Spiral of Love: The Proposal

May 22, 2009

With some stealth planning (I always ruin surprises), my fiancé arranged the perfect proposal at Dia:Beacon in the Hudson Valley.  It was just the two of us inside one of Richard Serra’s massive Torqued Ellipses, and the best part is I never saw it coming.

First Pangs of Wedding Envy

May 21, 2009

We were engaged on March 22, 2009.  The event was followed by 48 hours of gushing phone calls and earnest disclaimers that we would not begin wedding planning any time soon.  This calm, rational attitude did not last long.  I quickly entered a month-long gorge of wedding blogs during which I averaged four hours of sleep per night, forgot to acknowledge my best friend’s birthday, and experienced my first pangs of wedding envy, as seen here:

This couple was married at Salvage One in Chicago.  Their pictures sent me into a frenzy as I desperately tried to find an equally chic and wedding-friendly salvage shop in Boston.  I was not successful.  There is no such thing — that I know of.  Do you?
