Our Wedding: The Details


Last week Dan and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary. Our wedding was perfect in so many ways and I love looking through the pictures that so wonderfully capture the details of that day. I have wanted to share some of the details for a while now so our first anniversary seemed like the perfect opportunity to finally do so. By the way, all of pictures in this post are from the very talented Erica and Ben of The Ewings Photography Studio. They are the best to work with!

Our wedding day started off at the Langham Hotel in Boston where my bridesmaids and I got ready in one of their suites. The Langham is such a fun place to get ready. Brides and grooms have  access to the exclusive “pink lady” taxi, although we never really needed it since our reception took place across the street. Also, the hotel staff delivered pink macarons to our suite that morning. Such a fun surprise!


As for my wedding dress, my mom and I went dress shopping at a few bridal boutiques before deciding that the dresses at J.Crew were much more my style. The J.Crew wedding dresses have a simple elegance to them, nothing too flashy or overdone. I loved the pretty lace detail of my dress. Although the dress was relatively simple, the lace detail gave it that something special I was looking for.

Apple Cinnamon Butterscotch Muffins

It has now been a few weeks since Dan and I went apple picking. Every year I get a little overzealous and pick way more apples than we could ever possibly need. But I hate to let anything go to waste so I try my best to eat/use as many as possible. Even before I…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

It probably comes as no surprise that I love to turn on the oven and bake when the weather is bad. Without a doubt there is no better way to spend a snowy or rainy afternoon. Baking makes the incredibly cold weather and endless winter storms in Boston just a little more bearable. This past weekend blizzard conditions once again…

Parmesan Crusted Goat Cheese with Basil ..

Superbowl Sunday was certainly a memorable one this year. After a game of ups and downs, it was so exciting to see my New England Patriots come out on top. In addition to the game itself, one of the best things about the Superbowl is all of the amazing game day food. And while I admit…

Blood Orange Cosmopolitans

Citrus is definitely the bright spot of an otherwise dark and dreary month. Although we haven’t had much snow here in Boston, the weather has been cold and less than ideal. There are many reasons not to love the month of January. But can we all agree that the abundance of citrus makes it just a little…

For the second year in a row I participated in the annual Food Blogger Cookie Swap. I love getting the opportunity to spread holiday cheer across the country to fellow food bloggers. And what better way to spread holiday cheer than with a batch of homemade cookies? I sure hope the recipients liked them as…
