November 20, 2011

After a busy weekend, Brian and I took some time out this afternoon to enjoy our city.  In all the hustle of the last few months, we haven't had a chance to take a breather and just walk around and take in the sites.  It was a little chilly out - barely 40 degrees today, but that certainly didn't stop  us :)

Here are a few shots from our jaunt around Fremont

November 18, 2011

So, I've been really tired with all the travel recently, and although I've been studying tons about how to use my camera, I haven't exactly taken a ton of pictures.  Tonight, I went back into the pictures from Erin's wedding to see if there were any other pictures that I needed to post.  I realized that I hadn't posted any from the reception.

That being said, these pictures totally need a caveat.  I wasn't planning on taking pictures during the reception.  I wasn't prepared for the awesomeness of the people that were dancing that night, either.  Anyhow.  Here are a few shots of the night, without a flash.  Don't judge.

So, it started with the guys from Shane's family rocking a Blues Brothers dance-off...

And it turned into a Lady Gaga Explosion...

Obviously, not my best work, but totally fun :)

A few shots of Erin and Shane's big day :)

One of the reasons I love Erin so much is because she is just as crazy-psychotic organized as I am.  It rocks.  This is her breaking down the details of the day with Sarah, the hair and makeup artist.

Erin was the most elegant bride I've ever seen.  She spent the day completely relaxed and bustling around keeping all of her ladies happy.  Her personality and grace oozed out of the entire weekend - from the venue, to the dress to the food selections - it was amazing.

I kid you not, this is the backdrop where Erin and Shane got married.  (To prove it, I'm even posting a picture where you can see the first row of chairs and the tent.)

I mean, really.  I thought places like this only existed in the magazines and in crazy wedding blogs...

November 4, 2011

Brian and I flew to New York las week to be with our dear friends Erin and Shane for their wedding weekend.  It was a fabulous (and gorgeous) experience.

On Friday, Brian went out for bowling and beers with all the guys while I joined up with Erin and all the women for a cooking class at the New York Wine and Culinary Center in Canandaigua.  It was a brunch menu, so we made (and dined) on everything from baked apples to scones to omelets.  The smells were amazing :)

Here's Erin, ready to flip pancakes, then opting for the much sassier, sans-spatula method.

The chef then gave a quick class/demonstration on how to make three different styles of omelets.  

And then he sent the class to work making said omelets...

I was so impressed.  What a fun idea and neat way to spend time together before the big day :)
