Even with the bibs for protection, most of us opted to change out of our wedding clothes so we could really dig in.

Even these little rascals got in on the action. . . .

And for dessert, there just had to be pie. Blueberry, peach, and pecan to be exact.  

Yum!

Yum!

It was a day--and a dinner--that we'll always remember!
