MEMOIRS about husband Pieter Vedder, who was a SCIENTIFIC PIONEER in Mushroom Cultivation Education.

{Wedding Elvira & Bob in 1662 Franconian Auberge 'De Grote Waaij'}

Okay, let's continue the 2-day wedding celebration of Elvira & Bob. This time we are with a quite large group of family and friends. We now are at the 1662 Franconian Auberge 'De Grote Waaij' in Well, The Netherlands. This beautifully rebuilt Franconian long façade farmstead, proved to be the perfect choice for having the event. It was a large out door champagne reception with coctails and refreshments. For the remainder of the evening for food, drinks and dance, we all moved indoors. Great ambiance in this 350 year old building, with again delicious food and a perfect taste of the Burgundian hospitality in Limburg! 
Arriving guests (this is my husband Pieter and me...) got all FRAMED, using some funny hats and feather boas of choice.
Auberge de Grote Waaij (sign is on the roof) and here you can see those boas and garments on the hedge for the FRAMING photo... Neat to move for the day into such a building from 1662! 
View from the top on this sunny September 3, 2011. Again 28°C or 82.4°F...
Auberge de Grote Waaij is also a Top Luxe Resort and does also have hotel rooms. 
Lovely setting...
Elvira the bride with her maternal Grandma and her Mom Ellie - my dear friend wearing an elegant hat!
By evening we moved inside the Tiendschuur, like in my previous post, Tithe Barn was the original function of this huge room.
350 years of functionality...
A feisty bride: Elvira, dancing her heart out... to the left from her is Mom Ellie (my dear friend), and me.
Bob, Elvira and me...
Elvira, dancing with my husband Pieter...
Elvira's brother Tristan played a solo on his saxophone on top of the table...
He is a great musician, like his Dad and also Elvira was a musician but has no longer time for doing so.
Tristan plays with the group Chantilly Lace as a hobby... 
His sister Elvira loves his serenade!
By the way, their musician Dad has chosen their names on purpose related to the music Tristan & Isolde from composer Wagner. 
Lovely name for a lovely woman!
The end of a lovely two-day wedding with my dear friend Ellie and her family...
Nice memories!

  10. Dearest Mariette,
    thank your for your lovely comment! Indeed, you are right about the cyber crime, but fortunately my parent in law will stay at our home during we are off. And we have also a good neighborhood and we are living near to one another. We always watch out each other on our home. And I think, it is a very good prevention. :)
    Have a nice weekend.
    Warm regards,
