Today, I get to share part three (our last installment) of Becky and Danny’s amazing wedding. You may recall parts 1 and 2 took place at the beatiful Chanler at Cliff Walk in Newport, RI. They had an intimate ceremony and reception there. Still they wanted to be able to celebrate with even more family and friends so on July 4th they hosted a tented BBQ in Preston, Connecticut.
Here’s Becky and Danny in front of her childhood home. Dave had fun playing with this image, hearkening back to the late 1800’s.
Guests enjoyed an all-day affair and withstood the stormy weather with smiles. The entertainment was non-stop: games of badminton, volleyball, soccer, jumping in the pool, and lots of great conversation. They even provided a few props for the other celebration that occurs on July 4.
The tent looked great- decorated with lanterns and lights. They continued the theme of fresh colors of pinks, yellows, and greens.
In the afternoon, Becky and Danny got all dolled up again. Jeanine was there to help with Becky’s prepping.
Just before their introduction, Becky and Danny snuck a kiss.
The rain held off on the wedding day and everyone was thrilled. Alas, they weren’t so lucky for some of the BBQ. Becky and Danny dashed from the house to the tent under this huge umbrella.
And then right into their second first dance. (Their first first dance being at The Chanler.) Have I mentioned how awesome it is that they get to do everything 3 times!
Becky’s dad was so funny during this speech. He brought one of Danny’s friends up to translate for him. Everyone assumed that Danny’s friend would be translating into Chinese for any of Danny’s relatives who might prefer that. Then he started speaking in Chinese. The friend was there to translate into English! Of course there was tons of laughter and appreciative applause. Apparently he did quite a good job, too.
And this pretty much sums up the whole shebang.
Becky and Danny, we are so excited for you to embark on this adventure together. We wish you all the best and have had such a great time getting to know you better. Have a fabulous time at the Banquet this weekend!
