One of the reasons my parents decided to come to visit now was that my in-laws were planning our third wedding party/reception, so that I could finally meet the rest of the family (i.e. all of Lionel's aunts, uncles, cousins, etc who in 4.5 years together, I had never met). Since my parents had to miss our actual wedding in France, they decided to come out for this wedding reception, which was, in fact, the third celebration of our wedding, only one and a half years after we were originally married.
The reception was really just a nice, long dinner. There was no music or dancing (thankfully). We started with an apéritif outside and then went inside for a very delicious, very long meal. The entrée was a salad with small bay scallops and cepes, the plat was filet mignon de porc with a honey ginger sauce, then there was a cheese course followed by a delicious dessert of (my favorite) moelleux au chocolat. And of course, since we were in Bordeaux, the wines were amazing and we finished the night with champagne!
