It's been a month since mine and Justin's wedding, so I thought it was about time that I share our wedding story with all of you (Plus we got our photos in from the photographer). Which started off with the girls and I spent the evening before the wedding in one of the penthouse suites at Hotel Wales in New York City (Thanks to my mother) because I needed to wake up in the city and get ready there for my own piece of mind. So the day of the wedding I woke up around 5:45AM because Emily (The amazing stylist that did mine and the girls' hair) and Jamie (Our equally amazing makeup artist) were arriving at the hotel around 6:00AM to get everyone beautiful for the wedding.
We collectively spent hours getting dolled up as we drank Starbucks and mimosas to prepare us for the day ahead.
Uber to come drive us to the 79th Street entrance of Central Park -- It was only thirteen blocks from the hotel but there was no way in hell I was walking there.
La Lanterna Di Vittorio where our lunch/reception was taking place.
As soon as they arrived I told the owner, who was very accommodating, that they had finally made it and he could continue food service -- I put a stop to the pizzas coming out without my family there. He was so nice he had the waitresses bring out fresh appetizer platters for them since they had missed it.
La Lanterna to head off to Off The Wagon for an open bar that Liz set up for us with our other wedding guest (We had wedding wedding guests and bar hopping wedding guests).
Just as we were leaving Cones it started pouring. Justin was so cute, he stood on the corner in the pouring rain trying to hale a cab for us. Eventually one took pity on us and drove us all the way back uptown to Hotel Wales.
I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed our wedding day, even through the rain, heat, crazy traffic, etc.
