Ice & Snow

The first snowfall of the season came last weekend.  I guess it was an appropriate day to see Cirque du Soleil’s Crystal!

My Bridal Shower in Photos

Since I really couldn’t vlog my perfect bridal shower, I wanted to share a few favorite photos I gathered from people!

Can you tell I love donuts?  My mom surprised me with donuts as a dessert and my bestie & bridesmaid Julia took these hilarious photos.

My brother’s girlfriend Courtney borrowed this chalkboard from work and served as the day’s event planner with my mom– they did such an amazing job!  Speaking of amazing, look at this guy with that bouquet!

My MOH Amanda granted my wish of a flower crown!  My dress, which you can see in this photo with my beloved Nonna, is from Free People.

My beautiful bridesmaids!  I have my lifelong friend Chelsea, bestie Julia, future-sister-in-law Caitlin, and cousins Amanda, Christina, and Daniella by my side.

My immediate family, and the girl cousins (the “pretty babies,” as much uncle calls us)!

A few favorite from instagram!  Clockwise: my hometown friends, soon-to-be sister, future husband, and moms!

With Julia, who I’ll be a bridesmaid for a year from my shower; with Amanda, who I’ll be MOH for next month; and with Tara, whose wedding was the first Matt & I went to together!

And one last shot of the flowers!  Big thanks to my aunt for taking so many of these photos.  Fun fact: I was in my aunt’s wedding maybe 20 years ago?  Her daughters are my junior bridesmaids!

143 days to go til we’re #lyontheknot!

Wedding Tasting Vlog

The would have worked better for Wedding Wednesday, but I just had to talk about that Pokémon Direct!  In truth, last weekend was a bit all over the place– we definitely ate a lot, and we got some really cool adventures in as well!

See for yourself:

May ‘Grams

What a month it’s been!  This post is a little late because I took too much vlog footage last weekend… and I think I should have a lot for this weekend too, but you’ll have to stay tuned to see.

For now, let’s talk about May:

[3] The Hello Kitty Cafe Truck was the cutest thing I’ve ever seen in America. [4] South shore adventures & scouting spots for our engagement shots! [5] It’s not exactly Tsukiji omakase, but sushi is still my favorite. [6] Going so hard at the Uniqlo x Nintendo collection. [7] Loving plants so much lately. [8] My hometown girls before Diva & Deepan’s sangeet. [9] Their wedding was the best I’ve ever been to!
