NYC Wedding #1

Hello, dear friends.  How is your week going?  Mine has been pretty dullsville so far.  But tomorrow is going to be a lot more fun.  I am joining a few friends in Boston to attend an event at the Boston Design Center called Heading Home to Dinner.  Many table settings and bar carts will be on display.  Hopefully, the latter will be handing out some samples!

On with the wedding scoop...

As you can imagine, a marriage license is not easy to obtain in Mexico.  So that is why my #1 and Adorable Jonathon got married legally last Friday morning.  

Initially, it was going to be on Saturday, but to our dismay, the courthouse is not open on weekends.  Neither family could be there because the travel reservations were already in place.

Our #2 represented both families, as well as playing the part of the witness.  She's had a lot of experience.  She has witnessed her big Sis pull some crazy stunts over the years.

The Mister made a reservation at JoJo.  
It is owned by one of the Mister's favorite chefs, Jean-Georges. 

When I laid my eyes on the charming storefront, it was love at first sight.

We toasted our bride and groom and feasted on a most delicious lunch.

The Mister landed a lovely suite at the Essex House, looking out on colorful Central Park.
By colorful, I mean the characters as well as the foliage.

Waiting for our Uber!

We met the Adorable family with the bride and groom in tow at one of my favorite star-spotting NYC restaurants, The Polo Bar

Drinks were served in the library.

They have the best darn bar snacks in the world.

A rose between two adorables.

Adorable Michael, AJ's twin, and the bride are nothing but trouble when they get together.  

We enjoy AJ's family so much.
We are very fortunate.

Not only were we celebrating a wedding but also two birthdays!

I know my wish.
Another wedding!
Lucky for me, she doesn't read my blog.

The happy couple was so cute wearing their wedding bands.  They said that they would wear them during the weekend and then put them away until their next wedding.

On Saturday, we stopped over to see the bride and groom's darling pad.

Next stop:  Restoration Hardware for lunch!

The restaurant is so serene with its shimmering chandeliers and greenery.  It has a top-notch staff as well as sumptuous food.

Our girl and her new father-in-law.

Along with the fabulous eatery, it also houses a very cool bar. 

I know cool when I see it!

RH has a vast heavenly rooftop where one can enjoy a cocktail or two.

Nothing says photo op, like blue skies and a fabulous rooftop oasis.

We wore off are well-earned calories strolling around Soho. 

Of course, I couldn't walk passed without making a stop at my beloved MacKenzie-Childs! 

Are you familiar with the luxury consignment website The Real Real?  They have a shop in Soho!

Not a great picture.  We enjoyed our last meal together at a lovely little Italian restaurant called Mamo.

This is where the Mister is explaining to AJ that there is a no return policy on our girl.

Double trouble!

Two Adorables for the price of one!

Until Mexico!

As I rode the train home, I pulled out the book that I was reading. It's called The Most Fun We Ever Had.   I thought to myself, that's the perfect way to describe this weekend.

Until next time...

Meanwhile, two family members were mildly insulted by not being invited to partake in the festivities.
Those are their mad faces.

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.


  1. Exciting times for sure and a most wise decision to have the legal deal done at home. It is good to know our children find good families.
    Those pups are seriously the cutest!
