Best Day Ever

i thought i had it all figured out. i’d schedule a ton of posts, get married, go on honeymoon and just not look at the internet for 3 weeks or something. of course that did not happen. the wedding weekend took over and i just let go. we got together with our family and friends on a rustic fruit farm about 2 hours away from home, set up the reception (with the help of my amazing bridesmaids) and the rest just unfolded… exceeding every expectation we could have ever had. it was the best day ever.

we are bursting. bursting with happiness and love and just being on a hiiiiigh. an incredible high. if you follow me on instagram you would have seen some pics by now, but here are two more (thanks to our friend Joel). i will share more – and all the details – when we get back from our trip & receive the photos from our amazing photographers. until then we’ll be eating some NYC pizza, because now i don’t have to fit into the dress anymore. welcome back to the family, carbs.

PS: got any NYC recommendations for us? please share in the comments.

  1. Congratulations! Everything looked beautiful and full of happiness.

    Here are a few New York suggestions.
    Elsa, – Fantastic cocktails in the Lower Eastside. Very cozy and moody.
    Big Gay Ice Cream, – The best soft-serve I’ve ever had. I recommend going here after a lobster roll at Luke’s Lobster, – The location in the East Village is my favorite.
    Sing Sing Karaoke, – Super fun, private room karaoke.
    Hampton Chutney Co., – Have you ever had a dosa? They’re incredibly delicious!
    Eataly, – So many things to eat, see and buy. I loved browsing.
    Rabbithole, – The perfect location for brunch.

    Also of mention: Ace Hotel photo booth, High Line, East River State Park, Muji.

    You’re going to have so much fun!

  2. Congratulations! These first two pictures look great, very much looking forward to seeing the others! Best wishes, Pippa!

  3. Congratulations! Absolutely beautiful moments:)

    The Tenement Museum in the Lower East Side offers a great historical overview of what working class life was like NYC in the industrial era and is the only preserved tenement in Manhattan (if you’re interested in that sort of thing).

    The Neue Galerie is an Austrian extravaganza east of central park (80th I believe?) that features many amazing Gustav Klimt pieces, and has 2 great traditional Austrian cafes.

    The High Rise is also nice for a stroll.

    The best part about New York City is just exploring and stumbling upon whatever looks like what would tickle your fancy. Chances are it will!

    Have a lovely trip!

  4. if you feel like delving into Brooklyn at night, these are fantastic bars:

    Doris (the most perfectly designed interior)

    Weather Up (fancy cocktails in a bar without a sign)

    if you are here over the weekend, go to the Brooklyn Flea (Saturday in Fort Greene, Sunday in Williamsburg)

    and if you’re shopping in Manhattan, Duo is a great vintage store in the East Village

  5. Places to eat
    Ssam bar- connected to Booker and Dax Bar and across the street from Milk Bar/ Criff dogs- bacon wrapped hot dogs/ Clinton Street Bakery- go at night for less of a wait and eat theire amazing pancakes/ Freemans/ Yucca Bar (so cheap and good on Tuesdays)

    Central Park(duh)/ Washington Square/Thompkins Square/Union Square- farmer’s market Monday, Wedneday, Friday, Saturday
    Fort Tryon- bring a picnic and check out the Cloisters ( no admission, just donations)

    Brooklyn things-
    Brooklyn Flea -sundays, in a giant old bank/ Smorgasburg- saturday and sunday/ Pies and Thighs- fried chicken is soo good

    Stella Dallas Look/Beacons closet/ Amacord

    Random – IFC and Film forum/ Housing Works( Crosby Street, day/night)/ Bemelmen’s Bar

  6. Here’s to happily ever after!
    I second the bar at the Whythe Hotel; a meal at Red Rooster is a must -do after ‘I do’.
    Finally, a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge at sunset.

  7. Congrats! I also prepare for my wedding and I hope it will be as great as yours!! (Finger crossed)

    There are many things to do in NYC, but my favorites:

    Moma (contemporary art heaven)
    Highline (good for relaxing)
    Backroom (1920’s speak easy bar, sort of secret/hidden place in lower east side)
    Epistrophy (cute small italian cafe in Nolita)
    Ides bar (at the top of Wythe Hotel, good view)
    La esquina in Williamsburg (best Mexican restaurant in NYC)
    Panna 2 (craziest Indian restaurant in the world)
    Elizabeth street in Nolita (design shops and boutiques)

    And for more, I’m gonna post a big NYC guide ın my blog!

