Weekending | Weddings & Bike Rides

Happy Monday friends!! We finally had two nice days worth of weather so you know that means everyone, myself included, spent as much time outside as possible!! Between Friday night relaxing, wedding coordination & Sunday Funday - it felt like this weekend was only a few hours long!
Sam Edelman Espadrilles (30% off right now)
Jackie & I sometimes work with a florist here in Boston that books us to assist with the reception coordination & we were really excited for this weekends' wedding at Glen Magna Farms. This is one of those venues that when the weather is truly perfect, it makes the wedding even more magical because it's all outdoors. The ceremony took place in what can only be described as a Parisian garden infused with New England charm- beautiful flowers & stone arches that made the backdrop gorgeous!! 
The focal point of the reception was definitely the flower / escort card wall! This was dreamed up by the bride & brought to life by the florist!! You may have seen a few behind the scenes stories on Instagram of it coming together!! The guest book was filled with instax mini photos & the backdrop was the beautiful flower wall! 
All real flowers!! 
Checkout the sweetheart table - some of the most unique flowers went into that arrangement! 
Since my weekend was basically one day I was going to take full advantage of the amazing weather! G's only request this summer is that I attempt to learn how to ride a bike so that we can explore not only Boston but other cities on a bike! We went over to Kendall Square in Cambridge and rode along the Charles River Bike Path! I'm happy to report that after Santa Barbara and a few times on a bike since - I feel confident in my abilities! 
We tried out a new Legal Seafood concept out in Kendall Square - Legal Fish Bowl. You basically build your own bowl and add whatever protein like tuna, salmon, shrimp or chicken - it's sort of like chipotle for seafood - so pretty much my heaven! We ended up walking all over the city - sweating the entire time, but we've been patiently waiting for summer to arrive so the heat was welcome! Oh and those espadrilles, totally held up without so much as a blister for over 16,000 steps - that's close to 7 miles of walking! 

How was your weekend friends? Link up below to share it with us and hope you have a great start to the week!

  17. Such a gorgeous wedding! That wall is going to be all over Pinterest! I love your wedding posts! Yay for learning to ride a bike! I need to figure that out again because it's so fun to get around (and burn calories!)

  18. That flower wall is so beautiful! It sounds like you definitely made the most out of your shorter weekend, and good for you for riding a bike! I'm definitely not the most coordinated person and don't know if I'll ever feel comfortable on a bike!

  19. Wow, the wedding reception looks absolutely beautiful, definitely my cup of tea with all the gorgeous and unique flowers! Girl, I don't feel as bad now because I have nearly zero skills at riding a bike, lol. It's crazy because growing up, I was ALWAYS on my bike going around the neighborhood. I hadn't ridden one in years, until we went on vacation to Cozumel, Mexico and Eddie wanted to do a tour on bikes. When I tell you I nearly knocked off the mirrors on all the parked cars on the side of the road, I'm not kidding, lol. It was so scary, but I have to try and get familiar again because like Gary, Eddie wants to be on bikes this summer :/ Anyway, that Legal Fish Bowl restaurant sounds AMAZING and one I'd surely love, too! Thanks so much for sharing your weekend recap with us, beauty, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead!

  26. Legal Fish sounds like a cool concept. The venue for that wedding is stunning, and all the flowers are just gorgeous!!!!!! I think it would be awesome to explore cities on a bike. Birmingham has this new concept that started last summer where there are bikes all over the city that you can rent for a few hours or you can have a membership card and ride them an unlimited amount of time. There are stations all over the city, especially in the most trafficked areas that you can grab one. I want to do a brewery tour with them one day!

  35. I love those espadrilles. I love the flower wall - great idea and great execution.
    And yes, you definitely need to learn to ride a bike. it opens up the city for you in a way you can't imagine otherwise - better scenery than driving and gets you to more places, faster than walking.

  36. I'm so happy it's finally sunny and warm (aka hot, haha), but no complaints after spring we so lackluster this year. The wedding looked so gorgeous-- what a stunning location & those flowers! So glad the bike riding went well-- it's such a fun way to explore.

  41. I knew I'd love this post from the title. I too don't know how to ride a bike and neither does my husband so either my brother or dad will teach my daughter. Your espadrilles are gorgeous, especially next to those pretty flowers. And what a beautiful wedding girl.

    That fish place sounds like something I would love. Believe it nor not I have never had Chipotle but we have one pretty close by so I need to try it soon.

    Happy MonSlay!

  50. What a gorgeous venue especially with perfect weather! Adore the flower centerpieces and the escort wall...how gorgeous and unique! I've never seen one like that before...so Pinterest pretty. Awesome Gary wanted you to learn how to ride a bike so you can start exploring more...it's no easy task at first. I haven't been on a bike in years but it is fun and good exercise once you get going.
