New York City Gay Pride Parade

The NYC Gay Pride Parade is quite an event. It runs down Fifth Avenue for fifty blocks, and this year it drew a million spectators. With my handy press pass, I got to walk with the parade inside the barricades instead of outside. It was a real experience, and I got some amazing photos. Here are just a few of them:

The NYC Gay Pride Parade started to commemorate an anti-gay riot that took place in 1969 at a gay bar in Greenwich Village. These are the people who were actually there that night. They were greeted by some of the loudest cheering I've ever heard.

First Anniversay

Last week was my first anniversary with my husband, Josh. The top layer of our wedding cake was surprisingly still delicious, thanks to Fancy Cakes by Leslie

My mother-in-law also had my bouquet from Petal's Edge re-created, and it was totally gorgeous. It was ivory roses, hydrangeas, and Picasso calla lilies, among other exotic flowers whose names I don't know. 

And now I'm going to break two self-imposed blogging rules and give you a photo that is 1) taken by someone else, and 2) of me. I just think this picture my father-in-law took is so precious that I had to share it. This is me and my hubby about to eat our cake.

Engagement Session: Rachael + Ben

I've known Rachael so long she's like my little sister, and now she's getting married! She and her fiance, Ben, are so adorable, and I couldn't be happier for them. They are both starting grad school soon - her in developmental psychology and him in civil engineering. Congrats, guys, and I hope you enjoy your photos!
