The wedding bliss continues: my dear friend and longest-running roommate got married on Saturday. I am still beaming with love and happiness for her and the lucky groom. It was such an honor to be a part of the ceremony and watch her make the biggest commitment of her adult life. She is one in a million friends.
Wedding season is in full swing for us! We have a wedding a month between now and the start of 2014 (including our own). And the engagments keep coming too–I just love reasons to celebrate our friends! A few weekends ago we attended a gorgeous brunch on the rooftop of the Nomad Hotel in honor of our friends. The setting lovely, the weather just-right, and the couple as sweet as can be.
When Adam and I got engaged, I had big plans to keep things small. I was thinking twelve people for dinner would be just lovely. Well, I was overruled and we are having the exact opposite of twelve people for dinner by every definition. Cue the comfort cocktail. As such, it took a wee while to pick a place and shape our plans. The only wedding component that was an easy decision for me? The stationery of course! The lovely and talented Mr. Boddington’s Studio was up to the job (thankfully). The first order of business was our save-the-dates.
Prior to starting my new job, I spent a few days down south finalizing some wedding plans. I’ve shared my checking-things-off-a-list affinity before. And as those of you former brides know, planning a wedding is a series of massive lists that double in size when you’re not looking. None of my list-checking-off would have been possible without the lovely Lisa, planner extraordinaraire. She set up meetings, kept us calm when some of our vendors under-delivered, and transported us from city to city, show tunes soundtrack notwithstanding. A word: invaluable. Her birthday happened to be a day later, so I felt compelled to send her a little birthday love.
