Brunch on the Lower East Side

What began as an internet friendship quickly turned into a real-life friendship when I met Amy and her husband last September in the West Village for a day of sight seeing. I was so excited to hear from her again a few months ago to schedule another meet up! Amy and Chuck were in town to photograph a friend's surprise proposal in Central Park and met me in the Lower East Side for brunch the morning they flew in. We had a delicious meal at Freeman's, followed by pudding from Sugar Sweet Sunshine and ice cream from Ice and Vice. We had a great time wandering around and catching up! Amy and Chuck, thanks for another awesome day together. Looking forward to your next visit to the Big Apple!

Our Redeye Brunch

The morning after our wedding in New York City we continued celebrating at The Redeye Grill, where Brian and I fell in love years ago. Our friend Caroline set up the most amazing brunch for our family including lots of champagne, appetizers, and my favorite guacamole! It truly was a feast. Being back at the restaurant brought back so many happy memories for us. It was the perfect way to relax with our family after our wedding!



The past two months have been a whirlwind of weddings, celebrations, vacations, and love. We returned from our honeymoon last night and celebrated our homecoming with pepperoni pizza and Friends. I am really looking forward to catching up on life here in New York City over the coming weeks. I have a ton of photos to share from the past few months and am hoping to share a lot of posts with you all soon! I might even get around to sharing my photos from Paris last summer (fingers crossed!). I hope you enjoy following along! If you have any requests for upcoming posts please let me know.


Our final date during our engagement.

The weekend before our wedding Brian and I decided went on our final date as an engaged couple. We had some errands to run downtown, so we decided to find a spot to eat in the Lower East Side. We stumbled upon Black Tree, a restaurant we had wanted to try ever since we saw it featured on the Cooking Channel. We arrived before their kitchen opened for dinner so we had some drinks and made our wedding playlist while we waited. Our meal was so delicious (I can't stop thinking about their burrata!) and we loved all of the locally sourced ingredients on the menu. After dinner we picked up candy for our welcome bags at Economy Candy and sampled wedding cake flavors at Sugar Sweet Sunshine. By the end of the evening we had our wedding cake ordered!

I am so grateful I captured some moments that night with my Instax camera. We were so excited and ready to get married, and I will cherish these photos forever!
