LB and C.'s nuptials took place on a Sunday. It was a wedding with many an out of town guest, so there was a welcome reception on the preceding Saturday. It was held at the Union League. I meant to go exploring and really take advantage of the access I was getting to such an exclusive, members-only building...but I got sidetracked by actually enjoying the pomp of the reception itself, and the lovely faces of so many of the bridesmaids. The spread included tea sandwiches (or at least they resembled tea sandwiches to me), a cheese plate, a veggie spread, and additional treats that servers walked around and offered us. Those additional treats included mini sliders, buffalo chicken mini tarts, and pigs in a blanket. There were also two bars, which once the full crowd arrived, were much needed.
