Three of my best gfs are getting married over the next three months, and June was the month of bachelorette celebrations! We kicked if off in Vegas for Sally and Amy‘s joint party at the Cosmopolitan, and finished it off at the Trump Soho for Kristi in NYC. What can I say? We fancy. I grew up with these girls, and it was such a treat to have our big group of friends from across the country all together TWICE in one month. I didn’t bring my camera to Vegas, but I did snap this amazing view of the strip from our balcony on my iphone. Then I fly to NYC a week later, and this is the view from our room at the Trump Soho! I couldn’t get over it. I was obsessed with spotting all the secret rooftop gardens. Staying in Soho felt like such a luxury–obviously a favorite neighborhood, and so wonderful to be able to walk everywhere from our hotel. ^The bachelorette, Kristi, her sister-in-law, and sister. ^Fun to see citi bikes all over! ^Brunch on the roof of Hotel Chantelle was so festive. They had 92 cent cocktails and half way through our meal an amazing jazz band started up! I loved the vibe (and the food) there. ^They had bocce ball by the pool. Why are things on rooftops more fun than on the ground? Congrats to all my brides-to-be! I love you girls.
I’m loving these photos of grooms seeing their brides for the first time on their wedding day. What’s your favorite? They’re so sweet and kinda funny! I like the idea of arranging a private moment together before the ceremony. It takes a little pressure off walking down the aisle–although that surprise element is pretty sweet too.
