Amy Vogt & Rob Harris
July 19, 2003
Amy & Rob were married at the Mount Vernon Unitarian Church in Alexandria. It was a lovely ceremony.
But before there could be a wedding, there had to be a Bachelorette party!!! Accompanying our fair bride-to-be on her evening adventure (July 12) were Ms. Liz W., Dr. Anne C., and myself.
We went to dinner at Paolo's in Georgetown. It was delicious. We got stuck in a short but fierce rain storm - we escaped by visiting a very narrow but lovely purse store on Wisconsin Avenue, and then ran into Third Edition for a quick drink. [We will omit Liz's little "good luck event" from the story!]
Once the rain stopped, we took a taxi to Polly Ester's to dance the night away. Of course, we were not the only bachelorette party with this same idea - when we got to the bar, the only men in the place were the bouncers and bartenders! It was ALL women. (Guys, that's a clue for you - get over to PE's on a Saturday night!) While none of the other bachelorettes had a tiara like Amy's, there was some interesting headgear, to say the least.
Bridal Shower Pictures, at the Wilsons' home in Falls Church. One side of the room was Amy's family, and the other side was all roommates! Amy has had 8 different roommates since she moved to DC in 1994 (not including Rob, of course). That was part of the quiz that we all took to see who knew Amy best. Her sister Jenny won the prize!
Rehearsal at MVU Church and Dinner at Il Porto. Unfortunately, due to rush hour traffic in Alexandria, not everyone made it to the rehearsal. But we ran through the whole thing, and then managed to take over half of the upstairs room at Il Porto. The food was very good!
and finally, the Wedding! Everyone was nervous, but it went very well. Can't wait to see the official photos, taken by Amy's sister Jenny. The outdoor garden at the MVUC was a nice place to have a reception, although it was a little humid.
The newlyweds honeymooned in San Francisco (aka "Frisco") ... Hope to see you all soon!
