We eloped on September 16. To celebrate, we threw a party for 150 family & friends in New York on October 26. I highly recommend this way of doing things, unless you have dreamed your whole life of the white dress (I never did!).
We chose Knickerbocker Bar & Grill, a timeless but under-the-radar steakhouse (they have a big crew of regulars & live jazz on weekends!) in Greenwich Village on 9th Street, the street we used to live on. It's been open for almost 40 years and I wanted a place that would still be in NYC in the next 40-50-100 years.
Here are a few photos from our amazing day, that included great speeches by our dads, brothers and sisters; dancing in the streets of New York; and ending the night at our favorite "Cheers" bar in New York, The Half Pint.
