This past week was spent on the East coast of the United States. Although I have traveled many places in my lifetime, I have not once set foot in the state of Connecticut or in NYC...I managed to do just that this past week. My family flew into Connecticut and spent a week in Norwalk, CT. My cousin, Kyle, was getting married June 11 (so he's happily married currently), so we decided to make a trip out of it. I saw the sights of Norwalk, drove to Mystic, CT, along with 2 trips into NYC. Not to mention, I got to see tons of family!! The wedding festivities consisted of a BBQ/Party on the Veranda at Andrea's (Kyle's wife) Moms house, followed by a rehearsal dinner at Oneill's (where the two met), a boat party/tour in Norwalk, the actual wedding, and 2 trips to NYC, one with a broadway show & the other, a trip to see the 9/11 exhibit and Yankees vs. Rangers game.
The week was long and filled with fabulous memories, but nothing tops my cousin getting married! I can honestly say that I have never seen a bride SO happy and full of LOVE. As she walked down the isle she looked stunning and had the biggest smile on her face. She was full of happiness, full of love, full of joy, and full of content. The ceremony was held outside followed by a cocktail reception and then a dinner reception. If you know Italians, they love their wine and their food; it was a great occasion filled with good times, good food, and great memories!
Here are some pictures that summarize my week on the East Coast (be sure to read the captions!):