  8. Artichoke pizza, there is always a long line but it is WAY worth it. (E. 14th st in between 1st and 2nd ave)

  9. Congratulations! As far as NYC recommendations I’d definitely suggest you take a stroll on the HighLine (start in MePa) , over the Brooklyn Bridge or through Central Park. Check out a bunch of museums during your stay – The Cloisters is beautiful in the fall. Definitely try to grab brunch in SoHo if you can – Balthazar ad Jack’s Wife Freda are both great. Have a great trip!

  10. Congratulations! My suggestion is in Queens ( one if NYC’s five boroughs ). Spend a day shooting archery at Proline Archery in Ozone Park, then head over to Howard Beach for Gino’s Pizza….best pizza in the world!

    NYS suggestions:

    High Line-pretty photos
    Pies and Thighs Restaurant Brooklyn- yummy southern food
    Studio Museum -wonderful art in wonderful Harlem

  23. If you head into Brooklyn, you must try Flatbush Farm. It is hands down my favorite restaurant, possibly ever. I always go whenever I make it back.
    There are many other great places to go, but as I am no longer a NYC resident, I will leave it up to others to give better suggestions. Congratulations on your wedding. Being married is so wonderful, we often ask ourselves why didn’t we do it sooner! Safe travels.

  24. Fun East Village shopping at Trash and Vaudeville and Search and Destroy!

    Eat and drool at Eataly in Gramercy Park across the street from the Flatiron Building.

    I’m jealous, enjoy and best to you both!

  25. Congratulations! Such big face-splitting grins on everyone’s faces, it’s just the beginning!

  26. Hi Diana!
    Congratulations!!! Well, I think it’s going to be the “best day ever” until a little one decide to show up ( I don’t know if it is a dream, anyway!) :) It was lovely!!!

    About NYC, I really think you can not miss this little place called “Bakeri” :
    I’m sure you will have a very pleasent time at their backyard!

    It will be such a special time if you’re able to visit Mrs. Marjorie Eliot at her a apartment on a sunday, look at this:

    Of course, Dia Beacon is unmissable!!!
    We don’t have good pictures here though…

    And these spots…
    Yonah Shimmel , Brooklyn Art Library , Coney Island (even if the amusement park is closed), Szeki, Sweetwater, Spotted Pig, Eataly (a pice of Italy next to the flat Iron Building) , Café Gitane, Van Leeuwen (ice cream)
    We passed by these and left a bit about here:
    we don’t have any kind of sponsorship, so, what is in there is really what we liked.

    Hope you like it!!!
    Have a really good time out there!!!

  27. These are such lovely photos, its nice to see someone who’s created such a rich online environment for other people, be rewarded herself. Congratulations!

  28. You must take a late afternoon stroll around intimate/quiet cobblestoned streets of West Village – Commerce, Barrow, Greenwich, Bank St… during sunset.

    Definitely go to Parisi (over 100 yrs old) and Frank Sinatra loved their bread – get the chicken cutlet, fresh mozz, roasted red peppers on a hero! Less than $10.

    I second the Tenement Museum on Orchard St in the lower east side. Also of course The Met, Frick, Guggenheim.

    Have coffee at La Colombe or Stumptown or Abraco or Ninth St Espresso.

  29. I love this, can’t wait to see more photos. Enjoy NYC , I hope they treat you well!

  30. You make a beautiful couple and I wish all the best things for the future, dear Diana. Big hug to you both from sunny England.

  31. Beautiful and happy day!

I was just visiting NYC for the first time last week and I think my favourite two places were Eatlay (imagine eating and drinking delectable italian everything as you shop, go around 6ish, the space fills up very fast) and Strand (a wonderful bookstore with a level chock and block full of rare finds, I spent half an hour reading inscriptions in classics from several centuries ago, magical).
