We arrived on Thursday night, and as we landed we heard about the Miracle on the Hudson...unbelievable! Praise God that all those people survived! We cabbed to the hotel, got checked in, then headed over to Bobby Van's Steakhouse for a DELICIOUS meal! We also had one of my favorite bottles of wine, Ferrari Carrano Chardonnay. If you have the chance to order it sometime, go for it!
Fast forward to two days later when I'm alive and ready to leave the hotel. We went to Rockafeller Plaza, watched the skaters and had breakfast. Then we went down to Battery Park to see the plane, the Statue of Liberty, and a couple of other sites. Look at the ice in the water...it's amazing those people didn't freeze to death.
Missie made a good Lady Liberty, no? We worked on this photo several times and her final complaint was that I didn't tell her to straighten her arm. Too funny.
We walked around Rockafeller Plaza again. Here's Missie in front of the Today Show window. She's such a cutie!
Oh yeah, it was 12 degrees. Not exactly a warm California winter day, huh?!
On Sunday morning, we met Alli for lunch again and had a nice visit. Alli, I really enjoyed spending time with you and I can't wait to see you again!
She didn't know she'd like a dress like this...but knew she was in love when she started sobbing!
When you decide on a dress at David's Bridal, they make you walk down the aisle. : )
Practicing the bouquet toss to Jenn
The bridal party, minus Beks
The beautiful daisy that Lisa gave me lasted a long time. So pretty!

In other news, I've been learning all sorts of fun things about the new camera, so I hope I have some killer pics when I get home!

PS - when we started, I insisted that the instuctor NOT use her whistle, because I wasn't paying ANYONE to scream at me. I may have scared her a little bit.

I'll post photos tonight, but in the meantime, check out pics from the wedding photographer, the talented Sarah Frenzel. She is a friend of my cousin, Sara-Britt, and I met her at her wedding. I've booked her for my parents anniversary shoot, and referred her to Beks...and I'm so glad I did! She does amazing work! She was down for anything and when I showed Beks some fun photobooth wedding pics (that I'd found while blog-stalking), she loved the idea and Sarah did, too! http://www.sfphoto.wordpress.com/.
Rebekah and Brett, enjoy married life and come back to CA soon! Until then, keep smiling at each other like you did all day on Wednesday! XOXO!
Let's get this party started!
Bridal party getting ready

Grace made the cake and it was so cute how excited she was to see them cut it!
These two kids got engaged over Christmas, too! I played with this pic in Photoshop...love it!
Amy and Tomas had to meet up for a dance when they heard their wedding song. Also played with this in photoshop...love how smokey it looks.
Josh and Christy shared a smooch during fun with sparklers. Naturally, I staged this shot. : )
