The Day I Kinda Sorta Crashed a Wedding……………………….. A Love Story.

Hey friendlies…

As most of you know, I was lucky enough to be invited to stay out in Cape May at Congress Hall since Thursday along with some other colleagues/friends who do this wedding blogging thing I do, and you’ll never guess what we’re doing right. at. this. very. moment.

We’re kinda sorta crashing a wedding.  

Except it’s with permission – encouragement in fact – from the fine people at Congress Hall.  Oh, and the couple; they were into it, too.

So maybe– ok this isn’t crashing a wedding, is it.  I’m completely wrong.  I can’t cross this one off my bucket list, can I.  DAG NABIT.

Whatever, I’ve got my story, you’ve got yours.  And mine is that I finally crashed a wedding in my lifetime. ;)

I’ll let you know how it all goes on Monday… and whether or not I had to beat up the groom afterwards for marrying a slice of cake with his bride’s face.  That’s a bit of no-no, in my book.  But to each his own…

unless I’m around to kick a butt.

In the meantime, here are some instagrams from the trip so far…

And talk about a blast from the past…


Here’s to a swell weekend for you all!  Hope it’s pleasurable.  In whatever way you’d like it to be.

Oh and by the way, if you wanna see more of my amateur-at-best instagrams from the trip (we’re here until tomorrow afternoon), just follow the hashtag #congresshall on Twitter.  Though I should warn you that you will be positively INUNDATED.  So, sorry in advance… I love instagramming.

xoxo  - Alison

      Hi Shulie, it’s Kate Spade! I got it downtown in NYC a couple of seasons ago. They might still have it though!

      • Shulie on June 1, 2012

        Uuugh, I love Kate Spade so much. Cutest trinkets ever. Thanks, Alison, for the ring and the awesome blog post.. yet again!

    Alison! Oh my goodness, is that necklace J. Crew? I think I may be obsessed with it. Just a tad. Like, tempted to go searching NOW for it. Maybe. Definitely.

    Ps. You are incredibly talented at what you do! Thank you for sharing your knowledge and wit. :)

      Hi Brandy, yes, it’s J Crew! One of my fave necklaces, and I got it recently so I bet they still have them!

      • Samira on June 8, 2012

        Its beautiful! Didnt find it on their website though…

    Samira – I got the necklace in-store so maybe it’s not available online, but I’m not sure… maybe check one of their brick and mortars!
