It was a pleasure to spend my fourth of July with Liz and Kevin at their one year anniversary celebration. They were married on a mountain top on the west coast a year ago and decided to have a reception in Portsmouth for their friends and family. It ended up being rainy most of the day and by the time the reception started is was a full-on downpour. Once you stepped inside The Portsmouth Pearl, the rain was forgotten. The tall windows inlaid with stained glass, hard wood banisters that wound around the dance floor, the flower centerpieces - all of it really- was breathtaking. The night proceeded with some drop-dead funny toasts, great dancing, and a lot of love to go around. Congratulations to Liz and Kevin on their one year anniversary. Wishing you many more! Thank you for making me feel so welcome!
