Runner and I attended a wedding on Long Island last weekend. And true to our monikers, I was a member of the bridal party and Runner went running.
We spent our first two nights in town (Garden City) with our friend Jamie. I got to satisfy my everything bagel craving pretty quick. Bagelman was across the street — highly recommend! Then we went to Coney Island which was just a 45 minute drive away. The sunny and 75 weather was almost unreal. Nathan’s Famous was bustling with people and the countdown was on until next year’s hot dog eating competition.
The rehearsal dinner was held at Novita. We were treated to a delicious 3 course meal, including a groom’s cake in the shape of the groom’s favorite food – steak! The cake was a “medium rare” red velvet flavor. The next morning the girls gathered to get ready at the Garden City Hotel. What a gorgeous property and 140 years old!
The bride let us choose our own hairstyles. Inspiration:
Not bad right?
The wedding came and went much too quickly. We had an amazing time. Best wishes to the happy couple!
PS: Major props to the wedding band, The Projekt. They played top 40 hits all night long, let the groom have a trumpet solo, and made me a believer in live bands at weddings!
