We had a blast this weekend celebrating the wedding of Amanda and Shane. Shane and Mike have been friends for almost a decade (!) since school together at Notre Dame and we had so much fun getting together with friends that we don’t get to see as often as we’d like.
The weekend began with golf on Thursday with the guys.
The rehearsal for the wedding was Friday afternoon, followed by a lovely rehearsal dinner thrown by the Kappler family. The City Tavern Club was a great venue for the dinner, and it was the first time that everyone got to see one another.

Saturday was a beautiful day here in DC, and Norah and I got ready for the ceremony while Mike was preparing with Shane and all of the groomsmen.
The ceremony was held at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, which was absolutely gorgeous. Amanda was a beautiful bride and the ceremony went off without a hitch. Norah slept through the entire thing!!
After dropping Norah off with Tom and Rachel, we headed to the reception at the Hotel Monaco. It was so much fun to celebrate Amanda and Shane with all of our old friends.
We got to see everyone one last time Sunday morning at brunch.
It was a wonderful weekend, and we had so much fun!!! A big thank you to our great babysitters!!
Congratulations Shane and Amanda!!!!
