Congratulations Ben & Karen!
Some of you may have noticed that I have been MIA the past few days. We have been in New York City celebrating the marriage of a wonderful couple: Walker’s brother, Ben, and his new wife, Karen!Walker and I flew into NYC on Thursday evening and were lucky enough to stay at his aunt’s GORGEOUS Brooklyn brownstone in Park Slope. We spent Friday and Saturday eating bagels, prepping for the wedding, enjoying family dinners, actually using our legs to walk around (we didn’t have to drive anywhere for 4 whole days!), meeting my girlfriends for coffee (thanks for the pictures Daniella!), celebrating at a pre-wedding cocktail party, and absorbing every bit of love and family time. Neither of us have family in the LA area so family get-togethers are few and far between. We made sure to milk it for all it was worth and spent some serious time bonding with his amazing family.
The ceremony was on Sunday at this incredible space called The Green Building, which is a converted brass foundry turned event space. The celebration was wonderful and perfectly suited to honor the happy couple! We had lots of great food, lots of booze, and LOTS of fun (and an embarrassing number of photos to prove it… uh oh. Blackmail?)!
It was so beautiful to watch Ben and Karen share this special day with both of their families, who were one big happy family by the time all was said and done on Sunday night. They are one of those couples that are truly the perfect compliment to one another and make each other better by being together. So congratulations Ben and Karen! And in the (paraphrased? Sorry if I botched it!) words of Walker’s incredible mom, “You’ve done the hard part: you found your person. Now you just hold on for dear life and ride it out.”
