Wedding: Gentle Men

Love the huge contrast between the bachelor and the bachelorette prep...

Meanwhile, the girls were just finishing up and I was rushing to the Park Avenue Club across the street to get zipped up...

Lemme tell you, I'm Jewish, it's in my nature to be a *bit* panicky. So, it was no surprise that I was all crazed about missing my shuttle from the hotel to the venue and ran outside in my robe (sans underwear, oy vey!). But let's be honest, it's not the first time I've ended up embarrassing myself in my bathrobe and at least this one was pretty. Without too many stares I made it to my other bridal suite and got in to my dress with the assistance of my mother-in-law, my grandmother, and my good friend, Fashion Tape. Thankfully I was oblivious to the guys back at the hotel who never could get those bowties tied. Oh, and the grooms tuxedo was also a fail so he made one last surprise appearance as Military Man. Shit happens.

Wedding: All Dolled Up

As Miley sings, It's a party in the USA...

Crazy fun amidst the chaos? That was pretty much our morning. We rushed out of the house with plates full of bagels and glasses of orange juice (I think I still have the dirty plates under the seat in my car?!) to get to the hotel on time, check-in, and let the hair stylist and make-up artist have their fun. In our craziness we even packed up the entire steam iron. I ran around making sure everyone was where they were supposed to be, Rosalyn (my closest girlfriend and bridesmaid) managed the checklist, and Casey (my sister and bridesmaid) made sure that we all had a glass of the hotel's finest champagne. The florist showed up with the bouquets, the photographer and his assistant were snapping away and then eventually my mom showed up to make the mandatory, 'you look amazing!' type comments.

Wedding: Love At First Sight

The highlights (details to follow):

We didn't separate the evening before the wedding for a ton of reasons, but mostly because we were already married and had a house full of guests. Even though I had only parted with him a few hours before at home, he was no less surprised to see me in my dress with my big hair and perfected make-up.  So wonderful to have these pictures of such a private and sweet moment.

Wedding: You Are Invited...

Our wedding invitations:

These were printed on heavyweight, ecru board with gilded edged, with navy letterpress. The flourished names (and 'formal attire') was originally done by a hand calligrapher and then used as an image to be pressed on each invite.
