Lots of Love

My Memorial Day Weekend consisted of a trip to New York City/Long Island for the wedding of my college friend, Caitlin, to her longtime love, Jeff. It was a gorgeous weekend both in terms of the weather and a fabulous wedding. 

I traveled to NYC on Saturday morning and met up with friends to see the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit at the Met. Needless to say, the place was PACKED. We waited in a line for the exhibit for over an hour (a line that wound around the museum). But it was SO WORTH IT. The exhibit is only up until July 31, so it is definitely in high demand. Just utterly amazing in terms of the textures, the materials, the presentation, everything. The man was a tortured genius and after seeing the exhibit, I am curious to know more about his life.  Both deeply unsettling and inspiring. See it and you'll know what I mean.

After the crowds of the Met, we lounged on the grass in Central Park for a few hours - absolutely delightful - and then wandered over to Greenwich Village for supper at a Mexican restaurant.

On Sunday, we dressed in our finest and traveled to Long Island for the wedding, which was held in a beautiful cathedral. The ceremony was so lovely and Caitlin was positively radiant, more beautiful than I have ever seen her.

The reception later that night was a splendid affair - a chance to catch up with dear, old friends and celebrate the first of us to get married (yikes!).
