Imagine a wedding reception in a snow-studded Victorian mansion decorated to the nines for Christmas.
The white horse drawn buggy pulls up with the bride and groom in front of the majestic old house.
Several acres of land surrounding the mansion sparkle under the coat of newly fallen snow, sparkling like diamonds under a moonlit sky.
All this and more was part of my niece's wedding reception.
The mansion, dubbed Commander's Mansion in Watertown, Ct., took my breath away.
No matter where we go, I usually tell my hubs, "I like our house better."
Not this time. The Commander's Mansion would be a place I'd love to live!
It was so elegant, so yesteryear and steeped in history, so absolutely divine!
Just enjoy the magnificent decorations all wedding guests enjoyed for the special event and for the magical holidays!
More on the elegant mansion's chandeliers and fireplaces tomorrow!
