Katie’s Wedding

Back way up to June…. I have a bunch of trips and outings that I wanted to blog about separately. I was fortunate enough to be able to go out to Cleveland to see one of my besties, Katie, get married. Her new husband Mark is lovely, and I’m so happy for them both! Here are a few pictures.

The wedding dinner was at Noosa and omg was it an amazing meal. Everything looked amazing, but the waitress specifically recommended the soy ginger glazed salmon to me when I asked. I’m not totally crazy about salmon, but when it’s good, I really like it. Anyway, I took a chance and it was SO good. It was a memorably good dish. So glad I picked it!

Doug got the filet which was also very good. But I was really happy with my salmon!

Later on, Katie had a meet-up at a bar for all the folks that wanted to celebrate their wedding. The ceremony and dinner were really small. Actually just family. And us crashing. LOL. The get together was really nice because I got to catch up with Cara and Alex, both of whom Katie brought to Abbey Road on the River 5 years ago. They were both really nice and though we’ve kept in touch on social media, I haven’t seen them since. So we had a really lovely time catching up on everything!
