I realized a few things looking through my files recently:
- I never shared this beautiful wedding
- I survived 2 major storms in 2012 wedding season (the Derecho in June and Hurricane Sandy in October)
- I love working with sisters from the same family.

A few years earlier, I had coordinate the bride’s sister’s wedding here in DC. When it was younger sister’s turn, the family called me again. Even though the wedding was in Westchester County, NY, I was more than happy to obliged. The wedding reception was being held at Blue Hill at Stone Barns, near Tarrytown, NY with its amazing on-site restaurant and its sister restaurant in Manhattan. Being situated on a farm, the menu was highly seasonal which also meant that we did not what would be on the wedding menu until a week or two before the wedding.
As the wedding date approached, Hurricane Sandy was also approaching fast. Everything turned out fine for the wedding itself but I recalled the drive home from NY to DC was treacherous as the rain began to pour. Eventually, I find out the the bride and groom had evacuated their apartment in Hoboken, NJ due to the hurricane. All in all, it was a wonderful weekend, followed by a sweet note from Mom. — Vicky“Thank you so much Vicky, really, I could not have done it without you. You are one capable and competent woman. My Dad is so impressed by you, we all are. You are like the energizer bunny, you just keep on going until it is finished.” — Mother of the Bride
