A New York Wedding

Hal's little brother got married in New York earlier in April. We were pretty happy they decided to do it in New York since it's just a short bus ride away, and we love any excuse to spend time in a fun place with people we love. It was most of Hal's family's first time in New York, so it was SO fun to see it all with them.

In true New York fashion the pizza place they wanted to use for the rehearsal dinner was over crowded, so we got the pizza to go, and legit ate it on a street corner. That was probably my favorite part, because it was so memorable.
The next day we were up bright and early for their ceremony at the Manhattan LDS temple. The wind made it a bit chilly, but the sun came out and it ended up being a lovely day.
We had such a good time in New York with Hal's family. It was seriously a blast hanging out with them all day. And I'm ashamed I didn't get any pictures with his family. I was too busy enjoying myself to take anything more than a selfie with Hal. 
Hal's parents threw the most adorable luncheon in Central Park you've ever seen. No joke. They had these adorable little bagged lunches with mini baguette sandwiches in them. And when you have a wedding luncheon picnic in Central Park, not just the photographer is taking pictures of you. 
If you're looking for the perfect wedding skirt, I'd highly recommend this skirt by Chichwish. It will take a while to get to you, but I had tons of compliments on it, and it's perfect for spring and summer weddings.
Right before I left my boss gave me some recommendations for places to try near where we were staying in Chelsea. I can't stress what amazing recommendations they were. Go to the Donut Plant. Go. Run. And order a creme brulee donut and it will melt away all stress that exists in your life with it's deliciousness

And if you're ever near the flat ion building GO to Eataly. It's this amazing collection of foods from Italy, and restaurants that cook all that delicious food. We ate at Le Verdure, their vegetarian restaurant. It was one of the best meals I've ever had. Everyone loved what they ate, and the flavors were out of this world. Our family loved it so much, they went back on Sunday after we left New York. It's that good. And get the gelato, because let's be real, dessert is where it's at.
Congrats Dane and Kellie!

Great wedding!! I just loved watching all these photographs. Sounds like everyone enjoyed rehearsal dinner! Isn’t it? I am also going to a destination wedding at one of the most beautiful Chicago Wedding Venues. I am really looking forward to it.
