I said after my brothers wedding I would have awesome pictures.. And while I have a few images from the weekend. I realized… I didn’t take a picture of the happy couple. Well, minus the few I snapped with my iPhone. Truth is, I wanted to enjoy myself, and while I enjoy taking photographs, it was nice not worrying about taking pictures. They hired the wonderful Michelle, who is the owner and photographer of Dimery Photography! So I left it to the professional! She also gave me permission to share the sneak peak which we all LOVE. We can’t wait to see the rest!
Check out her website and like her facebook!
But now onto the weekend..
We started Thursday off way too early for my liking and flew up from BWI first thing in the AM. Dunkin Donuts is a recurring theme in this trip.
After we landed, got to the hotel and changed we went exploring in Newport. We ended up at The Black Pearl for lunch and sat outside. Although we ALL forgot sunglasses and it was painfully bright out.
My Dad and brother got Duck Salads while my little sister got a huge bacon cheeseburger!
We took a walk around the harbor and stopped in a few shops!
For dinner we went to Duffy’s Tavern and Restaurant, where they have Chicken Maryland, and Maryland Crab Cakes. The Chicken Maryland was delicious!
Of course they had to get Lobster!
And more and more and more seafood!
Fell asleep at the decorating party, woke up with a fluffy dog on top of me.
Friday was a day of setting up and getting everything ready at Camp Hoffman.
We had signs to make and centerpieces to put together, along with other decorations and lights to hang.
Their guest book!
Friday Night was the “Rehearsal Dinner” where everyone in town was welcome to join at Salvation Cafe!
Guess what.. My dress had pockets and that makes it 100x’s better.
The R2-D2 card box is actually a trashcan my brother hand painted!
The table numbers. You got a crab badge if you were on Erik’s side or an anchor badge if you were from Kelley’s side!
On the RSVP cards we were asked to draw a pictures or decorate the back of the card and they were on display for everyone to see!
The instagram photobooth pictures can be found at @anchorandcrab or #camphohl on Instagram. They are hilarious!
The cute table decorations and centerpieces!
S’mores, cakes, pies, girl scout cookies, ect… How can you not love this?
The chocolate anchor and crabs!
There were various tables with different kinds of games and Erik made their very own cornhole game!
Camp Hoffman was the Girl Scouts Camp that Kelley went to as a girl. The ceremony was right on the water and the reception was at the Dining Hall. It was so beautiful!
The horse mask was a HUGE hit!
Instead of the traditional champagne toast, everyone got a shot of Jameson.
Erik, He is your father! and the campfire to end the night!
The last Dunkin Donuts of the trip!
Sunday we had lunch at Crazy Burger, drove around, stopped at Point Judith and gave my sister a temporary comb over.
And while we were waiting for our flight home, I kept us entertained with the Face Swap app!
I am still working on my wedding gift to the happy couple and will be sharing with you all after they see it first!
