Diary of a Freelancer: Part Ten

I'd like to name this summer the "summer of the weddings." It's been non-stop since May and each and every one has been beautiful and meant so much to us! This past weekend was the last wedding for us, for this summer, and to top it all off my stunning sister-in-law got engaged... what a perfect ending right!!

Bride and Groom taking a stroll after their wedding on the lovely grounds of Stone House

Last week I worked Monday and Tuesday and then we got up Wednesday to drive to Little Compton, R.I. for the wedding of two amazing friends! (as a complete side note if you haven't been to Little Compton, R.I. you should go it's an incredible area, perfectly "New England" right on the water, and absolutely beautiful) When we arrived on Wednesday we went on a Vineyard tour and wine tasting, had an incredible dinner at the Stone House which is also the amazing hotel we stayed at, and then hung out by a bonfire and made s'mores! The next day was their wedding. And what a beautiful, perfect, lovely wedding it was! Highlights include "Jack" Prius decorated in his wedding finery driving the bride and groom away, the gorgeous bride and handsome groom saying "I do," Their adorable first dance, the maid-of-honor speech given by the sister of the bride with the repeated point that Gina (bride) always set the bar high and we could not stop laughing, more bonfire s'mores, an awesome d.j., and a wonderful new married couple, smiles, laughter, love... I could just keep going!! Gina and Rob I could not be more happy for you! Love you!!

Surprised at dinner! Congratulations!

Then on Friday we drove back to New York City to surprise my sister-in-law for her engagement! The soon-to-be Fiance, Dan, planned a very special evening for Melissa. He surprised her when she got home after a very long and rough week at work with lit candles everywhere, rose petals on the floor, flowers, and of course the most perfect, sparkling, stunning, engagement ring. She said "Yes!" and a lot of "WooHoo's!!" called all of her friends and family and thought she was heading out to a romantic dinner for two, but Dan had one more special thing planned. Both Dan's family and Melissa's family surprised her at the restaurant that they had their first date at. We had a lovely dinner and celebration and we are so happy for Melissa and Dan! Congratulations you two, love you!! xo

Now after a perfect week of weddings, and proposals, and happy couples I HAVE to get back to work, but thougths of such a great week will certainly be distracting today!

Have a great week sweets!
