After the ceremony, we all went to dinner at The Witches Brew Café.
Karen and I had been there on our first night with our friend Becky. The food was great, the staff were very friendly and best of all they had a small private room (Ideal for up to 16) that we could reserve just for our party. We didn’t think to take photos but this is where Karen had her first ever Lobster Pie.
After dinner, we all went back the Peabody House for the traditional cake. Not only was our room beautiful but the house had a great parlor and front porch that were perfect for our small celebration.
The cake was marble with a mocha filling and came from Niko’s Cakes in Salem. I had read reviews on the net and they were all positive so we had high expectations and were not a bit disappointed. Niko is a real old-fashioned artist and his flowers were some of the most beautiful I had ever seen. We found out the day of that Lisa and Finn really don’t like chocolate so we added a few cupcakes.
Not only was it a beautiful cake it was also delicious!
We visited a bit with the family and my friend Becky. We had already decided to visit Matt’s family in the fall and Becky told us she had a Sweet Adeline’s competition in Houston in 2011 so we knew it wouldn’t be so long until the next visit. That along with the knowledge that we were now off to Maine and Vermont for our honeymoon made saying our good-byes much easier.
