harvest table: happy thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is tomorrow! Somehow my favorite holiday completely snuck up on me (finishing up our 2013 weddings and doing some Lovely Day 2014 planning may have gotten in the way…) but I can’t wait to dive head first into stuffing and cranberry sauce at my in-laws house tomorrow. As a somewhat-newlywed, I am still getting […]

destination: maine

I recently had the pleasure of attending a dear friend’s wedding at the gorgeous Newagen Seaside Inn in Boothbay, Maine and I quickly fell completely in love with “Vacationland” (as the Maine license plates so perfectly state).   After dancing the night away under a spectacular Sperry tent, the boy & I made our way from […]

cocktail-style wedding receptions

As B mentioned in last week’s post, we’ve spent lots of time with some of the area’s top wedding vendors over the past few months and on our most recent road trip we met with the lovely gals of Gourmet Galley.  We spent 2 hours gabbing away in their beautiful new office and we were […]
