Wedding Weekend #Harrasic

Last weekend, Ken and I had the good fortune of attending an incredibly special wedding in Quogue (on Long Island in NY).  The ceremony, venue, atmosphere… everything… was perfect.  Enjoy the pictures… you’ll meet a number of people who have contributed great content to the blog over the years!


Lynn Rasic - the beautiful bride

The beautiful bride, Lynn Rasic, one of Ken’s good friends from growing up. She and her husband Mike are very dear to us, even though we just lost them to San Diego. #Jealous. Lynn used to be the head of external affairs for the 9/11 Memorial, which led to this post.

Cutest flower girls ever with the most amazing floral head crowns. I want to wear their whole outfit…and even carry around a bucket of rose petals to spread all over.

At every wedding, you meet awesome people. Kenny Lao (he of dumpling fame) was hysterical (and not just because I am married to another Asian Ken). While we had exchanged emails before for the blog posts, this weekend was the first time we met in person. We were all dying laughing the whole time. Can’t wait to hang out with him and his husband John in the future!
