It was a great weekend at the Addison, filled with family and friends and capped off with the marriage of my son, Matt, to his bride Rachael. Family on both sides came from all over Canada to help celebrate the wedding.
We started off with a cookout at the Addison on Thursday with about 50 guests being served hamburgers, hot dogs and some fresh caught black drum. Local duo Hupp and Ray came to play the music for the evening. Matt and Rachael were dressed in their finest Monty Python royal garb provided by Best Man and brother, Dan.
The main event was on Saturday. There were too many people at the wedding to have it at the Addison so the Omni Plantation was chosen as the venue. That is our newly expanded family shown on the lawn at the Plantation. You all know my bride Shannon, the Addison’s Operations Manager and best daughter Lee, the bride Rachael, groom Matt, me next wearing long pants for the occasion and Best Man Dan.
A good time was had by all. I was honored with Matt’s request that I perform the service.
The last of the family members checked out of the Addison yesterday, the happy couple is on their honeymoon in Europe and we are back to running an inn. We have a full house this weekend with another small wedding. Breakfast this morning: Muffins-That-Taste-Like-Donuts, fresh Fruit Salad and Croissant French Toast. Gotta go, it’s time to bake the donuts!
