Oh What a Year!! Part II


In July ALV and I went to LBI for 4th of July and spent the weekend with my family. 

JLP, ALV and I. 

I was in charge of the gender reveal for Steel Magnolia and loved putting together the blue confetti cannon.   It's a boy :)

DFH and I attended Bob and Hope's wedding in Pittsburgh

In July Oliver had some minor vet work on his neck and was forced to wear a sweater during the hottest month of the year.  


In August I had my wedding hair trial back in NJ.

We sent out all of our wedding invitations to guests. 

SRW traveled from NYC to Pittsburgh for the weekend for my bridal shower. I loved showing her the great city views from the top of Mt. Washington.  ( Sorry for the blurry picture)

Two of my bridesmaids LES and ALV threw me an amazing bridal shower in Pittsburgh at a local bed and breakfast. (I promise full post on this shower next week). 

My whole family came into town for my Pittsburgh shower.  It was such a special day!

DFH and I took a final trip home before the wedding for engagement pictures and to meet with our band and do last minute wedding planning.

I had my bachelorette party over Labor Day weekend with my fab maids on LBI and in Atlantic City. 

I loved celebrating in one of my favorite places....

.....With some of my favorite people.

One of the best weekends ever!!


We attended Kate and Ian's awesome mill wedding in New Jersey. 

Hanging with BB and JM

I headed up to Cape Cod for Jocelyn's wedding, and loved getting to spend time with these two girls.

ALV, LES, and I traveled to Martha's Vineyard while we were up in Cape Cod.

On October 11, 2013 we had our rehearsal dinner at Beneduce's Vineyard ( full post to come)

On October 12, 2013 we got married !!!
These pictures were taken by the super talented Jacqueline Foxx Photography
I know it is cliché, but it was honestly the best day of our lives. 

After the wedding DFH and I spent the week in Riviera Maya, Mexico for our honeymoon. 

We enjoyed being tan for once and it was so nice to escape the chilly north east and lay on the beach all day. 

We also loved being tourists at Chitiniza one of the famous Mayan ruins and one of the seven wonders of the world. 


DFH and I spent the weekend in Bedford Springs. 

We went to a Pens game with ALV and BS. 

We attended Drew's surprise 30th birthday

DFH and I spent Thanksgiving weekend in NYC with my family and grandparents.  

While in NYC I saw Beautiful the Carole King musical which was incredible and had the best music.  

December :

I attended our Junior League holiday luncheon. 

DFH and I made our first ugly sweaters for an ugly sweater party.

I met Steel Magnolia's  adorable baby boy. 

We dressed up as golfers for our friend Jake's 30th birthday golf party.  

DFH and I enjoyed our third Christmas Tree together.  

We ended 2013 celebrating BS 's 30th birthday with all of our friends. 

Cheers to 2013!!!!
