The fun continued at the reception. First of all, a co-worker happens to be a childhood friend of the bride (who is a high school and college friend of Mrs. Kid), so it was cool seeing her and her uber-cool mom. Seriously. This was one really, really cool mom. I can only imagine what it must be like to have a mother who is that cool.
Most importantly to my happiness in the evening, our table was fun. The rest of Table 4 were cool people who knew The Bride from a mix of travel, high school, college, and grad school, so it was cool talking about different aspects of the bride. Things really got fun when the music got going. Cherry Blossom String Quartet did a lovely job with the standard classical and baroque fare through dinner, but after dinner, it became a game of "name that tune." Their playlist included the Love Boat Theme, as well as songs by the Bee Gees and Journey. It reminded me of earlier posts My Funeral (sorry Mrs. Kid), Acoustic Guitar Versions of Familiar Song, and Love Vigilantes and More Accordion Music.
The music and people made for a fun evening. I don't remember the last time I closed out a wedding reception, but this one was big fun.
