And those are my friends! (if you look closely, I'm there on the side in a pink dress) They tied the knot this weekend, and the wedding weekend was even more amazing than the proposal. They got married by the water in Newport, and although it was a little chillier than anticipated, it was absolutely gorgeous.

Since Newport is only about 3 hours from NYC, we decided to make a little getaway weekend out of it.. or in practical terms, we could either leave early Sunday and battle traffic or enjoy the day and head back after dinner. So which one would you choose? I'll enjoy my day, thanks! :) We toured the famous Newport mansions- the cottage homes of America's elite in the 'Gilded Age.' Or, as I kept saying all afternoon- Downton in Newport! Jason was sick of all the references and, 'it's just like this in the show!' comments by the end. But it is crazy to think what we love on TV was reality for a select population.
