Hey, wassup, hello! I can’t believe it’s been over 2 months since my last update. The first two weekends of October were reserved for weddings, then Halloween came, birthdays, Thanksgiving, and here we are near Christmas. When I’m not procrastinating on my couch, I’m trying to wedding plan aka not get yelled at by my mom because I am a terrible planner.

Dave and I were able to squeeze in an engagement photo shoot while the weather was still decent. We started in Beacon Hill, my favorite neighborhood, and ended at the Boston Public Gardens, which is Dave’s favorite spot. Our photographer was awesome and we felt comfortable with him.

Beach Wedding

IMG_2797 I attended my first non Persian/Afghan wedding this past weekend. My uncle’s wedding (nearly 19 years ago) was pretty “traditional American,” but otherwise, I know, what a sheltered life I’ve had. The bride is a family friend of my fiancĂ©’s and she and her husband put together a beautiful beach wedding. The weather was perfect, wine and lobster were in abundance, and the reception overlooked the ocean. As the night progressed, light from an almost full moon reflected on the water and eventually paired with a fireworks show.

The dress code was described as “resort casual”; they just wanted us to be comfortable and have fun. My hunt for the perfect dress took longer than expected. Everything seemed too floral or washed me out. Some random shopper at Cusp heard me complaining and she told me to check out the orange dress at the front of the store. It worked and it was on sale too, so double win.
