Cape Cod Wedding Weekend
My husband and I have had such an amazing weekend with friends that we have not seen in over a year. We stayed in the house that the couple rented for all of the wedding festivities. The house had spectacular sunsets and stunning waterviews of Hatches Harbor and the lighthouse. It was fun to watch the tide come in and out from the wrap around porch. When the tide was low it looked like a grassy marsh.
However, when the tide was high, you had these incredible waterviews.
The wedding festivities kicked off with a welcome barbecue on Friday evening, followed by the wedding and reception on Saturday and a farewell brunch this morning. The couple had planned for a beach wedding, however the weather had other plans. It rained all morning and the beach was too wet, so they decided to have it in the rental house overlooking the harbor. You couldn’t have asked for a better wedding. The couple had everyone in tears as they were reading their written vows.
After everyone dried their eyes and congratulated the couple, we were chauffeured around in a trolly for a tour of the area. It was such a wonderful idea! The trolly stopped at various places and allowed us to get off and take pictures if we wanted.
After the trolly ride we came back to the rental house where it was transformed into an amazing reception site. Tables were set up and the house furniture was removed to reveal a dance floor. Since the house was rented, the reception lasted well into the early morning. 😀
This morning we woke up to a fully catered brunch accompanied with mimosas and bloody marys. After many of the wedding guests left this afternoon, a bunch of us walked down to The Lobster Pot overlooking historic Provincetown harbor. The food was just as incredible as the waterviews. I had a bowl of the Cape Cod Chowder Fest award winning Clam Chowder and some amazing Lobster Ravioli Alfredo that was served in a parmesan cream with panko parmesan crust. It was absolutely delicious!
My husband enjoyed the Sopa Do Mar that was brimming with mussels, clams, scallops, shrimp, calamari and fish poached in a provincial style stock. If you are ever in the Cape Cod area I highly recommend the Lobster Pot. The food was incredible and the views were equally stunning.
Tomorrow we leave Cape Cod and head for Boston where we are meeting up with some family that we have not seen in a while. I am super excited! Do you have any recommendations on some great Boston restaurants to check out? Unfortunately, we are only in Boston tomorrow, but we can check out one or two! A girls gotta eat you know! 😉
