Amy & Brendan Tie the Knot - Pre-Wedding Festivities...

This wedding has been on the books since waaaaay back in 2012 when my cousin Brendan popped the question to the beautiful, smart and fun Amy on a hike in Vermont. The Greeley gals had already agreed to adopt Amy should Brendan continue to drag his feet but turns out he was simply waiting for that perfect moment and we were all thrilled that she said "yes!" 

So when the wedding weekend was finally upon us, the Virginia Greeley's filled up their gas tanks loaded up their EZ-Passes and hit the road for Massachusetts and what would be yet another epic Greeley family event. 

The weekend kicked off with a backyard bbq at Aunt Judy & Uncle Gary's. Most of the family (those not attending the rehearsal) was able to attend and it was a great opportunity to give hugs, catch up, and stretch our legs in their amazing backyard. We were all excited about meeting Nathan, one of the newest Greeley cousins who hit the scene a year ago (well done Molly & Jeff). Adam and Olivia had fun playing with him (and his toys) and of course we all loved seeing the next generation making memories with one another. 

The next morning we took the kids to Forest Park, a petting zoo that I remember Aunt Judy & Aunt Mary Jo taking us to when we were little. Adam and Olivia had fun seeing the different animals and while the train ride didn't work out we promised there was still lots of fun (and dancing!) to come. 

Our last pre-wedding activity was lunch and backyard golf and baseball at Aunt Judy's. This time we got to meet the newest addition to our cousin clan, little miss Emery (Melissa & John you did good). 

As if the afternoon hadn't been memorable enough, Uncle Tim brought out the guitar and sang for us. The. Best. He even sang Adam's favorite - the Winnie the Pooh song. Smiles and applause all around. 

Hard to believe with all the fun we'd already had, the main event was still to come!
