Meet Ilan & Casimir- bearers of rings

Meet Ilan. ring bearer. curly-haired 8 year old son of best man matt. has stated that he "mostly likes sitting around". this is, obviously, a clever ruse to insure maximum surprise and effect when he struts into pete's candy store in his custom designed vest and tie. an energetic and strong-willed lad destined to give jude law a run for his money in the looks department, he has been known to break a bone and not let on. for days. you wish you were that tough, but you're not. 

Meet Casimir.  ring bearer. winner of The Longest Eyelashes on Planet Earth contest six years running. cas is an often quiet, reserved gentleman who has written his uncle chris' most favorite ever book about the devil. when not giving the impression that he may likely grow up to paint beautiful pictures while simultaneously penning extraordinarily thoughtful poetry, he is running around like a monkey with his older brother Ilan and younger sister zara.

Wonderful Weekend!

(click photos to enlarge)
(l-r: chris v., marilyn v., paul v., linda f., sarah f., chris f., lamar f.)
This weekend we met up with our parents in Brooklyn. We had a great time introducing everyone and checking out all our favorite haunts. This photo was taken at the end of the weekend while we were having brunch at Enids. (vegetarians take note- meat-free sausage w biscuits & gravy- yum!) And we have to say how thankful we are to have such awesome parents- everyone was so generous with their time & help, and SO creative helping us with venue ideas. Thanks everyone!
And though she is not pictured above we'd like to send a special shout-out to Aunt Rosie! She has been driving up to new york every time we've been in town planning, using her party planning expertise to help us navigate this often confusing journal. Thanks Rosie!

We also got a lot of loose ends tied up- caterer, florist, hair, etc. With only about a month and a half to go it seems things are coming together beautifully!
