Having our wedding in Amsterdam was well worth the trip! We had so much fun before, during and after the wedding we would do it again. The locals all speak english and are very friendly. The city is very beautiful with small narrow streets, lots of shops, markets and a rich history.
Well, what can I say about this? Instead of your traditional after wedding breakfast, we decided to rent 2 big bikes that seat 18 people each with 10 peddling. It was a BLAST and a big big hit with our guests, and us too! We rode trough Amsterdam, doing some sight-seeing. We started with coffee and catered breakfast and finished with 30 liters of beer by the time our 3 hours were up. It's a bit unusual to do but we had so much fun and our guests still talk about it as do we.
De Duif is a beautiful historic church that has been restored in the last 10 years. The organ is from the 19th century and sounded great with the music we chose to have played. We had the church for 4 hours for the ceremony and a reception with apeitizers, champagne, wine and beer.
All I can say is "oh my god!" The service was extremely friendly, polite and helpul! The food, oh my god the food was spectaculer!! I rewrote my welcome to dinner speach to fit the Chef's culinary mastery! "Welcome to our wedding dinner party! Bianca and I would like to thank you again for joining us from as far as many of you traveled and being witness to the start of our new life as husband and wife.
Of course we will start this dinner off with a toast, a toast to my beautiful bride, a toast to our love and commitment and a toast to our family and friends, you have made our day far more special. To get married is a wonderful occasion no matter what, but to do it in front of family and friends, to announce it to the world and display our pride in this our union just makes it much more grand.
So, let us celebrate together, let us enjoy the marriage of food and flavors the Chef has prepared and that will be served. Let us have a few wonderful hours of dancing, laughing and fun."
