Winter Wedding Wonderland

IMG_4722

You saw the “Milk & Cookie” themed bridal shower.  You saw the Atlantic City Bachelorette.  And now it’s time for the main event.  Milk and Cookie finally get married!!!  Let me set the scene.  We awoke on a crisp Saturday morning before the sun came up, and shortly after got a light dusting of snow.  The bridal suite overlooked Camden Yards in Baltimore, which was a gorgeous view.  We got ready, took tons of photos, and headed off to the church in Elkridge, Maryland.  After the wonderful ceremony complete with the Arch of Swords military send off, we headed back to Baltimore to a lovely little venue called the Belvedere.  The ballroom was stunning and so was the bride.  The dance floor was packed and the photo booth was hysterical.  The bridesmaids even had a little special dance prepared for the guests to enjoy.  I was honored to be a bridesmaid in my cousin’s wedding, and this was definitely one for the books!  I had such a great time with all my family, and it was the perfect end to 2012.  Congratulations Alex & Seamus!  XOXO.

Atlantic City!  What a weekend.  First off, congratulations to the bachelorette, my cousin Alex.  I think we showed her a pretty good celebration, evident by the fact that she wore her tiara the entire time, and even on the way out of the casino.  She clearly did not want the weekend to end.  It was wonderful to get some quality girl time complete with constant squealing, dirty shirley’s, sequins, stilettos, and dancing.  I am not a huge gambler, but I did get into a game of black jack, the Sex and the City slots, and a little roulette as well.  This weekend was definitely one for the books, and I am now super excited for her wedding at the end of the month!

View from our hotel room at the Revel. You can see a bit of destruction left over from Hurricane Sandy. Boardwalk and casinos were pretty much in tact though.

Well, I am looking forward to a little relaxation tonight after a crazy fun-filled weekend.  Planning on maybe a little work out, dinner with the hubs, and catching the Redskins v. Giants game on TV.  HAIL!

Happy Manic Monday everyone!

XO,
