Jonathan & Erika’s rehearsal dinner

Here are a few photos that I took of the rehearsal dinner for my brother-in-law Jonathan and his lovely fiancee [now wife!] Erika.Β  The Garber parents threw an amazing party at their house with outdoor seating under a tent strung with twinkle lights; a whole roasted pig (!); a delicious spread of salad and baked potatoes and homemade biscuits; drinks and snacks on the back deck; homemade pumpkin pies and apple crisps and Nutella-stuffed brown butter + sea salt chocolate chip cookies for dessert; and a fire pit for gathering and talking after dark.Β  The whole party was a smashing success.Β  So happy for you, Jon and Erika!

thank you, Abby, Clydette, and Gail, for your amazing help in the kitchen!

Last but not least, I would have loved to include a beautiful family portrait in this post, but… this is how our family portraits turned out that night:

      Glad you feel the same way. :-) Thinking of you now as I’m a few hours away from attempting to board a space-a flight back to Sicily…

    Thanks, Becca! I loved every single picture. Looks like it was all quite a shindig! Seeing the blog was the next best thing to being there.

    Wow! What a fabulous event. I’ve never seen a pig roast before – looks delicious.

      I know, me either! But… the eyes… don’t they just creep you out?!

    I laughed out loud at the photo of Steve with Uncle Frank. Good name badge!

      Uncle Frank was a constant source of delight around that house that weekend! My favorite name badge is not pictured, though. It said “Total Stranger (I just smelled pig)” and was on the shirt of the mother-of-the-bride’s twin sister. Her wonderful badge matched her wonderful humor, too!
