attending a wedding as a guest in pennsylvania

 My cousin's son got married while we are on holiday in the States, so I got to attend as a guest with my family and not as an official photographer. I must admit I spent a lot of the time trying to wrangle my 2 year-old and 4 year-old who had a lot of energy and not a lot of patience for a wedding. But I did get some pictures of my family... my parents, nephews and nieces, aunts and uncles, cousins, etc.

The reception was interesting for me because it's been a while since I attended an American wedding. In this part of Western Pennsylvania, cookies are served at the reception. My Aunt Tina and cousin's wife Marlene, made all of these cookies which I think someone said was 100 and some dozen! YUM!

My cousin Annie, who has a cake business called Comini Custom Cakes, made this 7 layer pink, black and white cake in flavours such as red-velvet and white. Amazing! She is really talented and has created some really original cakes as you can see on her facebook page.

I don't have any photos of the bride and groom because I didn't want to step on the official photographer's toes :)
Stay tuned for some photos from our week at Rehoboth Beach, Delaware!
