mazel tov! my dearest and loveliest friends, M and N. What a beautiful, extraordinary day!

A few things you will want to know about our couple, and about this most special of days:

wedding feet

1) They come from the nicest, kindest, most hilarious families you could imagine. (M has told me of her bubbie's epic fridge stashes of restaurant butter pats and mini jam packages, and how the secret recipe for her famous shortbread cookies has been passed down to her: "Vel, it's very simple. You take two cups of sugar...and thirty six packets of butter...")


2) M herself is one of the most amazing women I've ever met. I have yet to meet anyone who loves anything and everything to do with food and cooking more that her! Well, her new hubby perhaps. I should mention that they spend their weekends tapping maple trees and making syrup, and that N, as a hobby, grew prize winning garlic at his family farm.

3) Also, hanging out with them is pretty awesome.

4) They know how to eat. And laugh. And have everyone join them!
