We descended upon the small town of Hartville, OH for Dan and Kate’s wedding in mid-June – my cousin Rick is Kate’s dad.
A giant outdoor (well mostly) flea market was right next to our hotel, so we explored a bit in the morning before the wedding.
After the service, we had a bit of a break until the reception, so Grandma Jan treated us all to Dairy Queen – we were dressed for the occasion.
The reception was at a lovely outdoor venue, but the skies were threatening when we arrived. And then it really opened up. It’s hard to tell from the pictures, but there were at least a few moments of panic as the tent lifted a bit, rain poured down in buckets, and the wind was blowing over vases of flowers.
Eventually, the rain let up, and we enjoyed a great dinner with fun toasts and speeches. Leah took off with my camera for a while, and got this keeper of the bride and groom:
Once the dance floor was open, the party took off and everybody had a great time.
Though we were exhausted from other recent events, we had a great weekend at the wedding – Congrats Kate & Dan!
