Weekend Rewind (Brooklyn Wedding)

I kicked off my weekend early with a clothing swap.  Christina, my friend from DeSmitten, invited a bunch of friends over for cocktails, snacks and a big old clothing swap.  Christina was also having a little sample sale for items from her online vintage shop, Same State Clothing.   I made out good this time around, I took home a vintage belt, necklace and top and swapped my goods for a vest and the yellow dress I sported to the wedding the next day.

Friday was our second of our back-to-back wedding weekends.  Two great friends tied the knot in the most beautiful ceremony and party.  They were married at St. Augustine Catholic Church in Brooklyn and had the reception at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.  The photo below is from the cocktail hour, which was absolutely stunning and the party was just inside the atrium.  Everything was magnificent and I've never seen Beth and Casey look so happy.  Congrats to two wonderful people! 

For my anniversary gift to Kyle, I planned for us to take a hot air balloon ride.  Fun right?  Flash forward a month, and we've now spent two weekends renting a car and driving to Pennsylvania and still no balloon ride.  I've learned that the weather needs to be pretty perfect to go up in a balloon and our timing has been unfortunate.  Long story short, we had a foggy drive home and enjoyed the rest of a lazy Sunday.
