Utah wedding celebration with a dash of nyc....

I spent exactly four minutes on rockstar diaries (warning: endlessly adorable photos of endlessly adorable people having endless fun in nyc. visit at your own peril) before I started hounding Naomi Megan for wedding photos. Which, duh, are already up on her blog here and here.

But I also bugged Naomi for details. Here's what she emailed me:

As far as details go, we knew we wanted a more intimate dinner celebration with family and a few close friends in Utah the weekend prior to the wedding in NYC. So we chose an old barn on a pond in Mapleton, Utah for the dinner location. Ruby River Steak House catered and we had a more old fashioned steak dinner with cupcakes for dessert.







After weeks of looking for the perfect vintage wedding gown I randomly found IT in the basement of a little bridal shop in Lehi, Utah when I was in town from NYC for a quick weekend trip of planning. The owner had kept it from a display window she had in the 70's for her granddaughters to someday play dress up with. It was like a fairy tale, too-- It had never been worn, fit perfectly, didn't need any alterations and was a steal of a price. It was bliss!

Other than that, my husband Josh is always wearing the craziest of socks. So I felt the need to compete a little with something on my feet (thus the bright blue moccasins...)

My husband and I met while in school in NY (him- Columbia, me-Juilliard), became the best of friends before we realized we were in love. Anyway, a year and half after the big day (06-19-2007) we still live here in NYC and are happy as ever.

Hooray for love! And nyc girls who throw parties in big open spaces.

  11. Have you heard of the NieNie dialogs? She and her husband are an AMAZING couple who remind me quite a bit of Naomi and husband. They were in a horrible accident and their lives have been changed significantly but you can still feel their love for one another and how they miss their fairytale life.
