The Rehearsal Dinner
The rehearsal dinner was a small event with immediate family, friends, bridesmaids and groomsmen at the Queensbury firehouse, catered by Dickey’s Barbeque Pit.
The day was captured on film by Jen and Adam Spinelli from “Jennifer Spinelli Photography.” All guests got a recipe for “Spike hot apple cider” with a small bottle of cinnamon flavored liquor and a hot apple cider packet with fall colored Hershey kisses. They had a country, outdoorsy theme to the wedding. The “guest book” was a piece of tree that had the “M+K” heart carved in the center. Everyone signed around it.
The couple took a honeymoon trip to Italy for a week, visiting Rome, Pisa, Sienna and Florence.
