Weddings Afloat

So the weather is finally changing and the hot days of summer seem to be upon us.  One thing that has always amused me about this area is the brevity of Spring and Fall.  I’m originally from NE Ohio.  There we have four seasons every year.  The winters are cold and snowy, the summers are hot and sticky, and the spring and fall are mild and lovely.  DC, however, moves much more rapidly from cold to hot without pausing very long in the mild and lovely period.

But with the turn of seasons and the setting in of the heat, another thing sets in.  Wedding season.  And boating season.  Here’s a nice wedding on a boat to start off the hot season.  Hopefully I’ll end up on a boat this weekend…

This lovely little Spring wedding took place on the Cherry Blossom out of Old Town Alexandria, VA.  The Cherry Blossom is a beautiful paddle boat that is perfectly restored and functions as a venue for events on the Potomac River.  It has great outdoor space as well as some cozy indoor areas.  Jodie and Tim had their ceremony in a church before boarding the boat.

Then off to the boat!

The sunlight and blue skies were certainly the inspiration for the post.  I’m looking forward to some nice evenings out on boats this summer (working evenings and socializing evenings).

The the evening moved inside for some dinner and dancing.  These two are both cigar smokers and eventually found their way to the upper deck to enjoy the sunset.  A perfect evening.  Hopefully your weekend will have such a sunset.  Enjoy!
