Casi and Ben :: a spring NYC wedding! :)

We emerged from the subway tunnels onto the busy streets of NYC at the corner of central park near the hotel where the guys were pampering themselves for the big day! :) The hustle and bustle of the city taxis, tourists and horse drawn carriages were perfectly juxtaposed with the lush greenery and spring feel in the air! :) It was going to be a GREAT DAY for Casi and Ben! :)

Casi and Ben aren’t NY natives…in fact, they are from the great state of WI (yay) and have recently moved to call NYC home together…so photos in central park, with buildings peeking through the trees, was PEFECT for them! :) An intimate ceremony in a downtown Manhattan church, followed by a “cake sprinkle” throw as they left (I mean, what better way to send off  newlyweds from the ceremony when the MRS is a pastry artist, eh?)! The guests were then, escorted by the ushers through the subway to the reception at the Radegast in Brooklyn! It was filled with wooden picnic tables, amazing beer selections and a grilling station for custom brats/sausage orders through the night! :) It was the best homage to their WI roots (I felt pretty “at home”! :)

It was a casual night that was filled with laughing, shared stories and new friendships…I don’t think Casi and Ben would have imagined anything better! :) The city lights escorted them to their car as they drove away into the city to adventure together as Mr and Mrs!!! :)

YAYYY! Congrats you guys, what an incredible day! :) And a GIANT THANK YOU to Mrs. Lizie Anne…I mean, this lady sure knows how to plan amazing events and serve her brides and grooms! :) HUGS Lizie! :) LOVE YOU! :)

June 2, 2014 : Miscellaneous, My story

An island, a birthday and leaving technology!

So I turned 30 in March! And we decided to celebrate on an island in the Carribbean, St. John! Have you been? It was stuuuuuuunning! :)

We hadn’t been anyplace with turquoise water before and both of us were amazed the minute we landed on the island. It was paradise. Pure paradise. We spent our days exploring, swimming, eating local fruit, and breathing in a pace that was much slower than back home! :) You’ve been on those kinds of vacations that fills your cup about 32 times over, eh!? :)

It was a goal of mine to completely unplug as much as possible. And it’s not because I don’t like anyone at home, but I just KNOW that I breathe deeper and enjoy moments more without a cell phone in my face or email within reach (I would argue that we ALL do). So, no phone, no iPad, no commuter! No Instagram, emails, Facebook, Etsy or twitter! It was glorious!!! :) I didn’t even know what time it was for most of the trip…we moved at the pace of what felt right. No distractions. I was able to be fully present! I read a book, I listened to the ocean waves, I deeply talk to my friends and husband, and we leisurely ate dinners…it was exactly what I needed and wanted to ring in this big birthday! :)

It was amazing how little I actually missed when I got home. :) I turned on my phone to find voicemails from friends and birthday messages sending me love. It was like a virtual welcoming committee, I loved it!! :) It seemed easier to ease into everyday life knowing that I was FULLY refreshed and FULLY filled from our adventures. Ya never, know…this might become habit for EVERY trip I take now!

Yay for islands and yay for birthdays! What a trip!!! :)
