Todays marks exactly 365 to our wedding! I am so excited and happy and cannot wait to begin TLS's and my lives together. Since I realized I have not yet discussed our wedding on my blog, I wanted to use this entry to share some wedding things with you.
We got our first choice venue and will be getting married at the Battery Gardens down in Battery Park in Manhattan on Sunday, May 2011. (Traditionally, Jewish weddings are not held on Saturdays.) Our first date was on May 23, 2009 so we wanted to get married as close to May 23rd as possible.
From the moment that I walked into the Battery Gardens, I fell in love with it. It was, in my opinion perfect. Lots of windows and no unfortunate looking gold angels, mirrors, or 10 feet tall crystal chandeliers. Just lots of white decor and windows with gorgeous views. Both the ceremony and reception take place upstairs which has two terraces that overlook Battery Park, the Statue of Liberty, and Ellis Island. Gorgeous. The cocktail hour takes place on the first floor of the restaurant. It has French doors that open up into a patio garden with a bar and lanterns hanging from the trees. Again. Just perfect in my eyes.
Unfortunately, the Battery Gardens website does not allow me to save and post pictures here, but here are some that I was able to pull from Google and wedding sites.
Just doing this post has made me even more excited than I already was. I cannot wait until I have even more wedding details to share with all of you!
