Congratulations Aimee and German! ¡Felicidades Aimee y German!

Congratulations Aimee and Germán!

Recently my husband, Brian, and I traveled to Fairfield, CT to celebrate the wedding of our friends, Aimee and Germán. We have been friends with Aimee for twenty years and were so happy when she met Germán, a wonderful person just like Aimee. The wedding was an intimate affair of fifty of Aimee and Germán’s closest family and friends. Germán’s parents, Frida and Germán Sr., and his brother and his wife, David and Janina, traveled from Lima, Peru for the occasion. Linda, Germán’s first cousin, and her husband, Sergio, came from Florida to join the celebration. Of course, Aimee’s parents, Tom and Michelle, her sisters, Meg and Colleen, and brother in-law, Kevin (married to Meg), were there to support the happy couple.

The wedding was held at the Delamar Southport, a lovely, small (only 40 rooms) hotel that catered to the bride’s, the groom’s, and their guests’ every need. (See my review on www.tripadvisor.com) The day before the wedding, we had a fantastic bridal lunch at the Gray Goose Cafe, conveniently located across the street from the Delamar. I highly recommend the “Black and Blue Burger” with a Bloody Mary – perfect lunch-time fare! The lunch gave Aimee’s friends time to get to know German’s fabulous family. On the day of the wedding Aimee treated her friends to “hair and make-up”. Janet from Salon Isa and Cheryl Ann and Kathy from Faces Beautiful helped us all look our best. The following photos are some of my favorite memories from the week-end.

¡Felicidades Aimee y Germán!

Recientemente mi esposo Brian y yo viajamos a Fairfield, CT para celebrar la boda de nuestros buenos amigos, Aimee y Germán. Hemos conocido a Aimee por veinte años y nos da mucho gusto que ella haya conocido a Germán, ¡una persona maravillosa al igual que Aimee! La boda fue un asunto íntimo de cincuenta de los mayores amigos y las familias de Aimee y Germán. Los padres de Germán, Frida y Germán Sr., y su hermano y su cuñada, David y Janina, viajaron desde Lima, Perú para la ocasión. Linda, la prima hermana de Germán, y su esposo, Sergio, vinieron de Florida para participar en la celebración. Por supuesto, los padres de Aimee, Tom y Michelle, sus hermanas, Meg y Colleen, y su cuñado, Kevin (casado con Meg) estuvieron allí para apoyar a la pareja feliz.

La boda fue en el Delamar Southport, un hotel precioso y pequeño (solamente cuarenta cuartos) que atendido cada necesidad de la novia, el novio, y sus huéspedes. (Vea mi reseña en www.tripadvisor.com.) El día anterior a la boda, tuvimos un almuerzo nupcial fantástico en el café Gray Goose, un restaurante localizado al otro lado de la calle del Delamar. Recomiendo mucho el “Black and Blue Burger” con un Bloody Mary – ¡un almuerzo perfecto! Durante el almuerzo, las amigas de Aimee conocieron a la fabulosa familia de Germán. En el día de la boda, Aimee regaló a sus amigas “cabello y maquillaje”. Janet de Salon Isa y Cheryl Ann y Kathy de Faces Beautiful nos ayudaron a lucir espectaculares. Las fotos siguientes son algunas de mis memorias favoritas del fin de semaña. (Gracías a Genaro Tarín, mi maestro de Español, por su ayuda con esta traducción.)
