A Rhode Island Fall Wedding - Sara and Kyle

We were lucky enough to be guests at our friends, Sara and Kyle's, wedding last weekend in Little Compton, RI. (A place very dear to me, I was also married in RI!) I have been going to LC for almost 25 years with my family. I used to visit in the heat of summer, but after experiencing two Octobers in RI now, Fall has emerged as my favorite time to be in New England. Not to be disappointed, this trip offered cool, crisp Fall weather, including the beginning of the leaves turning all those amazing colors. A torrential downpour threatened their wedding day, but miraculously, the rain stopped about an hour before the ceremony and it turned into a beautiful evening. Needless to say, with the crazy weather, it was a very New England day, and the made-to-order lobster rolls served during the cocktail hour were the definitive New England appetizer - and I thought I had to share this with you. I have never seen lobsters this freakin' big - they were wicked good!
Our best to Sara and Kyle! We love you!

The wedding was catered by SMOKE AND PICKLES, out of Westport, Mass. Chef Dan George has collaborated with grill masters Chris Schlesinger and John Willoughby on the cookbook Quick Pickles - Easy Recipes with Big Flavor.
