Happy Anniversary!

My mom and step-dad are celebrating their one year anniversary this weekend, so Happy Anniversary to them! I can’t believe it’s been an entire year! The best wedding ever, despite all the jet lag from flying home from Ireland the day before! Love you guys!

Happy Friday!


My Mom Got Married… and it was a BLAST

There was no time for relaxing once my sister and I got home from Ireland, because my mom was getting married THE NEXT DAY. Let’s just all be thankful our flight got us home on time huh? Anyway, so we landed in picturesque Newark, NJ hauled ass back to Philly and started wedding preparations. AKA we drank water for like the first time in a week and got spray tans and our nails done.

The morning of the wedding, my sister and I met our mom at our regular salon in the city so we could all get our hair done together. My sister and I were in charge of the mimosas and keeping mom calm and collected. The mimosas helped with that. After that it was onto the venue, the gorgeous William Penn Inn, for our make-up and to eventually get dressed. I have so many favorite pictures, so I’ll try not to share tooooo many.

They were so so so happy, and it was such a nice ceremony. The reception was a blast full of dancing as well. So much fun, and a perfect wedding to kick off the SIX I have this wedding season (April-September).

Another Post About a Wedding

So, the main reason I trekked home to Philly last weekend was to attend my good friend Ashley’s wedding. We met back in 2007 when I started my first “real” job after college and bonded over our love for vodka and club soda. She and her husband are one of my favorite couples, so I was so happy I could be there to watch them get married.

The ceremony took place in a gorgeous Catholic Church before we moved on to The American Hotel in Freehold, NJ for the cocktail hour and reception.

time to party!

What I loved about their reception was there was really no downtime. The DJ had people up and dancing as soon as the bridal party made their entrance and would let you know when food was being served so you could sit down and eat. It made the whole reception seem a lot longer, and there was no just sitting and waiting for your food. I had a fabulous time and wish them all the best, and I hope they are having a wonderful honeymoon!
