The Finishing Touches

I am determined to finish this and I promise I will never put you through this again.

The Dress,  that month of work-on top of all the other work.

Putting together a wedding on your own...a whole other  part of you just  rises to the surface.  It's kind of like that movie "Basket Case".  When else do I go to Macy's... to shop???? ( I can't stand Macy's) and buy 5 pairs of shoes just to try?  Then buy 2 more on 34th street in a fit of panic. (6 hours of returns) When else does my better-half get even more involved than me in planning a party menu & insisting on the (amazing) chef & trekking over to Chinatown on the subway to buy,  lord knows, how many pounds of shrimp,  so the menu is absolutely perfect?

Not a lot of places in life where collaboration is quite like this, this is theater.  Starting  at the top...

Ring- for the groom...

....the heels risk getting stuck in between roof tiles
... another shape, but not what I am going for
perfect style tor my Titania like dress... but do they have the color???
Aldo Shoes, which amazingly makes shoes in my size.
a pouf to match my Kelly at Santanica
And of course the chef, the wonderful John Berninzoni, formerly of Chanterelle.


  1. It's hard to say here which is my favorite part! Everything looks absolutely fabulous!! That dress! Congratulations on all the beautiful selections!

  2. I can't believe that this was a tablecloth, I love it so much! I wondered where you'd gotten the design, who knew that your genius extended that far!
